  1. I used to quite like Aldi, until the fiasco with alcohol and my ID, but I won't go into that... Basically, they refused to accept my driving licence unless I had the counterpart, which is no longer even valid!! Morons, the lot of them. At least, in Elgin anyway. As you say, the counterpart is void. I've consigned mine to the shredder. Seeing as a full licence is accepted as a legal proof of I.D and age they were fully in the wrong. Sent from my SM-G930F
  2. I like that last night i wound an Astra driver up so much that he stalled. At lights, crappy Astra with ASBO exhaust, multi-coloured LED's all over the inside and stripes pulls up alongside. He revs a lot hoping for a bit of Street Outlaw action. I look across and laugh so hard my sides hurt. I notice he has his windows down, as I drive with drivers window down on city streets he has heard the raucous laughing emanating ffrom my car. He looks very hurt and fluffs his clutch bite pulling away. Cue much more laughter as I cruise away in a leisurely manner. Me = Happy Bunny
  3. You could fit the standard AUX socket which tbh is rubbish, too much movement in the socket parts cause crossed channels and loss of sound. Standard kit is Ford part (finis) code 1426121- An option I had on my MK2 which works much better is to fit a socket into the demister switch panel- The USB is technically defunct as the standard Ford Visteon radios do not have an USB socket but you can make the USB into a handy charging port for phones, gps or dashcams. My guide on how to do this- I manufacture the 12v power supply piggyback sockets to order if you fancy one or someone has started making and selling them on ebay too (although I am biased to say that mine are more professional and tidy) -
  4. Try Forscan with the advanced licence. Sent from my SM-G930F
  5. No luck at all there Fella. Hopefully it's back to top form soon.
  6. What needs to be considered here is that antenna lengths are matched to the frequency range. If you reduce the length you effectively detune the antenna from the reception range of the radio. If you want a shorter antenna you need one that has internally coiled wire that matches the required reception range. Just fitting a shorter straight wire will produce poor reception. Using an amplifier on a bad signal will merely amplify the error. It's better to have a weak/good signal than a strong/bad signal. Sent from my SM-G930F
  7. That's what we're here for 😎 Sent from my SM-G930F
  8. Another option to quickly add Bluetooth operability with a remote control-
  9. The AUX is play only, no controls for any devices I'm afraid. An inline controller would work. This sort of thing-
  10. Sounds like the bonnet sensor is malfunctioning. Try blasting around the lock mechanism with WD40. Other option is to splice the sensor wires together to bypass the switch but on a 2016 car should not be necessary. Your dealer would also be unlikely to touch the problem if you alter the wiring yourself.
  11. Indeed. The bulb holders are different. They are rare to get hold of but I do have a pair I obtained when planning the same project on my old mk2. Project binned when I instead chopped it in for my ST. These are my MK2.5 holders, they lock around the outside of the lens housing- This is the ones on the MK1/1.5 and Mk2 Focus, they lock inside the lens housing-
  12. Rear bumper (of course). Reverse and fog lights. Facelift fog/reverse bulb holders as the holders are different to the mk2 ones. I have a pair sat around somewhere if you need them, they are hard to come by. Everything else is a straight swap.
  13. The last line starting with V is the serial needed to request the code. Codes are only available from someone with access to the Ford Service database or a Dealership.
  14. Not compatible I'm afraid. You may be lucky enough to get auto lights but no guarantee. Dimmer unit without auto headlights- Dimmer unit with auto headlights-
