Free bx

Post by jacksun1987 »

My bx is at bullwinkles.
At the weekend it had major hydrolic failer.
Ive now got another car. To fix bullwikle said it would be 500 to 600 pound. The main pipe has burst. Its leaking really bad at the back.
Theres still mot and tax on it. But it needs to be towed

I DID TRY MY BEST I THE BX GAME.
I drove it up to london at the weekend. It was superb driving it was. But on the way back down it went on the motor way. The warning lights came on.
Bullwikle said its to do with the metal pipe at the back end.
I thought the pipes was rubber

Bad luck Paul, I have to agree I don't think BX ownership is for you.

Good luck.

I did try i had 2 of them. The really bad thing was the bx was nearly done. There was 2 holes in the bot filled one of them up. Then theres one more in the back of it on the right.

We did the paint work on it. Looked alot better. It drove superb really fast it was. Dispite the shaky engine at the start. It sounded like new when it was warm and going.

It was nearly there the only thing what diddnt work isthe rev counter. All the electrics work fine.
The suspension went up and down really fast.
The only thing on the sterring is the belt needed tighning on it. And that was it.
Compered to the black one i had it was so much better

Indeed, bad luck. Thanks for offering the car up here.

I'm glad you've got a petrol Laguna. The diesel ones of that age would definitely put you off French cars for life!

Turbo eating is less to do with the engine but the stupidly long service intervals which can cause this. I believe those in the know always change the oil more regularly than the service intervals suggest.

Can you get a clear description of the problems he says your BX now has so we can either help you get it fixed or give us an idea to how much work someone will need to do to get it mobile.

Everything can be fixed - you're not getting much help from the garage by them saying 'it's bad' - 'it's worse than that' etc..

I'd be inclined to agree with Adrian, not that i'm a cynic but telling someone who's a little naive that it's "knackered" isn't very helpful!

I would suggest that you want whatever is the value for collected scrap locally if you do leave it with them. If they don't offer you this, remember it's still your car.

He was probably given one but I don't think we're going to get one without speaking to Bullwinkles :wink: who by the way were desperately trying to get rid of scrap BX's a few weeks ago not collect them. I'm sure they would be very happy to repair this and get it out of their way rather than end up stuck with it.
