  1. That's not what necessarily happens to your car once it's written off by an insurance company, 9 times out of 10 it will end up being bought by a salvage yard who will get it repaired and sell it on as a category write off, which is why you should always check a cars history before buying it. I happen to know for certain that the car I mentioned previously which was written off is now fixed and back on the road, I know this because I have checked its mot and tax history and it's been mot'd and taxed three times since it was written off.
  2. I paid 3500 for the car and only had it for for about 6weeks before the accident, the insurance company offered 2900 which I quickly refused explaining what I paid only weeks earlier, they then increased their offer to 3250 which I was happy with. Yes they did give me the chance to buy the car back.
  3. Unfortunately I think they will write it off, my previous car was 9 years old and the insurance approved garage I took it to said it's beyond economical repair, the damage on the car was all on the front passenger side..... bumper headlight, wing and bonnet, it really didn't look too bad to me so was devastated when I learned it's fate.
  4. You will also have to have decent soldering skills as the smd's are tiny (about 3-4mm x 2-3mm)
  5. It's not standard dome type led's that's in the dash, it's ones similar to these...... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/201382160264 They have a little groove on one side to determine between live and negative sides
  6. There's a guide on here by dangersford fitting a Lockwood dial kit...... http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/tutorials/article/41-fitting-a-lockwood-dial-kit-fiesta-mk-6/
  7. What I mean is after I fit the centre console (as in the part I started this thread for) what else must I fit to allow everything to fit securely?
  8. What is the minimum I can get away with? (so I can get the centre console with cup holders fitted? until a can source all the parts?
  9. So I need the gloss black climate control panel, plastic gear surround and the gear gaiter? (Does the gaiter come with the gear stick too)? Or can I just use my own gearstick?
  10. And this.....
  11. Oh, glad you uploaded that pic, I have just taken delivery of the centre console, and was about to go out and fit it, I will have to hold off until I get the other bits that it attaches to, Is the following pic what i need?
  12. Here's mine just now.....
  13. Thanks for the info Yunii, you're before pic is exactly how mine is at the moment, and your after pics is how I would like it to end up, great to know the gloss black dash and gear stick surround fits straight on. Was there much involved on wiring up the rear 12v socket and the cup holder ambients?
  14. Definitely do'able as I retrofitted heated seats into my corsa, however might not be as easy in the fez - I'm not really familiar on how to program stuff in yet
  15. What seats have you ordered? Are they heated? My console should be here through the week so will hopefully get time to do them next weekend. I'm going to try and wire in the cup holder ambient lights too
