  1. Mine came today, can't complain for £12, but any ideas on these screw in clips? Yes mine is a 2009 and i ordered the 2008 - 2011 mats :) Don't tell me i need one of those kits to actually fit it..
  2. Can't complain for £11 and next working day delivery - ordered thanks.
  3. Look on autotrader, get a few prices for the same car with similar miles and age, if they offer you well below, refuse it! You don't have to take their first offer, just have to say why you should get more and give examples. i.e. here's one i found similar, with leather interior http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201245491588260
  4. Just thought i'd chip in - if you have ad block installed, you can right mouse click the banner and click "Block this ad". It will give you a slider that you move along until the banner disappears! It would be fine if it remembered to keep it hidden but I was having to do it on every page!
  5. Is the gearbox issue when going from 1st to 2nd or from 2nd to 1st? If im doing above 10-15mph mine doesn't seem to let me put the car from anything into first gear, i assumed this was just by design though.
  6. Not sure if anyone has already mentioned this - but if you have an on-window phone mount, why not something like this? http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/witness-driving/id437813388?mt=8 (Probably something similar for android users too) Records as you go, delete as required.
  7. I'm coming up to my first major service, which thanks to Evans Halshaw, is out of warranty (They seem to have given the car 3 minor services over 2.5 years because it was serviced when i bought it 2nd hand). As it's out of warranty, is there any reason why you should pay ford money for a major service, or would a normal service center be able to do exactly the same, and still give you a stamp for the logbook?
  8. Can't tell you which ones I'd advise that you should buy, but I bought Bosch ones 6 months ago, (AM26U and AM15U) for about £25 delivered and they're been pretty sub-average, bit streaky at times, especially when it's only raining lightly, and i've had to wipe the blades down quite a few times. No Juddering though. I'd be interested if the Valeo or Chamption twin pack from this page are worth the extra money?
  9. I've got a set of these bulbs, any idea if they are legal for the number plate bulbs? Just standard 501 LED's, says ok for number plates on the listing. Thanks
  10. I'd look out for potholes :D On a serious note, you'll know if your wheels have buckled, not sure if there's much to look for otherwise, even if your wheel has slightly buckled i'd imagine it will need some serious repair/a new wheel...
  11. Funny you should say that i was just looking for one in a set i have, and nope, skips right from 6mm to 8mm. Thanks for the heads up
  12. http://www.scribd.com/doc/8204594/Ford-Fiesta-19952001-Zetec-Wiring-Diagram-Petrol-and-Diesel any help there?
  13. What did they do to it when you left it with them? Mine is no longer under warranty as of earlier this year typically - had no other problems with the car though. Also - thanks Stef, have plenty have allen keys but that will save me trying every other one before 7mm!
  14. Cheers i'll do that then and come back with how i get on after the weekend!
  15. Yes i pulled up earlier after a 30 minute drive and noticed the N/S disc felt to be giving off a lot more heat than the O/S. I can jack the car up on the drive and have a clean or do you mean brake hard enough to cause the squeal and then jack the car up immediately after stopping to see if its stuck?
