BX Body kit

Post by Philip Chidlow » Fri Oct 06, 2006 9:38 am

I would be interested to know if anyone is aware of contemporary body kit (such as this here) on any BXs we know. I know dealerships offer 'kitted' up special order jobbies and possibly, Citroen were (or are?) no exception.

I'd also be interested to know if anyone has the front centre armrest option on their BX or indeed knows if there's a spare one floating about? :D

Cituning in Nottingham did side skirts for them if that helps mate, might be worth giving them a call?
The headlights on the one pictured are probably Morette items, I have some fitted to my estate!

Interesting. But at those prices I'd be reluctant to consider...

But, if you add together what's needed and add that to a good BX GTi or something plus the respray and wheels and interior/tuning items, plus exterior graphics (á la Citroen WRC/BX 4TC graphics), you're only looking at about £3k. And what can you get for that these days? :lol: :lol: :shock: :?:

Almost needless to say, but it would buy a **** of a lot of many things. Including BXs :lol:

I was gonna say! Yes you can spend £3k and make your BX look like that.....but it looks terrible :lol: The bonnet is the worst bitm the vents are too high and they call it the 4TC bonnet.....the real 4TC bonnet looks nothing like that! For a start its much longer and doesn't have those stupid vents. The bulge does kinda suit it though.
