A 17 year olds dream. (Citroen BX 1.9D Saloon 1992)

Post by Modstox257 »

Thought I'd create a little somthing for my BX as im new to the fourm and recently purchased the car. I was just wondering is there any modifications or upgrades anyone would suggest for my BX ? i know its a pretty well equiped car already but is there anything anybody wants to say so i get the best out of my BX :) Thanks.

Andy.

Depends on what you want to modify! Lots of add ons are available, most are quite tasteless and pointless. Dont bother trying to make it faster with induction kits and big exhausts etc as it wont work.

You could fit alloys and of course a huge pumping stereo as is the norm...and the obligatary raft of stickers to the bumpers etc...

Well, you could fit a water and oil temperature gauge.

What interior have you got?

Bud,
i would just drive her for a while and get used to her before you try and change anything as you dont know bugger all about how she normally drives. Then make an opinion.
I have 3 MK1s, and they aint the same as MK2s but when you drive them hard[diesels] you will know what i mean.
You have an unique car now bud, certainly not a pug, and you i hope will become a proud owner as most of us BXC members are. Just drive it and and enjoy as i do.

If you're a fan of that 'Max Power' look where the rear wheels are tilted at 45 degrees to the car, the BX is perfect; just wait for the rear arm bearings to wear out and the car will modify itself! 8)

The grey tweed interior in good condition is rare now....maybe someone will want to buy it ! Ive fitted a "Zenith" interior the same in my 16TRS as its far more supportive.

A set of Silver Speedlines would set her off nicely.
