  1. superglue? Might affect light output though.
  2. They are normally posted out a week before.
  3. They haven't made the mats any longer, they just added protection to the carpet instead on newer Foci.
  4. V6 will just be updated maps. (new roads, etc). Same provider, same software.
  5. Have you got active city stop?
  6. You'll have to pay him to come and put stock map back on, that's if he is still in business and is able to do it. The difference with bluefin is that it stores your original map on the handset, so you can easily put back the stock map whenever you want, such as before each service.
  7. It is used for both afaik.
  8. The light sensor is the little dome on the dash at the bottom of the windscreen.
  9. I can only think of GPS and the rain sensor behind the mirror on the Fiesta. GPS can be covered by something thin like a sunstrip as long as there is nothing metal in it to block the signals. Rain sensor must be left uncovered to work though.
  10. There will be tolerances built in but I doubt the box will do 100k without issues having that much torque put through it. Especially if the map has removed torque limits in low gears. It really depends how many miles you do and how long you'll keep the car if it's an issue. It could in theory de value the car too. Got to remember that when Ford ship a car it should be good for at least 100k. So anything you do to push the performance effectively eats away at that longevity. That's why f1 engines can get all that power from a 1.6, they use half a dozen engines per year.
  11. It depends on the insurer. Most are only 30 days, but some do up to 60.
  12. Anything else you'd want to enable that your car hasn't already got fitted.
  13. Deflation Detection System. It uses the ABS sensors to monitor the rolling circumference of the tyre and detect if it is going down. Not as accurate as proper valve pressure sensors (TPMS), but still might alert you to a problem before you can feel it.
  14. It's 170 all the time with 200 on overboost for the 125. Or 180 all the time with 210 overboost for the 140. Says so in Ford's literature for the Fiesta :)
