I would also like some headlight protectors if anyone has some
( I know I just missed out on the pair Mike P had )

I have already dug out my haynes book of lies for the BX and have been given a sun roof wind deflector in good condition.

havent even got the car yet.

You may be lucky and find a sunroof deflector from a different car that fits - someone mentioned to me once that one off some Hyundai or other was a good match...

Aren't those door wind deflectors, generic ones rather than Citroen accessories? I had a pair of Citroen ones that were like dumbo ears with horrible fasteners that kept breaking.. I've got the passenger side one left with a few assorted fixings which the drivers side cracked and blew away in a strong wind!

Wind deflectors

Post by bx petrol auto saloon »

Dear Susan.
I have a white 93 BX 1.6 TXi auto with abs and air- conditioning as you
know, I have a set of those front wind deflectors fitted to my car by the
previous owner 8) They are fantastic, I love the look of them, they
certainly don,t stick out at all :wink:
Now bearing in mind I polish every part of my car more times in a
year than other people do in a lifetime :oops: As with the headlamp
protectors I have fitted on my 88 SAAB 900i facelift model, and the
window defletors on the BX, I have large old pillow from the bed, and
I remove the deflectors and put them on the pillow and polish them with
your carbody polish :wink: NOT YOUR WINDOW POLISH, as this dries
too quickly and can smear the tinted window deflectors and tinted sun-
roof deflectors too.
I have had no problems with mine at all and they suit the car very
very well. I wouldn,t be without them 8)
I have aswell courtessy of the previous owner a brand new tinted
sunroof visor, but it is unfortunatly broken, so I am on the look out
for a new one too :wink:
Isn,t it this weekend you are picking up BX :?: good luck with that
then too.
All The Best.

Hi Mick,

i bought a set for my Red one, 28 quid on feebay a few years ago and i can drive down to Looe with the drivers window down at motorway speeds quite comfortably so just get a set. Ime sure you wont get anything cheap these days. Got them on all my BXs, Sophie came with them but there is a Mk 1 set on feebay now but its too pricey for me.

I drive everywhere with the window fully down and no problems.

Wind deflectors on the bay

spotted these as I was looking for some as well. Hmm are these worth 10% of the cost of the car?!

Yet further down the list they are cheaper but from the same guys! The joys of the bay :lol:

cheaper version

The cheaper ones are for the rear doors that's why they are cheaper.
