Airbags in a BX?

Post by kiwi »

Someone confirm this for me that the BX was never fitted with Airbags?

Saw a Car advertised saying the BX19 is fitted with Airbags, sent him email saying they dont and he reckons his two mates have Airbags. Now knowing the BX Layout thats kind of difficult to imagine.

Reckon he dont know his Xs or am I wrong?

Maybe his "mates" were women with pump up bras.
About the only way you'd get airbags into a BX IMO. :shock: :lol: :lol:

Pretty much what I figured of all the stories that go around of slight differances between models sold overseas I could or can not see why New Zealand should have a load of BXs with Air Bags when no where including France should not.

As I am now clutching at starws to figure out what he could be refering to I am wondering (cause I never driven one) is does the ZX have airbags? Thats a 1900 from memory in the Volcane.

I believe they were an option on ZXs but don't quote me 100%.

I've never heard of a BX with airbags but like you say - different options for different markets. Anything's possible.

Only on P reg onwards though. Think they were standard on the run out R and S plate ones.

Sorry - P plate was 1996 -1997 and I think the bags only got offered from about March 1997 - the R plates came out in August 97 and S plates 98, then it all went very odd with the number plate system.

Err.....Airbags in a BX? I don't think so. There wasn't even any wiring to the steering wheel.

I think that airbags in a BX is called "get a Xantia if you really want them".

Seems, Mrs Bird ordered an air bag, but received an engine. :(

They sound a bit like the parts and tools shop I walked into here a couple of years back and asked if they had a tension wrench.
Young spotted type strokes chin and repeats "tension wrench, tension wrench, tension wrench...................hmmmmm" as he wanders off.
"What's it made of????" - steel "an' what colour??" - silver "how long?? (I hold fingers as though showing the size of a fish I've caught)....."Ahh; GOTCHA!!" \:D/
