I'll take a couple. Have you considered doing a clear sticker with white lettering as an for inside along the lines of the original Citroen stickers such as 'Xantia - air-conditioned luxury'? Would be more interested in those!

These particular stickers are designed to be applied to both the bodywork and/or the windows... this fits in with plans to sticker up the BXs on the Challenge.

So what I can do is also obtain prices for transparent plus white lettering (which is a nice idea - I'll make sure the design/typography is in keeping with BX/contemporary Citroën style).

. . . . or 'Citroen BX Britains number 1 diesel' or my personal favourite;

'My other car's a BX as well (infact I've got 9 of 'em and 7 of those are knackered. If I don't get rid of them all soon the Missis sez' she'll leave me - God, I'm gonna' miss her'

The aircon was about the only thing I liked about my Xsara, until it stopped working.

I think 'Vive la difference' might make a good sticker. Oh, isn't this where we came in?
