Those Zafiras are magic, they're also a cajillion times better than the newer model.

 

I dunno about magic mind.  Competent enough though.  I actually like the look of it too.  Low that I've stared at it for a few hours.

Zaf does look like a good car, I can imagine having driven a couple* of miles around there that rising temps probably weren't likely to be an issue given the levels of stationary traffic I didn't notice.

 

318 is brilliant - couple of niggles sure, but it's telling how much nicer a place to be it is than that Lexus I test drove on Saturday at 10x the 'price'.  I never met the man, but I figure that's a testament.

Temp of the z18xe should sit at just below 1/2 and the fan should come on at just a bit above 1/2. Believe coolant control modules on these are a weak point, should you be inclined to investigate.

Was last year, we asked and discovered it would be cheaper to commission a tile artist out of retirement!

Three things really.
1. Sorry to hear of your loss. Your father would be proud that his lad had taken on his car, I’m sure.
2. I’d have kept the E46.
3. Does your greyhound need it’s anal glands squeezing regularly?

Ha! Was a genuine question. We’ve had our bitch for just over 12 months, but it’s only very recently that they’ve started to pong. Had them emptied at the vets once and she now smells like the result of session on dirty burgers again. Never had this issue with our old one. Weird.

Sorry to veer off-topic though. I hope the Zafira coolage problem is easily resolved.

He still has - WW is very kindly helping me out of a temporary hole in the fleet.  Sadly petrol BMW saloons of this era are not well known for their good fuel economy around town, or their prowess at carrying dogs, regardless of the requirement to regularly squeeze anal glands (or otherwise).

 

Currently it's not too far away and WW is obv. more than welcome to come and burn some petrol in it at any time, since it's his car!

Very impressed with the Turd Adviser review, it's a long time since I heard "mess" used in regards to self soilfication. 

 

I'm now getting worried about the contents of this book:
