The Opera version of the SM doesn't really do it for me. I think I'd prefer to have the standard 2 door version. European spec though. The US version was denied the plexiglass headlight covers and turning headlights which were replaced by ugly round, fixed units.

However, my wife tells me that if I ever buy an SM (she thinks they are ugly, and has heard how much an engine rebuild costs on one) I'd better get a good divorce lawyer at the same time.

Maybe I'll be able to persuade her to let me buy a right hand drive DS23 efi to go with our left hand drive DS20? That is almost as fast as an SM, having 143bhp vs the SMs 170bhp, but comes clothed in the DS's lovely curvy body.

The CX is beautiful. Has actually been up for sale before. Am very tempted but can't justify / afford at the moment.

In terms of SMs... have you seen the one here:

Imported from Italy a few years back.

No - bit too general.

Member of SeMantics though - the UK SM owners club...
