  1. Your insurance company may not cover your for certain accidents if you fit a tyre with less rating than that specified. Check your owners manual for what is required for your model.
  2. My Frozen White Zetec S MK7.5 build thread

    Mine came the grey colour. Calipers - depends if you want them to stand out or blend in. If stand out then match them to your "theme" colour. But leave the rear drums black.
  3. Aftermarket DRLs

    Hi, I've purchased some aftermarket DRLs for my Fiesta. What's the best ignition-live wire in the vicinity of the passenger headlight to wire them up to? Thanks
  4. 125PS on German Autobahn

    I thought the 140PS had lower gearing? In that case it's top speed will likely be less than the 125PS, it'll just get there quicker.
  5. 2013 1.0l Ecoboost engine rust. Problem?

    I think I'll clean and coat in anti-rust just to be sure. Any advice on a good high temperature anti-rust coating? Of course if it is a galvanic reaction then that might explain the variations between different turbo versions as they might have different metal formulations, or at least the pipes might. Then there is probably no fixing it. I'd expect Ford would know about this by now if it were the case.
  6. My Frozen White Zetec S MK7.5 build thread

    The headlights in he Fiesta are so poor that I personally wouldn't make them any worse by tinting them. Agree with the wheel comments. Grey looks better against the white. Black just seems to blend into the tyres/general arch darkness

    How can you tell?
  8. Fiesta ST-Line Mountune

    There is no upgrade kit listed for the 140PS. Their MR165 is not completely warranty friendly https://www.mountunestore.com/collections/mk7-fiesta-1-0t/products/fiesta-b299fox-mr165-power-upgrade-kit?variant=1263939724 You could however fit components from the kit that may slightly inprove sound and throttle response and engine "breathability" without affecting your warranty, such as air box, primary and and secondary hoses, and charge pipe upgrade kit.

    I'd read they don't have Canbus, but got a message saying Canbus error when I tried LED indicator lights

  11. Thinking of remapping, is it worth it?

    I've had Bluefin for almost 12 months now and personally haven't had any problems. The power and torque increase is very noticeable af fuel economy doesn't seem to have got any worse, though of course the that depends how you drive it. I would have gone for Revo had it been available here, simply because of their smoother torque curve and upgrade path to Stage 2. Bluefin has stage 2 for the ST but not the 1.0 as far as I know.
  12. Changing steering wheel

    Hi, I've purchased a ST steering wheel so I can add cruise control and because it's a nicer wheel. What is the size of the nut that fixes the wheel to the column, and what should it be torqued to? Thanks
  13. OBD Scanners

    Doesn't it work with an iPhone? I've tried a couple of Bluetooth ones but can't get them to work with an iPhone. The wifi ones work fine but then the phone tries to connect to the internet through it rather than cellular roaming
  14. Low Coolant Warning Project questions

    Any update on your project?
  15. How much more fun is the St to Zetec-s

    I'm just older than you and I have a mapped 125PS. If they had STs here I'd have one of them. Getting in and out is fine unless you've got some kind of disability. While the ride isn't the softest, the fun you'll have driving more than makes up for it. A change of rear dampers will improve the ride significantly, as the STs are over dampened in the rear.
