Re: oil

You can't beat GSF for the Total Quartz fully synth 5w40 or 10w40 for the valver. You can get 10% off the oil as well at GSF with a discount card :D Cheers Luke Hi Luke, I will get Total as you suggest for the valver, it is worth putting a really good oil in. Yesterday I bought Magnatec Diesel 10/4...

Funny you mention this....I've used Fuchs in the valver last time around and I swear its louder than it used to be! Just picked up some Total 10w40 from GSF so I'll do a change with that soon. Maybe that is the case then. To be honest, I have not driven the 16v much at all recenlty :oops: so cannot...

Recommend an Oil

Looking to change the oil shortly in both the 16v and the td. I used to use Castrol Magnatec 10/40 for ages and had no problems at all in any BX. I then changed to Fuchs Titan xtr 10/40.

After all the suggestions bit late in the day now but this is what I do (or did) Obtained a long thin bolt and matching nut. The bolt has to fit inside the pin of course. I ground down the nut so it would just fit inside the hinges but not inside the pins. When in place take a good length (about a f...

I have collected many pics of bx's over the years, I cannot really say where or when I got this pic. I was just scouring through my Archos and came across it.

Used the jacking up method a few times. It is easy, saves a lot of time, no sore fingers or worn nails. (as long as you are careful of course, otherwise you could have worse!)

Thanks Jez and Luke,

It was my intention to simply add the quick note above tonight (whilst hiding from the trick or treaters that just rang the bell, better get some loose change ready) but I am still here looking at threads and some great pics. Gets very addictive!

First post on the new site

Oops, had a message from Luke requesting I update my details a bit. Done this Luke, please don't remove me. :shock: This is my first post on this site but I was listed on the old site since 2003 as David C so not really a newbee. Just wanted to let everyone know I still have the BX and have moved on...
