Well they could be further away, but might as well be on Mars.

Damn. :evil:

Unless there's someone on here nearby? Who makes regular trips down South?! :lol: As if :roll:

Dependant on postcode you're possibly looking at under £35 to have them delivered to your door. Couple that to the no reserve price and the location (which will put a few people off) and you could end up with a right bargain there.
Failing that try Keith Davis Citroen Specialists near Chester as he had a few sets in a while back now. If he has some I could collect and post them out to you if wanted.

Well....

Perth is only 1/2 hour north of here - and the bridge is free now :lol:

And...

I make occasional forays down south (the in-laws live near Guildford). No current plans for a trip down at the mo, but I expect there will be one in the summer some time.
I NEED a BX TD.

Well, this is all very generous. I think the best is that I ask if the seller would be willing to arrange to have then Parcel Forced, or whatever to me, get a price and quote a price for P&P. If it is around the £35 mark then it is tempting. I would then hopefully have eight wheels in all, from which I could choose the four best, unbuckled ones. The others would be put on while I got the former refurbished and fitted with top tyres.

Alternatively, I'll try the guy in Chester...

As it is I have two definitely OK, one probably OK, one coming from Tim which should be OK and two buckled ones (which aren't worth anything). If I do in fact get a good set of four from the above, I needn't worry. I'd keep the least buckled one as a spare too...

Let's see how it goes.

Again, cheers chaps!
