Hello!

I just wanted to introduce my self as I am new to the forum after purchasing yesterday a 1.6 ZS.

So far I am very pleased with my purchase although I did learn from my insurance company that the 1.6 didn't go into production until 2003 and mine is a 51 plate, so I guess it started life as an 1.8 and had a new engine fitted.... I guess I am not too worried as it goes okay and the gasket cover and sides look new

Anyway, I'll be buying a new, but not expensive, CD player to replace the current tape deck and probably replace the rear speakers depending on how the new stereo sounds

Feels good to be driving something manual with a bit of poke after getting bored driving my old automatic saloon!

Nice to meet you!

Firstly - Hi - and welcome to the forum.

Do you not think it more likely though - that you've actually got a 1.8 ? Or - it's a 2003 but someone put it on a personal plate perhaps - is it an interesting number at all ? Have you got service history, books etc or receipts ?

Perhaps some pics and the gurus may be able to help.

Hi and welcome

The chassis and engine numbers will revel all.

Also does it have a commision number on the door shut?

Hi and

Plenty of help on here if you need it, just fire away.

All ZS's are great handling cars, have fun.

Someone here might have a CD player, if you are lucky.

Have you got service history, books etc or receipts ? - I have the original service book which does have the correct reg number and says it was first registered in October 2001. Confusingly the V5 does say it is a 1600. Also the seats have the blue trim but the car is silver, but I guess that may not be too important

Perhaps some pics and the gurus may be able to help.[/QUOTE] - Pics coming very soon

Engine number on mine starts with 18K, which I think means 1.8 K series, assume yours should be 16K, going by that theory...
Should be on V5 or is stamped (awkwardly!) on front face of engine block near where it meets the gearbox.

Shows as 1600 on DVLA site, odd as I bought my 120 in Aug '02 and I know the 1600 came out after that, "maybe" its a pre production or something?
