I have to ask, if that's your mother's worst nightmare, what would happen if you bought a really fast car? Or a motorbike? :lol:

My mum wouldn't even know what one was. BX GTi 16v, that is!

Well done Andrew, looks a belter, lovely mileage too!

Are you keeping the wheels two tone or going for the original look silver?

Superb work Andrew. Hopefully we'll be able to line up our ph1 valvers at a rally sometime in the future. Mine is also white and a F reg. :)

Anglia with 120bhp would definitely be more scary! I regularly dyno an Anglia running a Toyota 4AGE....pretty mental!

That said a BX 16v was fast enough for me when I was 20.
