Should be mate, I'm planning a trip to Southampton sunday to collect some bits from Capri, although if you're coming up and could bring said bits, I could give you the money for Alex, and the wheel bolts I have for him. My ankles currently FUBAR so driving is difficult, so that could work out ok??

Awesome, I'll make sure I'm not several hundred miles away then, or buried under a bus!

It's a date. Although much against your probable wishes, I'm leaving the valver at home and bringing the Xantia....incase this one needs a tow :lol:

I went silent on this thread because I had such high hopes of the ebay TRS. Kitch, if you ever decide to sell one or 'tother, please let me know!

Not if it needs a tow you won't. You'll be connected to the Xantia by about 4 feet of pole :shock:

Right, well as of this afternoon I own this little beauty:

Bit of a result really. I knew the work needed already, so it didn't come as a surprise. But I didn't realise the rest of it would be so good. This car WILL be at the national, and in as close to show-winning condition as I can get it.

The 16v also managed 38mpg today too, so was really chuffed about that. Even if it does sound like a bag of nails in a washing machine. But I'm glad I ditched the Xantia at the last minute to take the BX there. :)

Many thanks to Chris, and Chris :lol:
