Oh, it's not that far! I drove back from near there to Essex in a day lol.

But €300? That's low for a Frenchie BX.

That looks to be in fantastic condition - and it's a phase 1! I can't imagine why the price is so low, as Phil says, the Frenchies aren't usually so shy with their pricing :wink: I'd suspect a zero has been missed out.

On the plus side you'd have plenty of opportunity to get to know the car on the way home - and somewhere to sleep if it did break down :wink:

Steve, I like your way of thinking!

As I've said before, if my costs were covered I'd go and collect it.

Easyjet from Gatwick to Montpellier is about £60 if you fly on a Wednesday for instance. Fuel for the return journey would be approx £96. €300 is, in today's money about £257. European repatriation/recovery cover would probably be around £28. DVLA charge about £25 I think to register a car in the UK (but check first).

Insurance is scary! I only realised after coming back from one of my lengthy bums around France in a bx, that my insurance was only valid in the EU for a short period and only then if I'd notified them of my trip. :oops: I was lucky not to get pulled I guess.

It is possible to get insurance via someone like Footman James? Think about it: there are plenty of folks buying DS's etc. and bringing them here: there must be a way.

I can say it, but not spell it...

Google translate works reasonably well, I've even had someone complement me on my German when I was trying to buy parts for the van!

combien? - at least that's how I'd say it?

After the vendor says the price you should sharply inhale through clenched teeth...
