      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Aftermarket radio head unita

    The oval shape Ford radios will fit. They have different radios for different cars, aswell as generic ones which I don't know much about.
  2. Aftermarket radio head unita

    Bought mine from www.eonon.co.uk (they have a UK warehouse). Yeah they are fairly easy to fit, just plug in and play. This is the video I used for a guide when I installed mine.
  3. Aftermarket radio head unita

    I have an Android Eonon unit that is very slow on start up. I believe the newer units with 2gb of RAM are supposed to be a big improvement. I wish i waited when I got mine ha.
  4. Focus mk2 climate control panel change

    Yeah I agree as standard the the mk2/2.5 dash is a bit cheap looking. A new radio and heater control knobs improved the dash of my Focus big time.
  5. How is that possible? Surely a 4 cylinder produces more torque? A 6 cylinder engine produces more torque over a 4 cylinder and a 8 cylinder engine produces more power and torque over a 6 and so on. In America the v6 Mustang is made fun of as just a rental car as the 8 cylinder produces more power and torque. Surely the advantages of 3 pot engines is fuel economy and engine noise over a 4 cylinder. The reason the the ecoboost produces so much low end torque for its displacement is because its a 12v engine compared to most modern 4 cylinder engines been 16 v. Same as a 8 v diesel engine produces better low end torque over a 16v ( both engines developed in the same generation).
  6. 1.6 TDCi average MPG?

    The trip computer thinks I'm getting 71 mpg at the moment, in real life I say its around just over 60 mpg. The last time I worked it out in April it was getting 57 mpg. The 1.6 tdci needs servicing every 6000-7000 miles.
  7. No because he is currently ill. A trip to the dealer would take allot out of him.
  8. Audio Quality

    Fair enough. I plan to change my car out for a Titanium mk3 or mk3.5 Focus in January, so I should get to experience the richer audio sound aided by the rear tweeters as well as better audio set up in general.
  9. Audio Quality

    The rear tweeters would improve audio quality at the back of the car I suppose but would it make much a difference for the driver? Or is it a case more speakers the better?
  10. OnePlus Phones??

    Agree on the One Plus 5. Great phone, another great phone is the ZTE Axon 7. It has front firing speakers which my one plus 3t does not have, great for media usage.
  11. Some Ford dealers are awful, my father spent nearly a month trying to get a particular Ford dealer to service his car so as to not to void the warranty. They promised call backs which never materialized. As mentioned there are good Ford dealers as well as bad.
  12. New Fiesta Reviews are in.

    Fair enough I get your point, its poor dealer service, I was a bit to harsh when I made that comment.
  13. New Fiesta Reviews are in.

    Customer Service is following through with promises made and after sale support. My old lad bought a Fiesta from a Ford dealer last year. He rang to get the car serviced a couple of months ago, fair enough the service department were busy when the he rang and the person on the other end of the line promised him she would get the service dept to ring back, but they never did. He rang twice and no call back, There are plenty of instances of Ford dealers ***** of their customers.
  14. New Fiesta Reviews are in.

    My last two Fords have been reliable and touch wood hopefully this continues. I agree that Ford customer service is awful though. The new Fiesta looks ace. Most likely best in its class.
  15. https://www.topgear.com/car-reviews/ford/fiesta http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/ford/fiesta/hatchback/review https://www.whatcar.com/ford/fiesta/hatchback/review/ Looks to be another great Ford. Best Fiesta yet by all reports.
