#359443 To Go Diesel Or Not

Posted by tom_d on 02 May 2014 - 07:08 PM

I have a diesel ZS and I think it's great! Could be faster yeah but I can drive it quite hard and still get 50mpg, driving normally I get over 60mpg.

My annual mileage is around 13k so would probably suit a petrol also, but I prefer the low down power of the diesel overall!

I have a 1.6TDCi also so may be able to help a little.

The dpf shouldn't cause you any problems as long as you take it for a good drive or thrash it every now and again, I don't do mega miles and it hasn't caused me any problems.

The turbo lag is just something I have had to get used to, I think I actually like it when I can feel the turbo kicking in, if that's the right word! Haha

Not sure about any ecu re calibration so can't help with that I'm afraid.

Enjoy the car!

#311969 Insurance & Remapping

Posted by tom_d on 15 December 2013 - 10:44 AM

Yeah when I was on the phone after I was told they do not insure it the man asked if I have done the remap already, I said no. He was like are you sure because if you have we would have to cancel you insurance. He was sounding very aggressive haha It was someone over at India I think so he probably couldn't understand me very well, I was saying no jeez calm down!

I don't know but is there meant to be that much smoke? I thought the dpf stopped that.
Do you have a photo showing it from the back off the car too?

Very nice. Did you have it so it sat below the bumper or did they cut it a little? I don't know how to do videos or anything on here. Could just put it up on YouTube? Would like to see a video though

You can get back boxes for diesels though cant you? I presume that what he would he would have asked for when contacting them and booking it

#272591 Best Spray On Wax

Posted by tom_d on 04 July 2013 - 06:41 AM

I use autoglym aqua wax after I've washed the car and I think it's pretty good. Very easy to apply!

I'll keep an eye on this because I'm nearing the end of the bottle.
