Can you get a 1.6 turbo? I haven't come across any.

Not in the Zafira Tourer, usually see them in Astra type, Mokka etc.  :y

Its a good little engine but, the Zaf C is a shed load heavier (1700kg kerb weight) than a Mokka (1400kg)  :y

The 1.6 turbo petrol would be a better fit.

I questioned this, sales bod informed me 1.4 Turbo had more power  ???
A 1.4T has more power than a 1.6T?

Well according to some sales guy at my local dealer, he said 1.4T had more power than 1.6T  :-\

He did also inform me auto diesel Zaf Tourers were rare  ::)

You've only just got the XF?

Glad you like it  :y

Winning the battle with forums for DIY?

I'm keeping an eye out on XF-S, but so far the 3.2 does around 5-7k per year so far. Done very little to it since last summer, apart from air-con regas and finally replaced rear number plate. Oh replaced exhaust rubbers as they had split, thats it! This summer needs oil and filters, but so far so good.

These big 6 pot Jags are not brilliant on fuel it appears, I've given up resetting 3.2 fuel use. Too depressing! But it's appears to have stabilised to around 23mpg over last 6 months.

I took my 3.2 to Vauxhall for a re-gas, they gave it a free health check on the side. Came out all good!

Suspect I will get them to service the Zaf, keep book going on a 2014 year.

I wanted one but out of budget as only put auto to 1.4 in 2015 ish, so I have 2.0 diesel.

Research suggested though 1.4 bit underpowered and needs high revs all the time, fine for pottering around town. But if he does motorway stints i would go for the diese.

Itís 165bph, even in auto trim my Zaf does not disgrace itself. At no time does it feel under powered, easily zips up to 90 without breaking sweat.

Soak the cable adjuster in plusgas, leave it for a day or two  :y

The lights fitted to your CD spec will be projector type, you can polish the lens with 3M kit. It's very simple, just using a cordless drill you can use the attachments to polish up the lens. The difference can be significant, along with new Night Breaker bulbs will improve the light output considerably. I had a good improvement on my old 2.2:

Going from this:



To this:




HID/Xenon's are far better though, but to fit these you must fit the headlight washing system and self levelling adjusters along with bits on the back of the car, so you don't dazzle other drivers.

Washing kit alone is needed, as I found HID's are affected a far more by road muck. In the 3.2 I have them, I was them/the windscreen even when road has not been that dirty, the light output increases hugely after a good wash!

Is the whole of the front seats heated or just the base part you site on?

Ah. Sorry miss read. On mine I tend to notice base only, as I usually switch it off after few mins.

The back seats have their own switch near cig lighter. Ones in my 3.2 (be it leather) still work front and back :y

General Car Chat / Re: Oil colour...
« on: 19 May 2018, 16:17:56 »
Ecoboost means petrol, I think Shack went 2.0 petrol if I remember right.

Personally I would not expect oil to go black that fast, oil in the 3.2 is getting a bit old for my liking at 6k now, but it's still fairly clear.

At a guess because the engine is new it's picking up loads of cr@p as engine is so new and working itself in?  :-\

Did you get a chance to feel the oil? (rub between thumb and index finger) Could just be dark for other reasons, if it felt corse/rough then that would be more of a worry.  :-\

Diesel it's hard to tell, so used to have to feel diesel oil to see if it was full of soot.....

The Zaf has a speed limiter, never used it, prefer cruise myself.  :)

General Car Chat / Re: Eicher brake pads
« on: 16 May 2018, 14:40:11 »
I paid £13.50 for Eicher pads for the 3.2, 50% discount "flash" sale. Not actually got around to fitting them yet, but went for them as DTM and few others mentioned Padgid have gone down the crapper in terms of quality.

Suspected Brembo ones are just marketing BS in a different box, so went for Eicher. Will let you know when I actually get around to fitting them along with the discs.
