Nice one bandit, would certainly help making the car quieter, thats about one of the main downsides to BX ownership.

You can't have it all really. You can have it quet and heavy or you can have it a little noisier and lighter.

Personally I'd like both; My GTI quieter and my TZI lighter.

That's what i'm going to do!

Thats easy!
Take the engine out of the GTi. Then it'll be quieter and lighter!

As for the TZI, remove doors, bonnet, wings, hatch, all seats bar the drivers, viola, lighter! and fresh air at all times!
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...

Quite so. Adding VERY light sound deadening in strategic places can halve the noise without any trouble at all.
