  1. My leggy mk6 1.6TDCi runs significantly quieter on super diesel and does about 3mpg extra.
  2. Any feedback/comparison with the Mountune kit yet?
  3. My button also died - I replaced the stalk with one I got for a few quid on ebay.
  4. Fair enough, having read the press release, there's a little bit more to it I guess. Again, the cars in the photos have EATC as well as heated (cloth) seats and Sony navigation - the latter 2 were not availabe on the Zetec S - if some of these options are included in the price then that makes it more attractive......?
  5. Yeah, maybe, but painting stuff (including wheels) a different colour to what you would normally, costs nothing extra.Having a different map in the ecu costs them nothing extra either. And you are losing out on free road tax. I am rather disappointed that there's no unique special extras included in the price, like exhaust trim, leather etc similar to what they did on the Metal editions. Unless you are desperate for the silly paint job, I really don't see why you wouldn't just get a Zetec S and Mountune it.
  6. Anyone know what options these come with as standard? The car in the autocar piece appears to have EATC and heated (cloth!) seats - are these cost options or standard trim? Feels like it needs a bit more than a paint job and small power hike to justify the price......
  7. I wish they'd hurry up - I've been waiting a year for this now.
  8. Thanks, entirely sensible suggestions - just what I was intending to do next if I can find my !Removed! little old multimeter :)
  9. I have this exact same problem on my 2006 Zetec S. When stationary, you can hear the compressor is continually engaging, then disengaging a few seconds later accompanied by a hissing noise. Seems to work fine when moving. Regassing made no difference. My thought was also that the engine fan was not working, and I can confirm that it does not come on when air con is on and the car is stationary - it should shouldn't it? I've checked/ replaced the engine fan fuses and relays - made no difference. Any ideas anybody?
  10. Pretty sure quick clear front screen is standard on this model - mine certainly has it
  11. So is this only an issue without regular servicing - my engine has done 135000 miles but oil changed every year (or sooner), should I be worried?
  12. IIRC City Pack is rear park sensors + powerfold mirrors with puddle lamps - about £300
  13. On questions of spec, I believe that: - Zetec S will only have powerfold mirrors if you have the City Pack - Leather pack includes heated seats!
  14. Looks good. As above, what are the parts (diffuser and exhaust)? Is it the oem st diffuser?
  15. No, the last paragraph elicits the question I am asking. :)
