  1. New Fiesta TPMS wrong value

    Hi guys, last week i got my brand new fiesta delivered. Although i knew it's equipped with Tpms, reading the manual i understood that it would only show a notification only if the tired lost its pressure and not the actual values. But on the car menu in the information tab i can see the tyre pressure as well. The problem is that, when i corrected the pressure after the delivery even though i reseted the system via the menu, i have got wrong pressures shown. I have 33psi at front and 28psi back but it shows 37psi and 30psi. I 've reseted the system and did what the manual says after reset ( driving for a while above a certain speed) but without luck. Any thoughts?

  3. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    I was supposed to have my st-line delivered this week in Greece, but its been delayed for the second week of November. I should have it until the 10 of November according to the salesman. I have the vin though since early October and I made the order at the end of July.

    Hi guys, i m hijacking this thread coz its the same subject. I want to change my bulbs with the whiter osrams or philips, but i m concerned about the life expectancy. I dont want them more white than 4200K and biggest priority is the longlife! I think Night Breakers or white vision are my choices. What are your suggestions? Thanks in advance.

  6. It you think it that way, S is an ST without 'T' .
  7. Fiesta 125 vs 140

    Thanks a lot for the info mate! All of you actually! You 've been most helpful. The dealer claims that he will honour the warranty, even with the rica map on. He's the one that will install it also. Don't know if i can get that on paper though. I 've been their client for over 10 years with my Mk6 and i m very pleased all those years.

    Not sure if i understood. You mean that issues come up if you remove the torque limiter i 1st,2nd gear? I think the rica remap for the 125 variant doesn't remove it . It does remove it though in the 140 model remap according to their website.

    Thanks a lot mate, so with a rica remap lets say, at 225Nm i would run into trouble in the long run? Even without burning it all the time?

    Is any way to find out how much torque the new 6 speed gearbox of the mk8 can handle?
  11. Fiesta 125 vs 140

    Thanks a lot for your replys. Since the turbo is the same part, i ll get and map a 125. The extra economy with the long gears is most welcome since unleaded here is very expensive. Most of my fears are the realibility of the engine and the gearbox due to the map, but at my dealer we can do it and still keep the warranty.
  12. Fiesta 125 vs 140

    Hi, looking into buying the new st-line, i was wondering about the differences between the 125 and the 140 variants. I 've been researching and i think the differences are : 1) the map, 2) 140 has a different gasket and 3) the differential. Is this correct? The thing is that, due to the tax system here in Greece, the 140 is about 1500€ more expensive than the 125 model. I was going to get the 140 but the salesman promted me to get the 125 and change the ecu map after. Also,lets say that i get the 125 and map it with rica 140ps, would the difference in the differential be a big difference between mapped 125 and stock 140 in normal driving conditions? I 'm not intrested into street racing and stuff. In ford's documents the 125 has a FDR of 3.941 while the 140 has 4.353 .Any thoughts are welcome. Thanks in advance.
