  1. That's the Focus Black edition, same as your Fiesta. They've sold them for a few months now.
  2. Around 90deg C is the usual coolant temp the ecu aims to keep the car at. Anything over about 50-60 is too hot touch.
  3. Great place to come and say
  4. This is why all our premiums keep going up.
  5. IF it gets written off they will pay you what they feel it is worth (market value). Sometimes there is room for negotiation, as you only have 3rd party I don't know if you can get any help from your own insurer. Worth asking though, if they haven't told you already. I assume you have reported it to your insurance?
  6. Wouldn't surprise me if that is going to be a write off :(
  7. Has the MOT actually expired yet?
  8. Ouch. :( I'm surprised there is not more damage if you think they were going that fast.....? Crash bar behind bumper must be damaged for that speed, can you open boot? I'd check for creases in boot floor under carpet. If they admit liability then their insurance should pay for repairs. If not then you're not covered for damage to your own car with 3rd party.
  9. Unless it is a misbuild, it must just be a different spec for Ireland.
  10. It won't include spark plugs as there aren't any on a diesel engine. Service schedule should tell you how often it needs a major service, normally every 2 or 3 years, depending on engine. Which one it needs next will also depend on what it had at the last service. Don't forget brake fluid should be done every other year too.
  11. Just checked mirocat, bluetooth is definitely a separate module:
  12. Afaik, the bluetooth module is separate on these models. At least is was on the Focus. So normally if you press the phone buttons with no bluetooth module connected it just mutes the audio and nothing else.
  13. It will support bluetooth, but I believe the module is separate,
  14. The only way to add a line in jack would be to replace the module with one that includes it. It would probably need programming in to. Otherwise what about using bluetooth audio, or an FM transmitter?
  15. Are you sure? I'm certain mine has one in the arm rest. Can't check till 5:30pm though. EDIT: Just seen you are from Dublin, perhaps the Irish spec omits the line-in? Not sure why though.... Have you tried plugging it in via USB?
