On the subject of acronyms and newies, can anyone tell me what LHM is? :roll:
The difference between 'involvement' and 'commitment' is like an eggs-and-ham breakfast: the chicken was 'involved' - the pig was 'committed'.

LHM is the green oil used in the Citroen high pressure hydraulic system. 2 flavours naturally - LHM and the newer LHM + - all new is + and it works in BX so don't worry about it.

LHM stands for Liquide Hydraulique Minérale

Alternatively it's a little prayer to offer up when your BX goes wrong

Just to avoid confusion LHM, FDV etc are not acronyms, they are abbreviations. It is only an acronym where the abbreviation creates a word in it's own right, eg RADAR or SONAR.

(RADAR = Radio Aided Direction And Ranging)

Can't think of anything existing for the BX but with some license on "excellent" you could make up say, boxcar.
BoXcar = Bright old Xcellent citroen absolute ride. :) (Any other suggestions welcome :D )
