didn't have time to scroll through all 6 pages of them :shock: but i was watching the 1st bourne identity movie the other night, the scenes in and around Paris have loads of BXs in, a few getting mangled in car chases/crashes :( but looking pretty cool trying to dodge oncoming traffic.

So thats why the anti-roll bar was invented...
'92 16TXS (m), Dark metallic green, 74k
'90 16TZS (m), White, 86k
'89 19TRS auto, Olympic Blue, 133k
'88 Saab 900 8v Turbo (auto) 107k Red with Tan leather, lovely drive and well maintained.
'07 Hyundai Santa Fe 2.2 CRDi 85k (m). Practical family wagon

That is funny! Someone really is a spotter. We need to get that guy 'Diehard' from that forum on board - he seems to recognise every bloody BX model there is from some half-obscured photo : Ah, yes that's a Mk.1 TRS. Could be a 14 but those mirrors..? ( anyone here??) Incredible. :lol:

Probably my favourite car chase ever... but there are a few more than just the one BX :lol:

I like watching the chase with the XM earlier in the film... especially when it changes from a phase 1 to Phase 2... and back again. Several times :lol:
