Oo 'ello! Lovely pics Phil. They've got that Citroen brochure 'My life will be empty until I own that car' feel to them. :D

Although if they were proper brochure pics the tailgate would have been open and some 80s 'exec' type would be loading some expensive luggage while he chatted to his (equally expensive) leggy bit of fluff - with whom he was about to spend a dirty weelend - I love car brochures!

All you need now is a pristine GTI to park next to it - it'll give a sense of the 'car for every occasion' diversity of the BX range!

Very smart Phil. Nice setting too. Perhaps - adding to Paul's brochure theme - there should have been a picnic hamper open on the grass next to it?

Nah - there's a lorry load of consumer durables you can strip out of places like that before you have to start worrying about the window lead. You hadn't driven down there to case the joint had you Phil? Unbelievable load space in those BX breaks! :D
