An old topic I know, but I know the wherabouts of GRX. Last spring, a friend and I went to buy a silver BX bonnet after a member on here said they had a scrapper with bonnet that I could have. When we arrived, the car (GRX) looked way too good to break so my friend bought it (he has a DS and 2CV but wanted a loadlugger). He paid £75 for it and we fetched it a little while later. It blew a rear strut on the way home to Suffolk but we had it recovered to a local specialist. It has now had an awful lot of work done and is used daily by my friend. He has taken it to the Scottish highlands, France, Germany and Belguim in the last few months. It's a great car now and is well loved. I think the guy we got it from was a friend of Terry and he had a husky dog which had been living in the car for a while. My friend (who is a really clean freak, spent hours cleaning the interior!).

Thanks for the update. I would have kept the car but we bought another car and something had to go. And it wasn't going to be our GTi (until later #-o :roll: )
