X3 Taxi

A first maybe?

Space grey, black leather, auto 'box, electric tow bar. folding dipping mirrors and heated seats.



The unusual extras are a Sheriff taxi meter and an Icom two way taxi radio with a mag mount ariel and a wireless remote controlled LED illuminated Taxi roof sign.









I have been using it for a few weeks now and the customers seem to like it

I love this taxi I would be well impressed if my local firm turned up in a new X3 instead of the clapped out Renault they normally use!

It's the corporate tax dodgers that I ferry to and from the Airport that help pay for the X3!
