For Sale: BX DTR Reg G466 JYD.

Good condition, has had a lot of work done by previous owner who was a Citroen mechanic. 176000 miles. Now surplus to requirements. It is off the road with no MOT but is far too good to scrap.

Give me a ring on 01225 754547
or email me andrew.nortonhouse@talktalk.net

and offer me £150!

The car's too far away for me - plus it has a sunroof and i'd rather have more headroom. I'm wondering if it is somthing simple like rad cap, weeping hose or even heater matrix - the 'new' head did 20K okay. PM the owner for more info and he has a couple of photos too. Steve
