I've tried very hard but i cant for the life of me find the official production figures for the air suspension version of the BX although i've had many heated debates with owners of the aforementioned air suspensioned BX's :roll:

Artic, possibly unlikely but the less than honest seller of the 1.9TD I bought promised some spares including some `mint condition white doors` but they didn`t materialise. If I can reach him and he still has them I`ll let you know. I think the car came from the Midlands somewhere (Malvern rings a bell-I didn`t collect it myself) and one of our members lived fairly close?
Long shot but I`ll certainly ask for you.

all in all it was a good running till the roof started leaking.

The highest bidder would need a trailer to take it away as the suspension is fully down
Obviously he knows little about our wonderful cars.
The roof is probably leaking cos the sunroof drain tubes are blocked.Of course the suspension is down,it has been stood for a while ](*,)

I`m going to give him 48 hours to respond to my question as to where the spares are he promised with it then the gloves are coming off. That`s not a threat of physical violence btw moderators, this will be a case of the pen being mightier than the sword. Only much mightier. In fact mightier than a mighty thing on national mighty day.
