  1. Sony Head Unit Upgrade

    - Sound quality is much better - Bluetooth compatible (if you install a separate Bluetooth module) - The latest Sony models support USB/AD2P (if you install a separate compatible Bluetooth/USB module) - Some models have a cd-changer - Some models support DAB (NOT DAB+, this won't be a problem for the UK) - MP3 disc support - different looks
  2. Strange thinking of Ford, because the UK has a colder climate than The Netherlands. Weird that we do get a standard PTC heater on all the Ecoboost models. Retrofitting should be possible, but it's a lot of work. You need to check if your heater box is compatible with a PTC heater. If it is, you need to remove you dashboard to place the heater element. After that you have to install the complete wiring loom and activate it with an IDS computer. A lot of work :)
  3. Later versions of the Titanium (X) are fitted with a PTC heater. Because the 1L ecoboost is an efficient motor, it produces less heat. When I hooked up an OBD cable with Forscan, there was a DTC fault that said there was a problem with the PTC heater. I turned out to be a faulty relay underneath the LHD headlight. When I replaced the relay the DTC was not there anymore and the interior heated up a lot faster. You could buy an OBD cable and download forscan, or ask you're dealer to check for DTC's.
  4. I'm planning to retrofit the rear view camera on my wife's MK7 (2008-2012). The screen of this camera is integrated in the rear view mirror. I'm hoping that someone could tell me if this mirror has also the auto-dimming function. Otherwise I have to choose between an auto-dimming mirror or the rear view camera.
  5. Fiesta mk7 Horn

    Google is sometimes your best friend:
  6. Will It Fit?

    No, the Fiesta has another mounting system. The only 'oem'ish mounting is the overhead Mondeo one. But you need to cut out a peace of your headlining.
  7. Mk7 Titanium - New Alarm?

    Exactly. I retrofitted the Thatcam Cat1 alarm in my MK7,5. This was never an option on the MK7, but the perimeter was. This alarm only needs two parts, the horn in the boot and a bonnet-catch with sensor. The only tricky part is the replacement of the asbuild file. Some dealers will help you with this.
  8. Mk7 Titanium - New Alarm?

    It is very easy, only in the UK you get perimeter alarm standard with the Titanium trim level. Over here in the Netherlands the perimeter alarm option is not even listed as an option. The thatcham alarm, which is standard on the ST model in the UK, is also not listed over here. The TS mentioned his Fiesta isn't an UK spec Fiesta, so it makes perfectly sense. That cleared up, the most easy way is to retrofit the perimeter alarm. Install the horn in the boot and the bonnet-catch with sensor, install the wiring and activate it with an IDS computer. I can't help you with info about an after-market alarm.
  9. Fiesta Radio Speakers

    The tweeter in the rear is placed on top of the woofer. So you've got 2 speakers in 1 casing. here's a picture:$_35.JPG
  10. Fiesta Mk7 Parking Sensor Module

    I retrofitted front parking sensors on my old MK7. In my topic you can find some more information. With Google translate you should be fine. There is one loom that ford doesn't make anymore, with a bit of luck you can find it on a scrapyard. If you need more info, just let me know.
  11. Dab/fm Signal

    Arob.sco is right, switch off the DAB Service Link. The alternative frequecy option is only for FM.
  12. ?less Bluetooth

    What happens when you press the 'voice' button on your steering wheel? The button in de middle on the left side of the steering wheel. Or you can go to ETIS, fill in your registration/VIN and look at 'Vehicle software'. There you see a list with al the modules in your car. If the APIM module is there, you've got SYNC.
  13. OEM (Original equipment manufacturer) means factory fitted or original Ford parts. After-market are all the parts you can buy in your nearest halfords shop or ebay. OEM is always more expensive than after-market parts. But on the other hand, OEM is tested, designed and manufactured by Ford (or companies that are approved by Ford). So you know it's especially designed for your car. If you have little knowledge about cars, be careful with making changes in your car.
  14. Do you mean OEM or after-market sensors? The OEM rear parking sensors are really easy to install. You need an module, connector cable, rear bumper cable and 4 sensors. The module doesn't need to be activated.The location of the sensors are marked inside the bumper (at least the front ones). The only tool you need is a drill that is the right size for the sensors. If you need the FINIS codes, just let me know.
  15. Fiesta's New Led Brake Lights 20

    The LED tail lights and a little storage net near the dashboard are the only thing Ford added to Fiesta's build after August 2015. Minor changes to keep the Fiesta selling for (probably) the last year or two. I asked my dealership if there is a finis available for the LED tail lights, but his ECAT wasn't updated yet. He could tell me that the retail price is around the 250 euro's a piece. A bit expensive... Picture of the little storage net:
