Sweet, I'm guessing your TZD doesnt have the chrome trim though. Does it have alloys?

Twas only the TX cars that had the chrome bumper inserts and grille, which do look very smart so a few people retro fit them (inc me)

That statement's not strictly true...

<cough> Meteor! (16 TGS) :wink:

...and I assume by assocation, various other models from the legion of French special editions

Actually I've got a question about the colour, as Boxwolf's seems to be the same. My car's code is ETWc

On the BX DIY website that can either stand for Gris Graphite Metallic or Gris Silex Metallic. But in the original owner's maintenance guide, the supplying dealer wrote Mercury Grey, and several years ago I bought a can of that from Halfrauds on the strength of that. But haven't tested it yet.

Does anyone have the BX Meteor brochure - cos I can't find mine!

Cheers,

Mark.

I believe my TXD is "Admiral Blue" but I may be wrong.

Every time i look at that car, such as when i left it in a car park today it makes me smile, such a nice looking car and stands out against the mundane fiestas and volkswagens that make up most car parks.

Still hasnt quite sunk in that its actually my car, and that I managed to get such a nice car.

According to the 'glasurit' colour guide ETW comes up as :- Gris Graphite Metallic or Gris Silex Metallic, check it out for yourself with the link below:-
http://www.glasurit.com/COLOR/new-color ... language=1

Which was also used to paint some PUGS :shock: as can be seen on the results for ETW if you just put that into the code field :!:
