One mans object of desire is another mans piece of junk. If someone wants that car badly enough and they can't find a similar one cheaper they'll hand over £1950. Ultimately something is worth what someone is prepared to pay for it.

That's philosophically speaking of course. In the real world most of us have a nose for the lie of the land and what the market will bear (even if my particular nose is routinely wrong!) I'd have said a grand to fifteen hundred was more realistic if it's as good as it looks - and it looks VERY nice. But you never know . . . I'm routinely wrong. :D

Good luck with the sale btw

Doesnt make sense does it, but there you are, anyway that GTi looks MINT and good luck with the sale, I think the price is a bit steep and maybe £1200-£1500 would be top of the tree.

Needs 'proper' wheels in my view, not that im overly bothered about authenticity but Ive always thought aftermarket wheels dont do on a BX.

Really nice car. Too rich for my blood im afraid, though im after a whiteun in good nick.
