The Doctor's travels through time - Warning! Low coolant. Apparently

Biggest clue would be hissing noises and/or black smoke under load.

Actually taking a look should be pretty informative... it's basically just a radiator at the end of the day.  Damage from that sort of impact should be pretty obvious.

I still reckon I’d have gone for the free BX - as much as I love these. 

I needed a daily I'm afraid, so a project was out of the question. This has a year's test, so no immediate worries. (touch wood. Oh crap, hope that wood has been disinfected!)

I wouldn't know, how would I tell? 

If indeed it is so equipped. A lot of the PSA stuff had a top mount inter cooler.

Nice purchase. I liked your 218 as well, looked a fun project. This looks a good candidate for a funky paint job - dazzle camouflage?

Chuck a boost gauge on it, turn up the fuel pump and bleed valve the turbo wastegate. 💨

As an added bonus the gauge will tell you if it's losing boost pressure out of any possible intercooler damage.

I've bashed my head on it twice, it has to go. 

Do you know anyone who wants the wheel trims? 

@catsinthewelder might want the trims for the 220 bike. I fixed the broken one using an inner ring from a Clio wheel trim during my brief tenure but spares might be handy.

At least the front bumper is super easy to remove on these.  As a car to just use and be practical, it's a pretty good choice.   Best of all, no need to worry about tarting it up.  Hope it looks after you.
