  1. Nice warm red led's won't light the car up, not even with the led strip fitted as well. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  2. This was my previous Black Edition, I fitted the glovebox led strip. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  3. I believe the holders are there, you just need the lamps or led's put in if you don't have them Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  4. That's identical to my 1.0 Zetec S Ecoboost. Fine car, love it, love all the Ecoboost range, I've had 3 in 4 years lol. What are you having to decide about? Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  5. Red led strip across the glovebox and red led's in the footwell lights gives a lovely warm ambience. Especially in winter.... Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  6. Gold looks good on a grey car too, I did my i30 calipers, front and back in gold. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  7. Yes repainted, but prepare the surfaces better this time, painting on to dirt/dust is asking for trouble. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  8. Ive always been an addict for detail, once a month the wheels come off so I can polish the whole of the wheels and not just the fronts lol. While they're off I pressure wash under the arches (carefully!) then clean up any rusting bolts or nuts, clean exposed threads out an polish anything easily visible as a passer by haha....

  9. An hour a side. Nothing special about the paint, the preparation is everything, dismantle, clean, degrease, rub down. I used a fine, small brush and applied 4 coats of caliper paint. Let it dry after the last coat, then re-assemble using copper based grease in the right amounts and places. Keeping them. Lean after is important or they get to look shabby but my paint hasn't come off. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  10. Seriously folks, I can understand people wanting to make their brakes LOOK more "mutts nuts" but for a road going older fiesta, a properly working braking system is fine. For a track day car it's worth upgrading if you have deep pockets as others have said. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  11. Any Motorfactor can supply them. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  12. Really interesting and a great post. I was pleased to see the high level of pre production testing of the Ecoboost engines. It seems some faulty parts are capable of causing huge damage due to narrow technical engineering safety margins. However Ford should know about it! Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  13. I work at a large Motor Factor and I can tell you ALL manufacturers suffer coils Spring breakage, we sell loads every week from Fiat to Mercedes. Traffic calming and road conditions play a big part, but the springs take a lot of punishment on every drive. With an older car just change them every 2/3 years maybe if you're that concerned, maybe change the dampers and bushes too....the handling will be great. Ok, I'm having a bit of a giggle, but the thing is, springs give no warning. Few crack in a place you could see it at a service and MOT really only checks the, as they are AT THAT TIME. The significant thing here is how your dealer responds, they may well respond differently to each other, but on an older car what might reasonably be expected? So it's not a unique Ford problem, it affects all cars with coil springs, even old leaf springs crack and break, usually less dramatically. So, to avoid breakage, get them changed every few years.

  14. Have a good look for rust at the fuel tank and filler pipe. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  15. Then close the window on the remote key..... Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
