  1. 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.
  2. No because he is currently ill. A trip to the dealer would take allot out of him.
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Kpgs Mk3 Focus Titanium

    Ta se go halainn, Is maith liom!
  12. Pin 16 on the light switch

    I have the same one. Looks good.
  13. New phone or Fix current phone?

    Got the screen replaced some where else for a cheaper price. Will get the One plus phone maybe next year. My mates think I'm crazy for not getting a new phone, but I like my Sony Xperia Z3 compact, its fast and good enough for what I do with it, ie internet, calls and text. I definitely don't see the point of playing advanced games on a mobile.
  14. Pin 16 on the light switch

    Good stuff looks good doesn't it. Did ya get one with the senors or the normal one, at least you have a rear dome light to replace one with ha. Ford are a very strange company, some Focus's came with a rear dome light some didn't.
  15. Multimedia Units for Focus

    The fact that it has 2 gig of Ram is good. I have a similar Eonon unit and overall its good, but because of only 1 gig of RAM memory intensive apps such as Google maps is slow at loading up. All these units are made by the same people and sold on by EONON, Xtrons, Pumpkin etc. They just put their own software skins in them.
