    Default 1992 BX 16 Valve for sale

    Hi, my name is Julian and I'm from the Oldtimer Centre in Chippendale in Sydney. We have just acquired an excellent BX 16 Valve which I'm tempted to keep for myself, but I thought I would post it here to see if there is any interest.

    The car we have is a 1992 build 1994 compliance with 127,000ks. It is a metallic grey colour in excellent original condition. It has very complete and detailed logbooks showing the spheres being regassed and replaced regularly, oil leaks and hydraulic leaks attended to promptly. The timing belt and front spheres replaced about 10,000ks ago, the LHM was flushed at the same time. It is registered until Sept 2004 and the asking price is $9,950.

    The car is superb to drive, everything seems to work as it should. The cabin is very quiet and shows no real sign of aging. The only negative I have found so far is that the air conditioning pulley is noisy for a few seconds when first started but we will sort this out. The aircon has been converted to R134A and is nice and cold.

    Thats a nice clean looking example Julian. I would imagine that the handling and engine performance would be solid. Does it have the same engine as a series two Pug 405 Mi16? I''m not in the market for one but it is an intersting vehicle. good luck.

    yes, it's a great performer, it handles surprisingly well - corners very flat. It's funny watching cars following you through corners and trying to keep up, they drop back very quickly when they find they can't hold the same speed!

    it is the same 1.9l engine as the 405Mi16, not sure what constitutes a series 2.. i'm sure it would be the same engine as the mi16 of the same year.

    I think the series two is a 2 litre engine with a cast iron block.
    No series two engined BXs ever came to Australia to my knowledge.
    This BX 16V is known as a BX 16V series two (148 BHP with cat) as opposed to a series one which was 160BHP with no cat. The later ones they got in the UK had the cast iron engines but even over there they are as rare as ......Hope that clarifies not complicates the explanation.

    Looking at the Pic of the engine, it is definately a series 1 Mi16 alloy block.

    That is one nice BX with excellent milage. Should sell easily.
