"Normal" alloys are 5.5". 16V's had 6" rims. Although they are near identical to look at, the wider 16v rim does it for me. the 5.5" just looks limp!
All BX's should be shod with 6J speedlines

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...
