  1. id try and have a test drive in another similar fiesta thats been lowered first, my previous car was a focus which i had lowered with eibach springs . worst thing i did with the state of the roads where i live the ride was terrible , did look good tho.
  2. buy osram or philips , the cheap ones are not very bright as the silver coating is too thick i bought these then binned them and bought philips , much better.
  3. i was looking at buying one of these for my 2011 zetec it is a non bluetooth model , glad i read this dont think ill bother now.
  4. fiesta 2011 zetec 1.25 petrol , just gone from cardiff to liverpool and back on a full tank approx 350 miles on a £48 tank
  5. just got one one ebay £42 including postage. :)
  6. i thought the same i had a 2003 1.6 focus , my mrs recently passed her test and learned in a fiesta , she didnt like driving the focus so i sold it and reluctantly bought a 2011 fiesta zetec 1.25, i love it now. i was going for a 1.4 diesel but a mechanic friend said the1.25(82) zetec was a better car .
  7. i fitted rear speakers got some new pioneer ones off ebay they came with the correct adaptors to fit the hole , the problem you will have is if you only got front ones fitted, to get the rears working you will have to get your ecu programed , a nice fella called nath on here did mine along with my power fold mirrors i fitted , http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Fiesta-Speaker-Replacement-Kit-Pioneer-2008-/111038688152?pt=UK_In_Car_Technology&hash=item19da6beb98
  8. just ordered this off ebay hope to get it in next day or so should look good on my zetec , i thought it was standard on titanium models but only seen it on a few . http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/151009160923?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649
  9. my 2011 zetec has the option to enable or disable remote folding ,
  10. avoid any garage car washes like the plague , the brushes are usually filthy dirty , i always wash mine at home with bucket and hose with a microfibre hand mitt and dry off with a micro fibre towel nothing fancy just some basic car shampoo and plenty of clean water. in my opinion if you pay to get your car washed you either got too much money or you dont care much for your car. :D
  11. im thinking of retro fitting a auto dim rear view mirror to my 2011 fiesta zetec, i did this in my previous car a 2003 focus , it was a simple 2 wire conection earth and 12v from the sidelights , im thinking of the titanium mirror , has anyody done this and is it the same simple mod to fit im thinking of taking the feed from the the interior light that has the orange led sidelights they do come on with the ignition but if the mirror has a daylight sensor on the front of the mirror then it will only activate in the dark anyway.
  12. i just fitted a set of these pioneer's in my 5 door fiesta zetec as it never had any fitted in the rear doors , came with adaptor cables and spacers fit front or rear , much better than the cheap cardboard ones ford supply. they also do kenwood ones same price. probably cheaper than the ford ones aswell. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/111038688152 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Fiesta-Speaker-Speakers-Kit-Kenwood-2008-/111038648824?pt=UK_In_Car_Technology&hash=item19da6b51f8
  13. it seem s dark because the cubby hole is black plastic , ive seen pics of fiestas possibly in the usa where its silver the same as the radio surround it shines brighter reflecting of a silver finish. see pic .
  14. thats probably the pub machines there was always a scam with them , normally somebody that writes the software puts a few cheats in the program and leaks it out. we dont do pub machines anymore.
  15. been with the company for 20 years.
