  1. Thanks very much chaps!
  2. Does anybody have any photos which include, or happen to include the floor mat they've bought? I'm looking at getting rubber ones or velour ones, but all I can find are stock photos, and I want to see what they *actually* look like in person before ordering some. Thanks in advance! :)
  3. Ford Sync And Android Upgrade

    Fyi, a SYNC master reset fixed this. You can do it in the Sync menu on the dash.
  4. So I had a security/bugfix update for my Nexus 6 Android phone come through last night, and now this morning it constantly connects and disconnects with Ford SYNC. Anybody else having this problem?
  5. Just realised you can get a standard Zetec S with a 140 PS engine now. Mine's 125 PS and I bought just before the special editions came out with their 140 PS engines. Wasn't even annoyed as I really don't like the look of the red/black editions, especially the black as it looks like it's wearing lipstick on its grill. But now I see it's in standard Zetec S', ahhhhh, bit jealous. But then I notice that the 135PS Mountune upgrade to the 125 actually beats the 0 to 60 time of the standard 140 PS engine. ... Food for thought! :D
  6. Mountune Mp135

    Anybody got this kit installed? Is it worth it? Thinking of dropping it into my Zetec S if I decide against upgrading to an ST.
  7. Issue With Type Pressure Monitoring System

    As you haven't said otherwise... Have you actually checked your tyre pressure?
  8. Well I'm glad it's not just me then. Don't suppose there's much hope of it ever being fixed?
  9. Upgrading A 2014 Fiesta Zetec S To...?

    Thanks Alex, appreciate it! The illumination in the Fiesta ST is all red, right? I saw a video somewhere where somebody was pressing a button which would change the colour, but it looked like that was a mod?
  10. Does anybody have an issue with the autowipers, even on the most sensitive setting, not kicking in with good time in light-ish rain? Also, does anybody have a problem with the one-touch window controls not always kicking in when pressing them both at the same time? If I consciously *really* press them it works almost every time, but if I'm driving and want to open both windows, I still push/flick them with decent force, but sometimes neither of them auto-open/close, or one does and the other one doesn't.
  11. So I bought a Fiesta Zetec S with a privilege deal in October last year, I still love it. I almost went for an ST, but coming from a history of driving standard Fiestas, I didn't want to jump into an ST inexperienced and kill myself, plus the £0 tax and slightly cheaper monthly rate nailed it for me. I got the majority of optional extras too. Dealership rang offering a possible upgrade to an ST, but as I went in, it turns out that the depreciation on the Zetec S has me in some non-trivial negative equity, meaning if I chop in my Zetec S for an ST-2, the best monthly rate I've negotiated thus far with a £750 deposit on top of the Zetec S chop-in is £280/mo with the privilege pricing. My current pricing on the Zetec S due to all the extras is £245/mo. I'm aware now that getting an ST from the start might have been smarter, even though I might have driven it into a ditch at the time. I have a bunch of questions for anybody that can answer: I'm told the ST-2 will hold better value than the Zetec S; is that true? If so, does it make financial sense to change to an ST for this reason? Anybody know exactly how the finance works out when you chop in a financed car for another financed car? If I don't get an ST, I'll almost certainly get a Mountune upgrade, how does this affect the value of the car, if at all? If I get an ST, I might splurge on an ST-3 because of the extras. That said, I prefer my phone's satnav. Is it smarter to get the ST-2 and get all the upgrades except for the satnav? Or is it smarter to just get the ST-3 and use my phone's satnav anyway? I quite like the blue instruments on the dash of my Zetec S, even though the cup holders are still oddly red. Is it possible to have an ST with blue instruments/illumination?Thanks in advance to anybody who can answer any of these!
  12. Sounds like the immobiliser is stopping the engine from being started; your key isn't disabling the immobiliser. Do you have a spare you can try?
  13. Cigarette Lighter

    I'm told that it's unlikely to be a fuse since the stereo and the lighter are usually on the same circuit, which leads me to believe it's likely to be the actual unit itself. Can anybody advise on this? If it is, are cigarette lighters mostly a universal fit, or should I be looking for one specifically designed toward my model? Thanks in advance!
  14. First of all, hello, new here, hoping to be on the receiving end of some advice if somebody would be kind enough to share their experience... As the topic says, the fuel cap on my Ford Fiesta Finesse MK4 is stuck, the barrel on the lock turns, but for the life of me I cannot remove the !Removed! thing. Any hints or tricks for removing them?
