Default bluetooth to the car

When I connect Z1 to car via Bluetooth it drops the media volume to 50% so I have to turn the car volume way up to hear it, should it change back to CD for any reason I am nearly blown into the back seat
Obviously I can faff about and go into settings on my phone and turn it up but is there a way of stopping this?

Without the aid of a 3rd party app, I don't think there's anyway you can avoid this. I'm sure I read somewhere it's connected to EU legislation on safe volumes: BBC News - Fears that music volume limits 'could be ignored'

You could try an app like tasker or automateit and have that set the media volume to a certain level when an external audio source (or specifically your car) is connected.
