Mat's TZD Turbo estate 1993

Post by mat_fenwick » Wed Jun 27, 2007 3:20 pm

I've had it for about 3 years and 55k miles now; you can see from the photos that it gets used! It does get a clean from time to time but not religiously...unless you're offering Tim?

Mods include:

Air conditioning
Drivers electric mirror
16v oil pressure and temperature gauge
16v steering wheel
phase 1 16v alloys
front fog/spot lights (which fit very well in the original bumper)

The next step is to fit a tuned 1.9TD engine which I was given, complete with a (shhh) Xantia around it.

Nice motor Matt!
Estates always look better in a nice shiny RED (IMHO) :wink:

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Check!

Quite pleased/surprised at how well it's come up with just a wash! Observant people may be able to spot one or two changes in the background, the hedge has grown for a start...

:lol: I wish I knew enough Polish to understand that straight away, but I only know "Thank you" and "Goodnight"...

Agreed it looks a lot better, but it's very demoralising how quickly it gets dirty again. Living up a track if it's raining (not unknown for Wales) it gets muddy, if dry it gets dusty!

Thanks, yes they are 16v wheels. I'm on the lookout for a splitter just to finish it off, but it seems so is every man and his dog!
