Is anyone else just seeing a diesel BX with an engine just under 200cc bigger than standard? :lol:

I've got a soft spot for that estate already. There was a red estate with a raised roof I saw a while back. Looked standard but packed a 16v engine!

its not all that spectacular and certainly not the first one about (though most of them seem to be in holland or germany), it seems to be the latest 'craze' instead of the 1.9td. Only reason not to do it is the stupidly high insurance!


I have also seen one of these in a 205 van! Had to bend the bonnet a lot to get it to fit!

Nargh, no more stupid bloody projects for me for quite some time, there just more hassle than there worth! I'm gonna go get a real job one day and then i'll play again!!

Still i think my next stupid build will have to be a T5 engined Volvo 240 estate!

Or perhaps a 3litre V6 BX, though extending the front might be an ass
