hello i'm Phil from bolton

Have a zafira GSI, we needed a new car that was a little more dog and child friendly (we previously had a VW bora) and would also be good as a tow car for the future Wink

This was what £4300 pounds bought us with 11 months mot and 5 months tax Very Happy



I was quite surprised how nice it is to drive, shifts too :rolleyes:

Only a couple of things wrong with it, drops links needed doing (common from what i've read) and it needs a new grill and wheel badge. Oil feed to the turbo seams to be leaking a little too (there's a very small amount of oil where the pipe goes in so it smells of bacon crisps lmao

I also have this (not a vaux but will be vaux powered)

a 1980 mini clubman


with one of these to go in :p


Was pointed here from migweb Wink

Thanks for all the welcomes guys, i'm sure i'll be picking your brains as any problems arise

Picked up a set of GB plates today to replace the 'perry's' ones and ordered a lead so I can use the steering wheel controls with the pioneer headunit

I've not had chance to have a proper look, the hose looks braided so i'm assuming it's not factory? I suspect it's just a copper washer that's needed but i'll take a proper look tomorrow Wink
