  1. Autoglass tomorrow

    When you phone them they already know what glass you require and they will tell you what you'll get .... Like for like unfortunately.
  2. V5 incorrect information

    Check your colour code on your vin plate -> http://uk.nexaautocolor.com/media/227358/nexa_autocolor__ford_colour_codes_2002_to_2012.pdf
  3. Autoglass tomorrow

    They should check the auto wipers work while your there (least they did with mine). The guy pointed out the original screen wasn't even bonded at the top passenger side! How it never leaked I don't know.....no problems with the Pilkinton screen they fitted to our Focus but I've heard a few have had problems with their auto dimming mirror or rain sensors.
  4. V5 incorrect information

    You tried the reg number in etis as well? (Stranger things have happened!)
  5. Dash cams. What do you have?

    The lower the F number the more light gets in, the more light that gets in, the faster the lens, the faster the lens, the more expensive it is. Like I said, it's the same in photography, the faster the lens (the lower the F number is, the wider the aperture is - more light is allowed to enter so it's more expensive!
  6. notifications

    I do, but the search function at the top of the page won't work for me (so I can't search for subjects in the forum) and sometimes I can't edit my post.
  7. Dash cams. What do you have?

    The price will reflect the fact it's an f1.6 lens. As in camera lenses the wider the aperture the more expensive the lens is!
  8. Check the battery voltage, easy and quick to do and if nothing else it will tell you wether the battery's dud or not
  9. m.o.t

    I remember saying a long time ago that mot's will just get stricter and weirdly was told by some "it'll never happen!"
  10. Dash cams. What do you have?

    Mio Mivue 518 here. 1080p full HD/GPS/F2 lens/parking mode/Emergency recording http://eu.mio.com/en_gb/mivue-518.htm
  11. Speeding

    tell your mate to say he's a footballer and a fine/ban would cause him untold hardship, then he'd get off a bit more leniently !
  12. Tank Millage

    When I said 'normal' I mean everyday driving, not playing at being Sebastian Vettel at every set of traffic lights or junction ;)
  13. Advertising fails...

    Looks like it's been abandoned!
  14. Top Engine Mount

    I think there's a bit on the site (or a number) to contact them for prices if you can't see the item your after Tom, I've bought wheels from them for two Fiestas and phoning them, they were quite good.
  15. Tank Millage

    Depends how you drive it, we all 'think' we drive 'normal' but in reality we don't, so if your the 'gung ho' foot to the floor, boot it away from the lights (I've got to go fast) type then 304 miles 'might' be a decent mileage for your type of driving. Also, short journeys will drag the mpg down!
