Hi all

Not been on here in a while - the p1 valver is still down at my parents - went for its MOT today and has done a grand total of 41 miles in the past 12 months!

Condition is still pretty good although a respray would still be needed to make it mint. Being garaged in the warm has helped and it does get a run up to temperature fairly regularly

My dad is waiting for back surgery and my mum has dementia so the bx rarely is the first choice for transport :/

The MOT picked up a few minor issues - perished steering rack gators, perished front brake flexible hoses and a slightly noisy rear wheel bearing. Are bits still available from citroen or am I going to struggle?

Cheers all

Adrian

Hi Adrian
Great to see you nope you are doing well?

All those parts are readily available, I know ebay has them al listed and EuroCar Care, ECP and GSF still carry BX parts EuroCarCare is a godsend :D

Sounds like the valver is dping very well must be the lowest mileage example in the country?
