Hi from Herts

Postby Nuzzer on Tue Nov 04, 2014 8:54 pm

Hi all, my name is Damian from Royston Herts. I'm a returning member to FOG, I used to own CX02 DZF, she was a 2.2 dti lwb Olympus in silver, she was bought off me by a member on here, but I'm back having recently bought NU53 ZZR (hence the username Nuzzer), she is a lwb 2.2 dti limited in silver.

I regretted selling my first one (had hit rough times), when I'd picked up again, I bought an Antara, to be brutal, I didn't like it! So here we are again lol.

So hi to everybody, I also have OPCOM, for anyone who needs a code read or cleared in the area (came in handy as Nuzzer needed a new MAF to get home!).

Oh don't get me wrong, wasn't a 'bad' car, just the quality of it felt a bit cheap, tinny body, nasty interior plastics. Gearbox was very notchy, drive uptake was a bit lurchy, seating position was very comfortable but the heated seats were lethal! Used to play tricks on my other half by switching the seat on when she wasn't looking.

Wasn't the most refined but the one main thing that got on my wick was that in the space of 8,000 miles, the Particulate Filter light came on 3 times, apparently wasn't caning it enough!

I wouldn't discourage anyone from getting one, but it just won't set your heart on fire.
