2 x BX - 16V E898 DVK & TXi K908 BEW

Post by Maxwell »

Hi there,
On my drive, I have a rotten 16V with a running engine that is complete, save for the front bumper and a last-of-the-line TXi injection with high miles (~160k) that is complete and starting to rot. I had plans to get them on the road, but I bit off more than I could chew and have come to terms with the fact I'm not capable or have the time to get them back on the road. My attention switched to my 1986 Rover 825i and 1989 Peugeot 205.

Both BXs run and drive; however, the suspension on the TXi is not functional as the octopus is disconnected. I abandoned the job halfway through, so it has a new Chevronics octopus, just not fully installed. The 16V's exhaust is disconnected, so it sounds like a dragster; the TXi has a suspected head gasket failure, is smokey, and needs new valve guide seals, etc. Full set of Speedlines with the 16V, albeit needing refurb.

I have a boxed new set of sills (described as full sill repair rocker panel pair) shipped over from Poland for the 16V but never opened or used.

I need these BXs gone swiftly, as my landlord is fed up with the place looking like a scrapyard.

Is there any interest from forum members in taking them off my hands? While between them, I am in a couple of grand, I am realistic in expectations and looking simply to minimise my losses as far as practicable.

Cheers, Max

Hi Max,

Definitely interested in the 16v, so long as it's rotten beyond repair. I need a donor for a couple of projects and wouldn't want to cut up a good shell (or end up with another project).

Can you add pictures of the rot?

Hi Vanny, I'm no authority on these topics, but I deem the shell rusted beyond economical restoration. I will whip off the cover and take some photos of the usual places sometime in the next few days when back from work. Aside from the front bumper, and a headlight, it is all present and correct. It was originally white, a previous owner resprayed it that unusual red.

Hi there,

By way of update, I am moving house soon as my landlord wants his bungalow back due to poor health and his inability to get up the stairs at his current place.

It adds considerable pressure as I'm working away quite a bit over the coming weeks.

If anyone wants to make an offer then please do, otherwise I will have the BXs collected for scrap.

Arguably the 16V should be in the parts section, as it wouldn't make sense to complete all the neccessary work to see it returned to the road.

Cheers, Max

Hi again,

A forum member - James - has been in touch, and we've agreed on the sale of the 16V pending a few further pics, which I'm sorting today.

It's pleasing news, as it'd be criminal to see it crushed and any valuable spares lost.

If anyone knows of anyone who may be interested in the TXi, please do give them my number.

Cheers, Max
