  1. Parking sensors, Cameras and Insurance

    You’ve got to think like a perverse underwriter so will Probably go up cause the repairs will cost more if you have a bump Sent from my iPhone

    The head gasket issues were mainly on early models mine was a November build and so far so good at 11k miles not using oil or water. Handling is everything you’ve heard sticks like s h it round corners irrespective of how fast or sharp they are. The ride is firm but far better than the fiesta st unless you use the track mode for suspension which is back breaking on normal roads. Performance is awesome you won’t be disappointed. The only downside is fuel consumption don’t expect anything over 30 even on a long run. Mostly around mid 20’s but lower when in sport mode so get a shell loyalty card and a large credit card balance but let’s be fair your not going to buy one for fuel efficiency are you Sent from my iPhone

    Yes Dan I’ve got some leather cleaners and protection products that will definitely be getting used far more than ever before Sent from my iPhone
  4. Headlight bulb upgrade

    I get dazzled by misaligned halogen headlights more often than HIDs or LEDs. As long as they are installed in projectors and correctly adjusted i doubt there’s anything the police would do Sent from my iPhone
  5. Headlight bulb upgrade

    I tried 6000k and 5000k HIDs and the 5s we’re far better. If you don’t want HIDs what about LEDs CEUK seem pretty good my son and daughter both have them Sent from my iPhone
  6. Which tyres?

    I’d stick with what you have for now run them down to 2mm the mileage you’re doing should see you past the new year and you’ll have a better idea if you’re then likely to stick or change. If you’re keeping it I always put conti sport 5 on my ST best tyres I had by a mile in all weather they never let go Sent from my iPhone

    I did point out my brand loyalty in my complaint and they had that confirmed by the dealer who I’ve bought my last 3 new cars from as well as family purchasers Sent from my iPhone
  8. Auto Lock on 2016 model

    I’ve read somewhere that there’s a guy who can enable this but can’t for the life of me remember where Sent from my iPhone

    So update on my seat issues Ford warranty declined to repair stating that this is “normal wear and tear “. Seriously can you believe that? So I wrote to Ford customer services expressing my dissatisfaction in rather strong but polite terms that Ford find this acceptable after such a short time on their prestige model. Yesterday I got a phone call to tell me that they are going to replace the whole seat [emoji575] Sent from my iPhone
  10. RS Owners check this out :/

    It’s been a problem mainly with early cars. First sign is low coolant level. I check mine regularly and so far no sign of it. Ford redesigned the block to solve this. I suspect that car is an early one with low mileage. Check out this video of Fezza when his went Sent from my iPhone
