  1. Did anyone else see this at the start of the latest Top Gear (montage in first episode of the new series showing whats coming up)? Focus or Fiesta? Have they announced an ST in the new shape Focus?
  2. Just a thought, I have a HTC Desire - I know it's not running Windows, but I thought the way i paired mine might help.... If you go to the Bluetooth settings on your phone, you have to make it discoverable. This will only last 2 mins, but once paired you'll be OK. You got me thinking tho (at the risk of hi jacking your thread), on mine the contacts show up on the car screen backwards i.e surname first - EVEN THOUGH I put both names in the same name field (doesn't matter if its First or Last!!) and on the phone they are the right way round! Any ideas of how to sort this out there?
  3. I like this colour, but i'm still undecided if I PREFER it to the Tango I had previously. BTW, A pic has been added, managed to get it off my phone, shows the miles when I picked it up: 9 Miles Oh yeah!! Single digits LOL B)
  4. I see what you mean about it looking grey, close up you can definitely see its a blue, just! Especially under the orange street lights.
  5. Picked this up on Saturday. What do you think?
  6. If I had a blue car, I wouldn't have them either. For me it was just that the Ford badges now are quite large, and that much blue on a red car needed removing! The black I have now is quite subtle. I WILL add some pics to show it ;)
  7. I had the red overlays on my Tango. I ended up changing them for Black and Chrome cos the red looked pink under orange street lights! And it just didn't really work on mine. BUT it made me realise the ones I have now are quite universal - like they say Black goes with everything! Your green goes better than my red did...
  8. Here's a link to my 'Hello' page. The pics aren't that good, but give you the idea. I'm still meaning to post some better ones, but that means I have to clean it properly. @Flic I thought about that as a ringtone too... maybe a text alert rather than a call tho?
  9. That makes it a MK6, I THINK the dash was the same as the 6.5 I had, so yeah if you don't have the button, maybe the screen was replaced at some point and all they had were the heated type. If you're interested you may have a little project on your hands now, you could hook up your own power supply/switch to it B)
  10. Welcome. What age is your car? You should have a separate button for both screens, on the MK6.5 I had, it was next to the button for the rear screen. If it's older, I'm not sure where it should be, maybe another member will help.
  11. I was under the impression that if the kit is spec'd at manufacture, and thus on at registration, it shouldn't need to be declared. Well that's my defence, your Honour ;)
  12. If I may refer you to post #41 of this thread, I was informed of how to find the options. If the info in this post is not what you see, and you already have Bluetooth handsfree and USB, have a word with your dealer about updating BOTH the stereo & Bluetooth module.
  13. Well, as I had Bluetooth handsfree and USB already, I only added the streaming. I don't know if you are missing one or both of these that you can add streaming (My bluetooth module - which is separate to the rest of the stereo - was updated on my last visit). I'm also not sure this is 'confirmed' by Ford, but as I was chatting to the Tech Guy, he seemed interested himself to see what was possible
  14. I actually 'Laughed Out Loud', well more bellowed, at that pic-love it. You can't get a better space than that! ;)
  15. The MK6/6.5 were available in Ink, I nearly got my 6.5 in that colour (after the Ocean I ordered was totaled just 2 miles from the dealer on the delivery low loader ) I was put off the ink by my dealer/mate who said it was almost like black-which I'd already decided against as it's a bugger to keep looking clean.
