First day of bx ownership in 5 years

Post by adamparis54321 »

Just came back from my 5 a side in the bx and my god did she get some attention

I was asked 9 times if it was a delorian ( damn silver)

I normally ride a 19 k bmw k1600gtl and the bx got so much more love !!!

At the age of 26 my friends think I am a bit strange but this 400 pounds of vehicle will bring more happiness if I had a Ferrari !!!

Look forward to some shows near sunny Essex next year !!!

christ you got a bit over excited about the £8.00 ebay remote central locking,
just be careful you dont have a gentlemans accident while driving it.

My kids mates are used to me chauffering them around in "strange old cars" including gangsta lowered toyota camrys, mk2 golf GTi's and even customised volvo 340's
but the BX was by far their favourite

Hi mick


I think it may be the CD player but should it just plug straight In using the ISo plug for audio or should that little brown plug be connected ?

Fantastic to see that Mickey's treasured BX has gone from one loving home to another :D - don't think I said hello yet, so hello and welcome, hope to see you and the Meteor at events sometimes :)

IIRC permanent live and the earth are in the Brown block, ignition live was a seperate lead (think I taped over the end of it ) hanging down independantly, it comes from the clock feed.
Feeds for front speakers and aerial coax should be at the radio housing, don't forget what I said about undoing the four screws around the radio flap/housing and taking it out ad it makes fitting the cage easier
