Chris, is this a Uk register or are you accepting 'foreign' contributions?

Yep! I'll send all the details and present photos.

Chris, is this something that can be updated too? because I can send you photos now but better ones could follow.

What details are needed in addition to the obvious Reg. No. and model?

Chris, might be worth spacing your e-mail address out or changing the appearance slightly (for example: simcauk at yahoo dot co dot uk) as it should stop the spammers picking it up and bombarding you with shite.

Hi there

Just throwing my hat into the ring and adding my MKI details.

Cars name : Margot
Model : 16TRS hatch
Month/Year: 8/85
Mileage: 98000
Colour: Light metallic blue
Interior: Light blue tweed with rear head rests..Blue dash
Trans: Auto


General condition:
Immaculate straight body (except bad paint on roof)
ZERO rust /corrosion(ever)
Transmission perfect
Engine strong (uses no oil/good compression)
CV's Perfect


Features:
Air cond.
Power Steering
Power windows X 4
Central locking
Centreline Mags.
Towbar.
Driving lights

New windscreen
New steering rack/RAM
New exhaust
New head gasket
Customised interior lighting
New engine mounts
New cambelt
New water pump
New C-pillar windows
Overhauled window motors/mechanisms

Work required presently:
Front struts lube
Front struts return pipe
Insatiably noisy belts
Accumulator/regulator need attention
Front Sphere mismatched/flat
Starts 3rd-6th time everytime!!

As you can see major mechanicals are great but there are quite a number of (recurring) refinement issues that need attention.

Maybe I am biased, but would not be so fussed owning a later model as the quirkyness of a MKI dash layout sets it apart and helps it to be more of a real citroen.
Current
85 BX GT Mk1..
86 BX TRS Mk1
87 BX TRi


Gone
85 BX TRS mk1 auto... SOLD
90 BX TRi..parts....cubed

I recall the blue BX from the CCC rally - later found it on an ebay classified for more than I wanted to pay - the ad stated "if it doesn't sell it will be going into storage for a year" - that was incorrect. And at first I was not sure it was kosher because it was listed as a BX GT but didn't appear to have the C pillar windows. Then when it was seen at the rally it appeared to have the windows but they'd been painted over in the body colour.

Chris, there was also a light blue Mk1 for sale in Classic car weekly - the very one you drew my attention to at the Stratford rally! it claimed to be perfect and all original but clearly had Mk. 2 bumpers in the wrong colour!Anyway, I was very close to going to see it as it was not too far from the CX rally but I decided at the rally that I'd not view it. It remained in CCW for yonks after that - did anyone hear about what happened to it?

Also , the red TRS that was in South Wales - really low miles and seemingly fine condition - I'd really like to know what happened to that one.

Anyone shed any light on these?
