I've got to say that I really like this. The first 16v I've seen with the Swift 2 alloys and that nice spoiler too above the rear window. Inspiration! 8)

Inspiration indeed! You have it within your power to emulate such cool.

That's just about perfect imho. Just the right looks without going overboard.

That looks rather like a ZX spoiler to me??
hhmm....
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...

I dislike barry cars, generally, but that looks smart. Those alloys suit the car, I think, and the extra spoiler isn't too offensive. Does it hold a high-level brakelight?

I agree Stuart, I'm not a great one for modified cars, but this one is plain nice. That spoiler adds something, without taking away from the overall BXness. If it is a ZX spoiler then I don't think it would have a hight level brake light - but looking at the picture it seems this one has?

I have a ZX with said spoiler: I'll measure it up and, if it fits a BX there'll be a rush for ZX spoilers no doubt :lol:

The use of Phase 2 rear lights helps add to the effect - a very pretty little valver, that is. (If it was up to me I'd remove the tow bar - not something that in my opinion sits well with an overtly sporting car...).

Don't know :-s , most BX's seem to sport towbars and electrics so when you see one without there instantly looks to be something missing. :wink:

They've almost become a must have fashion accessory to the BX (with practical uses, of course!) :D

I've got a tow bar on mine that I've never used. Maybe if I get tight with that bunch of French BXers they could lend me this strange thing that looks like a gate with wheels ( which model gave up those trims?) with a French bloke dancing on it..

I had those trims on the 309 for a while! Just third-party ones from the local motor shop, I think.
