  1. Hi All, Made two projects/builds on here before, nothing dramatic. Always wanted an ST and decided to get one as my insurance changed over at the end of January this year. Shoutout to TrustFord in Enfield for this! Was looking at trading in my Titanium for a new ST, then remembered the price difference. I then picked Stallone up for 13K with all the discounts and haggles etc taken down, only 8 months old! Comes with all the gadgets I had on the titanium, which I was used to (Auto lights, auto wipers etc.) but the heated seats etc. added to this just top it off! And then comes the power.. the torque it has is ridiculous, if you are in a position to get one of these, honestly.. just go for it. You won't be disappointed. List of things/idea's that I will/might be doing: 1. Upgrade all interior (courtesy, footwell, boot) 2. Upgrade number plate lights 3. Upgrade reverse lights (CREE LED)  need to add pictures 4. De-tango all indicators (rear, side and front lights) 5. Gel Overlays (Front, steering, boot badges, might do wheel centres and vents, ST Badges) 6. Smoke/Blackout lights/badges  sort of, will be re-doing these 7. Upgrade dipped beam to HID's 8. Upgrade Fogs to ??? 9. Black out alloys (plastidip or powder coat) 10. Induction Kit - J1 kit? 11. Colour coded pipes for engine (white/black) 12. Sunstrip 13. Hardwire a dashcam 14. Headlight brows  bought but not sure, needs painting as well 15. Blackout rear bumper, fog inserts, lower grill. Also paint the engine cover black/white. 16. Change the whole front headlight units (retrofit, blacked out, change the LED DRL for a more whiter look) 17. Mountune spoiler exhaust or RS spoiler, Maxton design do both of these. 18. Front & side splitters. Triple R looks pretty good. 19. Front bumper extensions or RS style front bumper. The front bumper extensions are done by fifteen52 originally, but both can be bought from Maxton design also. 20. Mountune/Revo/Peron tuning, remaps, exhaust etc. Mountune will keep my warranty, by Revo looks like a better deal, i've heard a stage 3 Revo and it was crazy. 21. Find matching keyring and smartkey cover. 22. Find matching dustcaps. 23. Add another rear fog light on the other side (not sure what side they come with but it annoys me that it isn't symmetrical. 24. Add rain deflectors for wing mirror's (not sure on these) 25. Add wind deflectors  purchase new ones? *Will be added a few updates to this post*
  2. No power to radio

    Hi, looking for some help on the off chance someone can provide some advice. I've got a ford focus 1.6 2009. I've had problems with the stereo. The led remained on and continued to drain the battery. I brought it to someone a year or so ago, he couldn't find the problem, so it was just left. I've now got a new stereo and whilst installing it I discovered there was no power running to the stereo. Any advice?? 
  3. I have a Ford Focus Zetec 2008 with the Sat Nav radio upgrade in it and I'm looking to swap it out for the Pioneer SPH-DA120 (but am open to options). Just looking for some tips on the things I may need to get this fitted, I know this is a double DIN aftermarket radio so I'm assuming I will need to buy a new fascia panel as well as a new cage(?). Does anyone know the type/how to find the type of kit that would make the current steering wheel stalk controls compatible with these aftermarket radios? I see Halford's offer a couple but are simply labelled "ford", are they compatible with all/most models or will I have to find a specific version for my car? Any tips on what to look for here? The current fascia panel I'm looking at is this but I'm going to check to see if the current cage is compatible that houses the Ford one at the moment to see if I can just get the plastic font part instead of the entire cage. Long shot: The sat nav directions from the current Ford radio come up on the centre of my dashboard (a distance to the next turn, an arrow and a road name) as well as on the screen itself, is there anyway I can get this back with an aftermarket system? (I'm assuming not). Thank for your help! Aaron
  4. So, new year and new upgrade plans. Just wanted to hear the thoughts of anyone who has these in their cars: 1. Focal Performance PS165 2 New: Focal Performance PS165FX Is the new material in the FX worth the price bump from the PS165. I have no way of hearing them myself in person and I can only rely on reviews off the internet. So far, no decent review on the FX but it did win some awards, so it can't be half bad. Also, I found this off Ebay and was wondering if it would fit my MK2.5 even though it is meant for the MK2: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Focus-Mk2-Custom-Fit-MDF-10-Sub-Box-Subwoofer-Enclosure-Bass-/360623710681 Plan would be to get the sub enclosure and also get this JL Audio 10" sub to pair it up with: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JL-Audio-10w0v3-4-10-Inch-25cm-300-Watts-4-ohm-Car-Sub-Subwoofer-/181082630165?pt=UK_In_Car_Technology&hash=item2a295da815 Any suggestions regarding front speakers and 10" sub woofers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks :)
  5. Upgrading Centre Console?

    Looking to upgrade my centre console to the one they have in the Titanium (With the armrest and different style handbrake) Just curious is it actually possible and what parts will I need, this is something I would like as using a coffee cup as an armrest is not so convenient lol.

