  1. Dammit. If anyone could point me in the right direction for some 5door mk7 deflectors it would be appreciate. I've taken the rear one off too so now they are only on the right side of the car, looks dumb but I'll use the drivers one on the way back. Besides car already looks stupid with the fooken kayak on the roof. Cheers fellas
  2. I know this is a shot in the dark as whole kits are hidden enough but I'm looking for a replacement for my left front door. I did a big drive down to Plymouth with a kayak in the roof and I tucked the strap into the window as usual, opened the door forgetting and a little bits cracked off. Going to remove it for the 200 mile drive home as I don't want it flying of and hitting something/someone If it comes to it I guess i will just have to buy the whole set again Cheers Matt
  3. It's illegal to change the type of headlight in a car. Your fiesta has halogen bulbs so putting any other type of bulb in is illegal. Halogen for halogen. Also, as you have a standard model fiesta you don't have the projection type headlamps so those HIDS will dazzle people. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  4. The recirc button makes all the difference in my fiesta Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  5. Ford filled mine right up to the top, maybe even over the max but a couple mm. It's corrected now Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  6. Nice. I would have got one of those if think ford had any when I was looking for a fiesta! Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  7. They put that delivery price up on the one I bought. Was only £4 a couple days ago. Not even next day deliver. Don't buy them from Amazon that eBay sells sounds a better deal Sent from my iPad using Ford OC

  9. I just got some team heko ones for my five door fez on Amazon Will get the link now for you Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  10. I'm like you. Part of me loves it but another part is a bit dubious Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  11. Hasn't american petrol got a lot more ethanol in it too? Speaking with some american friends, the recon the petrol here in the uk is a lot better than what they get.
  12. The red matches all thee other colours, the buttons at night have red, the ambient light is red ect. Changing it would probably looks worse. If you want blue then buy the facelift fiesta, other than that I don't think you can change it. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  13. I was told that by the dealer but my cars doesn't seem to like bp, don't seem to get as many miles out of a tank with it. Must be our area or something. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  14. I run a tack full of V-power a month, then usual shell the rest of the time. Never really notice anything different with the v power performance wise (Bear in mind I drive a 1.25l not an ST) But the cleaning additives do good for the engine. When I got the car last year, the engine was a little rough so I used v power for a month and it improved and runs like a dream now.
  15. Thats what I thought
