Actually the MOT was free, as I recruited a new technician for them from someone I know so as a thank you they gave me it gratis!

No pictures of the new wheels Tim? I must say I was rather looking forward to them...

Thinking for the future, and this is just a though, I cant imagine keeping 4 BXs forever as there are other cars I would like to own I will look to Downsize the fleet, but any sales would be to someone with a garage, a confirmed polisher and who will be preparred to love them like I have.

The TZi isnt for sale though...

Drat. That rules me out then! Though I did polish the Bluebird last month. It's incredible. The bonnet is still so shiny that I can see where I'm going by looking at it! Some way to go before the TXD is capable of that trick though...

Thats probably the one I would part with first Mick.... Which is strange as its in the best condition, strangely i cant get as attached to it as i am the TZi.

Maybe i should just stick a 2.0CT in it!

Gosh, that does look very very nice! The wheel colour matches the bumper tops, c pillar windows and the spoiler, making it look much more 'sporting'. Perhaps in the future, WTF would quite like to accompany a similar coloured GT? :)
