2. I have contacted Rob at Chevronics and asked him his view on the so-called reliable reports of the problem.

Until he tells me something - i will NOT update the details to say. I only say what I know. Afer all - eveyone else can look on this site and make their own mind up!

I recommend Chevronics in Letchworth to anyone reading this - i may as well do some advertiseing for him!!!
OK, so.........

point 1. Sorry, didnt see it mentioned anywhere what gender you were, my apologies

Point 2.Thats fine, who else has worked on or examined this car then that could be so sure of what the fault it?

Point3. Again fine, i just hope you have no comeback from any potential purchaser, im trying to save you hassle actually, do you realise how unreasonable some e-bay vehicle buyers can be if things arent exactly as they were described (i,e having a fault thats a bit more serious than thought) a friend of mine had himself and his family threatened by an irate e-bay buyer just because it had a threadbare seat edge he had forgotten to mention.

I wasnt tryin to be stroppy, just commenting on the facts we have been presented with, again, good luck with the sale.

I wanted to thank you all for your ideas and the nice things you said about my car.javascript:emoticon(':P')

I did not know what the site was about - that is why I came to look, not unhappy now. Have joined, as you can all see! At last.javascript:emoticon(':shock:')

Having bought our first BX from new (white!), all the following ones have been getting older, and older. However, my newest one is a year newer than the one being sold, with half the mileage on it! How many would be interested in that one???

When we bought it (2000) it was VERY expensive. Came from the Duxford Citroen garage. They wanted nearly £3500. When i asked for any discount, they said they knew we could get that amount, so it was that price or don't buy it.

Sad to see it now going for nearly nothing!! :cry: :cry:

I understand the potential anger from a buyer - but i am not hiding anything, so do not fear any dire consequences. If i omitted to mention something I knew.........
