After selling the XM, I have been on the look out for something to replace it. I believe I have now found it and I'm off shortly on a roadtrip to go and get it.

This time the trip is only to Dunstable rather than Ipswich, and I'm getting a lift opposed to the train.

My journey starts at 9am.

French again. Autotrader advert at a large car sales place.

Car sales place clearly don't know what they have and are selling it as the wrong model

Didn't know that! These V6 Activa's are white ravens, on the Zandvoort circuit it outrun a NSX... That trick suspension is truely remarkable. But I believe they made a 4pot turbo Activa as well?

So that's what you're pickiing up now... wink

That's it. Don't think they know what they have. This will be my second Activa, and the only car I have had two of. It's a late phase 2 car.

Anyway, my journey has started. My first lift from home to Eastleigh

Activa's are very underrated, please find below linl;

Apparently the Active corners better than a 996 GT2!

It seems Mclaren's MP4-12C suspension is quite similar to the Activa. It's a very clever piece of kit.

Yep, very clever car...if its all working correctly. I took my old one to the alps twice. Here is the picture.



I sold it with 143k and a slipping clutch in the end.
