Hi still trying to figure out how to post photos of my BX on here (wife has had a go too but no success).
Have copied a link to one of the photos - if anyone can give us some advice it will be gratefully received.

Hi just realised that we had posted a photo from photobucket for my BX - really amazed, thought it hadn't worked.

Nice camera, that and the Saab behind make it look genuinely 90s :)

Dear Willy.
Thanks very much for your very kind compliments Willy, on both of
my cars Willy :wink:
The photo of your BX looks very blistering too Willy, very very nice
and a lovely shine on her too 8) love the colour, what model is she ?
I am very very lucky having been a car mechanic since 1977 when
I was 15, served my apprentiship on Citroens. So I do love GS,s GSA,s,
CX,s, DS,s and SM,s. So I bought my first a 1979 Beige GSA Pallas with
44,000 miles from new for £ 700 needing new front pipes, clutch and
both camshafts and all the rockers too, which I did engine out 3 times
in 3 months because I couldn,t afford all the bits in one go :wink:
Then in 1982 I was given my first SAAB a 1972 2.0 99 for a favour.
I liked them so much, I was asked to work for the SAAB dealer :D so
I have been driving them for 30 out of my 50 years :roll:
The one in the drive is a 1988 E-Reg, A9 VCF is my private plate :!:
I was working at the dealer when these facelift models came out, and
thought they were fantastic. I bought that one in 2000 with one owner
and full SAAB s/h with 60,000 miles from new for £ 1,500. now some
9,000 miles later she still is like new. 12 years later 8)
Anyway I must shoot and let somoene else get a word in OK.
I am at home all day everyday so keep in touch Willy and thanks
again OK.

That looks very nice, & a rare TXI model as well. What is she like on fuel, i often wondered whether the monopoint injection is better than the 1.6 carb engines?
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

Well done Vince! I told you it wasn't that difficult to post pics - even I can do it! Your BX looks absolutely lovely -I did notice a pic of it in the Citroenian this month in Tim's column. Look forward to seeing some more at some point. Meantime, happy polishin'!

That is clean, look at those wheelarches! do you have a garage/carcover for her Vince

Having driven a TXI I was impressed, it seemed more reponsive and eager than the carb fed cars although the catalyst did hamper performance a wee bit, but of course no hot starting issues! 8)

Dear Matthew.
Sorry again for my late reply, Thanks so very much for your very kind
compliments :) Matthew.
Yes she does run on fumes, which does make a real change, the thing
with single point injection I find is to know how to clean the idle air valve
gently and don,t touch any of the rest.
Yes she is very rare, I didn,t want a carb model, not when I use them
as little as I do, that,s also why I went auto aswell :D
I will put some more photo,s of the door shuts and the tailgate shuts
aswell soon and some of under the bonnet too as she is polishing up
really really well.
So are you just into diesels then Matthew ? what things are you upto
on your cars then Matthew ? My Dad is into brand new Mondeo diesels,
as he does calossal mileages abroad towing their caravan.
Well thanks again Matthew and keep in touch.
Vince.
