However,

click the link again, and it shows "seller relisted this item" then the next link shows "item removed" scratch...

Hmm, something a bit fishy there by the looks of it.

Whenever this car arrives on eBay, it always ends shrouded in mystery!

We sold the car to a trader in haywards heath, who we had bought a car from a short while before and he was interested in the bx. He put the car on ebay 2 maybe 3 times not sure why, eventually sold it I assume. Was back on eBay from another seller a short while after and now with this seller. Shame no one from the forum has got hold of it. We had some welding work done on it (boot floor) but other than that the engine was brilliant!

Makes you wonder why it's travelled round so many owners doesn't it? How long ago did you sell it Roody?

Must have only been a year or so ago. Maybe not even that long.

I note you asked him a questio about it Richard. To be fair there is no saying his response isn't true, especially since eBaY is famous for non-payers.

It's possible he mentioned the 'winning bidder' in his re-list and suggested he was a timewaster or idiot, or mentioned something else which is against eBaY rules.
What happens then is some officious little Hitler reports it and the listing gets removed.

I got a mail off him last night as I'd asked where he is. He lives near Manchester somewhere and is certainly polite/friendly enough by e-mail.

So is it just the colour, rear spoiler and air vents that are different than a standard TZD?
