  1. Ecoboost / Econetic

    My June 2013 Titanium 125 has the Econetic badge. As stated above the Ecoboost badge wasn't put on until towards end of 2013.
  2. For a UK spec 2013 Titanium X Puddle lights - standard Rear view camera - Option (standard for later models)
  3. Fiesta starts too quickly!

    Sounds like either the helix gear on the starter motor is sticking / damaged - or worse case the flywheel gear teeth are damaged. I think it will need the starter motor removing for a proper diagnosis.
  4. Probably a smart repair would work for this - someone like Chipsaway would sort it.
  5. Boiling coolant?

    The pipe shown is the feed back to the coolant reservoir from the turbo. I think its quite normal to have some flow back for a while whilst the engine cools.
  6. 1L EcoBoost 125/140PS Real World MPG?

    I do a 40 mile round trip commute daily with similar road types as above. My 125PS Titanium averages around 48 MPG if I don't boot it too much.
  7. New Fiesta ST200 Announced

    197 BHP = 199.7 PS So I guess the 200 refers to PS.
  8. Looks quite nice :-) Autocar Link
  9. ESP ???

    This is not the case. My previous car was an 09 plate MK 7 Titanium and it did not have ESP. ESP became standard sometime after 2009. Edit - Just checked online. ESP became standard on cars built after 26th April 2010.
  10. Washing car with water fed brush.

    I do the same. The older you get the more transient and less important cars become. You get a different one every few years and at the end of the day you have to drive it which invariably causes small damage no matter how careful you are. When I was a young man I spent hours washing and polishing. Not any more. Lets face it - it will most likely end up in the scrap yard in a decade or so anyway. life is too short! :-)
  11. Annoying Issue With Rear Brake Lights

    The combined tail / brake lights bulbs have 3 metal prongs that stick out on the side of the bulb earth. It is possible to put the bulb in incorrectly which can cause all sorts of strange things to happen. I would first remove the bulb and then carefully check which way around it goes in. One of the prongs is higher than the others which should match the socket.
  12. Gap Insurance

    I got mine through the dealer but negotiated the price down to £165.00 which I didn't think was too bad for 3 years.
  13. Sounds like some kind of breather pipe?
  14. Where Do You Put Yours? (Dashcams! ;) )

    Mine is sited to the left and below the rear view mirror. Top of camera is in line with bottom of mirror. My car has auto lights, wipers and active city stop so there is a large black box behind the mirror to house all the sensors. Camera does not obscure vision and is within the wiper sweep. For info camera is a Nextbase 402g hard wired into the fuse box with a piggy back on the rear wiper circuit using a flying 12 v socket, all hidden behind the glove box..
  15. Climate Control...do You Use It?

    I love my heated seats in really cold weather too. Full leather tends to get really cold so the heated seat goes on straight away on full heat. After a couple of miles I switch it off once the car is up to temperature.
