Not feeling the love for this anymore sadly. I did have a nagging feeling that I didn't really get on with it when I drove it into storage.
Its been in storage since October, when it passed an MOT after an initial fail. Had 4 new tyres put on it, a rear brake balancing etc.
It had had one owner until i bought it, when she gave up driving and passed it on to her mechanic.
It's got some issues:
-Passenger side rear door bubbling in the window channels quite well. Probably saveable.
-Paint on the roof is shot after a terrible respray on the roof, frankly awful. Patina though.
-Brakes may need an overhaul on the front end.
-Passenger side electric window makes some weird noises when going down
-Boot not in the best way, but I have a replacement with a genuine Abarth rear wing attached, but it is a different colour.
-Dings all over due to previous elderly owner.
But on the plus side:
-Digital dash working fine.
-Seems generally good to drive since the new tyres were put on.
-Had a refurbished carb, new clutch etc put on very recently.
-Fantastic blue interior.
-4 new tyres on decent alloys. The alloys were accessory options of the era.
-Central locking works, woohoo.
-Spares included, new rear lights, boot seal, both stalks.
-HEADLIGHT WIPERS. Only one works.
-Solid underneath, never welded.
I personally think in the time I have owned it, my car preferences have changed. I really like the Brava I now own, and tbh, if it doesn't FTP on me or die somehow, I would prefer to garage it away somewhere.
This is probably a regrettable sale but I want to try other things, I want another BX14 so badly it genuinely pains me.
I have a feeling the refurb carb wasn't set up properly, so it's running a bit rich. And it barely needs any choke to get going.
Asking price is firm. More than I paid for it but the MOT cost me £400 and it's been in £100 per month storage over winter.
It's still in storage and I will dig it out in a few weeks. As such, it won't be strictly available until then but anyone who really wants it can register interest now.
If I dig it out and a serious issue has arisen I will keep it and get it sorted out.
Not a happy sale but all this shit with the Tempra has killed my mojo, plus the general nagging feeling about it.
I am only advertising it on here and select Facebook groups if no takers. The general public can do one.
Any questions, PM me.
I am open to swaps for things like: 405s, BXs, 80s or early 90s Italian stuff, with MOT but a small project is fine. NO ROTTERS.
Oh yeah, sold as seen.
