Diesel auto

Post by ken newbold »

I have for sale a white BX 19TZD diesel auto.

It's only done about 63k miles and is in quite good condition for an H reg car. It's on disabled tax so would need to be taxed and it's only got about a months MOT left, although I'm sure I could get a new MOT on it as it's only done about 600 miles (guess) since the last one.

Now before you get carried away, it has had some paintwork repaired due to it's previous owner damaging the rear nearside passenger door, lower half. It also had rust issues round the windscreen, again due to it's previous owner fitting the screen with silicone bathroom sealant. I had a new screen fitted.
All in all, it's not a bad car and anyone who is prepared to do a bit and spend a bit on it could make a really nice car out of it.

Now the bad news. The car is registered in my Mum's name mainly because of her disabled tax allowance, and she says she won't let it go for less than £650. I don't think I would pay so much for it, in fact I know I wouldn't!
But if you fancy it, it's here :? other than that, it'll be going in the garage for the winter.

Just to add, the car is in really good mechanical condition, I fitted new arm bearings, all the pipes are good, the engine and gearbox are faultless and the bodywork underneath is excellent, no signs of rust, not even at under the boot.

Let me know if you're interested and I'll put you in touch with the owner :roll:
They think it's all over, it is now!

With that sort of mileage, i reckon the price is fair tbh, so perhaps your mum has been keeping an eye out for BX price increases over this last year :wink:

Shame your BX ownership is coming to an end, dare i ask what car you have now got or will be owning in the future :?:

..that_ seconded. If my auto with similar mileage is anything to go by this will be a cracking car for someone and for any interested parties I can't exagerate the pleasure I get out of driving mine, it puts a smile on my face evey day travelling to work in this unpretentious motor. Very rare TZD Diesel Auto with this miles, I doubt you'll find another! ( for sale that is :wink: )

Ken , I certainly think it would be worth that with a new MOT,
tell "mum" it needs one and hopefully she will pay for it :D
