  1. Nothing to report if it's just a rabbit, fox, badger, etc. I think you only have to report dogs, horses, etc. People's property basically. Not a lot you can do to avoid it sometimes. Not had it when driving myself but have been a passenger when hitting a rabbit on a NSL road.
  2. Only the maps are provided by TomTom. It is Ford's UI.
  3. Ah ok, just looked it up, seems only the econectic gets stop start on the Fiesta, I thought they all came with it as standard now. It would only have been relevant to indicate the battery level, but as you don't have it, we can't use that.
  4. If it is the 1.5 diesel, it should have stop/start afaik. When you stop the car and take it out of gear, the engine should stop. Then restart when you put your foot on the clutch. Do you have a small button in front of the gearstick with an A in a circle?
  5. I can't imagine them being much different tbh, it was only a facelift, with a new engine. Things like brakes must be the same surely?
  6. Any Ford dealer can get them for you. Fordpartsuk are usually pretty competitive, but shipping could be pricey on a set of alloys and not sure I'd trust them going through a courier network...
  7. I'd stick to a petrol if you are mostly around town. 1.0 is a great little engine and in 125 guide nets you the 6 speed gearbox. My mum has this combo in a Focus Estate and it's s hoot to drive, yet still can return reasonable MPG if you take it easy. Expect about 40-45mpg.
  8. Need to tag stoney in, I would but it crashes Firefox on android :(
  9. I think that's the one Clive has. I have one based off the same chassis. Important thing is that it's the A118C, the C being capacitor, much better than the battery version.
  10. Doubt you'll find many people wanting to sell them as they are an option. I imagine brand new from Ford is out of your budget?
  11. Is stop/start working? A low battery might cause them not to work, it might even say in the manual.
  12. Have you checked the fuses?
  13. How did you test it after you got home with the engine running?
  14. You can get superglue remover, but I'm thinking anything strong enough to remove superglue, could damage the lacquer and/or paint. Might be worth going to a local bodyshop and see what they think.
  15. Yeah just typical Ford 5 speed. No synchro on reverse. They still fit the same box to current Fiesta and Foci.
