So the BX works and is competant at being a car, but for how long? It's always crossed my mind but I doubt I'll need to worry considering someone at some point took exeptionally good care of it. However, its main bugbear is the fact that it's a Citroen BX that has only just recently been resurrected and then pressed into use. I've had more than my fair share of fun with it and I have made it somewhat reliable to start and run at superearly O'clock, hot O'clock and afternoonafterworkhasfinished O'clock. Basically, I've made it a usable An Car. It's transported all my shit from college and is absolutely sublime on the motorway. I've definitely scratched my BX itch which I've had afor a long time, however, I cannot keep it this winter.
I hope to get my use out of it this summer, get it to over 100,000 miles, and then it'll be up for sale. It'll have a replacement -I rather like two cars and I can afford it- which will be a similar size but will be mechnically simpler. I want something I'll be able to use during the winter along with the Micra without too much worry that something complicated will fail It's absolutely cracking in every way but I'm not skilled enough to be able to change hoses or pipework in the space of a weekend and, if it breaks down at college, I am well and truly snookered. The BX is absolutely cracking as a car and I have complete faith it'll continue to do so for the next person.
