I have only gone and......

Post by Toddman » Mon Jan 09, 2006 1:21 pm

Bought a bloomin' TD BX :P
130k and on a J plate hoping to tidy it up and put it back on the road but it must of had a lot spent on it at one time as it appears to be gunmetal with cituning front bumper and sideskirts,quad headlamps and cituning dash kit which is going back a bit and some rather tasty OZ alloys.
Will be picking you guys brains for any info on the car once I receive it at the weekend.

Cheers

Sounds nice and now I have good news for you too. If by `gun metal` you mean the dark shade of metallic grey (almost black to look at) I have loads of mint body panels etc in that colour and you have a set of twin headlights which you know deep down you don`t really want.

TD

Post by Toddman » Mon Jan 09, 2006 2:04 pm

Well here are the pics I have but I think the colours might be a little off - leather and the car look a tad bluey and I am hoping that the car is gunmetal as I have a P2 16v in gunmetal as well as my white beastie 8) Cavmad you are 3rd in line for the quads mate - I had no idea they were still so popular.
Would love to find some history for the car as it was obviously someones pride and joy and maybe even a demonstrator at some point.

Looks superb mate, that`s one hell of a car you have there. BTW I`ve just had the two others in line who wanted the quad lights and they`ve both said they aren`t interested anymore and also said you should do a deal with me for the leather as well :D

Certainly does. Some TLC and you'll have a very nice car. Not so sure about the chav dash kit but the rest looks fine. Unlike a modified petrol engine, Diesels can usually take it so it should be ok. Follow the usual recommissioning route and good luck!

carbon fibre stickering wants pulling out though IMHO.

Rest of it looks a good car.

TD

The CF was a cituning kit from years back and was available in CF or aluminium foil style - I think I still have the catalogie from way back then.
Some interesting bits on the car will know more at the weekend.

:D Id have a diesel bx if i had the room. It would have to be a tzd model in olyimpic blue or grey. Then id maybe fettle it a bit for a bit more power. often thought about changing the rs turbo for one as diesel makes more sense for running around

:shock: Don`t tell him that for heaven`s sake :D

Vanny, I now may have put two and two together. You have pm by the way and I have one garage with a certain BX (petrol) hatchback inside it awaiting a visit!
