Very nice! I'm not entirely convinced by the wheel trims - but then I'm a bit of an old git - so don't take my word for it :D

Your next job's a bit of black lacquer on the sills I reckon?

Which type are you after? I've got some of the 'button' kind - but I'm not sure they're right for your car ( you're welcome to one for a couple of bob if they are)

Tim is 'Mr Wheel trim' round these parts - I'm sure he'll know which are the right trims and where to get one.

TXD trims are like this I think (According to my Citroen brochure here)???

Also check out the front wing - there's a badge under the side indicator... what's that? Anyone have a badge like that on their TXD?

This is just a guess, but might the last BX's have engine size badging on the wings like ZX's have?

Yep the very late BX's had engine sizes on the wings, I imagine these were dealer fit though so probably explains why its a bit hit and miss.

I can't remember fitting any wing badges at pdi, but i have a 91 reg txd with engine size badge on wing and a 93 reg txd turbo without badges.
Both cars had one owner berfore me and were supplied by the dealer i work for so i think it was factory fit or not.

Original Freeborn plates! Probably an 0703 or 01703 area back then too (it was my local garage)

I\'m gonna be honest, I\'d take those trims off and drive over them a few times. I\'d rather drive on the discs than have those on! But otherwise.....nice one! It\'s a bit different too; none of the door pillars are painted black, or the bit around the vents and boot.
