Greetings from İstanbul, Turkey.
I'm a 45 year old guy, married, had one little boy. My profession is(was) Architectural Restoration(Stone, Wood... old buildings in general), now i make silicone molds on order in my workshop.

I'll be a 2000 Xantia Activa 2.0 HDI(109) owner in a few days. I will try to make Activa great again(Oh not America, Donald, Activa!) :) It has still some issues to fix, try to fixing step by step and by the way renew/redintegrate most of it's parts as much as i can.

However i miss this topic and already ask for a few things, you guys had almost immediately answered. Thansk again...

It's good to be here :)

Thanks Neil,

You're right, underneath wasn't bad as i expected, at least it's a 20 year old car and most of the car owners in Turkey didn't care so much about their cars. It has a winter pack; according to the mechanic, this car must be come to Turkey from a norther country, maybe Ukraine-Russia etc...
Whatever, i'll try to give much more care than it's previous owners, it will be a challenge of course, but i'm ok with it :)
