  1. I had this problem as well - it would randomly unlatch while I was driving along. After a while it seized up completely and the boot wouldn't open! Got it replaced under warranty just before it ran out.
  2. Arnold Clark seem to offer £1000 off list price; http://www.arnoldclark.com/new-cars/ford/fiesta/1.6t-st-2-ecoboost-182-ps/brand-new-63-plate/ref/blk_y7kbvcmm5ioy8bfd/
  3. Seems a common problem. Try spraying them with some WD-40 now & again to keep the rust at bay!
  4. Looking good Paul - what bulbs did you use? I've just put some 4 x LEDs in mine but they look rubbish!
  5. Credit to Arnold Clark, the service was excellent! Drums rule!
  6. Took my car in a few weeks ago to have the brakes looked at. Wasn't expecting much but they confirmed a fault, bred all the brakes & adjusted rear brake shoes - brakes are much better now! ;)
  7. My car's going back to the dealers next week with brake issues - play in the brake pedal & occasional brake squeal.
  8. The sixth generation is known as Mark VII in the United Kingdom. http://en.wikipedia....n_.282008_on.29
  9. Was told by a mechanic mate that premium tyres aren't worth the money so when for some Hankook Ventus Evos (£75 each). They seem slightly softer than the Bridgestones - or maybe its because I've now got some tread! ;)
  10. And here's mine (a lot cleaner than it usually is!):
  11. When I was looking at a DS3 last year, its was £740 for metallic paint! I assume thats why most DS3s are white!
  12. Kris, If you're looking for a small 60ps petrol commuting car, have you considered a Citroen C1/Peugeot 107/Toyota Aygo? Granted it's a bit basic but it'll do at least 50mpg!
  13. I'd imagine the 60ps version would be painfully slow - the 82ps version seems more adequate. Both versions may require a bit of trashing which obviously isn't good for fuel economy!
  14. Only if its Forest Fresh! ;)
