  1. Depends how bright you want them. I find that I prefer the mood lighting rather than the glaring brightness. The 5 led ones are plenty good enough for the not so young like us. Also these LEDs just plug in, don't need any fixing or messing around. Don't forget that LEDs are polarity sensative,
  2. I was thinking more like these.
  3. You need multi facet CREE or COB fittings,
  4. You used to be able to buy conductive paint to repair the elements in rear heated screens. You painted it on to the element with a fine brush to remake the circuit. Don't know if its still available.
  5. Yes, I think thats true. The charts are not working as they should. The link appears to be the same as all the others on ebay. All the prices are comparable.
  6. The write up shows that they are the right ones, even though the compatability chart says that they aren't. Looks right and the same as all the other on ebay. They only come in dark tint so they cause a blind spot between the mirrow and door gap.
  8. The compaibility guide says that they are NOT compatible for a 2014 festa. They are not like any deflectors that I have seen for Festas.
  9. Top of Fiesta forum page------ sub categories. Fiesta parts for sale.------
  10. I had a 08 plate 1.6 TDI Sport van, Fantastic performance, no problems with it all. Only went because the car was £20 VED abnd the van. exactly the same animal was £220 VED. Drove it full steam all the time, can't tell you the mpg. It never bothers me. I can't believe that people pick a car for the mpg over another a bit lowerr.
  11. Nothing is thiefproof. as you say if they want it they will get it. It's your job to make it as difficult as possible so they will look elsewhere. It takes more than a few seconds to remove a Disklok, even with a battery disc cutter. There is a utube video from a Landrover Dfender site showing this and it's not as easy as you think. But with a Disklok they cannot tow your car away. The steering lock is not infallable, easily broken. The perimeter alarm is disabled when they unlock your door. Cars are stolen every day. To start the car they need access to the OBD port (unless you have keyless start, worst idea possible) Secure the OBD port, you never need access to it on a daily basis.. That only leaves towing. loading onto a trailer or lifitng. Apart from chaining down not much you can do about it, But at least you have tried and won't be alarmed when you get up in the morning. or see you car being driven away at 1 o/c in the morning., and all the hassle of personal property , increased premiums and being carless.
  12. Yes I do have one fitted. The cost to buy is £125, £165 fitted. Well made and "Sold Secure" from Thatcham. You can fit it yourself, around 30 minutes if they send the correct instructions and you have done a course in gynacology. They will never break in to it. Its made from drawn steel. The photo on this listing is not how it looks when fitted to the vehicle.
  14. LEDs are polarity sensitive, Pos must go to pos. Turn the bulb through 180 degrees.
