BX 16v For Sale

Post by Tim2cv » Thu Jan 04, 2007 12:01 pm

You may have noticed I have been quiet lately and this is due to working on my new extremely rare car. Hence why I have had to decide to sell the 16v. I bought this:

This has got me thinking. If I can find a taker for my GTi auto, I might put my quest for a good diesel auto hatchback on hold 8) ... I'll post a thread (after asking the wife, whose car she claims it is the GTi) and get back to you... PM sent.

Mmm... initial tentative enquiry with wifey went down like a cold cup of bio-diesel. Must work harder. :evil:

PLEASE Don't let my efforts prevent anyone else making a bid to buy. It seems a bargain... best of luck to all. So long as it finds a good home!

Nice Mehari - can't be many around. Are the crinkles the same profile as H van ones?

Now, who dragged that Mehari to your house? Does that mean it's my fault that you are now getting rid of ANOTHER 16v?! Ditch the ZX diesel instead. You know you need that 16v kick!

I think I'll have to pass. I need a daily drive that can be kept outside on the road and deal with the ravages of the wind and rain, and the ever-present threat of pissed-up students and vandals. To subject this lovely example to that wouldn't be right, especially bearing in mind how well-loved it's been. I know I'd hate it if someone took my pride and joy and turned it into their biffabout, so I couldn't live with myself if I did it to someone else's!
