My BX14E S6
My first car wasn't a GS or GSA. The reasons for this are that when i bought my first car i was still a student and could hardly afford any car.
Unfortunately a GS or GSA isnt an affordable daily driver anymore. Parts are more difficult to get and since I am not really technically skilled I would have to go to a garage to do reparations and maintance. And the thing with GSs and GSAs is, that they're not very simple to maintain, so often this leads to high garage bills. Although I am still improving on the technical area, i still cannot maintain the car fully myself. A GS or a GSA is a great car, but no need to argue, they are expensive to run nowadays.
So, what car did I bought? Of course it is the car that comes as close to a GSA as it can get. A Citroën BX, the successor of the GSA. My BX is an 1988 built white BX14E S6. Te 'E' in the type indication means "economique"
cause it is the BX with the lowest fuel use. The 'S6' parts indicates the engine is a clean engine, without catalysator. The colour of the car is as said white (code EWTcS). My BX has driven
224.000km, at purchase the speedometer stood at 191.131km. The car has the well known 1360cc engine and a 5-speed gearbox.
I have also fitted electric windows up front to the car and added rearview mirrors painted in the same colour as the body of the car.
Further the car is equiped with a black roofspoiler, type 1 bx foglights, RPM - meter, 16v front spoiler, headrests in the back and a few other extras. Underneath you can see a list of adjustments i made to the car and also which adjustments i still plan to do.
I have owned this BX untill May 2001, then I bought a Diesel due to the increase of kilometers I drove. I have dismanteld this my first BX myself, for two reasons, I could use the spare parts for my new BX and the value of the car was so low that I would have never gotten a price worthy of all the extra things I fitted to the car. So I had scrapped it myself, trust me this wasn't easy, after all it still is you're first car. But anyhow I had enough cars at the time already, and mine was not good enough to keep.
