You're right Tim, it's gone very quiet.

The 19 TRS was my fathers main/only car from new and since inheriting it in 2006 has been little used.
In fact in recent years I only seem to drive it to the MOT station and back!
It has to live on the road so has been taxed and tested until June of this year, since then it has stood on a friends drive, and if we are to remain friends "it's got to go".............

It's a very stylish, beautiful car, and I'm sure I'll miss it, but I just don't use it.
So if anyone's interested please get in touch.

We dont actually know what the money is, with respect and being in the trade for most of my life I find "open to offers" is pointless as most people will either assume its too expensive or not get in touch for fear of being way off base.


Dominic sold a similar car with a manual box for £700? with a fresh MOT, and lots of work done inc new pipes and a headgasket.

Petrol autos are unpopular, which is a shame as they are a lovely drive (I love them) but will do about 15-20mpg less than a diesel manual, if your not doing many miles (like me) it doesnt matter.

I would try http://www.carandclassic.co.uk" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;.

It would sell ALOT easier and for considerably more money with a MOT, or at least a fail sheet.

Still about 5 more than I'm expecting out of the 4x4 then :shock: :lol: !

I think the issue also is that there seems to be a lot of tidy or rare (or if you're really lucky, both!) cars surfacing just now, and those of us that take on some of the less popular models (whether due to spec or condition) are now full! The few people who have come on here looking for cars recently seem to either want valvers or TZD's.

No MOT = scrap value or not a lot more.

The reason that I haven't stated an asking price is that I simply just don't know what its worth, if any thing!

The MOT or fail slip makes sense, but work wise, from next weekend, I'm away for the next 3 or 4 weeks so it's all a bit of a hassle.

I'll see what I can do.....

Ok Keith

As long as it doesnt have to be gone straight away I think it would be worthwhile getting it put through a MOT, you never know you could fall lucky. Which would make the car alot more valuable.

I would agree with this but Keith hasn't even had scrap value offered, from the pictures, mileage and provenance of this car a petrol BX enthusiast could really be missing out on a bargain here? Looks like a beauty to me!

Early estates don't come around that often - it's a pity that most people here prefer the hatchbacks! Being a petrol auto it's also the least likely of the range to have been worked to death!

Thanks for the posts, they are very helpful.
I don't want to scrap it, I'll take it for an MOT, it passed the last 2 first time!
You never know.....

I just wish one of you lived a little nearer,
it would be good to get an enthusiasts opinion.

It does sound like a very nice car, but a 1.9 carb petrol auto isn't particularly economical so that puts off most BX enthusiasts on this forum. It will always sell with an mot, but price wise, no sure, i would have thought it should be worth with an mot an absolute minimum of £500, but could go for more??

Mathew, thanks.

That's encouraging, not that I'm after "making a buck", but I do want to see it survive.

Have looked at the old MOT's and since the last one, June12, its done 71 miles,
and since July 09, 994!
I walk more than that!!!
That's why it's got to go , I just don't use it enough.

I'll take it for a test and see what happens.....

Thanks every one.

Regards Keith

Alternatively, just keep it & get classic car insurance & drive it some more & come to some of the citroen classic car shows or the various classic car shows that abound around the country & probably in your neck of the woods :) Once its sold, you'll probably not see it again which may be a shame?
