Not normally a fan, but I have to say, rather nice... 8) Nice valver BTW. Not sure if the Xsara VTS had the same wheels over here in the UK: maybe I'm getting it mixed up with a lesser Xsara?

From the last picture.. you seem to have "original" exhaust? Why not put 2.5" exhaust pipe ;) You'll get turbo in a little earlier, and nice sound is a plus :D

what do you mean ... ? the system had 3 (i don`t know how to say.... in the exhaust system) now it only has the back one, 60 mm is the pipe stainless ,when i have money i will go with 70mm pipes, it sounds good for now ! what i really need is an airfilter , because i now have the original bx 1.9 d and I think it needs some air :roll:
jeth ... i wanted to ask .. what`s your speed at 4300 rpm in 5th gear and in 4th? i`m asking because i`m searching for some gearboxes for me... i don`t really know the ratios.. and with what to start
and the other question i will post it in your thread :D :twisted:

I don't know my speed, my rev gauge isn't working.. But I can tell you this much, it ran 180km/h (near top speed i think) and headgasket blew up (at 1.3bar)

well ... hellou again , the car moves great ... the only problem was that the water pump .. was .. naughty .. it leaked from time to time ... so it was time for a new one .. with the new water pump came the new belt , and the surprise was ... Image , the problem was solved by merging the bx mount .. with the xm one .. i don`t have a picture... but it works now great .. and it sits 5mm higher now .. and i also fitted some 17cm speakers in the back ... with some modifications .. because the previous owner (morron if I may say ..) cut the plastic to fit some rubbish speakers :(

6mm isn`t much .. but with de 205 tyres .. touched in the interior when at full right or left ! so it clears now , also more space for the new brakes that will come (xantia 2 ones) , and it looks just a little bit nicer now :D or maybe that`s just me .. loving my car even more
