Anything I should look out for on the 1.4T?

Not on that derivative no, the later one is direct injection so a little more sensitive, the one you have is a larger version of the chain driven cam 1.2 used in Corsa etc plus variable valve timing and a few other bits.

Regular oil change is king on them, then they just work and last

Thanks  :y

Yes regular changes, to keep that chain lubricated.  :)

It's use will be 95% town, rarely going on high speed runs. Although when given chance I will take it on long runs, Wales for example at Christmas.

I plan yearly or 5k changes, that would be sufficient?

Can I be cheeky and ask the same question about the 1.6 A16LER (2008 Corsa VXR)? Friend of my fiancée just bought one and I'm sure I'll be the first person to hear about it if/when it goes bang!

Small block engine (family 1), been around a long time (distant origins in the old 8 valves from the Cav etc).

Generally no great issues, its the M32 manual box that was more problematic (although this had a big revision in around 2014ish which increased the size of one of the bearings, re-enforced the end case and improved lubrication......this end plate can be fitted to the older boxes to)

Yes, the more recent Tourer variant. Although I see on the F/L they dropped the 'Tourer' brand.
Since the facelift 2 or 3 years back, its officially Zafira-C rather than Zafira Tourer.

I always use lots of 10W40 semi.  But as its so cheap from dealer, delivered, its not worth getting from anywhere else.
