I don't have the BX any longer (it was traded in for an XM at the end of the summer) but i still keep an eye out for things BX and spotted this ad on Gumtree. A bit out of my price range!

A bit out of everyones price range at 1495 - it better be good for that money (and not exactly legless either at 130k?)

And, as a pre-facelift 1989 car for that money I would expect the front to rear pipework and fuel lines to have been replaced in the last few years.

Even so...


Close on £1,500? Really? :?

Sounds like my old car sold for 450£ and picked up from Stansted airport
last weekend then driven across to northern ireland.

Car was Mot'd before sale and the buyer was pleased it made the 500 mile home no problems. The buyer is obviously quite an entrepreneur - good luck to him I say !!

I think he's just chancing his arm! A free ad on Gumtree with no pictures, and no effort made since to readvertise or push for a sale. I was hoping to have another BX to add to the Belfast population but the deal has fallen through at the last minute.

A guy in Dublin. All I know is that I was supposed to be going down for it on Monday morning but it was called off on Sunday afternoon.... after arrangements had been made :twisted:

It was all organized by Robert Smart, I was just the one with the cash and the hope of having a BX again!

More inviting, though, if it was called WANTA-CHIP. :wink:
