168 bhp?

As it's one of the last it'd have a somewhat strangled 148 bhp cat version of the Mi16, wouldn't it? :?

Looks nice though. And low starting price with no reserve it should attract some interest!

That's Ollie selling that car on someones behalf.

It will be the 160hp version.
- because Ollie would have said if it was not, and the catalysed versions are extremely rare in the UK.

Adrian's was the only one I can remember.

I expect this car is as good a BX16V as anyone is likely to find now.

I hope it stays as a complete car.

Must say it looks - and sounds good. Wonder what the price expectations are...

Not all K-plate 16Vs had a cat, as it was not a legal requirement until '94 IIRC.

Looks nice, I'm tempted myself... I'll be keeping an eye on it for sure. Being in the care of Ollie means it should be well sorted.

Forgive an ignorant question here but I don't recall reading it here or on
the net; does anyone have any idea how many of these were registered
by CitUK? Are we talking a mere few 100 odd or about/over 1000 odd?

With the ever present threat of a cull for engine transplanting what kind
of quantity of 16v'ers are still around now, has anyone had any figures
from DVLA for registrations and/or SORNS?

CitUK imported 434 S1 and S2 Xantia V6 Exclusives and there were 990
S1 Activas and 234 S2 Activas made it as RHD; these too are now being
culled for the engine as well... :evil: :?

A very few 16V on K and L in the UK have cats.

they were not a legal requirement on new cars until Jan 1993. IIRC

L plate GTI 8Vs have a cat and completely different engine to earler cars,
and are less powerful.

The 1.6i BX has one too, as all petrol cars had to have them by 1993.

Few BXs were sold after the new rules - so this is not something one meets often.

Not me sadly... I was sure it would get more money than that.

Oh well.

Got to see how well the white one does in it's MoT before I can contemplate buying another one... But I am seriously looking for a Phase 2 in the not too distant future... Black is really what I want, so if you spot one of those for sale, let me know :)
