  1. Buying Advice

    OK i have had her for a few weeks now and although i dont do a lot of driving at the moment (will increase after new year). I must say I am very impressed. The 2.0L Diesel engine is very punchy and smooth (a bit noisy but not to bad). Very comfortable seats ( i was worried about this as i am a fan of leather and as this was cloth i was concerned). big car but size is not a problemboot is hugeBluetooth is basic but functionalThe only problem I have is the stereo does not seem to play MP3's, i have tried two CD's which both work in my van (alpine head unit) but say disk error in the CD6000. I was certain this head unit played MP3s but may be wrong. Anyway, all in all very pleased with it.

    thanks for the info jeebo however I have just gone for a test drive and the car has already got reverse parking sensors (they just forgot to add it in the advert). Anyway I have put down a deposit and will be picking up Friday afternoon. Happy with the deal actually as i didnt realise they added on £274 for admin charges and there would not be any tax. So got them to add 6months tax and waive all the charges and paid £5900
  9. Buying Advice

    OK after guessing and second guessing what vehicle i was going to buy. (from a £20k BMW 520 to a £6k Fiesta). I have decided I am buying two vehicles (one will definitely be a van as I have wanted one for years). The family car will be this mondeo providing the test drive goes well this morning. It has just been reduced by £500 and ticks most of the boxes we want. I only need it for about 3 years so the higher mileage is not a concern. One question I have is that I want to fit some parking sensors, can anyone advise what ones I should buy and how easy are they to fit, and guides or tips etc.
  10. After Market Audio

    Cheers for the info slemon123 i expected issues with them as they are so cheap but am surprised to hear that you only had issues with the radio. I have always believed in the saying "if its sounds to good to be true, it probably is" Would be good to hear anyone else's experiences as well.
  11. After Market Audio

    i agree, its similar to the first link i posted. I am most likely getting a Mondeo around the 2009/10 plate so according to their information it should fit. Reading the spec it looks great but has anyone got any experience with their products? How good in the Nav? The bluetooth clarity etc
  12. After Market Audio

    OK looking at a mondeo (maybe a focus) and really want satnav BT etc in the vehicle I have been looking at a few on line and EONON keep coming up. I am not usually a fan of cheap equipment but can anyone actually recommend these? OEM look one EONON M1E strugling to find one of these except on foreign sites EONON G2103 someone else mentioned on here but again struggling to find one. Some alternative suggestions also welcome but was looking around the £200 - 250 mark.
  13. Buying Advice

    Cheers for the link BOF Stooge, looks a bargain but to be honest I was really wanting something with a lot lower mileage. Also only considered a Mk3 because it was a diesel ST an had good extras etc.
  14. Buying Advice

    OK garage phoned regarding the 57 plate ST £5850 is there any way to get a list of what was installed when it left the factory? Serial number VIN number search etc.
  15. Buying Advice

    i am not part exchanging my BMW so it will be a cash purchase. I will be expecting something off for a cash purchase, will see what happens. I have a few weeks before i need it so have a little time to look. Cheers again BOF
