  1. Fitting dashcam to new fiesta

    It is easy to wire in a dash cam. The wiring can be pushed up under the edge of the roof lining, down behind the "A" pillar cover .through a hole in the side of the dash to he fuse board behind the glove box. A rear camera can be wired the same way. The hard part is finding which fuse to wire them to. An auto electrician will charge about £35 for each camera if you take the car to them.
  2. Alloy wheels

    Because rhe wheels are free to move independant of each other, when turning the inside wheels travel less distance than the outside wheels. If they didn't then you would only travel in straight lines.
  3. Fiesta "aero foil" front bumper.

    I saw this when scrolling down , the ad for the discount states 20% of RRP. the RRp is £44.07. take off 20% add posatage and there you have it, Its 20% of RRp not the discounted price. Bit of a con but quite common on a lot of these sites. You have to read every detail and think whats the catch and not go for the buy now button.
  4. 4x100

    It's all apersonal choice. One person's opinion may not be someone else's. If they are what you want, they are the right fitment, and in your price range then go for it. People cannot make decisions for you but it will save you spraying your wheels black and if you are really happy you can sell your original wheels.
  5. Battery charger

    After you give it a good blast and the battery is topped up, does the stop go kick in? If it doesn't then I would think that its not the battery at fault., but sonething else connected to the stop go switching.
  6. 4x100

    I would think that the short answer is NO. Different pcd. You could buy adaptors but will increase your track and really is it worth the cost, Find a set of wheels with the correct pcd and offset.
  7. Re-mapping Red edition?

    With Bluefin you can remove the remap and replace with the oem map. If you have the map done on a rolling road then its fixed and you cannot remove it yourself. All this is expalained on their website and people should refer to the manufactors write ups and not post iffy comments of which they have no knowledge or facts. It may throw someone down the wrong path. If someone has personal knowledge then they have a valid opinion.
  8. Zetec s Valance

    As Iam2deck says, The bumper extensions are around £90 a pair. plus painting and fitting if you cannot do it your self. If you can find an undamaged rear bumper cheaper that that, then thats the way to go.
  9. Just cut rhem out with a hole cutter. Remove them from your ls diffused and replace in the new one.
  10. drl's mk7/7.5 fiesta

    By law all cars built after 2011 have to have DRLS. If you turn them off it may be seen as a lighting fault.
  11. Re-mapping Red edition?

    Thats fortunate, I purchased it just days ago but from Demon Tweeks..who are still adverising more han 10 available with free filter on Ebay.
  12. Fitting Metal/S1600 exhaust to Zetec S

    Try an exhaust fitting shop or Ford parts. I would think that you'd need a better seal than squirty goo.
  13. My new red edition

    Get a Bluefin and you can remove the remap and put it back to standard .
  14. Re-mapping Red edition?

    Superchips, Bluefin do an ecu remap which is removable if you want to do so and reload again. Presently they are offering this with the VAT paid. so around £332. Demon Tweeks are also adding a K & N free flow filter worth £41 , making this remap about £290. As "ARRONWRS " says, you can definately feel the extra horses and torque. I was suprised. Superchips say that the MPG is not increased and they will cover any warranty issues with any issues with the egine caused by thie remap. If you are thinking of a remap and have £300 you have nothing to lose. try it and see and be suprised.. There are plenty of posters on here who have taken this route. Havent seen any adverse comments yet.
  15. Spark Plugs

    If its the same model and engine, they may well do. Check out the plug manufactorers comparsion site, or maybe Halfords.
