We've got two BX Diesels for sale,

1) 1991 H reg 1.7 TGD Turbo Metallic Green. Serviced by Citroen specialist garage for the four years we have owned it. In total spent just under £3000 to drag this car out of the jaws of death, and get it running at its best. Cosmetically it has suffered due to the amount we have spent on the moving bits but there's no rust or LHM leaks just the typical Citroen stuff like flaky Lacquer on the paintwork, frayed drivers seat, etc. This has been a reliable car, used daily and has travelled to Cornwall and Scotland with no problems. Well cared for if not a little spoiled, a sound investment for an enthusiast 133,000 miles full years MOT and 7 months tax.

2) D reg 1.9 RD Diesel. This one was a beauty but was unfortunately written off in Feb. 01 (stupid van driver ran in to it side on at a junction and did in the passenger side) it’s been stored in a dry garage since and had some bits removed for the H reg but there’s still loads of useful stuff on it will need transporting though because it’s not got any brakes or height adjuster on the back.

£450 ono for the pair

Pictures to come…

Thanks for your welcome, wish I'd found this site before it came time to let go of my BX. I'm in South Cheshire. Near Crewe.

Not far from me then KJS-I live on the west side-west side of Cheshire that is. Dean`s right, don`t sell your BX`s, you`ll regret it mate. You can trust me because I`m one of the sensible ones on here 8)

Careful my wife's got access to this log-on too - that kind of talk could get me shot.

Trouble is BXs are a bit like wire coat hangers.

If you let one get into your wardrobe, next time you look there's 3 or 4 of the damn things in there. :lol:
