Re: 2017 Who is on the road?

BAH went back on the road last week, and will probably be on the road until the end of August/September. It needs a bit of welding, so long term I'm not going to keep driving it and let it get worse. I'll park it up and concentrate on some of the other projects and come back to it when I've cleared ...

Re: Optimistic on the bay!

I sent him a message and let him know he might have made a mistake.

He replied with a picture of the car it came out of. :|

Re: Thermostat gasket

Stat should come with the two o-rings (or sometimes one single O-ring that slips over the edge of the thermostat) and is then compressed by the housing bolting to the head.

Re: Thinking of Selling my Red BX 16V Owned for last 23 year

I'd get an MoT on it. The values have shot up recently, and are continuing to do so. It'll probably be worth, both in terms of the financial aspects, as well as trying to ensure it goes to a good home; It'll be more likely to be looked after if someone spunked a couple of grand on buying it :lol:

Re: 10 year forum board anniversary plus the old board

I pretty much agree with everything being said. Vanny has always been the man with the knowledge regarding this forum and without him it would never have continued after Matt threw in the towel. As I have said before Vanny myself and many others are very grateful for everything you have done and st...

You'll be fine. There's an active Facebook group and the BXC forums. 205 GTI Drivers forum is also a wealth of info too.

Re: 10 year forum board anniversary plus the old board

To be honest, busy lives or not, this forum is practically failing to register a heartbeat. The BX is a bit of a niche car as it is, and even a forum dedicated to the model as a whole rather than one derivative of it is still going to be a quiet affair (and it is - check out the BXC forum to see for...

Re: Phase 2 BX16V Black - Barn Find

f**k a duck! Are you alright?! :lol: Went back through the thread, and only see one case of someone wasting your time. You get people wasting your time when trying to sell old cars, it's par for the course no matter the make or model. Whoever's bought it is certainly committed, or completely uninfor...

Re: K light on the dashboard

K light is only present on 3-row ECU cars and cat cars. The earlier 2-row ECU cars don't have one.
