BX mk1 GT "DIGIT" parked outside. It still drives fairly well, but has no rent or ticket. It's a nice enough car, but I have plans to fit a MK2 front subframe for strength, and then a 1.9TD engine, which will make it a very nice car.
this might be a signature

If anyone has pictures of their Mk1s for the forum (especially the interior) I would like to see them! If i had storage I would buy one, but I dont, and as there getting old now they need to be cherished so they dont all disappear forever.

The fingertip controls and rotating speedo are fabulous!

If anyone does here of a bright red (venetian??) TRS auto for sale let me know. I would be persuaded I think, was on the front page of the 1984 Brochure which I still have 20 years on!

There was a red petrol one in Exeter which I used to see regularly, don't know if it's still around as I moved away recently.
I learnt to drive in a C reg 19rd estate, a girlfriend a while later loved it, described it as a spaceship and I had to let her drive it regularly!
I would love another one, those switches.... :shock:

Theres a Mk1 D-reg think its a TRS, just down the road from me, don't walk passed it that often and have never spotted the owner. Will double my efforts!

My mate sold one on ebay a while back - a silver C reg 14 Leader - to edridgecars. Dunno if he's still got it or if he broke it...

The indicator switch was sheared off by the previous owner... with an umbrella spike :shock:

Most of the dash lights didn't work and the stoplamps didn't come on under light braking... Otherwise it was quite a nice car!

One day when I have my 4 garage house I will get a Mk1! But I may be 60 by then and there would be none left! :cry:

Had one round my place on Saturday, my mate Chris (new recruit) picked it up in Kent last week. C reg, dark metalic grey 1.6, think it's a TRS, one owner since new. Hopefully Chris aka 'gazpacho andulus' will login soon and tell you more, I know he's very proud of his 'new' BX :wink:

Hi I'm Chris
I've just got a 1985 16RS silver grey. Same old fella had it from new and sadly he died Nov 2005.
His aged sister is a friend of my brother who knew I was in need and the rest is history.
It has 85000 on the clock and no mods and hasn't been mucked about with. a'n't I a lucky boy! M.O T' till Oct and tax 'till april.

Slight slip on the clutch is O.K if driven with gentle right foot.
now I'm listening. TZD Estate 1991
