Your local factor will still list them, as will the usual suspects such as ebay... Last one i bought cost a tenner via the latter.
I have zero patience for your tedium.

Prompted by the OP's question I've had a look in my shed and I have these:

A Quinton Hazell cable QCC 1155, I think that might be Transit.

Lecoy cable marked 30187 10 90 which I'm fairly sure is Citroen

FKA 1087 Throttle cable kit Citroen Peugeot.

SBLG 1192 which could be a Ford cable, Transit clutch maybe

A new cable with no markings that might be an for early BX clutch

They're all new old stock, if anyone can identify them and would like to give me a fiver each plus p&p that'll suit me and another cleared corner in my shed

There's also a used cable possibly BX marked B.C.L 35 92 free to anyone prepared to collect or pay £4.00 postage. Gibbo.

Got a handbrake cable in the last few months but it was not a genuine parts one, simple reason the price. This aftermarket version I think either New Zealand or more likely Australian cost me nz$120 what ever that works out in sterling these days.

Not cheap, never is when I want a part. :(

Sunroof on an estate? NEVER recomended by Citroen. Thats the main downfall on the car IMO.

WHOOPS!!!
Wrong thread,....... intended for TGD estate for sale in Croydon Sorry

Back to the cable situation. Ive found a Lecoy OEM from AEP direct for £14. ive also seen NOS on Ebay for a fiver or so, i should imagine at that price the quality wont be too good.
