That's lovely; they do look good in red don't they? 8)

Nice car Leo, they do take some looking after but great cars all the same!

The steering wheel is shared with late model TXD/TZD turbo models (hatch) if that helps.

There is a BX16v owners forum which may help with the badges?

Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

the car was registered 31st of october 1989 and unfortunately the air con doesnt work :cry: but some day i hope to have it blasting some cold air into my face :lol: but i have had to put a bit of work in it myself since i bought it in september 2009 i have done some little things like ball joints fixed some suspension leaks change the clutch which was a complete ball ache of a job haha, i have changed a couple of water pipes but i am also in need of a bottom radiator hose (which has an umbilicle pipe on it) i also did the bottom end in a few month back so i had to fix that, luckily though i am a mechanic and i work for my dad who is a citroen specialist so i get the pointers from him hahaha but as he has not had any bx's in for the last god knows how many years he has no clue as where to find parts :(

and matt i would love some badges :wink:
