Yeah!
That looked like a real good motor, youll have to know how it drove back, and did you find any problems?

Hi Everybody,
Well, it drove home like a dream with my partner following me in our mark one Xantia 1.9td I was going up hills without having to change down whilst my partner behind was having one hell of a time keeping up with me.
The Bx feels really tight and precise, just one problem I found on the way home the ABS light came on, I will have to find out where the fault is with that, and the second fault is the glove box retaining clip has lost its screw so I will be looking for another one of those.
I have this evening taken off the sun roof add on wind deflector and given it a damned good clean as well as using colour restorer on the bonnet to bring the paint lustre back to life, I had to stop due to a massive thunder storm and down pour but managed to carry on as soon as i was able to do so.
