Citreon Xsara VTS
72,500 miles
MOT 18/12/17
Black in great condition for it's age, few minor scratches and trolley dings as you'd expect but nothing noticeable really.
Cambelt was changed (will check date and mileage)
Just had full service: fully syn oil and filter, fuel filter, pollen filter, BMC replacement air filter (in standard airbox), spark plugs and gear oil.
brand new front discs and pads, suspension top mount bearings and wishbone P bushes
Also has a stainless OE replacement center and rear box. Sounds slightly louder than standard with normal driving and gets abit louder if higher up in the revs.
Interior is in good condition, seat bolters fine and everything works as it should (except aircon- just think needs a regas as was working)
Has a straight set of gti6 cyclones fitted on correct Tyre size
Engine is one of the sweetest I've had, starts and runs great. No tapping or other noises atall. Pulls very well, uses no oil or water.
Gearbox changes perfectly
Steering feels tight and rear beam is nice and free moving as should be with no bad camber
£1250 OVNO
These are rare especially with this mileage (I know the silver one is cheaper and has been for sale quite awhile) but this has just had several hundred in new parts and is a tidy reliable rare motor

My cheaper silver one has been for a sale for a while and you'd be hard pushed to find one better with a full service history and numerous new parts in the 3 yrs I have owned it. The reason its still for sale is because I haven't had one single person come to view it.
I hope you have better luck than I'm having!!

Bigsii... Yes unfortunately the xsara is a lot less well known and also less favoured than the gti6. Which is a shame as it's the same power but actually better gearbox and steering lock!! They are great cars and a lot of car for less money .. all the 6s for sale recently are obsured mileage and prices!!

Yes The 6 may be slightly better looking than a phase 2 xsara but sitting on cyclones and in black this actually looks really smart. And as said... It's basically a 6 with a much stronger better gearbox in my opinion..
6 boxes are made from chocolate, the lock to lock is ridiculous and changing gears every 5 seconds is bloody annoying. Much prefer the VTS box

Does it indeed have a better gearbox? Do you know any particulars on this? Will it plug&play fit a 6?
Is it lighter than a 6' gearbox?

The VTS is known to be a stronger box than a 6. And lighter as 5 gears not 6! And I much prefer the longer ratios. They rev nicely with this box. Direct fit on a 6... It's the same engine!! To achieve the better steering lock once fitted to a 6 you would just have swap the pas ram for a normal non gti6 one Smile

they're not chocolate, that's the MA box on the TU engine.

granted they don't like slicks and an extra 100+ LBFT, not many gearboxes are.
