Don't all front bumpers come ready to fit fogs too? Seem to recall you can cut out the holes easily enough.

I think they do yes but I cant imagine the previous owner having fitting them.

Yeah, all bumpers have the lugs, you just have to cut the three slats out either side.

I dont think I've ever seen a BX with factory fogs and no splitter.

Dont dislike it, just looks strange without the splitter!
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...

Passed its retest, suspension leak was just a split pipe which needed the end chopping, NO advisories!

See you all Sunday! :D

Which does beg the question as to why the tester didn't simply chop the end off and jam it back on during the original test.....
this might be a signature

Thats easy David, MOT testers are a strange bunch.
It's obvious that he didn't get laid the night before the test!

Ta muchly, its could have gone bad but fortunatly the 8 years lay up has been kind to the old girl, bearing in mind its covered 400 miles in its last week which is more than in the previous 12 years!, performed faultlessly today with Owen at the wheel, shame the 16v isnt such a shining example! :shock:
