Another 12 months!

Post by Philip Chidlow »

My 1990 16TGS auto just sailed through another MOT. No advisories and a consensus that I am lucky to have a 'beautiful example' that will 'take you anywhere that will, mate' :lol:

Chuffed and relieved. And it's got a new tax disc to match. I've started using her more frequently now. Averaging about 400 miles a month at the moment. So 30,000 will come up around November/December at this rate. Better take it easy! :D

Congrats Philip!

Although I shouldn't worry too much about mileage mate, I do 600miles a week at least!
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Well done.

My 1.7D has also just sailed through with no advisories at all. Not bad for a £60 motor :wink:

I'm taking Monica next Friday for her test! :shock:

Shoving a new Outer CV boot on her o/s this weekend, as the one that's on is badly split. Apart from that I think she's "good to go" (as our friends across the Pond say!) :wink:

Congrats Phil.....I think ANY BX passing its MOT should be a reason for a PARTY!!! :lol:

Oh...congrats to Marty's 17D too :D

£60 is exactly the right price to pay for a good BX. I payed exactly that for my DTR turbo about a year ago, and it recently went through an MOT with only a minor advisory. It's been a fabulous car so far. 15k miles and counting.

Mind you, I have a feeling the alternator may have just died today. (Not like I don't have eleventy spares though.)
this might be a signature

Freebie TGS is on for MOT on Monday so Phil you may have a source of parts for yours or I will be a very happy bunny!

Mine had none of the above. :mrgreen:

But I am now paying for that cheekiness. I may have umpteen spare alternators, but getting the old one out is thus-far proving to be a pain.

I usually just undo the top engine mount and sling the engine back.
I'm getting rather good at it now! :wink: :roll:
