    Introducing... the worst kept secret in "Zafira Discussion & Chat" history...

    ...yes I bought a bus

    He/she is a 2001 (Y Plate) 2.2 Elegance, with 110k on the clock (not that it drives or looks like it), full service history, and is pretty much immaculate, bar a little patch on the o/s wing mirror cover and a small (repairable) chip on the windscreen. I have started "work" on it as well, with my traditional 1st mod of the interior mirror swap. It seems to fit in with the Zaf much better than my old mk4s and mk3, because it's the same shape as the wing mirrors

    Anyway, I'll let the pics do the talking at this point.




















    and the 1st mod.. swapping the interior mirror

    BEFORE = ugly and square standard piece of poo.





    AFTER = beautifully rounded, matching the wing mirrors, and how it should have been to start with.





    All comments very much welcome

    What sort of price for the 308s Danny, possibly interested

    Supercharging is out of the question. If I had the money to spend like that, and if I'd been after a fast bus, I'd have bought a GSi or a cheap VXR. This is a compromise between price, performance, and running costs

    ***

    General plans, in the rough order I hope to do them in
    • Debadge rear end
    • Remove "Elegance" bumpstrip badges
    • Change H/U
    • Fit Vec intake that's been sat in the garage for 6 months
    • Fit facelift OE rear lights (no orange bits)
    • Exhaust
    • Waxoyl/Hammerite underside of the bus & in arches etc
    • Full colourcoding arches/bumpers/bumpstrips
    • Interior & Engine bay plastic painting/flocking/upholstering
    • Either ph2 Vec GSi wheels, Saab ALU150 wheels, or Coupe Turbo wheels.
    • Brake upgrade (either greenstuff pads plus drilled/grooved discs or 308mm setup depending on price)
    • Light tints on rear windows so don't need sunblinds for Chloe
    • T/C switch
    • Cruise Control
    Wouldn't mind fitting a few other toys and bits from other cars as well to modernise the whole thing... I'm thinking along the lines of VW illuminated sunvisors, slat-type interior vents, Zaffy B steering wheel, Richbrook/Vauxhall handbrake & Gearknob and a few other bits & bobs

    Also considering adding a bit more ICe, got plenty of stuff left from my installation days. Maybe just look at a roof mounted screen for the little 'un and my old PS2 for entertainment when camping.

    Looks like a sound list of stuff you are planning.
    Tempted to darken your headlight surrounds? Looks most effective on a silver bus IMO.

    possibly, depends on how the bus looks overall when/if I've colourcoded everything. I may end up just spraying the headlight internals the same colour as the bus.

    Nice clean looking bus, certainly doesn't look like it's done 110K, welcome to the bus club.
