Cool, now I can make a BX fly!!!

The north / south divide is always good for a brawl..

I'm a proud southerner, the weathers better, and we have electricity and indoor toilets and glass in the windows! :wink:

Although I ubderstand there's some nice south facing workhouses in Wigan!! :lol:

Thats a very galant offer Simon, but make sure you make some money out of it, there's no space for charity in this day and age..
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...

Ok, Billy sorry about that. Was just a joke - I vaguely thought you lived in The Mersey area! :D I'm not really interested in north/south even nationality has no interest. If anything, I'm European but in the interests of world peace ( surely an impossibility but we must hope) I am a world citizen. Very hard position to maintain as we are all so fundamentally tribal..

It's no bother at all Toddao, was only kidding with you. I'm a Southerner by birth but now (after 40 odd years) an adopted Northerner.
The river mersey isn't that far from me I suppose, probably just a few short miles.
I reckon the zuzlus would have ruled the world if they had LHM. Everytime one of my BXs leaked it was enough to flood the desert :D

Good luck with your viewing Simon, remember not to pay more than scrap value, as they are worthless without an MOT, even a diesel estate.

How much are BX estates worth for the scrappy these days? £125???

2016 Mercedes A180D Sport - Auto refinement

1991 Gti 16V - Blaze - crash damaged, will get repaired.
1990 Gti 8Valve SOLD - looks like it's been scrapped
2002 Mini Cooper S - SOLD - i miss this car
1992 TXD - Scrapped in March 2014

Agreeing a price before viewing....tut tut...just make sure you check it over really well & try & get underneath (safely) to check the condition of pipes etc.....

That could well be your bargaining chip to get it at the right price, if you find other faults....

Be hard with your bargaining, get the cash out & count it out in front of him, hopefully meet pricewise somewhere where your'e happy & then she's yours :D

Unless it really is that good & only has that problem the chap has mentioned, then it might be worth a few quid more than scrap....but they arent gold plated, no one wants em so you can afford to haggle....

Firm but fair :lol:
