  1. Central locking

    Does it unlock if you press the unlock button again? You can customise the key to only open the drivers door on the first push, so I'd rule that out first.

    How do you find speed bumps with the drop and splitter?
  3. Just waxed her

    Nice car, shame about the parking :P
  4. Update Sync 2 The Easy Way

    Quick update added to the first post: I have read that you may need a minimum of the F4 SD card or newer, however everyone with Sync 2 in the EU should have F4 following the recall (if you have Nav fitted).
  5. Update Sync 2 The Easy Way

    Just might be a bit smoother in places and it will now reconnect your phone automatically if it gets disconnected. Haven't had it loaded long enough to notice much else.

    Mines lucky if it gets washed more than 3 or 4 times a year, lol. I'll clean it for special occasions but otherwise I'd rather be driving it than cleaning it too.      
  7. Update Sync 2 The Easy Way

    Just extract the main zip file the car does the rest. You should have two files and a syncmyride folder on the root of your USB. Doesn't matter if other stuff is present. It just reads the autoinstall file and that tells the car which files to use from the syncmyride folder.
  8. Update Sync 2 The Easy Way

    Nav seems to be a bit more responsive. But only listed changes I have seen are siri eyes free support and auto reconnect for phone pairing.

    Updated the Sync 2 software on my car today :)  
  10. Update Sync 2 The Easy Way

    Not in the EU that I am aware of.
  11. SYNC2 Touch / Updates

  12. After a lot of searching, reading and translating, I came across direct links to Ford servers hosting the official EU upgrade files for Sync 2. No need to sign up to the Ford India website, just download, extract to the root of a FAT32 formatted USB stick and away you go. I did use the Ford India website to determine which language pack matches to my VIN for use in the UK. It shouldn't really matter as all EU language packs include British English, but I get a bit OCD so wanted to know which one Ford would use. That turned out to be Language Pack 5. I have read that you may need a minimum of the F4 SD card or newer, however everyone with Sync 2 in the EU should have F4 following the recall (if you have Nav fitted). Here is the full list of the Oct 15 update, if you are not from the UK, but another EU country, you need to make sure you download the correct language pack to include the language you want to be able to speak (and have spoken) to the car in:   Language Pack 1 - German, English (British), Russian, Turkish:   Language Pack 2 - German, English (British), Polish, Russian:   Language Pack 3 - German, English (British), French, Italian:   Language Pack 4 - German, English (British), French, Swedish:   Language Pack 5 - English (British), Spanish, French, Portuguese: - This is the one I used   Language Pack 6 - German, English (British), French, Dutch:   US/NA Only (for our cousins across the pond):   Once you have downloaded and extracted the zip to the root of a USB drive (min 2GB formatted as FAT32), you need to remove all other USB sticks/devices from the ports on the car (Nav SD can be left in), then start the engine and turn off auto/stop start. Plug the USB in and it should auto detect the update files, then just follow the on screen instructions. You need to give yourself at least 30 mins for the update to install, in that time you can drive the car, but remember that anything normally displayed on the screen will not be available (rear view cam, sensor distance, etc.). Here are some before, during and after pics:   Big thanks to this post on focus fanatics for the url and available files.  
  13. It will suck in the hot air from under the engine. Hot air is less dense which means less oxygen for combustion.
  14. Thumping Knocking noise when turning left

    Are you sure it is not just the traction control? (assuming yours has it).
  15. SYNC2 Touch / Updates

    My only concern is if there are any customisations for the local market....
