  1. My car's only a year old now but the wipers are starting to not be as effective imo. Tbh I was expecting to be told last service in March they needed replacing But they weren't so hopefully hum Anyway long story shortened, I purchased some bosch aero twin wipers for my car (£41 for the 3!!), back wiper fit perfectly but the front 2 don't fit at all... So I'm going to have to bother ford parts for the wipers. Anyone know of any open today (sunday) I want to physically go and get them not order online btw
  2. Car cam

    I've gotten rid of my old NextBase 302g ( found the issue was with the sd card not the cam itself btw), and replaced it with the singing and dancing NextBase 512g. Thing is I want to cover the rear facing view now, easier said than done. .. I've got a tinted (factory) rear and side windows and to top it off a sub which rattles said window. So Recommendations please (already got a mobius, after one with video screen if poss)
  3. Do I or don't I? I'm still pondering, but if I did how easily is it done? Wheels obviously repaint to sparkle silver, ST diffuser and valance remove replace with ordinary valance / bumper. What of the body kit? The insurer counts it as an add on even though the factory put it on, so well anyway - how easy to remove? Is it just tug hard enough and bob's my uncle? I heard when part of it started coming loose it's just stuck on anyway. I'm rather fond of my illuminated gear knob so that'll stay . I think that's it... Doing all this revision will save me on average between 15 - 35 per month with the insurer's
  4. I've had a letter through from Ford and I'm wondering if it's good value or not. So how much should let's say a full valet, 30 point check and AC refresh cost me? Ford are quoting £29.99...
  5. My new job (yay!) Requires a lot of working in the cold, so aside from the old adage:if you're cold you're not working hard enough, I'm thinking of layering up. So.Does anyone know if thermal underlayers show if you're wearing them or not? I'm female so I'm going to go for the scoop neck variety so it shouldn't be literally visible lol
  6. Hi, seen your post asking if lads interested in used 302g. Have you still got it, if so what are you asking for it, I'm after one. 

  7. Things I Do Like

    I got it!!!!
  8. Things I Don't Like

    Similar, I was up at just before 8 for the school run (thankfully very local ) Sooo tired I might take the chance of a midday nap -work nights usually - this week so far I've been off and it's messed my body clock right up!
  9. I MIGHT note big might, be part ex ingmy current TX, do I remove the sub and dashcam wiring (both are wired in) or not? Also do I return my car to factory spec or is it OK as it is? Cars on ford acquire hp and I've checked it's value equals the cost owed to ford at the minute
  10. IF

    IF, note big IF I get the job position I've applied for my mileage is going to go from near nothing to approx 75-80 miles a day, so I'm thinking of changing my petrol 125ps tit x fiesta for a focus if needs be Few questions though, what spec to go for ? I've toyed with the ST3 but tbh it'd be a waste, so I'm more thinking the normal specced cars. What does each specreally offer? Is the better mpg really present for a diesel against a ecoboost petrol? What are the downsides to a diesel? As I'll be honest in all my years of driving, apart from the odd van for 5 minutes, I've never really driven one, not to get used to their quirks at least anyway Help me
  11. Things I Don't Like

    I don't like that I can't sleep at this ungodly hour...
  12. Things I Don't Like

    I don't like the braindead moron who nearly reversed into my car in Halfords car park (I was picking up a air freshener). Despite my tapping the horn then blasting my horn he kept going back. My husband got out of the car...to which the girlfriend (?) Of the driver uttered 'sorry', I just glared at the driver as he got out (my husband to me to leave it). Of course it was a vauxhall corsa...
  13. Dodgy Dimplex... Help Required!

    Before you start unscrewing anything can you not simply take it back for an exchange? As this one is faulty I don't see why not
  14. Ford badge project

    Still going....
  15. Which DashCam?

    NextBase 402g it's what my husband has and I can't fault it... ..wanna used 302g?
