You can't beat a white Phase 1 16V, I have one as well :D

Have you tinted the rear lights as they look like originals with a dark cover :?:

Hello TycoonX, looks as though you've been busy. I can't imagine that there are many BXs in Slovakia let alone 16vs. Good work!

Got to agree with Tim, forget that its a pug one, its just a horrible bulbous looking wheel in a bx :shock:

The ZX wheel fits nicely in the BX. I had an AX GTi wheel in mine for a bit, which is the same, although not leather...

Erm, if you had go with any of them, then the zx one, but even that doesn't look quite right to me, the rim looks a bit too fat. Why not fit a proper BX wheel, there are 2 versions, either would suit the car much better, or if you can find one the rare momo wooden one?
