  1. Buying a new ST...

    I forgot to say that I bought my Zetec through DTD and it was New, unregistered as they advertised, so don't let your local try and scare you off by saying otherwise. I'm sure quite a few others have used DTD and/or CarWow here and have had good results. My ST3 wasn't through DTD but I used the same dealer I got my Zetec from who gave me a much better deal than all of my locals.
  2. ST3 MPG?

    I had a daily commute of ~18 miles each way on A roads with 30/40/50/60mph sections. Sticking (within reason) to the limits I got the figures below(keeping logs on FuelLog and Fuelly): 100bhp ZetecEcoboost: ~55mpg and ~450 miles from a full tank (42L) - filling up at the warning 50 miles marker. 182bhp ST3: ~40mpg and ~400 miles from a full tank (48L)- filling up at the warning 50 miles marker. I now have a 1.5L Diesel Fiesta work van (tracked ) so my foot has been slightly heavier in the ST3 when I've taken it out for a drive
  3. Buying a new ST...

    Check DriveTheDeal and CarWow. Get some quotes from there and see what your local dealer can do to match.
  4. Magnetic

    I've been slightly thinking about getting my ST wrapped. Not really sure I would do anything about it but then again I only thought about getting the ST and I did that
  5. Ford Sync Updates

    Are you talking about an Android phone and the voice directions? I found that my Nexus 5 would only play the voice through Bluetooth Audio. In addition there were several options under the phone's Bluetooth settings for Phone and Music audio to be shared. Might be worth checking if you have something similar on your phone.
  6. Ford Sync Updates

    I managed to download the files through the update process but had troubles with the USB stick/s that I tried. Eventually I used an 8gb Corsair stick that I fully formatted to FAT32 and then the car recognised and ran the update.
  7. 1st year service ST3

    How much have people paid for there 1st year service on there ST? Slightly long storybut I had £50 Ford credit after issues with my stereo unit last year. I had one quote of £141.16 from my local dealer and another of £181.10 from near my work place (who dropped there quote to £145 without paint inspection to match my local). Went with my local and after I went to collect the car this afternoon the service agent was going to charge me £145 inclusive of my £50 Ford credit. I had to push to get them to give me the earlier quoted price (which can't have been too cheap if I had a second dealer match it) and then take my £50 credit off of that price. Damn stealers!!
  8. URGENT HELP NEEDED TODAY

    Worth contacting Ford directly (tryTwitter if you use it - I had a pretty quick response)and also reporting the matter to them.
  9. URGENT HELP NEEDED TODAY

    Go to your dealer and get it booked in asap as a job under warranty. Don't give them an excuse that the warranty period is up.
  10. Anybody using a LUKAS LK-290 Pro to hardwire there dashcams? Picked up three Nextbase 512g's last week for £150 (each)from Halfords (for family cars)and looking to hardwire them with the Lukas LK-290 Pro to prevent the batteries discharging while using park mode. The Lukas LK-290 has a setting as high as 12.4v so it is supposed to stop batteries discharging too much that they deep cycle. https://www.lukashd.co.uk/LUKAS-LK-290-Power-Pack.php
  11. Magnetic

    Nice colour on the standard Fiesta, even better on the ST as it gives it that 'mean'/'stealth' look.
  12. Mobius mount

    A little update. I contacted the seller of the eBay mount and he got back to me pointing me to this 3d printed website for alternatives: http://www.thingiverse.com/search/recent/things/page:1?q=mobius%20mount There are several mounts that look good: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:979349 http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1257111 http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:872590 Just need to check the angle in the car.
  13. Ford Sync Updates

    Check if you were sent an account activation email. I can't remember if this was the case (check spam folders etc.). My update took exactly 20 minutes. Started at 21:23pm the other night and it was full installed at 21:43pm.
  14. Ford Sync Updates

    Well I downloaded the update onto a different 8gb stick and it was recognised by the system. Currently sat in Asda car park waiting for the update to run. Started at 21:23 and it said it could take 20 minutes to update! So much for a quick trip to the shops!
  15. Ford Sync Updates

    What did you do to get the update to even be recognised? Different USB sticks?
