Thats some lovely shots of the GTi. I love piccies like that, they could be straight from a catalog!
Nice work dude, and look! It's THAT white P2 valver behind your car at the national. Owned a dude who was clearly too good to talk to us mere mortals....
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...

Those alloys are very nice. What are they? Really suit the car.

Yes saw the dark one at the National. :)

I have seen that scene many times - we've had 7 citroens (5 BX, 1 Visa and 1 Xantia) in the last 20 years, all maintained there until xmas eve last year! (when I was told not to come back ..... )
Think I have also seen the blue BX there and at Limbury Meads,

'91 19TGD 'Alpine White' 28.02.91-21.07.14 "Daisy" R.I.P
Still on the road - Many thanks to Rob Moss at Chevronics, Hitchin, Herts

They are genuine BX alloys made by speedline as fitted to hurricane and 16vs (in different rim widths) and were optional on GTi's 8vs.

Whereabouts were the first 3 photos taken? They remind me of somewhere in Ireland but I can't put my finger on it... :?:

In that case I should recognise them as that's where I'm living at the moment :oops: - my wife reckons that it's Dinorwig reservoir (where they pump the water up to a reservoir high up during the night, then release it when needed).
