Got one! Bx 17 TZD Estate

Post by jackytwoshoes »

After a while of looking and pondering various options, I finally got my hands on one!

Forum member Daisy kindly responded to my wanted add with info of a listing in her local paper, and what a cracker it is. It's a BX 17 TZD that's been very well looked after and although it has been to the moon and back and is suffering from some lacquer peel i reckon it'll make the perfect loveable workhorse. The vender was the perfect gent, it has to be said.

Et voila:


And he she is back home with the other members of my fleet:


The journey homeward went well and I've only got a couple of niggles- A clicky speedo will need to be looked at and I need to source some suitable wheel trims and front speaker grills. All in all, I'm very happy indeed.

Welcome to the mad house of BX ownership. (I mean BX club :) ).

That colour of green is a nice one, especially on a BX. Before I got mine I was thinking of getting a green one, but out of the two I looked at, the one I bought was a better car.
1992 Citroën BX 1.9 Diesel Meteor 4x4 - The Project.

1992 Citroën BX 1.9 TXD (with GTI engine; Mulleys old car) - Parts car.

2004 Citroën Xsara Desire. (Now gone).

2016 Ford Focus Zetec - Daily Driver. (Absolute bone shaker).
