What's all that funny business going on at the back-end? Not so sure I like that even at the bargain price.

That's the normal Sport styling. In my opinion they did away with one of the best BX features when they did that 'cut' over the rear wheels. I like the wheels partially covered by the wing.

Frankly with a price tag like that, the fact the seller couldn't even be arsed to clean it says a lot. Lazy, piss-taking chancer springs to mind.

They are properly rare now though - I did once see one parked in a Parisian side street that looked like it hadn't moved in years :? still looked good though.

I wouldn't pay €8k for it unless it had the World's most complete history file etc, but I can see it fetching €4k....

Glad it's not just me that browses ebay.fr looking for that rare and elusive find. Saying that the prices of bx's in france are quite salty. Or is it that the french understand the true market value of these cars :!:

I found they had roughly the same reaction to mine as people do over here - they humoured me, mainly!

I believe that (in general) second hand cars are more expensive in France. I'd like to find a dirt cheap BX or really tidy Nova there and drive it back for a laugh.
