  1. Replaced metel caps and paid £70 for plastic ones

    erm 70 quid for plastic tyre dust caps?? i sense a typo somewhere...
  2. hello

    welcome mate how do you find it compared to the impreza? which impreza did you have?
  3. Petrol Ford Edge

    Can't be too bad surely. The same engine in the Mondeo is quoted at 48 or 49 MPG extra-urban cycle or something, so it should only be a little under that. Around town it will obviously drink fuel however. That said if you're buying a car for £35k+, I doubt you will care about a few MPGs difference :)
  4. Petrol Ford Edge

    Indeed, had the 2.0 Ecoboost Edge as a rental car recently, was the Titanium loaded with options, great car. Was a bit sad to return to my Focus after that lol
  5. 2012 5.4L V8 Ford Expedition

    Have no idea about the value so can't answer that part. But unless you're going to sell it to make a profit, I'd seriously reconsider bringing it back with you, unless you have endless pockets (for the fuel consumption) lol
  6. Dashcams, again!

    My car went into a Ford dealer a month ago, for some repairs. My dashcam is wired to the ignition. Out of curiosity, I played back all the footage, and noticed nothing interesting or unusual. From the footage I did notice that the guy who washed the car did have a quick fiddle with my custom android headunit though lol.
  7. Which is the best petrol

    I have a 1.6 petrol N/A engine. I find that none of the premium fuels (above 95 RON) give me greater power, or MPG (or at least not to a noticeable extent). The only thing that does change is that the engine seems slightly quieter and smoother when under load, and is quieter during idle as well.
  8. How Low can you go

    Agree with this, looks a bit chavvy IMO
  9. Am I weird because I like...?

    I think I prefer the front AND rear of the Mk3 to the Mk3.5. Don't know why, but the Mk3's looks seem to have aged well It also looks bigger than the Mk3.5. For me it goes Mk3 > Mk2.5 > Mk3.5. On a slightly more random note, I've always thought of how cool it would be if Ford were to offer a new Mk2.5 but with new engines (EcoBoost), better refinement (more comfortable and quieter ride), and tech (start/stop, driver aids, etc.).
  10. Things I Don't Like

    My bad mate, I was pretty tired yesterday, I'm completely with you now.
  11. Things I Don't Like

    Fair enough mate, of course anyone is welcome to disagree with me, we are lucky enough to live in a tolerant and free country, with freedom of speech. However if anything, I genuinely believe those people unjustifiably dishing out such extreme labels are actually the ones causing offense. Anyway, in order to keep matters civil on this forum, perhaps best to move onto other topics.
  12. Things I Don't Like

    Not sure if people count as a 'thing', but I'll say nonetheless: People who don't have an ounce of a sense of humour, and take everything seriously. Life is way too short for that! Nowadays, you have to tread on your toes, otherwise the humour police will arrive in full force and start throwing labels at you - 'homophobe', 'misogynist', 'sexist', etc.
  13. Things I Do Like

    Precisely. I was shocked to find out that it costs slightly less to get insured on a 240PS nearly new Mondeo, compared to my 8 year old slow (100PS) Focus. It'll be at least another 9 months until I can buy it though :(
  14. Things I Do Like

    Yep, they're (Ford) seem pretty keen to really shift as many of these cars as possible, even more so with the new scrappage scheme.
  15. Rest In Peace Mindel Mondeo

    Wow, very unlucky!! Get better soon James, at least it was a relatively minor prang, always could be much worse. As you said probably best to move onto another vehicle, it will probably be written off due to it's value anyway as you said.
