Nice one. He finds faults with his car and it's the admin from this forum's fault that he hasn't fixed them, how the hell does that work?

As with any free service, we need to ask:

"Not happy with the service? Would you like a refund?"

Hmm.. I recognise the location and I'm sure I remember the fault being described on here at some point.

I assume the "sort your forum out" remark is referring to the painfully slow/ non-existent loading of pages that we're all experiencing at the moment. I doubt it's anything to do with any advice given.

As Stuart says.. whaddaya want for nothing?

A small holding near the equator would be nice...

I know this lad from another forum.
Seems ok actually.
Dont think he was having a go at the information contained herein at all, but as David says, the current slowness / disappearance etc..
That and he couldn't register on here at all because he has a Hotmail account.
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...

Sorted someone out only this week with a Hotmail account with regards registering - as I have said before (my email is public) if you want to register and arer having problems email me - due to the high number of spammers we get daily its inevvitable some genuine ones may get binned accidentally (especially if they have an email like Iamsoaceitsuntruzzzzz@gmail.com and list their interests as work)
Email me and I will register you.

Just read the item description and that could be a very cheap motor for someone as Im fairly sure I know what the issue is (Vera my TZD used to do the same thing and its not an expensive fix depending on how you do it) :wink:
£60 for a 70K mile TZD - with ABS... Not bad, even if you rip the ldonk out to put in another car.

If it can be fixed and put through an MOT, probably a fine car. Some of out members are down that way... any interested parties?

It's not a million miles from here - I'd go if anyone was interested.

Before I'd settled on a car to replace Snoopy, I said that I'd only have another BX if it was an equally perfect Mk 1 TRS, or a late TZD turbo. The consensus was that I'd better not hold my breath.

Now that I've got something else, of course, a ton of TZD turbos have come up in the last week or so!

I'm very happy with the XM - just pointing out the irony...

Fixeded. I do that too, though my missus always fails to take it well :lol:

Anyone having a go at this then? Doesn't sound to bad to someone competant.

If it was nearer I would be there with a little roll of wire and a 5 litre tub of diesel - mind you I would be in the mood to break it and shove bits in Lionel whos bodywork is far better.
However a lack of folding stuff means new cars are out for me for the moment - shame because I have had my present one 6 months and am getting ready for a change.....

I know the owner well....he's not having a go at the advice on the forum or complaining his car is broken because he thinks the forum is naff.
He's basically saying he can't figure out the problem, that he's searched on the problem and found nothing and that this forum doesn't work properly and to sort it out :lol:
He, like most people, has a hotmail account so can't get in, thats all.
