Long term hibernation

Post by Ennrec »

Hi all,

Thought I would say hello, I was a member of the old BX 16v owners club about 15 years ago. I bought my 3rd 16v P2 in December 2017 and put it into the garage, meaning to use it the following summer. Life and work got in the way, and it didn't emerge until this summer when I put it in for an MOT. Sadly, after having been stored since 2007, the head gasket has deteriorated and failed. I can't do the work myself, so anticipate sending it to Chevronics in the spring. The car is an ex-Jersey car (originally supplied in Guernsey), sadly I have no history with the car but it certainly seems fairly straight. I'm very much looking forward to having it working and being able to use it. I'm in Kent - any other 16v owners in the South East?

Cheers,
Eddie.

Welcome, it looks to be a nice example from those pics.

In terms of SE users, I'm in East London and potentially doing the opposite - considering putting my 16v into longterm storage until I move elsewhere, as where I live currently is covered by the ULEZ.

Hi Eddie,

Lovely car! I'm in Sittingbourne. Any room in your garage for my GTi? :wink:
