  1. Happy Birthday Epu!

  2. Hi! I was just wondering that is it possible to program side/lowbeams off on 2011 model fiesta when it's daytime(bright). And then they come on when its dark. Was just wondering about fitting DRL's and atleast in finland you can't have sidelights/lowbeams on when the DRL's are on. Ofcourse its legal if they are dimmed. But the whole Idea is for them to be bright so I would like for this DRL assembly to be legal and to work as it should.
  3. Fiesta Mk7 Drl Fitting Guide!

    Anyone here who has tried "eagle eye" type of LED's as DRL? I would like to know which ones to choose from as there is many different ones goes from 1.5w to 9w. So I would like to know which ones are usually used on as DRL's I believe citroen DS3 has eagle eye's as DRL's.
  4. Fiesta/lowered/alloys

    Actually mine (the red) and the black one have the exact same wheel size. 8.5 width 17 inch ET 35 I have 205/40/17 so theres a little bit of stretching there. The real size for those alloys would be 225 I think. But then the wheels would hit the wheel arches all the time so thats why I went with a smaller tire.
  5. Fiesta/lowered/alloys

    Apparently the DRL's I have around the fog lights were too bright for the camera to capture. It's supposed to be perfect bright circle. :/
  6. Also from start to finish (taking apart and putting back on) fitting a tuning box with the instructions from this guide takes me 15mins. So thanks for the guide Jedilard! Its really not that much of a hassle. First it took me good 30mins but the second time when I knew exactly what tools I needed and what to do it takes around 15mins.
  7. Anyone here who can help me out with choosing a good chip tuning box for fiesta 1.6tdci 95ps. I bought "powerbox 3" named box and apparently didn't work. Tried my old DS-tuning box from my old MB but with that the car didn't even start. So some links to ebay or something would be much appreciated.
  8. "window Look" Or Not?

    Nope no distinction between however with a van you're paying less tax. Normal fiesta 1.6tdci 95ps tax costs 413.5 euros which is roughly 343 GBP a year. For the exact same car except van version it's 144.9 euros = 120 GBP. In finland tax scales with emissions and diesel cars have another tax on top of the normal one! However diesel costs less than petrol. Diesel costs 1.430-1.550 euros depending on the day. Petrol is around 1.580-1.680 for 95/E10 And 98/E5 is something like 1.680-1.780. Also our insurance system is way different. Our insurance system doesn't have any groups your cars insurance costs depends on pretty much how many have been crashed or thats pretty much how it works. So if your car is rare and pretty much no one owns same type of car the chances are your running on low insurance costs cause there isn't that many people to crash that type of car and thus not bringing the insurance costs up.
  9. "window Look" Or Not?

    Your reasons doesn't apply to me/finland! But theres another rule! Summer speedlimits on motorway is 120km/h = Which is 74.5 Mph. However with a van you are only allowed to go 100km/h = 62 Mph. So if I make it look more like a car I know for sure that the police won't come after me.
  10. "window Look" Or Not?

    Think they are pretty much just glued so with some heat they might come off easy. Not too much of a hassle to protect the rest of the car if painting and wrapping em/taping isnt a problem ofc ( just wondering if it comes off easy when I wash the car.)
  11. So I own MK7 fiesta sport van. Now mine has these body colored plastic parts where you usually have your rear passenger windows. So the question goes should I paint them black or mayby tape them black to get a window look? What do you guys think? For you to even have a vague Idea heres a pic how the car currently looks (sorry for the bad quality.)
  12. Choosing Alloys.

    Yeah those are awesome though I suspect they are a bit expensive?
  13. studio or zetec?

    1.6tdci 95ps MK7 fiesta here when I got it I was really disappointed in the power/torque it could give out. My brothers B-class MB with its 109BHP CDI engine is a lot faster and on paper my fiesta should be faster cause its a lot lighter but that is not the case in the real world. However I overcame my disappointment shortly when I got to a quiet narrow/twisty road its really nice car to drive and doesn't feel as slow when you're cornering :). Still the 1.4 tdci should be better than your 1.1l citroen. Well Im getting mine chip tuned anyhow to get more power and less consumption.
  14. Choosing Alloys.

    Yeah they are okay though personally I dont like black alloys that much cause it doesn't look that good from a distance. Also black alloys always look 1" smaller than they really are imo. And last but not least if going with alloys that have a "lip" be sure you have your car "low enough" alloys with lip look stupid on cars that have gaps between on wheel and the wheel arch and thats also my own opinion :D.
