This is supposedly a MK2 BX GTI???

Maybe it had a shunt and they replaced it with MK1 bits.

My french isn't good, but I understand that as "I changed the front to MK1 bits as I think it looks better"

Or something.
this might be a signature

Close David, it actually translates as
"I spent many hours changing the front wings, indicaters and bumper because I have no life since the wife left me for the local cobbler".

Easy mistake to make, difficult langauge this french stuff!! :wink:
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

HAHAHA

I can't read French so I obviously missed the explanation!

Very good translation though Doc. :lol: :lol:

David, thanks for pointing that out.


I don't really mind the Mk1 look to it though.

I also think Mk 1s look better... but what's the point of doing half a job?

Or just buying a Mk 1 instead? They're not so rare in France as they are here.

Exactly....a Mk1 would be heaps easier and you would get all the "quirks".
