Hahaha! Thats like saying "forget a Xantia V6, what you want is a castle" :lol:

No thanks mate, I'm getting rid of my Xantia tomorrow night as it is. Only two cars for a while now :shock:

By the way, got next week off between jobs. Should be able to provide you with some material :)

As we have several new members since Kitch originally put this up, if anyone has a set of original BX 'millimetric' alloys kicking round the garage, I'd be willing to take them off your hands for an appropriate consideration. :D

Weird - Do you want me to have a bash mailing them again? I dont get the Cironean any more, so I have no idea if you used the twaddle I wrote - talking of which This Months BXPress - If you think you can do better, and I bet you can submit something to the Webmaster

Still, looks the same but much cheaper tyres.
