Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

I think you had a bad one kitch, Aaron gets on well with his, my dad had one and Ive read motoring reviews of them of the time and they all fared favourably.

Yes they are more thirsty compared to a do it yourself box but there smooth and very longlived as autos go.

I imagine the 1.9 has a little bit more oomph to compensate. The 1.6 couldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding.

This does need saving by the sound of it though. If it had pictures and was red, I'd be in trouble!

This one was advertised through the Yahoo group I think.

Asking price was £1000. :o

Hmm £1000 for a BX petrol unless its a 16v is a bit much, but find another one, I want at sometime in the Future a very low miles original example.

Dear god! £1000, the ad didn't have a price, that explains why!!! :shock:

Surley the vendor has forgotten a decimal point somewhere.

Dont think he'll sell it then!! :D :D
