Welcome aboard, i'm sure you will have fun getting your car back on the road & hopefully the technical experts on here can give you plenty of advice etc... Always worth doing a forum search first, as i'm sure that most common issues on BX's have been covered many times, but if you can't find them, we won't hold it against you :wink: :lol:

I know Waterlooville like the back of my hand (used to be a multi-drop driver there). My boss also lives off Tempest Ave.

Give us a shout when you get it, I'm just about to put mine back on the road. Or if you're ever in Fareham, pop in to our unit. http://www.southwaysautomotive.co.uk

Free RR dessions available for any BX 16v :lol:

Where's your little meet then?
