I never fancied one really. A buddy had a 2.1 TD which drove very well though.

I have owned a 406 2.1 + Xm 2.1

Both had Epic pumps which never gave me any trouble .

Everything else gave grief on the Xm. :evil:

Aux - Belt breakage killed the 406 :( ( got under cam belt )


My Last BX was a very , very good car , only sold it after 6 yrs cos I fancied a change - silly bugger ! G358KUM wherfore art thou ?
