1991 - BX 16TRS automatic - 75.000kms...
Beginning 2002, I spotted this car at a
dismantling company in Brussels. After 6 Visa's (or more) I was in for a new
experience and I enquiered about the whereabouts of this vehicle; Abondoned by
the previous owner because of an oil-leak and loss of power. To take away for
peanuts, otherwise it would be scrapped.
So this BX became mine!
The oil-spill was an overload of oil in the automatic gearbox and the loss of power was solved by bolting the carburettor onto the engine. I passed Technical Control and now I'm catching up with neglected maintenance. (filters, oil, belts, brakes, tyres (155/14!), exhaust, ...)
|Ever since that drive with a GSA C-matic a few
years ago, I was convinced about the advantages of automatic
gearshifting. No more worries in traffic jams, just 2 possibilities,
driving or braking.
As a tribute to the GSA, the C-matic-logo signals this is an Automatic BX.
The steering wheel comes from an "Image"-model and within time, lots of other gimmicks will be added to make this BX a comfortable (and affordable) family car for years to come.
After driving this car for over 4 years, it was time for a change. The counter was now pushed over 150.000.
Soon to come on-line: The Xantia 1800cc / 16V - 1999.
