ZF Buying advice
« on: 25 July 2018, 13:55:22 »

Hello, it appears I am going to help a mate look at a car. A 07 (IIRC) ZF 3.0 Petrol. Low miles, with loads of toys.

Does anyone have any advice? What to look for, options the cars should have etc;

Thanks in advance, Dave

If XF, the 3l petrol was OK 10yrs ago, but a bit down on power by todays standards.  Front suspension is double wishbone, so lots of bushes to replace.  Base spec is Luxury, and similar equipment to Omega Elite, but no HIDs. Premium Luxury is next step up, and Portfolio is top dog. However, they all seem to have different options installed, so spec is luck of draw.

Useful options can include:
Adaptive cruise
Heated wheel
Music input interface (std on Portfolio iirc)
DAB

I didn't say I had said options ;)

But I do have the heated wheel, and its bloody brilliant in the winter.
