1990 BX GTi 8v For Sale

Post by rutter123 » Thu May 12, 2016 8:23 pm

After much deliberation and consideration I have decided to part with my much beloved GTi 8v, some of you may have seen the car at Burleigh House this year and last year where it took 3rd place on both occasions, for reasons beyond my control sadly I have to sell it.
It is a 1990 GTi 8v with 4 previous owners, in ven red with all its original paintwork which in very nice condition and has been well cared for by myself and previous owners, interior is immaculate with no stains, tears, fag burns and the seats are barely worn, within the last 2 yrs it has had many new parts inc front discs and pads, timing belt and water pump, new spheres throughout, plugs diz cap rotor arm leads and plugs, ignition coil and pick up, radiator, oil and filter change, lhm change, rear arms have been rebuilt using quality parts, everything electrical works inc all 4 windows, sunroof and mirrors, it has ABS which gives no problems and works fully, mileage is a shade over 117k and has 11 months MOT with no advisories, I have owned the car for 5 yrs and done a lot of work on it myself inc a new clutch at 114k, it has no leaks and the hydraulics are all good, its goes like a rocket once above that magical 4000rpm and stops just as well, original working front foglamps and factory fitted radio/cassette even the rear speakers still work, it is fitted with standard O/E 5.5J steel wheels wearing a very nice set of the correct GTi wheeltrims, with a little effort it could be made better but nonetheless is still a very good looking BX. It has the Jetronic ignition and the injectors have been ASNU cleaned and tested with compressions coming up @ 175psi per pot. The engine is totally standard apart from a RamAir filter which makes a lovely noise when the taps are opened, it currently has no Supplementary Air Device fitted as the original one is faulty but it still starts fine and will idle smoothly after a minute or so warm up, there has been a bit of welding in the usual places but this has been done to a high standard and is still nice and solid on the underside, door hinges, inner wings etc, viewing is recommended. Sadly there is no history with the car only what I have done in the last few years and the plip/remote is also missing tho all the central locking works properly on the 1 key which fits all locks. Very reluctant sale but unfortunately it has to go, I will try to add some pics asap.
The asking price is £1395 which I think reflects its condition and the work that's been put in, it has always been garaged by myself and the previous owner hence the paintwork still holding its shine.
I am in Holbeach near Spalding and can be contacted on 07709447369.

Seems that I don't have the capacity to add pics (completely p/c illiterate) so if anyone wants some I can email them.

Way 2 go, that is the one, thanx, do you think it's overpriced or about right ? There are several bx's on c&c at present all quite reasonably priced and some selling for strong money, prices seem to be on the up.

A shade on the cheap side if anything ;) But good luck with the sale. At last, values are becoming more realistic.

Yes Tim, quite a shocker, the guy is called Brian Kenny and he has brought it without seeing it, he says he is a Cit/Pug specialist and has his own workshops . Have you heard the name before? He is driving it back from here to Galway. He had a gti8v years ago and has the urge for another one by sound of things. I dont think he will be disappointed.

After delivering the car to Stansted Airport yesterday to meet the buyer, i have just received a message from the guy to say the car has just completed a 600 mile trip to Galway, West Ireland and it didnt miss a beat all the way and that he is "absolutely delighted with it and brought back many memories" Another happy bx'er.
