Good evening,

my name is Alex, 25. I'm living in Germany near to Hanover. Since three years I'm driving a 1990 BX 14 TGE with electric windows in the front doors, green colored windows, a custom sunroof by webasto and central locking sistem. After repairing my car after a collision with deer by night I decided to customise my car especially the interior. As a result it looks like this actually:

This project still isn't finished yet becauseof lag of parts. Hopefully i'll get them all soon.

Kind regards
Alex

Thank youTim! It was quite a lot of small work in every detail, cleaning and checking contacts, modifying the series 2 electrics so that e.g. the satellites would work etc. Of course I didn't do it alone! I had some help by a german emaster electricien who once did the same thing first time with his former BX 19 TZI in the nineties!
The s1 Dashboard looks more classic in one way and on the other it already seems to be modern again! E.g. look inside the new Volkswagen models, their Dashboards are all in all designed pretty similar.
And it is easier to fix. When I think in exchanging speedo lamps of the series 2 speedo cluster....

I have always loved the Mk1 Dash, I have a mk1 GT which has the round dials which is a shame.

Oh, that's great! The GT is my favorite BX model. That's why I styled my BX a bit like the GT😁 I think the round dials are more useful when driving corners fast. The displayed speed won't change be driving a corner as far as I am informed.
