Needs a clutch, could be a bargain if you can do it yourself....

Hhmm, I know this car, it's actually quite tidy, and I know Manni very well indeed.
Dont like estates myself, but I might just have a pop at that.
Wham a clutch in it, and fire it on, maybe it'll even turn a profit!
Actually, I've just had another thought......
hhmm......
Crows, flies, east. :wink:

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

Sheesh! Usually on FCF but you guys have now got me BX-Curious. :shock:

Running a Xantia XD estate right now, but even I'm considering a pop at this, flying to Bristol & driving back to Glasgow for the hell of it. :roll:

Somebody stop me please!

Get it bought lad!
Xantia's are rubbish.
Today I hate them even more than usual. Utter utter rubbish.

BX FTW.

Welcome, cpt_spalding, and here is your first lesson in the ways of the BX:

Doc Chevron is always right.

Buy it! Buy it! Buy it!

Cant believe that went for that much with a bust clutch, perhaps prices are on the up???

Meh, a clutch is a consumable item, and the rest of the car wasn't bad.
Bargain I reckon.
£60 for a clutch, years cheap motoring.

Thats if u can fit it yourself of course, otherwise it turns out to be an extra £250 on the sale price to get it back on the road, but a bargain non the less....

Well yeah, but ANY manual car will need a clutch eventually.
Pi$$ poor idea if you ask me.
Vauxhall had it right with the Cav's. 15 minutes to change a clutch, at the side of the road. In the dark.
Now that box was designed by an engineer.

Ironically, it also had an extremely good clutch in it, which if you drove appropriately never needed changing.

My father bought a Cav mk2 branders spankers in 1988. He drove it lots. Mum drove it a bit, and then I drove it lots too. Best part of 200k on it when the tinworm finally killed it, and it was still on the factory clutch. Mind you, it was also still on the factory head gasket, gear oil, CV joints, etc. The only thing that car ever needed other than service items was a starter motor. (and even that turned out to be worn out brushes)
this might be a signature
