  1. Past hour
  2. Security Glass

    Is there a way to remove the darken glass on the rear sides and rear window (is it a film) or is it a case of replacing the glass altogether?
  3. 1.5 Ecoboost modifications

    well you certainly wont be changing the intercooler.
  4. Ecoboost low oil pressure

    yep, still got normal relief valve. ive found broken springs on old cars too. the variable oil pump is belt driven, still got a pressure relief valve, but also a solenoid valve that controls the pressure depending on temp and engine speed. normal pumps can give a power loss of up to 10 percent esp at higher engine speeds. reduce the high pressure and you get better fuel economy
  5. Today
  6. Philf1's Nitrous Blue Focus RS

    Have you seen the video of this system being bypassed, it’s scary takes the thief’s less than 5mins to have the car back running again, I know ghost where releasing an update to stop it, did you get the updated version? Let me know how you get on with it
  7. Air flow shutters

    No different bumper styles
  8. 1.5 Ecoboost modifications

    They are still a newly released engine so many people haven’t had access to them yet to see if the bolt on mods work try speaking to Jason Tierny at pumaspeed he will give you the low down on what they have managed to get fitted so far
  9. 1.5 Ecoboost modifications

    Hi, I'm looking at upgrading from my Mk7.5 Fiesta with a tuned 125PS 1.0 Ecoboost to the new Mk3.5 Focus with the 1.5 Ecoboost. I can see online that Bluefin and Pumaspeed do plug in tunes, but there don't seem to be many plug on or bolt-on swap out hardware options. What have people done to enhance their 1.5 Ecoboosts?
  10. broken springs on mk6 fiesta normaly results in the spring coming out and digging in the tyre. lucky so far.
  11. all dealers are the same, theres not many salesmen that ive worked over 37 yrs with i would buy a car off. ive had physical altercations with one or two also.
  12. not quite the case when i fried my ex wifes car ecu. lol but that was on purpose. boy did it stink in the car.
  13. Things I Don't Like

    Yes mate spot on,i have always had some problem and Team knowhow is Team Dontknow when. I was a bit mad when it went off 100% as i always look after stuff like clean screen etc and i get a nice 1inch mark on the top frame,black marker done most but not good.
  14. Auto locking

  15. Dashcam earth point?

    I believe it's sandwiched between the front of the bolt and the bracket (so only contact between the back of the bolt head).
  16. Cam belt

    Local Ford garage told me they don't routinely replace them, and they also said they very rarely have any water pump failures on the 1.6 Sigma engine. I didn't replace mine.
  17. I imagine part of the design spec for any electronic module on a car (certainly modern) would that any input/output will survive a direct short to power/ground with no permanent damage. I am not going to test my theory on this however
  18.

  19. May be leaving ford :( is this a good deal?

    The question you have to ask yourself is will you be sitting in the 1.8 and wishing you had spent the extra £400? If the answer is yes then you know what you have to do. You said it yourself, this is possibly a once in a life time thing so do it the way you want and without compromise. Providing you can afford it, and that’s none of my business. On the other hand Alex is spot on, you will rarely ever get to use the extra power that the 2.0 can offer. You aren’t likely to go over or even reach 149mph unless you go on a track day or the autobahn. I know what I would do, I’d get the best I could comfortably afford and smile every time I drove it. You know what they say ‘if you don’t turn round and look at your car every time you walk away then you have bought the wrong car’ Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  20. ! Guide ! Fitting A 12V Socket In The Boot Mk7

    Pics are missing now!
  21. Ford Fiesta 1.6tdci remap, Advice please !

    Putting any mapping on that increases bhp can cause problems. I’ve had mine done from 95 to approx 120, but had the mapping altered to fade in, so it doesn’t just all come alive at once so not to put too much stress on the components. It is the same to drive as it was before at low revs/speed but if you need more uuuumph and put your foot down a bit it sure moves along. Mpg is better, as I found it didn’t feel like it at motorway speeds and mpg fell a little. I’ve got about 7 mpg extra driving back home after mapping and was liking the extra power and playing, so may get more when just driving it normally, but that’s down to individual driving habits. Hope this may help a little but I’m sure you will like the extra power.
  22. Hamilton Accie - I ken yer drift strange name! Hamish Patel hmmmm I'm actually trying to get a job in their IT dept - Ive applied every time the job becomes vacant - 3 months no joke! They must have a serious issue with their IT department as the staff turnover for the job is terrible, Why you would ask am i applying - cos im curious to see how long id last. I had ahem a slight altercation with my last manaher and got fired summarily shall we say - like you I dont take fools gladly! Canny see a Hamish on their staff list Staff members Sales ManagerKevin Jeffrey / Dougie Kelly Motability SpecialistAlistair Robertson / Sarah Hind Business Sales SpecialistIian Bain
  23. Yesterday
  24. I would tell you the rest of the Hamish story but it won’t be on the forum as I’ll be branded a racist although it was a bit mutual respect between us.. put it this way he certainly doesn’t wear a kilt or have ginger hair! Quite the opposite lol.
  25. Hmm thats good to know The burd (i hope that is not offensive to the #metoo crowd lol) is looking at getting rid of her Yaris and getting the new Toyota IQ 3 years old. She mentioned today she was going to Arnold Clark and i shuddered with fear immediately but i shall let her know ta! Hence why I am posting asking which salesrooms are ok as ive always bought off the trade mags or ebay. Seat Ibiza lol dont feel too embarrassed I used to have a Toyota Tercel - it lasted 3 weeks before it blew up! I then hired a brand new car cant remember the make but on the first day i hit a BMW at 40mph and put it through a garden wall and wrote the hire car off and there ended my job contract lol They dont call me Dis-gaz-ter for nowt!
  26. Cam belt

    I’ve done a number of these now where the ‘customer’ didn’t want to spend the extra on replacing the pump. Never been an issue yet anyway. on the other hand if I’m quoting for a pump i will only supply a genuine ford one with gasket and bolts. If really pushed I’ll use a gates belt/pump kit but I have not used one on a ford so far.
  27. I’m glad to hear you ain’t driving yours with a spring like that! Lol
  28. You're right stef, I'll keep an eye on the fluid level when I've sorted the spring. I borrowed my mate's MK6 Fiesta today because I didn't fancy riding the bike in the snow The steering felt much lighter than mine ever has, so the power steering issue may be resurrected in the future. Best regards, H..
