Acceptable accessories...

Post by Philip Chidlow » Wed Feb 01, 2006 6:43 pm

OK, what BX accessories are 'cool'? Are Tailblazers 'Hot' or 'Not'?!

I have a Citroen BX dog guard. That's OK, I guess. (Except I don't have a dog #-o) And headlight protectors... I even remember seeing on eBay a while back, plastic doors for the storage compartments in the boot - and they went for a fortune!

I have Gold door locking knobs :shock: Headlamp protectors, the infamous bonnet scoop, temp and boost gauges, roof bars, graphites, and a nice cold leather interior :roll: I may replace the gold knobs 8)

Those heated leather seats have just struck a chord with me, I have just been out in the car, its bloody freezing. I was unaware that they were an option on the BX? was it part of a winter pack or something? not sure about the faux timber bits though, might clash with my faux checkerplate floormats and the purple neons :D

OK Ian - at the risk of being labelled brash! - is the Tailblazer for sale?!

I think they look quite neat on a dark car...

Headlight protectors, mudflaps, dealer fit Blaupunkt Boston radio/cassette Citroen BX rubber floor mats... and a BXClub sticker, an accessory no BX should be without :D

According to the original bill of sale, the car was originally equipped with a dog guard, but this is now missing - all I have as a reminder are the odd dog hair or two.
