Oh dear, I don't wish to put the mockers on things but it doesn't sound good.
Could be blocked rad? water pump, or the cooling fan hasn't worked or as you say thermostat.
Still its nice down in that part of the world, rather you than me, good luck. Ken

Rad not getting hot at all? Head gasket. I hope not but I'd stake a pint on it. Gas pressure builds up in head and circulation stops. Took me months to work out why but that is almost certainly it.

Jon, i might be able to put him in touch with a couple of friendly BX16v owners if he's very stuck and in need of a local garage recomendation. If he's still stuck then PM me and i'll get you contact details! Thats if one fo them doesn't pop up here first!
