  1. Ford fiesta day time running lights.

    My understanding is that yes they are exactly the same fit however the wiring plug is different which would need to be manually wired in, then it would need re programmed by Ford. As I watson99 said they are not cheap
  2. What are my options?

    Hi Guys, So I have a Red Edition 2015 on PCP with an annual milage allowance of 8,000. When I got this I was going to work by train and had a low milage. However after I got the car I changed jobs now drive to work. I have had the car since Nov 2015 and have now done 19000 miles. I'm obviously looking at putting another 14000?? miles onto that before the end of the agreement next November. I'm worried that this is going to cost me a bomb either with a penalty to the finance company or to a lower trade in value. What options do I have and what would you suggest? Thanks
  3. New Fiesta, whos got one?

    So the new Fiesta is out and about, whos got one and what do you think of it? How does it compare to the last one?
  4. HID, Halogen, LED...what's best?

    I have fitted Osram Nightbreaker Plus into mine for both dipped and full beam. They are amazing. the difference between these and the standard OEM fitted ones is like night and day. They are extremely bright and whiter than standard (though not as white as LED or HID). For the £12 or so for each pack of 2 bulbs I'm very happy, I have thought about LED but starting to read into them it seems a bit of a minefield. I have had people in the car comment on how bright they are and how much of the road they light up. As far as insurance goes I have never mentioned to them about these but, I can't see there being any issues as they are road legal.
  5. ST-Line Badge on Front Grill?

    Yea your right the Zetec S had no I dentifying badging at all. You could by the S badges online to stick to the the rear and a bold on one to go through the bonnet. To my knowlege there is nothing like that for the ST Line. TBH not sure it would look good anyway. The ST has a big ST badge the Zetec S with a Smaller S looked really good but to have ST Line on the front would look wrong IMO. However whatever you do please don't put an ST badge on it that would be so wrong.
  6. New Fiesta Reviews are in.

    While not everyone does I'd suspect the majority do. Obviously manufacturers are going to go with the majority not the very few.
  7. New Fiesta Reviews are in.

    But is this poor Ford customer service or poor dealer customer serice?
  8. Fiesta dash ambient light strip

    There is a separate bulb and bulb holder that you can get from the dealer. Its under a tenner so not too expensive. You insert the long end of the strip through the small hole at the end of the recess in the dash then click it all into place then reach under and attach the plug into the led bulb holder then plug it into the rear of the long but. Hope that makes sense lol.
  9. How do I stop the interior rattling?

    to be fair my last 2 cars, Zetec s and ST were both fine which makes this one seem worse.
  10. How do I stop the interior rattling?

    I have quite a few as well. the dash creaks and rattles in a few places, there is a rattle behind me somewhere, not sure where. there was a rattle coming from the A pillar covers which the dealer removed and reseated, this seems to have helped that a bit. The problem is everytime I take it in to get looked at they can never hear them
  11. Giving the car back early on Ford Options

    Not sure about the tyres however if you do hand the car back then in order not to have to pay a settlement figure you'd have to have paid at least half of the loan amount. If not then you can't just hand it back and walk away. If you are over the half way mark and you do hand it back then be aware the finance company will likely put a Voluntary Termination notice on your credit file which could affect your ability to get car finance for a while. I handed a car back a few cars ago and this happened to me. Luckily I had arranged the new finance before handing the car back so it wasn't a problem. Have you found out how much you'd get as a trade in against the new car? Would you not be better to go down that route?
  12. Android Auto Issue

    Have an issue with Android auto and not sure what the problem is. It only happens when my Phone (galaxy S7 with latest software) is connected by Bluetooth. Basically I can't use spotify in Android Auto. It just keeps shutting down and loading again then shutting down. It's fine if I do the same thing through any other bluetooth source just the car. Also I can play Spotify fine on its own. If I use tunein radio within Android auto its fine. The fact that it plays fine through any other Bluetooth source leads me to think its something to do with the car. Any ideas?
  13. Headlights

    I have used the Osram Nighbreakers for my past few cars and have to say they are amazing. I think I have only had one blow on me and that is on my current car. I was using the nightbreaker unlimited's but the ones that are in atm have been in for quite a while. You can get them on Ebay for under £15 a pair so there not too expensive and make a huge difference over the standard OEM bulbs. They are perhaps not the crisp blue/white light you get with HID's but they are pretty good.
  14. Dwindling Fuel Consumption since last service

    No idea
  15. Dwindling Fuel Consumption since last service

    Oh ok didn't realise that, though have had the car for over a year and didn't notice this till November when I had the service.
