Yes, I imagine you've had a gut-full of all that Des.

That door-shut will need some serious work to put straight though, but the possibility of a low-mileage, really straight BX for not too much money still makes it an attractive proposition I think.
What's hiding inside the rear wings I expect, is corrosion that's quite extensive and will be quite expensive to sort out - substantially more than the purchase price of the car probably, but there are so few really nice BXs around now that if you want one - that's the deal.
