There's some joker driving around Germany with an English spec right hand drive Audi with German plates and everytime he gets photographed speeding, the camera captures some huge muppet soft toy he's put in the passenger seat where the driver should be. The driver has to be clearly pictured for the police to prosecute, number plate is not enough!

I agree that this early diesel must be saved - a true practical classic at a bargain price!

i could'nt sell my lhd BX anymore! become too attached to her,driven her many miles in Europe, a real joy to drive!
i did let a friend borrow her,he had a minor in the passenger seat,a police car coming the other way saw the minor, persumed he was driving, turned around and stopped them! its the small things in life!!

uumm new mot, taxed, rust free shell, rare alloy wheels,full recent service, new cambelt ect (before going to Rome) good spheres, how much ££ to prise out of my hands????!!!
just spoken to owner of bx rd, has 22 watches, the fear is someone will buy for her engine (i've named her Pippa already!)which would be a disaster! the idea would be to A frame it back,
im doing well talking myself out of her!!

Have you got one of these? I know someone who has, and could A-frame it up to you...

What sort of figure would be your starting point on the left-hooker?

if i was to sell my italian BX, i'd want around the £550 mark for her,its not worth me selling her for less than that,as she's so cheap to run! she would soon earn your money back!! a spare front bumper (bought from france!) and spare front wings,would be included,and with a new MOT,she'd have to be looked after!!

Given my current motoring costs, it wouldn't actually make any difference at all! Still, I am very interested. Have to have a chat about this at some point.

Just in case you weren't aware that I own one, I was in fact referring to myself with this post... in that the car in question in the OP isn't massively far from me, and I could bring it up to you.
