    New purchase

    Hi

    Today I picked up my 1st Zaffy B its a 1.6 16v Life and has only covered 29k on a 56 Plate.

    Unfortunately I have a couple of concerns already 1st being there seems to be alot of condensation thinking perhaps the pollen filter needs replacing and the 2nd being when I have had the heaters on for a while it smells like warm plastic on the passenger side more so which is also smelt though out the car.

    Could an incorrectly fitted pollen filter be the cause of both issues?

    I shall be putting some photo's up very soon.

    Shall be looking to get it tinted and a nice set of alloys in the new year.

    Any help on this would be greatly appreciated

    Cheers

    Roy

    Its certainly worth finding out when the filter was changed, if at all. Due to it not being the most straightfoward service item to change, I daresay many VX techs don't bother.

    Hi Montyfox

    Cheers for the response the smell is not excessive just annoying and the condensation isn't too bad but I shall be changing the pollen filter very soon.

    Airbox Mod

    I am curious can the free mod be done on both Zaffy A & B as I am thinking to do this on the fleet as Mums is a zaffy A and my old car was and this really helped with the performance and economy some how.

    Maybe one to do in the next few days if the Mod can be done on the Zaffy B

    Any Help on this will be greatly appreciated

    Cheers

    Roy

    Don't so much seem to affect the turbos, but the smaller N/A engines seem to prefer the top pipe being left in.
