BX wanted (with working ABS) please

Post by IOWBX »

Hi all. its been a while since I posted here… anyhow I want another BX. My last one was the red one which appeared on top gear. I gave it to a friend when I left the Isle of Wight but sadly he couldn’t keep it… you know the rest.

Anyway, I would like another, low mileage, no rust etc… I am sure I have enough £££ to encourage parting with it if you have one and rest assured it will be kept warm and cosy and treated very nicely… any nice BX’s out there wanting a new home? I looked at the black one on ebay but its not up to scratch… not for the money being asked at least.. hope to hear from you.

Good luck with that, low miles rust free examples are rare and commanding premium prices, they do come up occasionally, if your not fussed on lhd then across the water has a much better selection but again premium prices.

Thanks - but I am in that ‘premium price, rare’ zone - luckily. RHD - low miles - no rust…. they exist :D

You might need to look internationally ... unless, that is, you can make an offer someone in UK cannot refuse.
I guess that's the plan. :-$

As an example I bought this last week for a decent sum… 💰💰💰 so I am urging you to come forward if your BX could be available. Thanks

I think the BX is excellent! Now that time and space (and money) allow, I’d like another…. must have ABS though after that white BX14RE in my avatar frightened me one day….
I would also like a ZX in similar nick if I can find one, after regretting letting my previous one go.
I moved to a flat for a while when departing the IOW so everything went 😔
But things are different now 😃

Perhaps the seller saw this. It won't quite reach those heights but it's quite enlightening when you see what a nice example sold for. Current sentiment is moving prices north and there is definitely more interest in the BX outside of what was quite a small group. I hope they do well with the sale.

Prefer it to the Lamborghini, like Signor Gandini!

Indeed! I certainly think the market is moving North… I don’t think anywhere up to 10k is unreasonable at the moment for the right examples.. €47k is a bit rich though 😱
