Does anyone know what silicone hoses for the Bx16v will fit the Zx16v ?

Thanks , Mark

Not many, if any. Bottom hose might be similar but the rest is pretty different IIRC.

Thanks Kitch , spoke to bmbaker about hose for the Zx16v , very helpful but it could work out very expensive per individual hose .

Best idea is buy the hoses, sell the diet-coke ZX 16v and buy the full fat sugary regular Coca-Cola BX 16v :P

Then your hoses will fit and you'll become a man 8)

If I could find a 1 owner and fsh Ph2 16v with leather I would consider selling the Zx but I very much doubt one exists so I'll have to stick with the Zx :wink: which is 1 previous owner and fsh & leather , I can't let the Zx go Kitch there's none around .

Why does it need to be one owner and FSH in a car that's as old as a BX? Mine's probably had millions of owners. It does have a FSH but that's by the by :lol:

I had noticed! Spoke with Tim at CXM rally and it was because two brothers were sharing the car, and kept registering it in each other's names when they took turns on the insurance. Or some sh*t!

Either way, I'm not fussed. Its an old car and if it's had a few owners then it's got an interesting story to tell IMO. I'm not one for these "low mileage, garaged all it's life, one owner from new, comes with it's own blanket" types :lol:
