Wheeltrims are mostly the preserve of the anorak and certainly for the lose!
That will be me then! (and Tim).

Welcome aboard Charlotte. You know what your BX really needs for ultra reliability? A couple of BX Club window stickers, and funnily enough I happen to have a couple....... :roll:
Nope matey, I said MOSTLY the preserve...

:lol: :lol: :lol:

6J alloys really wont make the steering any heavier, as Kitch said, tyre choice is more important than width.

Young lady, without any doubt at all you should bodykit your car!
MY red car is fully phase 2'd, and it was when it was a 19Diesel.

P2 FTW!

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

Remy has found me a spoiler... in rouge furio...

I know it's wrong to put such things on a 14 but I can't resist! :D

It's not wrong at all, in fact it's completely right! Sounds like you're really enjoying your car, just as it should be.

Amen bro. It's not wrong at all.
It's your car, do with it what you will.
After all, the only thing that made the valver special was the engine. The bodykit has no aerodynamic effect so it's purely for ashetics, therefore any BX will benefit from being more ashetically pleasing to the eye by fitting said bodykit. Go for it!

Then once you've got some NCB built up, we could just drop a Mi16 in your car!

Well yeah, but.... ya know, mainly, just the engine!
Roll bars are easy to change, I'd forgotten about lesser braked models as our entire fleet has vented discs, and Speedlines! Oh, and Le mans and Monza interiors....

Maybe we're spoiled! :D

Look what I done did! No granny seats for me anymore! 8)

And I done made this good an' proper. Trying to find something original to make the hanger from though.

Also - the compound cleaning of my paintwork killed off what remained of the paint on the plastic insignias on the tailgate. I think they should be silver, and Adrian (our bodywork guy) says white. Who is right?
