Could be worse... we had one in our department at An Northern Council, in which the department manager's son had spilt diesel while he was stealing it (the diesel, not the van). Three or four years later it still smells a bit, though nowhere near as bad as it used to, but fortunately it's moved sideways to a different department as well.

Fortunate for two reasons; the smell, and the fact that this is one of the worst vehicles I have ever had the misfortune to drive, in terms of the controls and driveability. Even a Mk1 Corsa Combo is better. Probably even Iv*co's are better.

Utter rubbish everyone knows berlingos are the best small vans bar none. 

How on earth did you find the controls awkward? They're one of the easiest cars to navigate!! Same layout as any normal European  car for the last 30 years? 

Not knocking a combo either, they're ace.

I never at any point said they were awkward.

Having never driven a Berlingo, I can't say what differences if any there are between one and the Peugeot Partner I drove. What I can say is that the gearchange was like stirring a bagful of spanners in treacle, the clutch, brake, and accelerator pedals felt like they were connected using sponge cake, and the steering seemed to be via a steering box made from lego.

The most annoying thing however (apart from the 62mph speed limiter and g-sensor/tracker/fucking back seat driver fitted by An Northern Council) was the complete lack of any adjustment for the driver's seat, which I find utterly unconscionable, and extremely uncomfortable.

Our VW Transporters are a much better drive, a Fiesta Mk3 diesel van was pretty good, though had a weirdly low ride height, resulting in several encounters with Fleet Enforcement querying the load level, the Corsa E van that replaced the Fiesta is a nice little thing, though it takes forever to warm the engine up, and many people liked the Transit Connects we used to have, including me.

I've also driven both petrol and diesel Transit Mk3 and 4s, Merc Sprinters, ERF C and E series trucks, LDV vans, Astra vans, even an Iveco Luton body when I helped the SIL move house, pretty sure the Partner is the worst of the lot.

There's this BX for sale on Facebook. 

I'm quite annoyed nobody got my joke as I was quite proud of it.

Or maybe its just because its not funny. Although the Citroën Car Club probably aren't my target audience with this one.

An original, unmolested car until 2019... bizarre!

Yeah, mental isn't it. They guy who did it probably had all the parts in his shed from the one just like it he scrapped in 1982.

Was just having a conversation with my mate about it on WhatsApp.
