I have been browsing around different sites for BX info (with the words 16 valve or in this case 16 Soupapes).
The latter brings up a lot more sites which make interesting reading. Google translate is a big help.

I believe the BX was not particularly liked in the early days but everything I have found over recent days has been very complimentary and 16v gets good comments.

I have a friend who lives in France, in his last correspondence, he mentioned the early stages of a group forming for the valver so that would seem to back up these reviews.

I found this little site below that has done a top 10.
Many of the cars on there are models we expect to see but I am pleased to see where the 16v is placed considering what follows it.

Number one does not surprise me and in the day number two was not bad.

Prefer it to the Lamborghini, like Signor Gandini!
