  1. Depends on your definition of fun. I love the power of the Focus ST, but even a 1.0 Fiesta is more fun to fling around the twisties.
  2. The ST diesel will have better handling and be more responsive. If a Fiesta is big enough, then I'd say a 1.0 ST-Line might be better. The petrol Focus ST feels big and heavy compared to a Fiesta, the diesel Focus ST will be even more so.
  3. VW pepper grey is a good match to Ford rock metallic from what I've read.
  4. There could well be an outstanding field service action out on it. So they won't actively recall you, but the next time it is serviced by Ford, they'll apply the update.
  5. Actually just read this on Ford's website, which suggests it is possible on Sync 3.... Two phones can be paired to the system at the same time. One can be used for its phone features, and the other for its media.
  6. Do you mean easy fuel? You should have a filler funnel for emergency filling not from a pump.
  7. Should still have something logged, OP says it showed no error codes.
  8. If the EML has been triggered there will be a logged fault. You need something that can read the Ford codes, like Forscan as has been mentioned.
  9. Did you try clearing the DTCs before writing?
  10. It's the same with the 2.0 ecoboost, it's based on the NA 2.0 duratec. The 1.0 Ecooost is a totally from the ground up new engine though. Even the 1.5 ecoboost is an evolution (in some ways, not in others, lol), of the 1.6 ecoboost. Primarily just shortened the stroke and fit a water based intercooler to the intake.
  11. The problem is going to be the ECU, how you tell the engine is doesn't have a turbo any more.
  12. They're not completely different. While a lot changed, the 1.6 Ti-VCT provided the basis for the 1.6 ecoboost. Same bore x stroke. So while it wouldn't work in practice, theoretically a 1.6 ecoboost without the turbo and associated changes to support the turbo, is a 1.6 ti-vct (sigma) engine.
  13. It's to do with the charging system Ford use. A non-silver-calcium battery will be damaged and cause all sorts of electrical oddities.
  14. The 1.6 ecoboost is based on the 1.6 Ti-VCT anyway, so if you took off the turbo and re-programmed it, it would in theory run pretty much the same as the 125PS.
  15. I don't think it supports having to phones connected at the same time. You could maybe connect your personal phone in USB storage mode if it supports it, and playback music that way?
