I kind of understand Tim, but in all fairness I have been open to offers for a while now, and the guy I met from the CCC wasn't able to move on it, so no takers. I can't afford to wait as, apart from anything else space, time, security (I have a two week holiday coming up) and insurance costs all count against me.

Anyway I have some serious BX-enthusiast interest so will keep you informed! :D 8)

SOLD to a BX fan. Picks it up tonight if all goes according to plan. I will of course encourage him to join the forum!

Then, for the time being I'll be BX-less for the first time in four and a half years :cry:

Well, the guy was true to his word. A happy chappy I think, as he drove off into the sunset :cry: :cry: :cry:

So I am BX-less. But a few quid better off... And with a holiday imminent, that's no bad thing.

He did say he'd register on the forum as soon as he got the chance.

I've always been a bit strange. As for stranger? :lol:

No worries, I enjoy this forum too much to give it up. :D

And I can't believe that TGS will be my last BX. :wink:

Ahem.

So: Phil's had a lot of pleasure out of that car, it doesn't seem to owe him any money, and a fan has taken it away. With a bit of luck the forum will gain a new member too.

I don't see any downsides - except for Phil having to put up with a ZX for a while ;) You want to sell it to my girlfriend, don't you? We'll give you £100 for it :lol:

I'm sure it won't be your last Philip. Glad to see the car's gone to an enthusiast and look forward to them joining up here.
