If the UK doesn't throw up anything, there are lots of BXs for sale in France, and at a range of prices.
Leboncoin (voitures) is a good place to browse, and where I found mine.

Slight issue with the ones in France, though... :lol:

There's a rather nice looking Phase 1 16v on Car and Classic, it's in Ireland though and a strong price tag.

I've seen the one in Ireland. Its nice but strong money and would be a pain to get hold of/bring home/re-register. Uk mainland would be ideal!

You are in for a wait then, as the number of good 16v's that show up are rare. The odd resto project does come up but can be more expensive to restore than a good used one.

I dont mind waiting. I don't expect one to appear magically, I know they're a rare car these days.
