  1. Mk3.5 ST is only a digital symposer in EU. US MK3.5 ST is still the pipe. The digital symposer is actually a lot more natural, can't tell it's from speakers.
  2. Just seen this too: If they can produce a 5 dr Fiesta ST, with 200 PS 1.0 Ecoboost, 6 speed box and better ride than the Mk7, I'll be all over it. Could time in quite well for the end of my PCP deal on the Focus. As much as I love the Focus, I only need something Fiesta size, but I wanted 5 doors and the better refinement and interior build. All of which could be on the Mk8....
  3. Looks like no illuminated sill plates on the 5dr ST, how rude! Might have to keep the Focus, haha.
  4. You'll need a different starter and battery for stop start. I wouldn't try adding it to a car that doesn't come with it from the factory. Forscan definitely the best thing to try and diagnose a fault outside of IDS.
  5. It needs to go to a garage.
  6. So no resistance on clutch? Must have got stuck disengaged.
  7. Pics here:
  8. That's probably why Ford say it doesn't have it then, lol.
  9. Sync 2 does NOT have applink in the UK/EU. That will be US spec.
  10. No, it will only be Sync 2. You used to have to spec the Sat Nav to get Sync 2, but I think it became standard earlier in the year. Sync 3 is only on cars being built from around now.
  11. Do the gears grind or does it just feel stuck in neutral? If gears are grinding it's probably clutch, if stuck in neutral, might just be the connecting rods have popped off. How old is the car?
  12. Excellent news, they're already sold in the states like this. If they follow suit with the next Fiesta it'll definitely be on my short list for the next car.
  13. I used 87 which is the one for heated steering on mine. 85 should work fine too. OBD is always live so wouldn't switch off with ignition. It's really easy with a fuse tap.
  14. Shouldn't say that every time. I only get it every now and then. Might need diagnostics plugged in to find out why.
  15. I'd go for the ST airbox or the mountune kit if it was me. The latter does not affect your warranty either. :)
