Thanks. Not for me

I want to stay as original as possible.

Besides. I need to cost up a new cam belt and clutch ( ( just in case they need doing ..) before spending money on wheels.

Take a look on Mister Auto (owned by PSA) for those belt/clutch items.
You can use OE part numbers on the site, as well as go in by model and year.
Plenty of choice of brands there.

Personal recc's fwiw...
- Valeo clutch (was original item)
- Contitech belts/kits (by Continental)

By the way, are those wheel trims original? I love your car but think those don’t really suit it, sorry.

Maybe someone can help you out with a set of BX ones?
I suspect they are not original

I have no love for them either.

:)
The type of trims are very rare now, unlike alot of the BX hubcaps they weren't affixed by the wheel bolts, but instead a plastic trim ring, with metal clips that held the trim itself on, they break/corrode and the trims fall off so are very hard to find.

Leboncoin or ebay france may help

They weren't Citroens finest hour, and look like generic Halfords one but they were fitted to BX and CX models!

Sam Skelton was desperately looking for some of those for his CX.

Sam Skelton would definitely buy a set of those, if he hasn't already found some.
