If BAH wasn't all blown up, then yeah. I'd be up for it in the Saxo actually :)

Or I could bring the 16TRS. Might need a calendar to record the 1/4 mile on that though :lol:

Yeah I've done it a few times in the BX. Traction is crap though as it's far too slippery. Vanny did it a couple of times at pod too, IIRC.

Best time in the 16v was 15.69 @ 92mph, but that was on an airfield with proper grip!

If they had never made a BX16V, the GTI would be the most desirable BX version IMO.

And the 8V is definitely no slouch. I was very impressed by the acceleration of mine.

I had one for 8 years, concurrently with a 16V for a few.

The 8V is quieter & more relaxed for long distances, mainly because of the gearing.

Its also got it's torque at lower engine speeds, which is better around town.

Jaba did a gearbox mod to raise 5th gear for further improved motorway cruising & mpg, which inspired the mod a few have made to their 16V gearboxes.

That's a lovely example you have there.
la BX 16 soupapes: sachez apprecier avec moderation.



It might be clever now, but it won't be in the morning!

OMG SUNROOF DEFLECTOR etc!

Very nice. I notice yours has painted bumpers, whereas my G reg GTi has grey plastic. Do you know if yours have been painted, or perhaps retrofitted from another car? (front splitter suggests the latter perhaps)

Also, I do like the look of those chrome bumper inserts, even if they aren't original - I'm planning to fit those to mine.
Good heavens! My signature's been moderated...
