Turbo? Really?

Post by Philip Chidlow »

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/1990-CITROEN-BX17 ... 0584640352

Surely a n/a 17 diesel?

What the FFFF is going on with the wheel trims? :roll: :lol:

Ooh, well, spangly bits on wqheeltrims increase the value of the car right?

It could be a turbo, although I see no evidence of the word "turbo" on the badge, although it's a little hard to see due to the, er, interesting photo's..

Not far from me though.

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Just done a check on it, and it comes up as 60bhp. Of course, it could have had a turbo engine fitted, but nah, I doubt it...

Wasn't their something else "for sale" in Yatton recently? IIRC. (possibly an engine and/or a load of BX spares) :?:

The long bonnet points to n/a too, but if it's just been 'rebuilt'...

Do the spangly LEDs in the wheel trims help to make it go faster? Might as well go the whole hog and fit a big bore exhaust on it :? :lol: :lol:

Witha big bore exhaust aswll the car would be soooo fast no-one but the Stig would be able to drive it!
