Ebayer "any inspection welcome and tea and biccies on offer."

If a bed for overnighting and breakfast was thrown in I'd go and have a look.
It looks pretty!
I love that blue, my mates got a TXD Turbo in that shade and he hates it, wants to spray the car grey :shock:

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 notice it must be a 'cross-over' between the pre- and post- 1990 model. It has the earlier fuel injection system and, no doubt non-coated pipework, but has the later 'chinned' front bumper. The wheel trims are pre-1990 too.

Looks nice in that colour though, doesn't it.

Same colour as the F plate I had - was a nice colour in metallic.
The car drove well on the Jetronic injection but I think that the "current" Motronic injection is better. :D

I`m pretty sure that`s showed up on eBay fairly recently. Nice looking car and everyone knows blue is the best colour!

I think they did offere certain cars in certain colours, You couldnt get a hearing aid beige 16v! unlike some cars. And i know they didnt do them in some of the other mainstream colours.

Looks nice and I love the wheeltrims. Have those on my TRI wagon. My local Citroen parts importer has a brand new genuine set of those in stock!! Bloody fortune though. I think about AU$200 per trim. No wonder they're still in stock!!!
