Re: The 16v and the Whiplash Effect.

I agree - I’ve owned a 16v since 2002 but it’s only been in the last few years that I’ve really noticed just how much attention it gets. Just like you, every single time I take it out, even if it’s just to the shops, people turn and look. And every motorway journey I can guarantee at least one perso...

Hi Gary

Re: 2017 Who is on the road?

J-ROL still going strong in East London. At the moment having a workhorse-type life lugging crap around while I refurbish the flat. It has an annual jaunt to the south of France, looking like that'll be October this year. Spot of welding required under the boot (quelle surprise) and the roof and bum...

Re: Thermostat gasket

I've just replaced mine - the stat i received (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/401219862709) was marginally too wide so I had to file down the edges to get it in. It was also single stage 89 degrees instead of two stage 88-89 degrees which I was replacing. I couldn't hang around waiting for another more '...

Re: Valver

The seller was the same person who managed to ruin my old white one in a matter of months, and then sold it off to be scrapped for the bumper trim :roll:

Re: K light on the dashboard

I'm fairly sure the abs light is the only one that is wired directly to the light fitting. Not 100% sure though!

The wire for the K light appears under the dashboard from the separate engine management loom under the RH side carpet in the footwell- which I guess is the passenger side in Portugal.

Re: Phase 2 BX16V Black - Barn Find

We all know how rare these cars are, so notwithstanding the timewasters who contact you, I would say the 'best thing for society' would be for it to remain intact rather than be broken. You're pricing it at £1000 currently, without an MoT. I would advise that you would certainly get £1000 and probab...

Re: Phase 2 BX16V Black - Barn Find

you'd have much better luck putting it on ebay, the facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/bxclubUK/) and also the bxclub.co.uk/forum.
