Back on its feet 28 Sep 2015

Since the I changed jobs, the car has been getting in a growingly sorry state. I thought it might be a good time to resolve some of the longer term issues the car has had, namely a cracked exhaust manifold and a poor brake doseur valve.


While the jobs where started with best intentions, with wife and child soon stopped play and the car has been languishing, immobile and generally in the way for far too long. I've also found some rust that is not going to let the car get through another MOT.

The budgets are mixed, if it's a company car then something around £25k OTR and less than 135kg/km C02 are the targets to beat. If it's not a company car then the budget is around £5k. In both cases it needs to be big enough to get the pram in, 5 door, and capable of doing at least 25k miles a year. Oh and ideally have ISO fix in both cases.

If its a non company car then something exciting is a must, even if i can only afford the fuel for two years!

So with all this in mind, I've been trying out just about all of the Citroen options, with tediously predictable results

BXs fallen to the scrappage scheme 29 Sep 2014

In 2009 the Government launched its 'Scrappage Scheme' under which owners of vehicle could trade there old car with a Government backed £1000 towards a new car. While my BX Survived the scrappage, not all where so lucky.

This week, after a Freedom of Information request, the Government have released the details of all vehicles traded in under the Scrappage Scheme, and in places it makes for eye watering reading.
