Low miles...

Post by Philip Chidlow » Sat Jul 08, 2006 7:47 pm

Just as a matter of interest, who's BX has the lowest recorded mileage (genuine, it almost goes without saying :lol: )?

My guess would be there isn't one with less than 30K... prove me wrong anyone? :D

My TZD had 42 on the clock when I bought it, it now has 63 but I have no idea if those are genuine miles, it may had had a dash pod or something.

My 16v is creeping up to 67k now but I know where there is a diesel BX in storage with under 30k on the clock think it is around the 27k mark not sure of the model but it is mint apart from having no windscreen in it at the moment.

Had an AX GTi at the beginning of the year on a K plate with 29k on it, but swapped it for an Activa :lol:

My 16v is on 103k. Dad's GT is around 186k, so I doubt thats going to win :wink:

61,000 on the eBay St Tropez just picked up from Hythe.

Indicated 78,000 on the eBay Meteor, actually around 89,000 because it ran for about a year with a failed speedo.

an indicated 164,000 on the other Meteor! Although, I have no documentary evidence, and I know at some stage it had a binnacle change because the speedo cable failed... owner couldn't be bothered to fix it and relied on the rev-counter to guess his speed... and then that packed up. So he said.
