  1. Hi I have a 2011 Titanium S-Max, I have noticed both side lights are not coming on, the DRL's dim though when you turn the dial to the side lights. The dipped lights and main beam all work fine, rear lights all work fine, brake and reversing as well. Could this be a fuse issue?
  2. Hi everyone, bigger family now so looking to upgrade to a Grand C-Max or really we would prefer an S-Max. I have been looking ideally at the 2.0 or 2.2 diesel S-Max, and the Titanium package, can people advise me on potential issues areas I should look for when looking at 2nd hand S-Max's? Also is there much difference between the 2.0 and 2.2? is the larger engine that much better or is there little difference between the two?
  3. Hi I am looking to get either an S-Max or Grand C-Max but I have read very bad reviews on the fuel economy of the C-max. Can people please advise me on how good/bad the actual MPG is, I would probably look to get the 2.0 diesel version or the 1.6 diesel. Thanks in advance, I just want as much info as possible before I make a choice or either of these cars.
  4. Hi peeps, Would a jack, tow eye and wheel brace from a 2006 Fez be ok for a 2011 model?
  5. looks like my old mans, he completely refurbed his, it's a beautiful car.
  6. I do a mix of dual carriage way and town driving and my manual average is 47 thats on a 1.4 Zetec Petrol, 38 sounds decent for an auto. Also hope the op gets this resolved, and if it's faulty wiring please let us know... My Fez is by far the best car I have ever owned, and quite fun for a 1.4, would hate to see it expire on a wiring issue!!
  7. I need to speak with Ford as I have a massive amount of lacquer peeling on the roof.
  8. No one beats BMW, I have had numerous guys do stupid things, most recent is being overtaken at traffic lights, I moved and he overtook me forcing me to pull in and brake, at the next lights I rolled the windows down and asked "why" I was treated with pretty much every insult under the sun. My only tangle with a Vauxhall, a guy pulling out in front of me from a side road, I honked so he brake tested me, nice guy, so I hung back and let him move off, a few miles later and I was overtaking some cars in the 2nd lane when one darted out to almost bash sides ( is was the same guy ) I swerved away to avoid skidded slightly then suffered a blow out, lost control and hit a crash barrier in excess of 60mph, the Vauxhall driver had the courtesy to slow down, and give my brother the middle finger as he climbed out my wrecked car, so I have a special place in my heart for contempt of Astra drivers.. Traffic police initially blamed me, I had collected another car during the spin, but after they measured the data from the cars they said I was not to blame, they never went after the other car, and my insurance had to pay for all damages, first time driving was 3 months later and the same idiot overtook me and 3 other cars by crossing a double white line and the wrong side of a traffic island putting all our necks on the block, he is known for being a utter idiot it seems, I never use that stretch of road now, my car was an utter write off, and it was a limited edition VW Golf..
  9. I thought the engine temp was only displayed when its in maintenance mode, when you restart the car again I am pretty sure it goes back to default. Unless yours is a 12 plate and the temps now displayed as a default?
  10. I had some issues, but then found a USB that I could remove all other files from, I made sure the files were not held within a root file (the files were not in a folder) and it worked fine.
  11. Mines fitted as well now! No pics yet as: A: Car's filthy proper disgrace. B: Having issues with the middle top clip/hook and the one to the right of it so it's not sitting perfect yet.
  12. lol sorry Bunny looks like our cars are gonna be almost twins! lol
  13. Love it mate. Can the old number plate be salvaged? I assume it's just some self tapping screws to fit it?
  14. cheers Bunny and Len, I will pm iNath as well ;) looking forward to seeing the pics as well, my Zetec is pretty much factory standard but I think it would look ok. Can the chrome trim be re-fitted from the standard grille to Asian one?
  15. You guys getting these from ebay? cheapest I found was £79 :(
