Indeed it is, mind you with it being adevrtised as a Gti it may not hopefully attract too many puggers!

I can't believe you didn't notice that was a valver Tim! :lol: You're normally so anal about things of that nature.

It is a good looker though. I think there are a couple of guys interested on the 16v forum too.

I did notice its a valver Kitch but didnt advertise the fact purely for the reason that if anyone "puggers" are scanning the posts if its advertised as a GTi not a 16v they may not bother to look!

you see there is method in my madness.

As for being anal, those in glass houses! :D

Oh who cares if they are! :lol: Its not your car afterall.

I do like them in white though. I only ended up with a red one because there were no black or white ones around, although I'm now glad I got red. I can see it fading, through my glass house.

I REALLY like that. Its not that far away either. White is definitely the best colour for BX's I reckon, though I saw one once in a really dark BMW blue and it looked awesome :twisted: .

3 BX's is too much though, and I need to spend on the 2 I've got this month. Gutted :( .

It aint got 16valve badges on the side's either.

I know this car, it nearly ran me over on the way to work the week before last. Being driven by a woman with the red mist, and it sounded awful.

I see it quite alot around the Lawrence hill / Easton part of town.

The body looks really good, but the engine sounds like a bag of nails with a load of revs on.

I know the couple selling the car from the Bristol group of the 2cv club, they are genuine enthusiasts - she is a bit feisty, if she nearly ran you over she probably found the BX a bit quick for her by comparison with a wheezy 602cc 2cv.

Dont think it was intentional! She just seemed to be "elsewhere" !! That and with the speed she was pulling when she nipped past I doubt she ever saw me trying to get my phone out so I could take a pic!

Does look like nice "in the flesh", I'ce got a red and black one, so maybe I should have a white one too...... at least its very close to home... hhmm....
