The vendor purchased this 1992 Citroen XM SEI Auto direct from the TV production production company, after it featured in a 2020 episode of Flipping Bangers (see:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8‑uWcgAk8ys). In the programme, it was claimed to be the best XM left in the UK, and although the vendor doesn't claim this himself, he feels it is very original and unmolested with no significant corrosion and has never been welded.

During the show, it was fully recommissioned with new cambelt, water pump, front spheres, and wheel bearing. Since then, while the car has needed no major repairs, but  the vendor has carried out minor maintenance and improved the car where necessary, including replacing the four remaining spheres/accumulators and changing the LHM, getting the original radio functioning again, treating the underbody pipes, clearing the drain pipes, flushing the breather system, replacing the roof aerial base and mast, renewing a steering rack gaiter and replacing the rocker cover gasket. The vendor feels that the car is in very good working order and ready to be used, and is only selling because he has too many other classic cars and does not have enough time to use it as it deserves.

As a higher-spec UK market car, this 1995cc automatic has a full wood and leather interior, air conditioning, alloys and lots of electronics. Series Is, as here, are regarded as the most desirable XMs, with their more stylish dashboards and purer looks. The XM model itself is generally regarded as the last of the 'proper' big Citroens with its hydropneumatic suspension and very distinctive angular Bertone shape. The current mileage is recorded as 95,198 miles (albeit not warranted) and two former registered keepers are noted.

The paperwork folder includes the V5C and current MoT certificate, plus previous certificates from 2020, 2019 and 2018. There's also the original Citroen document wallet with owner's handbook, radio/cassette player instructions, dealer directory and location map, and service book, which goes as far as 83,770 miles in October 2007. The receipt for the original purchase, at a cost of £18,997 in October 1992, is also part of the file.
