Hello everyone. My names pat. Just joined up this morning. I was steered into this forum by jamescarruthers. I recently recovered a 480 Volvo for him (we live a few miles from each other) while on the journey to pick up the Volvo we got chatting about various cars including the bx. I’d always fancied owning one.

I’m currently bidding on the mk1 estate that is on eBay at the moment with a hope of saving it to use as my daily driver. Hope to add more to this forum soon! 😎

Welcome and good luck with your bidding, I too own a MK1 estate which i hope may be an alternate daily driver before too long. It's all mot'd and structurally 100% ready to go but it is a little cosmetically challenged at the moment. I just can't make my mind up whether to spruce it up or run it as is.
