Was quite easy really guys, I lived at home until 2 weeks ago so have a bedroom full of stuff to fill a big apartment with! Cant get the hang of this washing lark, at my old house it used to magically wash and dry itself and fold itself neatly on my bed! :) Hmmmm!

Doesnt work the same at my new apartment, maybe I should contact the estate agent and complain that its faulty! :shock: Biggest benefit is the garage which is big enough to house the SD1 and have room to walk round and have 3 foot at each end!

Depends how much that 16v fetches cavmad, if I did buy it I would have to get rid of something! :(

Shame the aircon system on it has been open for a while and hence will probably be beyond saving.

Tim, think about it mate, you could save your old car or it could go to a 205 guy and be ripped apart for the enigne and loom and the rest thrown away! reserve is only £400 which is still in 205 engine only money!

Glad to hear the move went well!! You might find loads of funny greyey coloured stuff settling on all your belongings too soon! where it comes from is anyones guess! :D

I agree with Timmo. Get shot of the TZS auto and have the 16valver back.

Didn`t know you had a Triumph 2000 Tim. Guessing it`s a series two if it`s a `73 model? Lovely cars, always wished I`d owned one.

It was offered to me very cheaply, 25kmiles been stored for 20 years but needs recommissioning and a spot of welding (are you listening Ian lol) I did by it impulse Cavmad as I had always wanted one myself. I cant see myself being able to afford the 16v sadly as funds wont allow.

Good luck Tim. If all goes well we`ll have enough BX`s between the both of us to start our own showroom!

I viewed this car about 6 weeks ago. I wasnt particularly impressed with the body but the mechanics seem good.

The owner is a Citroen specialist after all!
