16TGS auto emerges again

Post by Philip Chidlow » Fri Jan 02, 2009 8:22 pm

My old BX that still has less than 40k on her. Looks good (I'm posting these pics on behalf of her new owner...)

I notice she has the custom plates I had made but never fitted...

And the side window deflectors are a good touch.

Not so sure about a Citroen Sport sticker on the back She was anything but 'sporty'... but an excellent ride all the same :-)

Hi Mark, I'm Patrick. I had the car and took it to the CCC National Rally in July. Not much to say about it exept when i had it it was really lovely but didn't have the Citroen Sport badge on it. I aquired it when it came in Part Exchange on a car i had for sale. I see it still has the original headlamp protectors on.

Enjoy the car it is lovely. :D :D

To keep everybody happy i took the sport part of the rear sticker off today(suppose i was being a bit optimistic). I recently bought the headlamp protectors off ebay..I have even bought a centre arm rest console from france but havent yet fitted it.. :lol: :lol:

If you look closely at the headlights you see some lines. they are on the protecotrs so any stones dont come up and smash the glass.

There's something about that one.

My car looks tidy and well-maintained (apart from the hooj dent) but that one really does look like new. Properly shiny.
