Well, I insisted on putting the smoked ones on the car in the first place when my Dad owned it... Now I'm torn between making it a totally standard P1 (Because they are so very rare now) or just keep it as it is now, and keep 'improving' it.

I've given up on finding a black Phase 2, there just aren't any left (That aren't already with loving owners that is) :cry:

Still drives beautifully Phil, if not better than ever. Aside from the cold weather-heavy steering syndrome (even this is only on start up), it is faultless. I guess a new HP pump is on the cards, but you can't argue with that.

I haven't been using it over the last few months, as I was nearing my annual mileage limit (plus I really don't want some moron crashing into me :wink: )... Not to mention the awful demister (Which I will be looking into when I get chance) But it still starts on the button, and every day I drive my Saab to work, I wish I was driving my BX :cry:

This car is the one that made me decide to buy a BX. The pic of it on Wikipedia - it looks so good... I couldn't resist. Ok, so mine's older, and an auto, and doesn't have the bodykit, but apart from that... :$

Glad to hear that my car is such an inspiration :lol:

Although, I'd say yours is probably newer than mine :wink: And it probably runs... unlike mine :cry:

Well...mine's a E plate and yours is a G, so unless I am confused somewhere, yours is 2 years newer than mine. Runs? Well I'll find that out soon when I go to collect it - leaving for UK on Monday, and should be back around Friday.

Oh... I thought it was a G-plate for some reason :oops:

Good luck picking it up.
