  1. What engine is in his? My dad has a 140 PS Zetec S, so mechanically identical to the black/red. Only differences are cosmetic.
  2. The 2017 (2018 MY) Fiesta is still using the same chassis so shouldn't be significantly different in driving position to the current one. If anything I find the current Fiesta too upright and I'm hoping with them using focus based seat frames on the new one, it'll actually have a lower driving position.
  3. The language pack affects the voice control languages. Not the on screen language.
  4. I'll have to check later, I haven't noticed if it's any different.
  5. My reversing camera never mute the radio before I updated, it's only when the sensors start beeping that it does.
  6. The new software update for SYNC with MyFord Touch systems includes all the improvements from previous updates, plus additional changes to accommodate new and updated customer devices, such as: Hazard switch illuminates on Focus / Escape with ignition off and park lamps on Next Track / Previous Track controls from SYNC touchscreen SYNC Maintaining Repeat / Shuffle settings that were set on the device side Compatibility updates for the latest phone and media devices
  7. I updated from 3.08.15128 from the first post.
  8. It's all online now. :)
  9. Fixed the formatting for you, can't watch vid at the mo. When the DMF failed on my Mk1 1.8 TDCi it would rattle with the clutch depressed iirc, sounds like lots of loose bits moving around.
  10. They are using it as an excuse. It's the cat which creates the back pressure so anything cat back is just carrying the exhaust and making some noise. If it had damaged something under the car, then fine not under warranty. But it's not going to write the engine off. I'd be going down the legal route. Ideally you need an independent report from an "expert" I.e. a mechanic to confirm at the very least your exhaust would not have caused the failure. Serve that to them and say you'll pursue your statutory rights under consumer rights act. If any part of the car over £100 was paid for on credit you also have section 75 protection from the consumer credit act you can pursue.
  11. Cat back shouldn't affect the warranty, unless you replaced the cat too?
  12. I've only seen it happen after an update, or when the power is cut to the sync module.
  13. Yep.
  14. Any metal screw should do it.
  15. Bulbs don't matter, air filter shouldn't matter, just ask them not to change it, or they could throw it away and replace it with a paper one. What other bits? They don't generally care at a service to be honest, as long as it is not obviously damaging something.
