Excellent - not that you need another BX, of course...

Picked this up on Friday - got it the 85 km home OK.
Seems to pull well, nice light clutch, doesn't smoke according to the boss who was following in the other BX.
Its had recent spheres at the front, and a new turbo about 4,000 miles ago. Its got a UK / miles dash in it, apparently a problem with the old one and the UK one was the only one with the right connections to be found in the local scrapper! Rev counter does not work though.
Body seems solid and reasonably rust free, although there are a few parking dings.
Rear parcel shelf has had big speakers in it at some time, radio wiring is a bit of a mess, there's a replacement shelf but its the wrong colour.
Rear headrests in some sort of dark blue - they'll probably be got rid of at some time - more of a nuisance than they're worth in my opinion.
We'll see what Tuesday's CT brings up.
