  1. Imagine gatekeeping ownership of base spec sierras. Odd. Cars can be not 100% standard and still good fun. Let people have fun, stop being so angry.
  2. Welcome to the old Citroen club, come on in and take a seat! (fair warning, all of the seats are slightly damp, sorry)
  3. For £200, even if it's totally ruined you're quids in already. If it starts and has 4 wheels, on which it progresses down the road on, jobs a good'un.
  4. This has been off the road since the MOT expired in November, just had other things going on. Wife's Corsa then failed the MOT on the airbag light in late Jan which has been a saga, hopefully over soon, leaving us with no car In the meantime I picked up an Aygo with an engine light for very cheap, gave it an oil and filter change, Italian tune up and the engine light is all good so that's been our reliable runaround for the past few months. Actually quite like it. Sweet little thing. Aircon and cup holders too. I miss the BX dearly, always starts even after sitting though. Went into it a month or so ago and there was a small lake in either footwell which was nice. Took out the carpets, rolled them out and dried in the garage, and put little moisture collector's in it which have done a great job. Taking a proper look at it soon to make a list of what I know is needed, and I'll pop it in for an MOT to see what it fails on. I know one of the backs of the front arches is questionable, sills probably could do with cutting out and freshening ( although not an MOT failure I don't think, just I know what lurks). Also the fuel pipe on the injection pump keeps popping off every now and then no matter what I do. Aaaand it has a leaky injector seal. Stay tuned, hopefully movement soon. At least now the MOT will be near summer so I'm not scrambling around in winter
  5. I see your BX related gobble, and raise you a gobble gobble

  7. Have we had this? https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/197b6959982485498/?ref=search&referral_code=marketplace_search&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3A32d28e9e-146b-4b89-9bd2-933509aa52e9 @LightBulbFun
  8. Nop. I've reported it to a mod to move it tho.
  9. Crisp. Probably get £1000 for it as a camper project in this climate though! 😁
  10. Best of luck! Loving the updates, so nice to see this being used compared to when I got it, destined for scrap and sitting on a driveway of a run down house covered in algae. Awesome stuff.
  11. At least it hasn't been sitting on wet mud and grass because that'd be really silly... With petrol prices what they are and the used car market as it is, that's almost tempting. Lop 300 off the price and I'd say it's a go-er.
  12. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1412369 Sinker C5, ABS fault, being scrapped in 5 days. Anyone fancy a rescue?
  13. Not really done much apart from potter about and pickup loads of furniture and god knows I've got enough pictures of that in this thread! Decided to sell up and focus on the BX - as this just isn't quite tickling me how I thought it was. It's averagely economical, averagley fast, nice looking but doesn't give me that feeling the BX does - and that needs some work (and I need a mortgage also - so this will help!)
  14. How goes the 406? I found a new thermostat and another key for it the other day and sent it over to you in a really tiny box - forgot to tell you. Hope it got to you ok!
