    first weeks with a zaffy

    hi folks i got my hands on my new zaffy on Friday july 23rd and have since then decided on what i like and don't like about it

    the car is a new 1.9cdti elite
    mileage is now 2458 in 7 weeks or so the car has run perfectly on the mechanical front but the interior doesn't fill me with hope of it keeping a finish on the first weekend the sun visor on the passenger side fell out of its mounting in the roof lining leaving a big hole the rear load cover plastic handl feels like it will break any time .
    the tyres feel like they slide in the dry to easily this isn't made any better by the amount of body roll
    and there is around half a second of lag between right foot and engine pick up.
    the good bits? very comfy seat for the driver great visibility, corby to north devon and back on 1 tank of diesle, autogearbox is pretty good and in north devon there are damn steep hills , motorway runs are easy and comfortable but 100 is really as fast as it will run and any thing over that is a struggle rear wiper switch is a pain and i still can not turn it off once i start it nothing wrong with it just way works ,
    the leather looks like it will wear sooner rather than later .

    there is nother here realy that would put me of buying another zaffy new its quiet runs smoothe and pulls well
    Zafira 1.9cdtdi elite
    damned fine car

    The body roll really was a bad issue for me but lowering it 30mm and fitting a RARB made it a totally different car.

    I'm surprised that anything over 100 feels like a struggle in all fairness but, if you'd like to have that extra oomph, fitting a tuning box or a remap will get you to near 200bhp.
