There was an eBayed 106 - K plater (77k miles, FSH) which is in Chorley Lancs, - it didnt meet reserve and the girl wanted £500, I went to have a look at it and after i had stopped laughing she came right down to £400 - she needs to sell, I would offer no more than £300 as its curently SORN'ed, has a fairly short MOT and needs a tyre and passenger door lock.
She is getting desparate to sell! Email me if you want the details.

I would go for a BX, I bought one for £200 [:)] and so far i have replaced the rear spheres, but i knew they needed doing and the cam belt which the prevouse owner had already bought and left i9n the boot for me. i am very pleased with bitch (BCH the last three letters of my number plate) She is very comfy and economical. go for the BX you wont go wrong.[8D]

Ray if you need spares let me know, I've a garage full of bx spares plus a taxed and motd BX estate all which will be going in the bin soon as nobody seems to want any of it and I need the space, see my other post on "old cars love em or hate em" this is a case in point, even on this forum no one was interested in buying my BX despite being well looked after, this will be the third BX that has been taxed and MOTd that I have scrapped this year due to complete indifference, not just here but locally as well!
