lovely valver, paint looks AMAZING. It appears she is a Phase2, but where is her P2 front bumper?

Nice work, check out www.bx16v.co.uk for more 16v fanatics, we will welcome another surviving valver with open arms!!!!

PS slam her to the bumpstops when you take pics, makes the valver look 23462645765473 times tougher :D
one thing better than owning a 16v-owning TWO 16vs

The car is Phase I. The engine is XU9J4Z 1905cc 148BHP, 1988.

The old owner did this:
- Full engine repair
- Removed catalyst
- Painting
- Replacement brakes - 283 mm front / rear - from Xantia 2.1TD
- Discs and pads FERODO
- New spheres
- 15 "wheels Peugeot 405 Mi16
- New headlights
- The floor is insulated with Dynamat
- and many other small things


I think can do the following:
- Insulation in the doors with Dynamat
- Good music
- New exhaust system, such as devil
- And maybe the engine tuning - megasquirt or chip tuning

So why didn't I see any like these when I was in Sofia BG
Cars like these are not often seen in the street.
The next time you come, call me, I will show you some cars reserved.


Thank you and nice driving :wink:

I love the 16v, The best colour for a BX too.

Just wondering, do you need spacers to run those Peugeot 405 Mi16 wheels? I was thinking about going for a set of those on my 16v, but wasn't sure about the offset.

Where was it first imported from, because Phase 1s never came with a catalytic converter in most countries, and had the full 160 BHP?

Great car!

Regards,
Matt

I only know three Bulgarian phrases:

obicham te (I love you)

gulame dupe (fat arse)

mumkime (bastard(?))

Sorry if these make no sense as written, but they do work when spoken :wink:

I'm struggling to think of one conversation where you could use all three phrases?

Hello,

Offset of Peugeot wheels is 29 and I have no problems with breaks on 283mm but I thnik put spacer letter.
Where was it first imported from, because Phase 1s never came with a catalytic converter in most countries, and had the full 160 BHP?
Car imported from Germany.

obicham te (I love you)

mumkime (bastard(?))

These days starting a project to replace the exhaust system maybe and collector. Is anyone doing this in the forum?

Thank you
