This was my usual daily driver.



Occasionally, I would get the depot manager's van, a little older but hardly used and with air-con.

My CX had the rolling drum dials and rocker switch indicatiors. I never got bored of the dials and the rocker switch was so intuitive to use day to day. Radio between the seats was bonkers though.

All the XM hatchbacks have the spoiler. Looking at the paperwork, that car has had some major tittivating, bodywork and such... the coated chromework was poor, most of them had some corroded bits. The dot matrix display is still working though, lots of those have failed now.

The XM should have a Clarion radio cassette under the flap, not that monstrosity that's been fitted. Press the button below and the damped flap goes up and in, really neat like a mini garage door. I do prefer originality...

I remember the dials on the CX, real wierd. In fact, the whole dash was weird! The weirdest thing on the XM was the foot operated parking brake, the whole setup really suited an auto gearbox, rather than a manual.

Wasn't the XM the last car made with a single spoke steering wheel?

Possibly, the later phase 2 cars had a two spoke affair, similar to the Xantia.
