Hi, I am trying to help a friend who has just lost her husband to Covid, and is struggling. She has a 1991/2 Citroen BX 1.6 GTI Meteor for sale which has only done a genuine 18000 miles. The car has just been MOT'd and is in reasonable condition. I hope you can help her, and I look forward to your response.

Ok. I have emailed Graham and passed him my phone number.

As a new member here I wouldn’t expect you to share his number with me.

Thanks again

Was there such a thing as a 1.6 GTi in the UK market?

I'm fairly sure the later 1.6s with injection were just badged "TXi" and were not 'performance' models, but I stand to be corrected...

I am no expert. Though have arranged to be in front the vehicle in very near future.
Will share what I find.

Thanks- I have a 1992 brochure in front of me and the 1.6 was still carb-only then, and definitely not sporty.

Still, sounds like a potentially good buy all the same!

Lance Cole ('Citroen - The Complete Story'*) lists a BX16GTi, 1985/6 onwards.

* A lushly-illustrated book from 2014, but the early copy I have here is awash with typo grizzlies. Otherwise, rather good, which obviously never got properly proof-read!

It may well be right in terms of the continental market but we never had the 1.6 Gti over here

Having seen pictures.
I can confirm it is a bx 16 TGS meteor and not a gti

I am still in discussion with the owner

Fingers crossed.

thanks, yes. I have just located a brochure. Defiantly not sporty

Looks like the meteor is just a TGS with sports seats, steering wheel and spoiler. No ABS or air con.

from the picture. it looks very tidy indeed.

Am thinking it over, really wanted a GTI. Perhaps this will do until one comes along.........

Oh - does anyone know what TGS's go for in good nick. All my research leans towards GTI's

Something that low mileage is incredibly, incredibly unique, even if a 'lesser' model. If I had one I wouldn't sell it for under £5,000

Wow £5k.
I guess that’s the “I don’t want to sell it price”
I guesstimated at £3k.

Guess I am miles off. No surprise there :)

I’d hazard a guess it’s one of, if not the, lowest mileage BXs in the whole country. A few years ago people would have said ‘yeah so what’, but they’re so rare now that it’s a unique car indeed.
Still, the market dictates price as always

True. If the mileage is correct. They also thought it was a gti. !

I am waiting to see an image of the instrument cluster.
