A mk1 CX, that's interesting as I thought they couldn't be from a 2CV as I've had one of those and it didn't look right.

It isn't just a car it is a BX and it's my BX. Long live the BX.

I think they were a standard design for all mid/late seventies Cits - just the fitting varied from car to car. Those look like CX series 1 to me.

There's a pair on ebay at the moment - they do look good if you've got the right car to put them on (which lets me out!)

Speaking of mudflaps has anyone seen these;

Cheap and cheerful and not the genuine article but as proper BX flaps are rare as hens teeth these days I thought they might do the job (they only get trashed anyway if you use your car everyday) Would they fit a BX do you think?

Not as 'OT' as you might think - most BXs only go upto '10' but mine goes up to '11';

:D ( apologies if you've never seen 'This is Spinal Tap')

Anyway, mudflaps, you were saying . . . :D
