  1. I love keyless entry/start. However there has been a huge increase in thefts because of it.
  2. Nice car, good choice!
  3. Is the whining more pronounced in second gear?
  4. Fully legal.
  5. Yes they can. Even in plain clothes.
  6. Not jealous much. Much. I'm saving for Mexico. Can't !Removed! wait.
  7. Upside is Fiesta is a lot cheaper. My vxr feels a little quicker/more vicious than the fiesta. The Pug is big money for exclusivity though. On the upside, my VXR is 1 of only 261 club sports in existence :)
  8. Halfrauds do a rainX equivalent. Not bad but I've not found a better one than Rain X yet. Cracking stuff.
  9. Never been a huge Pug fan, but this looks great :) http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/peugeot/208/87638/peugeot-208-gti-30th-anniversary-priced-at-21995 https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=9zTheyLIvRc Looks a nice alternative and I'm loving the colour scheme...
  10. That's your missus's drink right? Hehe enjoy mate. !Removed! hard to get time off at any stage so make the most of it ;)
  11. Heat soak isn't a major issue on the ZS. What filter have you used?
  12. Ah...alas I'm screwed. I just put it in to reset it, and it's telling me it will not reset because the map was not properly removed from my previous Fiesta. Also confirmed through superchips who will not now reset.
  13. Good stuff, glad you weren't ripped off mate ;) I'm putting my my bluefin up for sale next few days, they reset mine for free yesterday ;) Obviously mines mk7, if there's a difference? Good luck with sale chap.
  14. Why would it have to go back to superchips to be reset? Superchips can just do it their end, you plug it into your laptop and it's reset after running the mybluefin software? If they charged you to do this within a year you've been ripped off mate the reset is free.
  15. Jesus there's a lot of bull !Removed! in is thread... HID lights are not dangerous just because they are HID's, let's get that straight out of the way. The way they are fitted,and what type of headlamp they are fitted to makes them dangerous.... Correctly fitted and aligned HID's in projector housings are absolutely fine. The only difference to factory xenon headlamps (which HID's are but cheaper) are the addition of a level sensor and headlamp washers. The sensor keeps the lights pointing where they should and the washer keeps the beam pattern from going all over the place. The problem is this. Far too many bell end chavs fit HID lights to reflector housings. The beam pattern is scattered all over the place and is blinding to oncoming vehicles. This instantly puts HID's into the 'dangerous' bracket which is actually unjust. No, technically they are not legal. Yes there may be an MoT issue (but let's be fair this has been punting around for ages so I'd not worry too much) but ultimately if they are fitted to projector housings and aligned properly there should not be an issue. I love xenon lights on the cars I've had before, and I'd have them on every car if I could as the light output is much better.
