Even if it was showroom/as it left the factory (ie proper trims/alloys, no amateur red stripes...) no way is it marketable at that price. Or is it??? I don't think so, personally, but some might argue it's worth it... When you consider what £1650 buys you these days...

In a way I hope it sells for that :lol:

If it does,which i doubt,it may mean the word gets out and people realize it may just be worth trying to sell their Bx rather than just weigh it in?
Mind you £1650 does buy alot of pretty modern car these days,if your in to that kind of thing.

£1650 would buy a C5 or a lovely Xantia HDi, just depends on what you prefer I guess.

The off side rear radius arm bearing looks a bit suspect (Unless it's the angle of the photo shot) but IMHO if they've not been changed at 69K miles the bearing's will be suspect and on the 'To do list' in not the too distance future :wink:

Bumper inserts don't look original either.

What's the dark patch on the intercooler? Could it be oil? It seems to line up with the crankshaft pulley...

If the history is perfect and there's no rust and assuming it won't be long until the radius bearings need doing I'd say it's not far off the money. Whether I'd choose to pay that sort of dosh for a bx is another matter when you think about old Landrovers and Rangerovers and Alfa GTv's and Fiat Coupes... I know the bx will be more reliable, and cheaper to run, but, but...

Camshaft pulley ( [-X ) to be pedantic but it's fairly common for it to leak. Not difficult or expensive to change but a useful bargaining point.
