  1. Makes sense, but when the mirrors folded, the windows didn't go back up? Surely if it was locking, they would go up? Strange...
  2. Well seeing you've already convinced me not to go for IS300H, I'll ask you another one Mister wise man... Any reason not to go for a Merc C180 (facelift W204)?
  3. KIT? Am I getting old? lol Hmm, I guess that's the most sensible/likely option
  4. I'd expect the Audi A3 to be more refined than the Fiesta (especially in terms of road noise), though I could be wrong, this is only my best guess! I drive a heavy Focus with a 99PS engine, and even in that it's adequate, so it must do great in the Fiesta. That said, life is short, so if getting an ST makes you happy, then go for it ;) At the end of the day, cars are not investments, so go for something that makes you happy, so long as you won't break the bank in doing so. My advice is to test-drive at least a few different petrol vehicles you're interested in, and see how they feel. Often one has a perception of a car being super-amazing in their head, but sometimes the moment you have the test-drive, you realize that it's actually mediocre lol.
  5. So leaving work today, head to the car park to my car, to find a blue new-shape Mondeo Estate parked next to me. Except it's got all four windows fully down. With the owner nowhere to be seen. As I go right next to it, to open my own door, the mirrors on it suddenly fold. I assume these things can be remotely controlled via a smartphone app or something, and the owner was obsessively "guarding" his precious car from afar or something? Or were the electronics on it simply screwfed, and it was doing things of it's own? Some insight would be appreciated!!
  6. Whichever car you go for, go for a petrol - the government will be clamping down sooner or later on diesel cars, plus far less likely to go wrong. The 1.0 EcoBoost will be nothing like your previous 1.25, take a test drive to see for yourself.
  7. Lol this thread is like 2 years old mate ;) Since my last post in this thread, I've replaced the stock Ford 6000CD head-unit with an Android colour touch-screen head unit - I no longer have any whine. What I can suggest is that you turn UP the audio source volume (i.e. your phone's music volume) to near maximum, and then you can turn DOWN your head-unit volume, whilst still having the same amount of volume. This often helps reduce noise in most situations.
  8. Edit: nevermind!
  9. What's next Ford opening supermarkets? Or petrol stations? Though must admit the rates look fantastic, far better than what my bank (HSBC) are offering. Might be tempted to actually switch. They have a banking licence and are regulated by the FSCS, so it's pretty much a safe bet.
  10. Completely agree! Went to a friend's house party recently, and alcohol was obviously involved. I drove myself there (missed the train, which is once every 2 hours), but couldn't drive myself back. Another friend suggested asking the host to drive my car back to my place the next day, and I was like "ain't no chance that's gonna happen!" in my mind. On another note - things I like - having a very productive gym session, and enjoying the relaxing drive back home
  11. Ouch, that is kinda low, but I guess worth the joy you get from the car I'm sure :) True, if you actually enjoy doing something, it's easy to excel at it!
  12. But without the pressure to meet any tough sales targets :)) Btw what MPG are you getting on the motorway?
  13. No worries mate, as you said it's just one of the really mundane things about life. My contract is kinda like a 2 year long one - as I'm nearing the end of this period, I need to apply for a different role (within the same company), or to resign and get a job at a different one.
  14. I don't like spending my bank holiday Friday stuck indoors writing a job application. All this effort for it to potentially be tossed aside by some HR hiring nanny who think she knows all the ins and outs for the industry she recruits for, despite actually never having done any real work within it.
