BX 1.9TXD estate for sale-cheap!

Post by cavmad » Sun Nov 05, 2006 11:07 pm

Right-oh, due to a change in circumstances here my BX 1.9TXD estate is for sale. MOT`d for about 5 or 6 months (I`ll find out exactly when and post up on this thread), tax expired but could tax at cost if wanted.
It`s been a fantastic car and we`ve been everywhere in it including some quite long journeys (inc. 700+mile holidays) and the engine is quite possibly the quietest and sweetest diesel you`re ever likely to find.
Aftermarket sunroof, working stereo, new caliper for last MOT and its starts on the button.
It`s got a problem currently which is believed to be the fuel pump: it`ll start and run but doesn`t like accelerating too well. It`ll get up to about 65-70mph eventually and I`m relatively confident it`ll make it back to wherever you live.
Not immaculate but will do someone a very good turn. Definately too good to scrap, spend a couple of hours fitting another fuel pump and you`ve got a very cheap and reliable/economical runabout.
It`s one of the last on an `L` registration, I`ve owned it a few months now and previously it was maintained by Ken I believe and as such it seems very well looked after mechanically. Probably due a cambelt change soon and a brand new one is supplied with the car (though not fitted).
Needs to go asap, price is based on slightly less than it`s current scrap/parts value plus the cambelt.
Inspection and test drive welcome, someone please save it I couldn`t bear to weigh it in but may have to.
Offers circa £90 please, it really is excellent value for money.

Is this the Cav Chav mobile with the alloys and scooby bonnet and morrettes?

Forgotten about the side repeaters Tim! Incidentally it`s been pointed out that it might not be the fuel pump and possibly something simpler to fix.
It`ll also now come with some very good tyres on steels, 3 excellent Michelins and one nearly new Dunlop.
It`s well worth the asking price and more, I just hope someone comes in for it before the inevitable one way journey to the metal yard.

Right-oh, just bought another car (non BX) so the estate has to go. It`ll pain me to do so but it`ll be getting squished next week if no interest. Offers or swaps welcome, don`t really want another car though but would consider pretty much anything if it means this car will be saved.

I checked out how much it would be for me to run this car and keep the 16v for fooling about in. Turns out this would be more expensive to insure than a 16v. How does that work? :? Sorry...

Is that because it is a 2nd car?
What if you insure it as your first and put the 16v on low mileage insurance?
Just a couple of thoughts. :? :wink:

It`s not worth insuring it fully comp, to be honest it might even be best to run it as TPO. If you have a policy where you pay an excess I doubt it`s even worth that as if you claimed it would end up costing you in the long run.
Put an alarm on it and run it third party only and it should be peanuts: it`s a non turbo version which will help and the running costs are so low you`ll hardly ever be in the petrol station!

Some of these claimed cheap insurance companies (ie Tesco) won't insure you unless you have an alarm installed professionally & certified! That really sucks when you consider the cost of this "accessory" :evil:

Ah yes, Tesco's Value insurance. What a rip off!

I was searching for insurance for the (now) ex-missus and they were the third most expensive! £750 more than the cheapest qoute.
Every little didn't help that day!!
