well my bx seems to be leaking LHM and last night it wouldnt raise up so i drove to 3 differnt petrol stations and none sold LHM but I could buy all my weekly shopping in all 3 of the them whats that all about??? a garage that sells pasta but not oil??
anyway I saw a really old citroen for sale about a month ago and when I went to have a look i noticed a load of cits on the drive so I popped round the blokes house who turned out to be a really nice bloke called chris who is MAD about cits and he checked it over for me to make sure that there wasnt a leak in the high pressure line the topped up the lhm for me ??? WHAT a great bloke his club are also looking for as many BX owners as possible for a BX meet next year and I have to give him 1st dabs if I want to sell it as its one of the best he has seen for a long time lol

You're right and that goes for round here too. What good's a coffee when you need a headlight bulb to prevent getting a "tug" from the old bill? :evil: LHM, bulbs etc has now become obligatory ballast in the BX. :roll:

Its worse than thta in Southampton - Tesco Direct is so popular they cause traffic jams at the entrances - seldom use them myself as they are so congested I might as well go to about 4 shops in the same time it takes me to deal with one of them.

Aye.
Not to mention FREEBORN CITROENWho, when you ring their parts department, tell you "We don't do them anymore because the labour charges are too high" "But I need parts" "We don't do them anymore." "But you are a Citroen dealer." "We don't do them anymore."
Name and shame time!
