  1. Happy Birthday orcomma!

  2. the mpg improves significantly following its first service when the ECU is reprogrammed to take into account the engine wear. mine went from about 55mpg to 62mpg within a day also, the 5 speed gearbox isnt best suited to the motorway - but then the fiesta isn't really designed to be a long distance cruiser. i find i get the same economy on the motorway or on the A roads, but the A roads are much more fun :)
  3. i love my 1.6 TDCi, mainly for the economy tho. also, if you buy it from a ford retail group dealer rather than a franchised one, in my experience, they treat you a bit better, in general was your last one from a FRG dealer?
  4. best kept to oneself but no, the tweeters wont go off if you put back speakers on, assuming you have the speakers to fit (you wouldnt put the back speakers on a tweeter feed anyway, as it wouldnt drive the bigger speakers)
  5. interesting how you have a fader option, what happens when you fade to rear, does the sound go off completely?
  6. i remember seeing halfords selling spinner wheel trims for about £40. perfect for your poverty spec 1 litre saxo
  7. they do on the roller phantom, they wobble tho - looks like a clicker on the wheel of a bus
  8. does look very snipery
  9. Welcome to the 'Titanium with Body Kit and 7 spoke wheels' Club!
  10. It's probably because you have the EATC on Auto, so the air conditioning is constantly going on and off. The fan is also used to cool the air conditioning condenser matrix which gets hot ("carries" the heat from the cabin to the condenser)
  11. welcome! expect 60+ mpg in the summer and 55 ish in the winter! :D remember to give it a motorway blast freuqently to clean the DPF
  12. any good garage should have a ford IDS (diagnostics) fault code reader. they will probably charge you labour for the diagnostics, and quote you on the issue. pay the labour for the diags and then decide whether to attempt the fix yourself or get a garage (not necessarily the same one that did the diags) to do it. that would be my port of call
  13. the PCM light can come on for a number of reasons, rather than presume it is the EGR valve, get it on a diagnostics machine to find out the fault code(s) and go from there
  14. interesting how nobody has mentioned the centura
  15. Does it display tracks? I thought only the S displays the artist/track etc over bluetooth... I don't have an iPhone to try it for myself - I personally use a Windows phone which even reads aloud text messages and allows you to dictate a reply - so I was basing it on what I have heard
