Jon, in the second pic I notice there is a cupholder under the bonnet, is this unique to the 16 valve? None of my BX's have had this feature, it may explain why the 16 valve is so sought after 8) :lol: :wink:

Ah the joys of teeth - I wonder why they were invented with nerves as they cause nothing but pain.
I remember my dentist getting a screwdriver affair on my wisdom toth when she pulled one of them out, for extra leverige!
Hope the mouth calms down soon Jon, plenty of alcohol to numb the pain (and thin the blood, so it starts bleeding again!!!)

Ah yes, if only I had thought of it at the time Jon, I could have 'persuaded' that tiresome tooth with the aid of your favourite prybar 8).

As previously mentioned I would like to chaperone you on your visit to the Doc's cowpat emporium, you know where my hovel is :wink:

The darkest lights before the dawn mate.
If I totted up how much I'd spent and how much time I've out into mine over the years I'd probably kill myself.

I always find when things get depressing it's best to walk away and have a break, then come back to it when you're less pi$$ed off with it.

I've got a breaker BX on blocks at the mo up the farm, so anything you need thats still on it.....
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...
