Never seen anything on ebay.ie - I was looking for a while but good luck.

The point of the 4 door coupe/hatch Marty? No idea, just a styling exercise I think

Justin - is there any chance of some photos of your van both outside and in as I wonder how feasable it would be to create a replica from an estate - or indeed a mini camper conversion based on an estate... Hmmm :?

That camper looks a little ugly, I quite like it though :)

The genuine 2(3) door BX van was a known variant in Norway.
Seen a single one here in DK - obviously only very few made it here in DK. Suspect they may have been surplus from norwegian importer.

Never seen a Dyana though - but it sure is a beuty :)

A camper conversion has got to be worth doing, even a 4 door estate, has anyone done it?

I think we should all try and make our own camper vans. Next time you see one of those dreaded tin boxes reverse into it at full speed in your BX and photograph the outcome.
Best one wins a star prize, everyone else can relax safe in the knowledge they`ve taken another one of the road hogging horror boxes off the road :lol:

B*llocks, the secret is out. It`s the Royal interior of my newly built state BX limousine. The cupboard in the back is for storing captured BMW and Golf owners prior to being taken to the tower (Blackpool tower that is), then fed to the seagulls.
The sink is for the mobile page 3 wet T shirt competition and the towels to dry them with :lol:

The white van in Marty's original post is so obviously a successor to the GS Entreprise. Rob Moss' car is the only one of those that I know to exist in the UK, but the BX - with it's bigger footprint - would have been a massive improvement over one of those! What a shame it didn't sell.

I bet it did in other markets. I know that small businesses love car-based vans in France and even more so in Italy (anyone ever seen a Panda van?). Anyone know how they did abroad?

Yeah, deffo another one or 2 RHD G Service vans around.

The chap I bough my BXC van off has one, and a friend of mine's dad in Cornwall did have one, not sure if he still has though - that was rotten !!
