    WELCOME to Aussie Frogs, soon you will meet/write to some keen Cit-heads here...
    nice ride and expect some questios and coments, so far nice!- i will cautiously mention that french cars in oz are more of the rare variety, and hence they tend to get rarely modded at all, with the majority of the owners enjoying and maintaining their rides...
    my own car isn't exactly standard and a purple berlingo will get plenty of talk hapening here. lets see some more shots..
    cheers Xq

    ps, hey gibgib, have a look here.

    Ok, lets see if ive learnt anything from MAX, Revs, Redline etc..
    Is that a RGM fron grille and eye brows?
    is that a Kingdom front bumper and porsch style splitter, or the standard front wih a splitter?
    Saxo driving lights? or are they OEM in the UK?
    is that a Mongoose back box?
    Those are 17"'s right?
    how close did i get?
    cheers Xq

    ps you can check out all our cars and mine too, in our humble Members gallery, curtesy of the site owner GIBGIB, who also owns a berlingo..

    as above it hasnt got a standard berlingo lump in there anymore, i took it over to belgium to have a 2.1 tdi lump transplanted into it instead of that 1.9 lump they come with, it also has, a pug 406 coupe forced induction kit, the exhaust has been increased to 150mm straight through with no cat just straight to the back box which itself increased the bhp by 15 bhp, when the exhaust centre saw the standard exhaust they thought the van was a 1.3ltr lol so they decided to go a bit mad with it.

    I have the result slips here that increase with everything i have done step by step, ill scan them in at work tomorrow and put them up if you like? deal

    LOL, unfortunately there isnt any room left at all in the back, only used as a show van now, show for a company called cituning in belgium and also for citroen uk, 4 weeks out of the year it sits in 2 different car dealers showrooms who pay me for the use of it (not driving just looking)

    I see you have a connection with "Cituning." Is there any chance when you next are in contact with them if you could ask who (or if) they deal through in Australia?
    It's just that they make a big range of body bits from what I've seen for all Froggies and there have been a couple on this board who have been trying to get this type of stuff but find it difficult to source. cry

    aidi,

    Thanks for the offer mate.
    I won't take you up on it as I drive a BX16V and I would say the range on those would be pretty much down by this stage. However, I'm sure that Julian (Xsara) would be only too happy to get his hands on it as he is right into that kind of thing & would be a more likely candidate.
    I asked the question because we always seem to be having people enquiring about the stuff and where possible, I like to see it stay "within the family."
