    Hmmmm.... It is making my XM look a little over priced.

    Jeez, next thing I know all you guys will be out there in XMs! Just as well cause it's bloody hard trying to Cit Wave in an XM. Most other Cit drivers don't even recognise it!

    BTW - Continental Cars in Sydney recently sold a 91 XM they had there for a while. Turns out it was Jana Wendt's old car. She bought it new when she traded in her CX that she had also had since new.

    Who has the XM and/or the CX now?

    :p

    Craig, et al,

    I think it is going to be a while for real values to stabalize on XMs, I would say that your car from your description is better than good value, known history and sold through a reputable dealer.

    We are seeing ads for IMHO very cheap XMs but without investigating, these cars could be piles of junk. There is no doubt that people who bought new, would have a very dim view of the resale value. (poor Jana Wendt don't s'pose she's about in a new C5 )

    Lets face it there are some bargains to be had, and soon we should see very happy owners of second hand XMs who know the value of a good wave having paid quarter of new price. If I had forked out $80,000 for new I think my wave would be a bit sad too.

    Cheers

    It's had a tap in the snout as well. Not all that hard but I think you'd want to source some second hand panels before you started.

    Andrew,

    there's probably nothing there you couldn't fix if you have a nibbler & a MIG.

    Before you get excited price from the UK, Bonnet, F & R bumper, grill, headlights, fog lights, 4 indicators lenses, rear bumper, rear quater panels, hatch (may be fixable), rear inner guards etc... I think you'd end up with a frightenly steep bill for parts, now add shipping, import duties, & GST to the parts.

    Of course you could just take the cheap way, buy a WHOLE 'XM' from the UK for about 200quid, import it and wreck the sucker for parts

    seeya,
