BX colours

Post by jonathan_dyane »

I was having a wander and came across this.

Surely the BX wasn't available in all these colours? I remember many of them from 70s A-series and GSs!

Seems unlikely. I noticed Mimosa - there's a lovely GS running around in that colour (Chris Gordon's Buttercup) but I can't imagine a BX in it.

Todd's car proves they look great in yellow, but I don't recall seeing any factory yellow BXs!

I've got a feeling that these colours cover the entire citroen range rather than just the bx. Even having lived abroad, the majority of these colours were never on the bx's that i noticed....
2002 C5 2.0 HDI Estate - Jasmine - Now SORN
2011 Mini Cooper D Clubman - SOLD
2016 Mercedes A180D Sport - Auto refinement
1992 TZD Turbo - Bluebell - My daily
1991 Gti 16V - Blaze - crash damaged, will get repaired.
1990 Gti 8Valve SOLD - looks like it's been scrapped
2002 Mini Cooper S - SOLD - i miss this car
1992 TXD - Scrapped in March 2014
1988 CX 25 GTI Turbo2 - SORN
1996 - AX Memphis 1.5D - Dream - SORN

Yep that's all the Citroen colours.

I'm trying to decide what colour mine is now. The paintcode is "ETWcA". In the table, ETW stands for both "Gris Graphite Metallic" and "Gris Silex Metallic"...

Colour matches on Citroens even with paintcodes are notoriously difficult. My Rouge Furio Magoo looks more like Rouge Geranium, and there are two Rouge Furios! :?

Now, a convertible BX in Cuivre Indien would be the sex :twisted: if only! Am I letting my inner Chatham Chav show much?!

Agreed. Even Venetian red is different from Citroen Venetian red....

Well, you've only mentioned it once, so I think you'll get away with it!
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...

On the colour4u website mine is Grey Gabion which shows a very dark grey/black patch but the car looks a lot lighter than that.

Don't rely on websites for a colour match... it will only be an approximation anyway, and everyone's monitors are different too!
