  • Hi from possible Zafira VXR owner

    Just a quick one to say hello.

    I've been forced into looking for a new car as my MG ZS180 was written off on Friday

    I'll not be getting much from the insurance company with the market having fallen through as it has, but one of my possible options is the Zafira VXR.

    I've been wanting a WRX STI for ages now, but we have a young baby and we know we need a larger vehicle, so if I get a Scooby I've still got to get something larger. The VXR seems like a nice fit if I can stretch to the cost of one.

    I've also seen there's quite a bit of modding potential for it, which does interest me

    Aside from that, I'm living near Stratford in Warwickshire and I work for Codemasters as a sound designer - the guys who do Race Driver GRID, Colin McRae DiRT2 and F1 - not a bad job

    The madfiddler thing comes from the fact I play the violin in a disturbed kind of way

    Wow, hope you were ok after the crash.

    Welcome to the site The Zaffys are great vehicles, really good all rounders and very practical. As you've mentioned the tuning potential is good, the same as astra basically so if you want to go mad you can - quite a few stage 3 Zaffy's on here, and few other special ones as well

    Have a look round, enjoy and don't be afraid to ask any questions - sure our resident Bus guys will assist as much as they can

    Ps - Working for codemasters Nice job, used to love their games when I was younger - good ole micromachines across the ironing board

      Thanks for the welcome Alex.

      Yeah, all ok. Bit of a stiff neck, and *ahem* an aching bottom, but that's about it.

      I'll be sure to ask when questions come up.. Just reading everything there is atm.

                              Loads of bargin Buses about for the buyers market but not to good if you are selling
                              have a look about autotrader and pistonheads sites to name 2.
