  1. A few more questions for you all

    Actually I read that wrong. I read it as interior A and B pillars. If it's the bits on the outside of the car then work away. They are perfect surface for wrapping :) Sent from my SM-T810 using Tapatalk
  2. A few more questions for you all

    Cheers@Phil21185 I'm pretty sure the A and B pillars, being textured, won't be able to be wrapped. The surface needs to be smooth and almost glossy. 99% sure it won't work. On the other hand, the head unit surround, gearstick surround and door grab handlesncan all be wrapped. I have done this on my car with carbon fibre effect. Sent from my SM-T810 using Tapatalk

    You amuse me lol A breath of fresh air you are Phil. Me? I'm a grumpy *****. I stand naked cursing at the sky for bringing rain, beer in one hand, FOC in the other, hoping that one day I'll get good weather to finish the things need doing on my car :)

    Looking good with the led upgrade. Did you do the indicators as well ?

    Aye I'm well pleased, was thinking the worst tbh. Don't know what to do about the knocking though. Anyways looks like I won't get test driving the Mondeo now. We had flights booked to go from Belfast to Manchester tonight but easyJet cancelled the outbound flight at the last minute. So a huge panic and mad rush got us flights from Dublin !! Which, probably shouldn't mention, allowed me to get the focus up to 115 (k)mph. And was still climbing too. So yea I won't be back in time to tests drive the car thanks to easyjets. Anyways, I've just landed in manchester 2mins ago so going for a pint and then off to the united match tomorrow night.

    Thanks for that lol Yea I'll have a look and see the car first and how it drives. I'll worry about the finer details later. On another note, car passed MOT with no advisories. Even with Osram Hyper Blues in headlights, led sidelights, knocky suspension and borderline legal tyres lol Wife's car also passed no problem. That's two less things to worry about now.

    My uncle has one of the first versions of the mk4 and he swears by his. It's a 2.0 diesel though and I don't think it has much 'poke' but from what I can see he has had not one bit of bother with his and that's through well over 6 years of ownership. He does say that front tyres go quicker than usual due to the engine being so heavy but then again that could just be in the diesel version. Another thing was a door locking mechanism failed but that's it. Oh. I was under the impression the engine are the same but I know for sure the fuel and exhaust systems are different. Hence why the Focus comes with that extra 15bhp. I'm excited to try the power shift though. From what I've been reading (at work, all day, instead of actually working) it seems to be quite enjoyable/comfortable. With the option of using S/Sport mode makes me think maybe I wouldn't miss how involved a manual is i.e.. using the clutch. Push up for downshift and pull back for upshift. Imagine all that power being so effortless to use? Plus, now Superchips are doing a remap for the 240 mondeo. Up to nearly 270 I think! Hmm, Through reading what little information there is on the reverse camera for these cars it seems that yes there is a module in the boot area that houses the appropriate wiring/connections for the reverse camera. the head unit should have 4 Fakra connections: black/white/blue and a beige/cream one higher up, this is for the reverse camera. It has been mentioned that all the facelift Mondeos (MK4.5) have the connections for the reverse camera if the unit came with satnav so it would just be a case of buying the camera and plugging it in but again, I don't know how much truth there is to that. Would be interesting if the dealer where I'm going would let me see behind the head unit lol I doubt it though.
