Firstly my 306 has no badges on the front wings (could be a spec thing but I've never noticed a 306 with them) and secondly the TXD Turbo just says turbo, not D turbo :) a little late but ...

Did any BXs actually have these little front wing badges? I am guessing that very late TXDs might have had 1.9D - and I think I've seen 1.6i too - never TurboD - but aren't all these 'after market' - or dealer applied?

Yep......Monica has them! :wink:

On the rear right-hand side of the hatch, there is a "TXD Turbo" badge too.

After a worryingly long time the Hurricane is back on the road as of a week ago. Took it for an MOT expecting the fail sheet to go rolling out of the garage door but it passed first time. :o I nearly died.

Also after months of not a single problem with the TXD, which hasn't missed a beat at all, we're starting to get a few of the little BX problems again with this Hurricane. These problems and other bits will hopefully will be fixed soon, will see how things go but it's a shame for the TXD which is off the road now as we can only afford 1 at the minute.

Got these pictures on my phone from the past week.

At least, after a long gap, there is another Hurricane rolling round Preston. :D

what BX?
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...

Nope not us although we are there in the Green ones every week.

Also as some of you may have noticed in the pictures, it didn't take long, the rear arm bearings have started to creak. :(
