bx19gti1988 (./5) :
is it not to difficult to find spareparts of bx in UK ?
Why do you would need spare parts if you are driving a BX?
Yes, sometimes it's diificult as Citroën dealers have some parts already run out und the junk yards often don't have BXs anymore.
Sometimes I could use the parts from the C15 model.
In the future, I hope that I can buy third company spare parts as there are for Traction 11CV, DS, and 2CV, but not many for GS or BX until now.
Or I have to drive to France or to order from there.
No problem as my French is excellent.
Citroën has a bad policy regarding spare parts for older models in contrast to Mercedes Benz or MG, for example.
Here in the UK relatively many people use their oldtimers as regularly cars. You see often oldtimers in the morning during rush hour and in the car park of our company is always an Austin car from 1978/1979.
In the UK you can tell from 95% of the number plates how old the car is.
Yesterday evening, I saw on the car park of a supermarket a Morris Minor cabriolet from 1965 - with the postion lights left on.
I hope my BX gets to that age.
