    Hi from Wassenaar, The Netherlands

    Post by MGPete on Tue Apr 21, 2009 12:39 am

    Hi people,
    My name's Peter and live in Wassenaar, a village on the other side of the pond.
    Also registered on Xpower, MG-Rover.org, themgzs but my home base is ZSCentral.com Very Happy
    Here are some pictures of my ZS.
    I had it converted to a ZS 160 VVC in December last year and it drives just great.

    The VVC engine









    ZR 160 badges



    Some shots in France, just coming back from Portugal last week.




    This should do for now Laughing
    Hope to find some good info here on the Chinese development and maybe meet some of the members overhere on MGLive! in July.

    Cheers,
    Pete

    Your latest ZS is a great-looking car, Pete.

    A 160 VVC? Never heard of that in a ZS. Is it the engine from the ZR 160?

    (PS I know a bekerhouder is a cupholder and worth three Dutch Asterix books, so I imagine an "Ontheffingshouder" is the holder of some kind of parking permit., so that the sign says "no parking except permit holders". Alternatively, it says "beware of the elephants". Laughing I can sell you some elephant-repellent spray, brand name WD40. I can prove it works because I spray it on the garden and I get no elephants!

    LOL, I know WD40 works against elephants. I got it in the booth and haven't seen any pachyderms there yet Laughing

    Yes, the engine is from a ZR160, at least the head is. Last October I got offered a revised ZR160 cylinder head including it's ECU. After some thought I got it fit last December Cool
    Ads another 40 horses so the performance of the Zed has much increased.
