One question: Where can I buy a pair of those Fog Lights?
Hello, I think these are out of stock and I get those from Belgium about year ago.

This is good hint. Take somme yello glasspaint and paint original fog lights. I think there is not much difference..:)

love the look you have given that car. really nice.
the picture of the transfer box and gearbox splines look better than the normal splines, did you get the parts made or did you buy them?? i have rebuilt the 4x4 systams before but the splines on the new parts you have look better. was just wondering?

cheers

Hello,

We have a local machining firm which can rebuilt better ones from originals. I think these axels have been exported some where in Europe also.

Yesterday I was on the ice track (on the frozen lake) it was fantastic to drive with Bx and more fun with (FWD) 16 valve BX with ice peak tires.:)

Post by djm666 » Mon Jan 18, 2010 8:16 pm

love it.lol. is that your yellow cx in the background??
i have shipped my 4x4 bx to new zealnd now i pick it up in 6 weeks i think.lol.
i will be going to see the engineers in my local town to get some better ones made.
when i was in the uk i bought 2 transfer boxs and 3 gearbox parts. and 2 of the parts for inside the transfer box.
i cant believe some people are scared of the 4x4, it is so easy to work on .lol.
it is nice to see your 4x4 is being used to its full potential.lol.

That's ace, i want to live in Finland :D

Great cars, loving the cx as well.

Interesting informatio about your local machine shop making better parts for the 4wd system.

Would it be possible to supply some more details & costs involved as i think some of the guy's in the UK may be interested & it might save a few more of these cars as they aren't a favourite due to the weakness in the transfer box, which could all change depending upon the information you can tell us etc...
2002 C5 2.0 HDI Estate - Remapped - It goes better
2011 Mini Cooper D Clubman - it does over 60mpg
1992 TZD Turbo - SORN - slowly getting there
1991 Gti 16V - Blaze is back on the road since 2008
1990 Gti 8Valve SOLD - looks like it's been scrapped
2002 Mini Cooper S - SOLD - i miss this car
1992 TXD - Scrapped in March 2014

This winter is good winter for long time :( There was on the ice couple local Citroen enthusiasts. The Cx is not my car. We have very nice cars but our legislation is very strict so there can't build any fasts cars without enourmous costs :x

I can tell about more these these axel's but this machine shop needs original axels because they are rebuild again. And price depends on how many needs to rebuild. These axels have been rebuild typically for T16. I have done this two times. I sold my ex TF box to another Citroen enthusiast. My buddy has another Bx19Gti4wd with the new axels of TF BOX

Hello,

Last Sunday was again winter driving practice day and of course in the worst winter storm.

http://www.citikka.info/gallery/Ratapai ... i/IMG_0280 Some pictures, taking stop and go in small hill against new C5. Feel the difference 8)

One video from track http://www.youtube.com/user/MrCibx1978# ... S39loXSe8Y

We have here in Finland now 50-80 cm snow :shock:

This is an idea I had one day but my budget only allows baby steps.
How much were the shafts for the transfer box?

^^ But we aren't legally required to be prepared over here, I'm not sure I'd be happy at having to keep a complete set of spare rims with snow tyres on just for our silly bit of snow. Maybe where you are Mat it'd be worthwhile? I saw a set on ebay for 90 euros earlier in the winter, but they were in the French Pyrenees.
