Seconded, thanks Tim! I'm in the St Tropez now and the seats are fine, the sunroof hasn't leaked which is miraculous (all St Tropez I have seen have) and the drivers seat is just a bit grubby.

I must report the naughty St Tropez did insist on overtaking lots of things on the way back from Market Harborough, I tried to stop it but I was powerless!

Mine and Charlottes fleet had some attention this weekend.

The grey 16TXi got a new home made octopus (viton rubber tube and some 3mm plastic elbow, t - pieces and elbows and straight connectors and hey presto, job jobbed, which was nice. Height corrector at the fron re-fitted and set the height up.
Next job will be a little more welding and some engine work.

Then the new 19 TXD estate had its clutch pedal fixed (welded) and a new clutch cable, so thats back on the road, im in it for work commuting today, slow as you like but nicely frugal.

We are now the proud owners of 4 BX's so this blog maybe should be similarly titles to ThreadBears blog, BX - Excess is indeed the order of the day :)

Just to keep the thread alive and show how boringly reliable that EVC, as shes become known is, nothing to report, nothings broken or fallen off or worn out in the while Charlottes been using her as the daily commuter, also had a couple of trips out, one to the national motorcycle museum in Birmingham. By way of celebration have a picture of her in the sunshine that was taken yesterday morning...

Evie and I have great fun together, proving to the motorists of Kettering that a 1400cc, 23 year old car can show them a thing or two :-)

I love her so much and I'm even growing to dislike power steering!

She posted it at 11:11 from my view, it is probably your own time format set wrong on your browser. What time can you see at the 'current time' at the top right of the page view? You need to go into your account settings and reset your time preferences.
