'tis a rare one indeed that needs a clutch at 34,000 miles.

This car is not for those of us who know better. It is a clocked wreck being punted on by some dodgy dealer, so if you have just looked in on this site to find out whether this is the car for you, it isn't; avoid.

So good he couldn`t be arsed to take it outside and get pictures all round of it. Brand new mingebag wheel trims (sure sign of a dealer in my book) and why put a new clutch in a car with such low mileage then not MOT it? Surely whoever owned it would have put through MOT first before spending on a new clutch? What would be the point of doing clutch first unless they thought it would pass then find out it was going to cost a king`s ransome to get through?
I`m not going to slag the seller off because I don`t know him or the story of the car but personally I wouldn`t touch it.
Unfortunately I think that will end up in the same place my newly acquired TDG T/D very nearly did today: squished into a foot square box and stuck on a boat to China to become part of another Mini Moto which will be buzzing around your streets at 2.00 in the morning :roll:

And looking at the accelerator pedal it's done a lot more than 34K. This sort of listing hacks me off, even if it is a genuine error - mind you you'd have to be pretty dumb to believe the speedo...

Mind you, it's hardly the crime of the Century is it? I should chill - (busy day!) :D

I don't know what came over me, I think it's 'cos I was wound up over work, spending 30 hours since Friday sorting out somebody elses mistakes... If you knew me, you'd know I am chiiler than a shaved penguin.... :D

I've got it all sorted and I'm back to normal ( :roll: ).

I guess, the BX will sell or it won't.
