Good luck with your bx shopping, you may be lucky and find a little gem like i did with the gti recently, they do come up every now and again, i would prob expect to pay more than your budget for a nice tidy td with mot.

"i would prob expect to pay more than your budget for a nice tidy td with mot."

Yeah that's what I figured, hence that it doesn't need to win any prizes line, but it's a double edged sword, do I spend a bit more and still there is a good chance it will be reliable as any other, or go with the fact if it's got a long(legit) MOT at least its sound safety wise, any way that's kind of why I'm keeping all my options open, and also if I get get insurance quote down, my purchase budget may be stretched a bit ;)

Sadly the MOT tester advised me before he tested it car will fail the MOT due to a cracked windscreen, for this reason the car will be broken as i dont have the time or inclination to replace it with a pending house move going on at present , it is a shame to do this as its a really tidy car , the whole car will be broken, excellent 100k eng/box with new clutch and new cyl head, good f/r struts, hyd pump, new starter motor, bosch pump, wheels with 4 good tyres etc etc even the shell is pretty good with only the inner wings being welded for the last test, a/b/c pillars all solid, boot floor solid, elec sunroof in excellent cond no rust, steel bonnet, if you require anything at all from this car please pm me. i can arrange shipping for anything you require including the bulky items

Eh? You're breaking it because it needs a windscreen?! Are you willing to sell complete? (not to me, I'm utterly skint!)

Yes that is the case, Looks as tho its been chipped whilst in storage at a friends yard, i am not willing to spend the £'s for a new screen as the car is uninsured, i'm going to be moving house soon and no longer have the space to keep it (and transport costs to move it will outweigh its value) as it stands it has little value so breaking is the best option for me. I will consider selling it complete but im not giving it away as its a very tidy car.

Tidy enough to break up ? Would it not be better to put up for sale as it is at a reasonable price that reflects its condition ( even without its mot ) and hopefully it could be saved by someone.
Have you any pictures ?as the ones at the start of this thread cannot be viewed.

Breaking a car is a great deal of work takes up a lot of space, and you have to pack up and post most parts = even more work.

Unless you want to keep many parts yourself, it is very hard to justify the effort.

Old BX parts are not worth much money either.

It is far easier to sell the car whole if you can.

There's a brand new windscreen for £50 on ebay!!!!!!! Check out the post in the parts section. Surely it can't cost that much to have fitted.

Perhaps another way of looking at this situation is: How much would you be able to sell it for if it did have an MOT? If the windscreen is the only MOT failure point, advertise it for free on C&C & i'm sure you'd get way more than scrap value.

True, you could put it through then have a fail sheet saying windscreen as the only fail (hopefully).

A windscreen is only £120 or so to buy and have fitted outright. Why the hell would break a car because it had a cracked screen?!

Although it does help to have the matching colour screen! :lol:

Now if a BX had all 3? colours, in its myriad of windows, clear, green and bronze and any others that may exist maybe it could be called a Rainbow edition?. Oh and btw the pros got the wrong screen on the C4 and it only lasted 2 days! before cracking. It cracked originally due to the official Citroen garage/dealer buggering it whilst replacing the wiper motor. I think we have managed 4 screens in a year on it so far, at least it has the correct one now.

You could try Addisons? in Guildford, Walnut Tree Close, if they still do auto glass. They are about one third the cost of Autoglass, last time I enquired, about 140 for BX screen inc VAT and fitting.
