  1. New Dvd Satnav Unit Fitted (Pics)

    Looks excellent You could remove and sell the Bluetooth module which used to operate your voice control and phone connectivity there worth around 70 pounds generally fitted above the glovebox under the dash. remove g lovebox and look up inside.
  2. If upgrading anything you may like to view my list of guides
  3. water leaking into engine

    The root cause is the washer jets on the bonnet, very common problem as the rubber deteriorates some bathroom silicone around them under the bonnet will prevent any further water getting in there. The rear spoiler can also leak the to deterioration of seals around the bolts I've siliconed mine before it began 👍
  4. You could fit a relay to the headunit power supply which would act as a remote switch. meaning the relay would only allow power to flow to the radio when the engine was running. This would cost you around 20 pounds and three hours of your own time installing. Firstly check the engine bay fuse box for signs of water, A common problem is they leak and allow water in to bridge connections of factory fitted relays which causes wipers and horn to become active at random when car is parked and locked even at 2am for example 😁 horn and wipers going like its possessed by a demon but truth is only the finance company can posess a vehichle if finance isint kept up then it can become reposessed.
  5. Been thinking about this for a while now and I've come to conclusion. The focus at present is standard front bumper; I have sold the front lip and splitter a while back as I planned on fitting an ST front bumper. I've had the funds in my pocket to purchase the ST bumper now for a number of weeks and I've gone off the idea since my attention is more focused on improving the interior of our home. I can't leave the focus looking like work in progress with zetecS body and standard front bumper; I've gotta make it either st or stock. I can't remove the side skirts as the original scuff plates were removed to fit and there on with tiger seal. But the ZetecS rear diffuser will come off and will be going for sale. The duplex exhaust tip section will be removed and replaced with a 90 degree single elbow under the stock bumper, If anyone is interested I can have it cut from the backbox resulting in a perfect split duplex end. Finally then the big one; The four Genuine 18x8 Facelift ST alloys which cost me 475 euro each yes each. New from Ford with tyres They have just been wrapped with Four brand new Avon ZV7 tyres last week at a cost of 480 euro. Yep there going for sale too Might aswell sell them with new tyres ready to roll. Will be looking 660euro shipped to Northern Ireland, 700euro shipped to UK mainland or 600euro collected for those. Putting it back to 16" and removing the stripes. Overall it will look like an unstarted project instead of unfinished, as my interests have changed and I'd prefer to spend as little as possible on the car moving forward. Any interest feel free to contact I'm not in any hurry to sell all parts are Genuine as shown on the build thread.
  6. Hello and advice please

    Excellent choice sir 👌 if your Pioneer headunit supports self calibration of equiliser I can loan you the required mic. For calibration Also if planning on fitting an external amplifier I highly recommend purchasing a Vibe 4AWG wiring kit I'v done full audio upgrade on build thread link:

  8. WiFi/Ethernet help.

  9. WiFi/Ethernet help.

    Have you tried using a CAT7 cable instead of cat5 they have identical RJ45 plugs but capable of up to 7gig per second transfer rate 👌 Bought all mine on eBay although I've got 87mb broadband I have noticed faster transfer of data using CAT7 cables link: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/331640857289

  11. Public Transport vs Car - your thoughts??

    Over here for me to get a return bus ticket to Dublin as in; paid both ways would cost €28 just for myself Now for me to put €28 Diesel in my car I could drive it up and back twice. With the whole family in the car. Plus no foreign language screaming in the seat or junkies around bus station in city as I wouldn't be near it. I was going to see a show in Dublin with the family last Christmas; for us to get the bus would have been €67 return for all five. I drove it up and back aswell as paid parking for 7hours total cost €37.45
