thats the best looking red BX i've seen in a while maybe bar Richard's 16 pilot he recently sold. Which i could have bought and saved myself a whole bunch of money getting mine up to scratch. Gotta fund the cause though right? That's why we're here. :D
'92 16TXS (m), Dark metallic green, 74k

I'm hoping so. Despite only living 10 minutes away, I've yet to see CGAT (or Neil) in the flesh... weird eh?

If you blink you would probably miss it! :lol:

Anyway that TGD looks lovely, pop those bumper inserts off, bit of wet and dry and some satin black would do wonders! :wink:

Thank you, it's had a bit done to it, I'm trying to replace the old Mai konics kit with a new EMS .... but been working on the bikes. Change is as good as a rest.

Mai konics were at the time Thee CX tuners (based in CHESHIRE) offering various stages of tuning.
Below is how it is today including a rebuild of the tired engine through the course of 2007/8

M25 662 Citroen OE engine (brand new old stock stripped and rebuilt 2007/8)
Balanced bottom end (John Noble motor sports Derbyshire)

8 injector twin airflow meter fuelling (using 2 OE injector sets) reworked throttle body close on
Twin green cone air filters
Bosch 044 fuel pumps
FSE Bullet fuel filters
