Thanks Tourist for posting the photos

Ive just returned from a short break in Brittany--had a fantastic time.
Weather was fantastic too, wine was nice and cheap!!!
I thought i might share these pics with my fellow BXers
A 900 mile round trip, 5 enboard and loaded to the limit--nearly 50 to the gallon, not bad hey?
I spotted 15 BXs over there, the French seemed very interested in my BX, i was quite chuffed to say the least. Thankyou for looking guys.

Glad to see the speedlines buffed up well.
Relying on two wheels and musclepower since the last BX (or any car) had to go.

DLM* Refurbed the speedlines, look like new again,( Nobodys spotted the difference yet!!!) Apart from Kitch :P

Phil* Carnac, great place, hope to go back later in the year again, might have colour coded bumpers by then.

This is my 6th BX, its here to stay, only covered 42k, running like a baby.
Trying to get my missus back into BXs, shes having nothing to do with them after her 17tzd turbo pissed lhm fluid on the way to a funeral a few years ago!! Then i got her a 17tzd turbo estate with over 200k on the clock, lovely FSH motor, until one day the passengers door fell off!!!!
She now drives a sensible VW Polo!!
I would have loved that low mileage valver from Jersey. is it back on our shores yet?
Keep em coming folks :)
