Mine does as well. Also when main dealer enters the VIN directy off my V5 it shows VIN invalid. I think Citroen have been doing some house keeping on their database.

According to the code under the bonnet of my car and the info on the chart my car is Bleu Sirene but according to the chart it isn't a colour used for BXs. Any idea why that would be?

The code is EPN, that shows as Sirene on that chart.

True but they do vary from french to english translation...Rouge Furio is Venetial Red in english.

Ask your local dealer if they can get it based on the code alone.

I've just checked out 'EPN' on the very comprehensive/best (IMHO) 'Glasurit' COLOUR-ONLINE selector chart (Don't forget to hover over the word 'Bleu Sirene Met' with 'your cursor' to see the Union Jack/UK colour) Therefore both correct !

If you care to enter in the field boxes in my link /\ :-

Manufacturer:- Citroen
Model:- BX
Colour Class:- Blue

Then check out the results, you will see that 'EPN' is listed at the very bottom of the results, so don't worry thinking yours is the only 'Ice Blue Met.' BX around !
