My XM is a Series I car. As usually happens with old CitroŽns, first series were more agressively designed (i.e. less conventional) and, as time passed, they redesigned it to become a more common car. In the XM case, main differences were inside the car, as all the dashboard was redone in Series II (July 1994). I prefer Series I dashboard but, you know, this is just an opinion. Externally, Series II reduced the rear spoiler (bad move!) and had a redesigned front, with the logo centered (I prefer Series II on this)

XMs were offered with several engines, from 2.0 carburettor to 3.0 V6 24V petrol and 2.1 to 2.5TD diesel. Mine is a mid-range petrol, a 2.0 Turbo CT (Constant Torque) engine, delivering about 145bhp (there was a later 2.0 Turbo CT which delivered 150bhp). I find this is a powerful enough car and fuel consumption is not excesive... But, remember, this is a big car with a perhaps 15 years old engine design so don't expect to get high mileages from it. Anyway, I am happy with the 10.5 liters/100km average consumption I get.

Engine bay, despite the picture first impression, is not too crowded (look at a 3.0 V6 24V and you will see the difference!). In fact, you can see the ground from engine bay in my car. Try this on a 24V :-)!

Different rear light clusters

One thing that car has had since I got it is different rear light shades. Here you have some pictures to show it:

I hope to locate a 'correct' right one
