Nice listing. A challenge for someone. Shame it's a 16 in some respects, as it isn't the most desirable form of BX. Close to 200k MILES will put many off - as will the fact it's a white estate (IMHO nowt wrong with that though!).

At almost a quarter of a million miles on a 1.6 petrol engine, I should imagine that most things are knackered on that. :shock:

And if it's too smelly inside for his kids then theres no way I would ride round in it! It's just as sickly when people try to disguise the smells with those dreadful Feu Orange things and similar. :wink:

I have a 16 petrol with 249,000 on the clock,you'd be surprised if you drove it, very surprised, it is one of the nicest BX's i've driven, ok it has a replacment engine but i wouldn't let the mileage put me off any car

Service history counts for 10 x the value of mileage in my opinion

Oh! Well, Todd I thought the KMs were 249,000 - until I reread the listing - got confused with Arctic's comment. And that's 249k miles! God, I must stop working so hard :lol:

Tim, that sounds great. I've only got the experience of a BX estate and they'll carry anything - had a three piece suite in mine the other week.
Big enough to lie down or carry the overworked Philip flat on his back to the pub for reviving :D
Plus I think they're quite under-represented in the club. How many are there? 2 or 3 ?
