There's no carburretor, its monopoint injection, so in theory should be more reliable & possibly better on fuel?
2002 C5 2.0 HDI Estate - Remapped - It goes better
2011 Mini Cooper D Clubman - it does over 60mpg
1992 TZD Turbo - SORN - slowly getting there
1991 Gti 16V - Blaze is back on the road since 2008
1990 Gti 8Valve SOLD - looks like it's been scrapped
2002 Mini Cooper S - SOLD - i miss this car
1992 TXD - Scrapped in March 2014

Thanks RxBx for again pointing Jeremy in the righ direction.

Im not good at remembering to check the forum at weekends.

And yes, it is about the first and last of the BX's to have monopoint injection and a lambda sensor etc :)

Jeremy seemed quite interested in the estate. We've been discussing it on PMs (while I reminded myself how much I did to it - front to rear repipe, all new spheres etc...)

Thanks Ian,

Have been in touch with Jeremy a bit about the BX's and i believe for a short while he is away from the forum due to 'real life' whatever that is :)

I shall be speaking to him about it i think when he returns to forum land.
