Seeing as I'm new to this BX lark, I have to say that ad gives me some ideas for modifications to my GTi :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Ian popped over to see me last week to drop off the rest of Hilarys parts, it seems he was offered a deal he couldnt refuse and was assured although the car would be repainted etc that it wouldnt be cut up or scrapped.

Yes it was the low mileage 19TXD in white that was chopped up and Ians car was the one that skids into shot at the start of the ad.

I know this is a very old thread, but as I feared the ex Ian Fearne car never saw the road again after the advert and is untaxed and out of MOT.
