1989 CITROEN BX 14RE RED - Spotted on EBAY - (For Sale)

Post by RxBX »

SPOTTED on EBAY !
As it's not my BX, or property that's why I've posted it under spotted !
(Justin/Jayboy are you checking the spotted posting's now ?)

This nice looking 1989 CITROEN BX 14RE RED with only 44k miles :!:
Hopefully should be a good purchase if it doesn't exceed £600 and no mechanical issues worth a trip to view first possibly,
as plenty of time before auction end date !

Note, seller has not got a 100% feedback ! one negative reads as follows :- "car junk,and dangerous, watch this one ,not as described"

Also the description under Exterior, states 'Rear Spoiler' I was looking for maybe a Baby-walker type or a Rubber lip type spoiler !
But it's just the standard Matt Black bit that's just part of the normal Fibreglass moulding :roll: never mind at least it's not messed with until you go to the front bumper/fog lamp's (Why fit Fog lamps without wiring them up) ?
Also the bonnet's not quite the same shade of Red as the rest of the car (But as it is Red overall it's pretty good) ! .
Is this the one for Chris ? AKA 'Rangebyte' unless he's got fixed up ?

why is it that SO many desirable BXs are coming available at the same time?
If I had a large barn, and a sympathetic Bank Manager / wife, this would definitely be on my shopping list!

Looks fooking bonny, does this one....and nice low mileage too!

Hmmm - I'm suspicious of the fact that the engine bay is spotless. I like a bit of good, honest grime.

No takers as yet, that cars had a professional valet, hence why its so shiny, I would want to see it in the flesh before I bid for it as I suspect the paints not as mint as it looks.
Lots of Motors, mostly semi broken....

Yes there was Philip at least six photo's :!: and the shot of the engine bay's deleted :shock: I wonder why ?

Is it a Forum member's vehicle or Guest looking in on the comments being generated here and because there's less than a day before the listing ends and no bid as yet maybe ?

I've just clicked onto the revised button on the listing and the following history of revisions have been listed as follows:

IIRC it had 'Reserve Not Met' in blue in the listing even though it started at £500, and (If it did have a reserve) now's that's gone with the Photo showing the really shiny steam cleaned look with lacquer sprayed every where to 'Give that new look ' in the engine bay !
