bx 17 tgd bumper colours

Post by arlever »

hello all.
just been looking at a 1992 bx on ebay and notice the bumpers are black.
my 1991 bx which i am in the middle of doing up has rather poorly painted maroon coloured bumpers to match the body paint.
can anyone tell me if this is correct or should they be black to keep it original ?
thanks in advance.
andy.

Both options were available with most later cars having body coloured or slightly contrasting bumpers .

No BX had black bumpers as standard, the latest cars had painted bumper to match the car and lower spec/older cars had colour matched plastic which were close but as Kev says slightly off.
