  1. Must be something faulty, I have had the HID's for 3 years now and never had a problem with them, good luck, there are many posts on this site that will help with the install of the HID's, good luck
  2. Friend of the family, it was originally Maroon, but he didn't want to wait 6 months for the right colour so had it painted Blue, engine sounds great Can you spot the Matt Black stripes?
  3. I purchased it second hand, and as I said it's working 100% now, but every so often it doesn't, I would love to have a look behind those buttons to see if my theory is correct, but I don't want to take the steering wheel apart just for something small like that.
  4. I don't have the cruise control button, but I do have the same problem with the phone/ radio button on the steering wheel, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't, I also think it might be something sticky, maybe cleaning product that got in between the button and computer mechanism. I have noticed on sunny days when the car gets hot it tends to work better. if you do find the cure please let us know.
  5. Well as they say if you have to ask what the fuel consumption is you probably can't afford it, then again driving normal speed limits the owner of the vehicle told us he was getting 8 liters per 100km which isn't to bad if you factor in that its a 5 liter V8, then again press the peddle and I did it gets very thirsty. All said and done, our Rand $ exchange rate puts this vehicle in a Porsche Cayman price range and from a drivers perspective I would spend my money on a Porsche. Then again give me a original 1960's Mustang any day, it will probably turn more heads as well
  6. I think I might have just found a replacement for my Fiesta, with a bit more "Ponies" under the bonnet Thats one mean looking Nose
  7. Sorry if I might be Off topic, but I think we might have the same problem I woke up Saturday morning and my car just would not unlock with the remote, first I thought it might be the battery of the car, but when opening the vehicle with the key everything worked 100% So next up I thought it might be the battery, funny thing is it never gave any indication that the battery was dying, so I changed the CR2032 battery in the remote and still nothing, next up was google, so I basically did everything as above, and after four turns of the ignition between | and || it made the sound "ding" all good, but after this it just doesn't want to program my key, not even my spare key works, I don't get any reaction after the first "Ding" sound, what to do next??? any help would be appreciated. PS I have a 2011 MK7 fiesta OK I spoke to soon, after typing all this I decided why not try programming my spare key and "Walla" it works, so definitely a problem with my main key, funny, I never got it wet or fell or anything like that, one minute it worked the next it didn't
  8. Well now that the cats out of the bag about the new 200 ST would you hang on a bit or try and wrestle their price down with the new model soon to be released?
  9. according to Topgear it will have a limited run of 500 units per year. I am guessing this is the last update before the MK8, can't wait to see what the all new Fiesta ST would look like
  10. very nice, but still to expensive for my blood, I just went with the standard HID conversion kit, still working 100% after almost two years
  11. Would be interesting to see if it is possible, but in terms of costs I would just purchase a MK7.5, to answer your question and by just looking at the front ends I would say 1. the Bonnet needs to change 2. front nose 3. lights 4. fog lights 5. grill 6. bonnet logo internally I do think it's still the same vehicle
  12. maybe they save a penny for having to install a red Led?
  13. I have only seen the Orange light once, doubt I will ever see the Red in my part of the world. Ps. its 9:30 in the morning here and already hitting the low 30's
  14. I can recommend Yokohama's R1, so far I have no complaints sins fitting them and have done 6000km so far
  15. Is it not possible to purchase after market Projector housings for the MK6? I'm just thinking this because not a lot of people would go through the stress of doing what you did Kieran, only reason why I did it was because my MK7 Titanium had the projectors, so it was a straight plug and play for me.
