  1. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

  2. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    Good to hear you've got some more solid dates now, last I was told was still looking at Feb / March for mine ordered in November but by the sounds of it that could be abit unrealistic!
  3. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    Anyone waiting had any recent updates from dealers if production is back up and running as it should be? All been quiet from mine so far!
  4. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    ^Thanks! Looks like April for me then maybe later by the time it gets here :( Atlesst ill have made few more payments on the current car so hopefully worth closer to what I owe on it!
  5. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    This is exactly the message the dealer showed me when I ordered a couple weeks ago - they advised me it would probably be February/ March for mine to arrive but I’m not feeling to confident that will be the case if people who have ordered in June are expecting February too! Im in a bit of a strange situation with my car, am currently in negative equity on my current car which is on options, they did me a deal I was happy with but come the delivery of my new car that deal may not be so great any more seeing as id have made at least 3 more payments on the current car - Cant see it’s value falling as much as the 3 payments are!
  6. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    Ordered a Titanium X MK8 on Sunday, told not to expect delivery till February - although hearing story's of people who ordered back in August and not getting theirs yet im not too sure if that will happen now!
  7. 2015 Facelift Sat Nav

  8. 2015 Facelift Sat Nav

    Hi Just picked up my Titanium X 2015 Focus - very happy with it but wish I got the sat nav built in, any one any idea how I go about this or is paying ford £500 the only option? I found sd cards on eBay but i imagine there's more to it! Thanks Marc
  9. Focus Mk3 Hand Brake Cabling

    Its a Pioneer SPH-DA120 Im not to bothered about the video stuff to be honest jut want to adjust some screen settings but the manual says the handbrake must be on for these settings to become accessible which is a pain!
  10. Hi All Ive recently fitted a new radio headunit to my 2014 Focus mainly thanks to help from people on here! One thing im stumped at is the wiring required to the handbrake - the unit wont allow me to change certain settings unless the handbrake is on which is pretty annoying.. The manual states that the cable must be connected to the power supply side of the parking brake switch, ive not taken it apart yet to not to sure what to expect but when i do get there, what cables should i expect to see and where will i need to connect this? Thanks Marc
  11. Focus Aerial

    Thank you ! All installed now and was working fine... Till this morning I've gone to start it and the whole dash is completely dead, no speedo/ fuel gauge/ Radio/ Displays or Fans.. Indicators work but without the clicking noise, lights seem to work too. I hope I've not screwed it up.. although I've obviously done something wrong, although its strange how it was working fine last night. Hoping its some kind of fuse.. anyone any ideas?

  14. Replacing Mk3 Head Unit

    Hi All I have a 2014 Ford Focus Titanium Navigator and am looking to replace the current sony unit in the car, the main reason being id quite like Apple Car Play. http://www.halfords.com/technology/car-audio/dab-radios-car-stereos/pioneer-sph-da120-car-stereo-with-apple-carplay#tab3 Looking at this one here My question is, has anyone fitted / had fitted an aftermarket unit into a MK3? My slight concern is it may look a bit odd, once done what displays on the original screen? I'm guessing just the time? Would also like the steering wheel controls to work if possible. Also currently the lock / hazard buttons are part of the sony unit, how does this work? Am around the Guildford area if anyone can recommend any local dealers who can do this. Thanks Marc
  15. Hi all My friend had a 2001 Fiesta MK4, he filled up with petrol earlier (hes certain he didn't put in deisel ), later on when driving he noticed the fuel gauge had considerably dropped and his engine light is now flashing. Hes checked oil but not sure where to go from here, any ideas? Cheers Marc
