Valver's are FTW my friend!

I could use a few bits off it if it is a scrapper and Bandit doesn't want the whole car....

The bloke obviously doesn't care so I'm gonna nick it and leave a Honda Accord in it's place to see if he notices! The seats will be wetter than a Haddocks bathing costume by now!

i haven't got my 1st one sorted out let alone getting one with known problems + all the unknown ones. If you want it Doc...or Charlie!!!! then help yourselves....I still have my heart set on an XM...

if u excuse my french

SHIT

copy of email i got this evening

Charlie

Sadly, I decided to get rid of the BX. The cost of repairs (the window, a crack on the windscreen that was barely legal, and other things too on top of the leak), MOT, road tax etc was triple what the car was worth. So no more BXing for me. Hope yours is doing okay.
