I've asked a question - or ten - and got a good reply. (And pics are expected tomorrow which will set my mind at rest a bit more).

My good lady wants this one. And who am I to argue.

Kwality. No pictures, shit description and high start price. Unless he has some mates whacking the price up I do believe you will be the only bidder Philip. Oh, and as 'reserve is not met' at his current start price I wouldn't be holding my breath tbh.

Not going to bid, we are going to wait for answers to a long list of questions and hopefully some pics before we decide. She (spoke to her last night) has it advertised for £500. It sounds a nice one but for that you'd expect it to have no issues. I won't bid, just make an offer if we decide to go for it.

I think it's a bit too far away to risk it without a comprehensive set of pics though.

(And apparently someone local's looking at it today).

I did mention Mr.B's TZD to my wife and we both agree - again - it's just too far away. We'll sit tight and wait I think.

I know Ken :lol: But I just can't justify the time and cost of travelling what will end up being a full day. And I think I'll wait for something nearer - and as my good wife says, we might need something bigger... (story of my life :roll: :lol: :lol: )...

Besides the TZD of this thread has been sold to the people who viewed it this morning.

...and paid somewhere between £450 and £500 i think.

What you need is an XM then, I'm sure she'll like that :lol:

My bro in law, has picked up a virtually mint 2.1td Auto estate for £500 on a P with just 71,000 miles genuine.

Only problems seem to be, the o/s handbrake is sticking and ...






the headgasket has gone. :o

however the head is now off and away at the head reconditioners being skimmed. So hopefully towards the back end of this week it will be back on the road. :?

I advised him to buy it, as it was local and he's unlikely to find a better one anywhere. Sometimes you just have to attack problems differently to get what you want.

My own XM is about to have a well earned 3 month rest. Or at least until it gets a bit warmer.

Seriously Phil it can't take that long to get a train to Preston and then drive it back can it? I reckon it's worth it because BXs of that quality rarely come along mate. I'm not having a go or a dig by the way.

It's OK Billy :D . I know, but maybe two BXs aren't what we need after all...

Ken, an XM is tempting, but I am not a DIYer and think it might be too risky. I was interested in Ian's, but in the end, it wasn't to be.

I think we might end up with a Synergy 1.9TD with air, like this:

In that case almost any crime against fashion in the motoring world is fogiven Phil. That BX in the pic looks ace, 16V I take it?
