This very car was advertised and withdrawn a while ago IIRC. Shame the advert is so full of rubbish. It's a go fast car, driving them like grandad does more damage than driving them as they were designed to be driven. I did chortle at the xantia turbo lower engine mount mod due to the "excessive pow...

Your N/S arm bearing needs doing!

Erm, yes it does seem rather rougher than usual.

That said, oh hang on, your car is catted right?
So it's the DFW engine?

Good points all round. I've had a Walker front pipe with a splitter, and also a Walker that didn't ahve a splitter. either way, neither of the Walkers had a proper resonator, and both made bottom end torque suffer. My car had a Bosal OEM front pipe when I got it, but it was FUBAR. It now again wears...

Erm, all the exhaust bits that are stamped PSA (ie OEM) are made by Bosal..

That does look very nice indeed. The spat idea you saw on another forum, was it a UK based forum? Many moons ago there was a red P2 in Coalpit Heath (half way between Bristol and Yate) that had the same rear arch's as yours, I always thought it looked cool, the car was on a driveway in bits for mont...

Well, BXC has rather turned to S*^T lately anyhow.

I know there's a few people that have said they will bid nearer the end, but if it looks quiet I'll bid and see what happens.
It can replace the stolen one.

It does rather..
I would have a bid on that, but I understand several other people are rather hoping to get it, so I aint bidding against them.

Re: mudflaps

The rear ones for a 16v P1 and P2 are the same as a normal BX hatch, but the "contoured" ones are very rare and as you would expect unavailable new, the "blade" type (One size fits most) do show up ffrom tim eto time but again are not available new from Citroen as I have asked. Is that right Tim ? ...

Yep.

It's not a hard job, when you've done a few, although it is much easier with the engine out.

Re: It lives

Taxed the valver for the first time in 12 months :oops: and drove her yesterday for a ride to coventry, she performed faultlessly (90 miles) and I gave her a good "blow out" on the M42 when the roads were quiet, but had to throttle back at 69.9mph as she was wanting to go and go! *Edited for legali...

Ahh, the car with the long nose bonnet.
I've driven it, it's good.
Do I think it'll make the reserve? No.

Couldn't give the dimensions off the top of my head TBH, not something I've ever checked. There's a few types of gapless ring Vanny, some are "overlap" rings with steps in the end of the ring that, er, overlap when fitted to the piston, some I've seen are a bit like tongue and groove, interlock type...

The Walker front pipe is not as good as Bosal. That simple. The Bosal is still available if you know where to look, the local factor SDL can get them on order. The Walker has a cheap resonator without the fluting, indeed the divider doesn't run past the bend and causes a swirl effect at the base of ...
