  1. @ thesilverfox, can you maybe upload some pics of your unit by anychance? Yes the unit does come with usb but its on the top. Look between the 2 sd card slots there is a lil thingy that you connect the usb cable to.
  2. Still doesn't make sense why it would do it. Dynamat might help you with rattles but ill strip down the doors and play them and see what rattles and what doesn't and take it from there. Might even be a little bit of plastic or screw or something. Have a weekend with your car and try sort it out seeing that ford is being lazy :P
  3. Hi James It might sound silly but the rubber on a new speaker is stiff especially on a sub but even splits cause it consist of a little woofer. So what you do is you play music with it but not on 20 and full bass since the day you got your car. Short term you wont notice a diff but in long term it pays of cause you loosen the rubber and everything inside the speaker so 6 months down the line like me they play like new and they actually seemed to improved a little but not much but just something ive learned from experience. But let be honest if i bought some nice Focal or JL Audio or even Hertz splits for $300 then id like them to last long and then you run them in. Its very tempting but you wont regret it. Hope it helps and you understand.

  5. Hi Firstly doesnt matter which model you bought, all models have the same speaker, splits in front and mids in the back. Ive had my car now for 6 months and never had a problem with my speaker. I did run them in when i got it but never experienced any rattles or weird noises from my speakers. I also added a sub so the fronts play less bass now. Id take the car back to ford and tell them to fix it, maybe it just something inside the doors and not the speaker but good luck and keep us updated.
  6. had my first service on 20000km yesterday and my baby is happy chappy

  7. ooooooopsie thanks man will do. know its bit off topic but what do you call the ford badges that are different colors?
  8. can you maybe upload some pictures of how they look? Where can i buy them? Thanks for the reply though
  9. Ok please help me here guys 1. What is De-Tango? 2. While we on the bulbs, ive bought some cheap white globes and they say they awesome but they kak so any good HID Kits, globes etc you guys recommend?
  10. write the cd at 2x 4x max and you wont get any skipping ;)
  11. I'm a newbie so maybe I will count :) I didn't vote cause you don't have the option there if you first want to see what the market has to offer eg. pumaspeed or mountune upgrade. I'll definitely do engine mods to my fezzy just not too sure what im going to cause I live in South Africa. Also im only getting my car friday, well hopefully. Future mods include: 12" sub with some splits in the rear and front splits upgrade. Titanium Bodykit with steched side skirts cause im getting the 5dr. 17" rims but after seeing ash car with the 18" wheels its very tempting not to get that. 30mm drop. Xenon HID lights. Smoked Rear Taillights maybe some lamex tint on them. all round 45-50% window tint excepts front. Build in navigation/tv/dvd system for sale on ebay (ill have usb also :P ) Ambient interior lights if I can get them Those the mods I have in mind so long.
  12. Hi there. I have a question, seeing im from South Africa I only get the miltek exhaust and k&n induction here and can easily order the ecu programmer to remap the ecu. But unfortunately I don't get the Mountune option locally so will need to import it. Is there anybody that can tell me the difference between the Pumaspeed 140ps kit and the Mountune 140ps kit? are both exhausts equally loud etc. Any advice will be appreciated. I know there is a few guys here that have the Mountune upgrade on there engines but it might just work me out cheaper if I get the miltek exhaust locally than to import the Mountune exhaust etc from the Uk. What i'm trying to say is that I want the loudest exhaust with the most performance besides, if I import the Mountune Kit ill probably the only guy with it in South Africa.
  13. I have a Fiesta Mk7 1.6 Ambiente and i have rear speakers, im from South Africa
  14. Hi FOC Im from South Africa and dont know how many people you have thats from here but I rate your Ford Club is better than out ones here so yeah thats why i joined you guys. Im getting my Car today or tomorrow hopefully. Fiesta Mk7 1.6 88kw Moondust Silver Ambiente Model (Would have loved the titanium) Hope I can learn a lot from you guys here and will post pics as soon as I get my car. Regards Brendon