  8. Hello, I had to change my battery yesterday in my 2007 s-max titanium, so I now have to reset my radio. I have the keycode and have tried following the instructions, but nothing seems to work. I manage to key in the code, but I can't then seem to confirm it. And now I have to wait 30min everytime I start the engine before I can try again! I am missing listening to my radio :-( Thank you
  9. My Ford Mondeo was working fine until today when the radio packed in. It is now switched on showing the clock but with the dash lit up even though the engine is off. I was driving along listening to a CD and had my phone connected to the radio with Bluetooth. A call came in and everything seemed to freeze. I was unable to answer the call but also unable to get the radio to switch off phone mode back to the radio. I disabled the Bluetooth on the phone to disconnect it from the radio. I tried switching to radio. I tried switching the radio unit off. Nothing. I was able to eject the CD. I went to a meeting and parked the car and the radio unit was still on. When I returned (4 hours later) it was still on but the car started and I drove in silence as the radio didn't do anything. I am able to use the steering wheel controls to select channels on the radio or switch to CD but the radio unit doesn't respond. I have now returned home and parked up for the night. The radio display is the clock with a faint background glow. I worry my battery will drain overnight. Is there a way to reboot the radio unit? Will I need a security code if I pull the fuse out - and if I don't have one, where do I get it from. Any help appreciated, Andy
  10. Hello, My Ford Fiesta 4500 RDS headunit , will not change volume ? I have tried another headunit (the same one from eBay) and exactly the same issue . The headunit will turn on and play music but you can not change the volume or turn it off/on . I previously did have an aftermarket headunit in it, which did change volume , Im now reverting back to the standard headunit. Has anyone had this problem or know the fix? Thanks

  12. Hi, This is my first post! I have recently obtained a Ford Fiesta 2003 as a present from my parents as my first car. I am wanting to change the stock radio which came with the car (the triple section 4500 RDS). I have been looking at possible radios to replace the old one with but I wondered if there would be any cable swapping required or whether I would just be able to use an adapter. Here are the radios I am looking at: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Kenwood-KDC-164UB-Radio-CD-Tuner-Illumination/dp/B00OTIDCSG/ref=sr_1_11?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1444244224&sr=1-11&keywords=car+radio http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-CDX-G2000UI-Player-iPhone-Control/dp/B00GUD98JA/ref=sr_1_8?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1444244224&sr=1-8&keywords=car+radio I would really appreciate any advice you have on fitting these radios! I realise I need to cut away the three sections on the dash and a fascia. Thanks allot, Charlie Wood ************************************************UPDATE***************************************************** I have found out the information required and ordered a radio.

  14. Hiya, our car has a sat nav built in but no digital radio. Does anyone know if you can have both? If so how can I go about adding a digital radio to the car?
  15. ive done some research on the internet prior to choosing the correct brand of replacment induction filter, most would assume that the best choice to be K&N but i have found Green Cotton Air filter to have the edge over K&N or PiperCross due to Green's manufacturing process being more hands on instead of automated manufacturing. the green filter in bonded with precision to the frame of the filter the results are more air flow in to the filter where K&N use an automated process resulting in over use of bonding glue to the frame of the filter which can spread across the panel restricting flow and performance of the filter leaving is performing less than K&N's original prototype that they use to get their gains figures from. but anyways enough of me blabbing on about the differences, because the information is available on other websites for all to view without me re-typing it lol. to purchase a Green Cotton performance induction filter for your ford and feel the difference for yourself log on to http://www.priracing....php/144/1/ford and get 10% Discount off your Green Cotton Performance filter by using the code FORDOWNERSCLUB10 you can also get 20% Discount off any Ritchbrook branded stock by entering Discount Code: RICHBROOK20 both offers are eclusive to members of fordownersclub.com special thanks to Ross at Priracing for this kind offer. So here's whats in the box for the focus 1.6TDCi induction filter. Ive decided to upgrade the standard ford induction filter in my 1.6TDCi focus to a free flowing high performance induction filter. and since i was changing it ive decided to create this guide to show others what is envolved aswell as report on the performance difference between the stock and aftermarket direct replacment air box filter. fitting time takes around 15-20 minutes, Tools required are an 8mm socket and a pair of rubber latex gloves So Open the bonnet, remove the battery cover if fitted. and using the 8MM socket loosen the 4 bolts that are holding the lid of the induction box in place. please note the bolts do not pull free/seperate from the lid, they remove from the bottom section but stay inside the lid section by design, Once lid has been removed you will see your heavy stock ford filter, hopfully ford wont have bent your stock filter when putting it in their as they have done with mine. place your hand on the top end of the filter and pull upwards to remove it. once removed, ensure the lid from the induction box aswell as the 8mm socket are stored off of the engine bay and close the bonnet if you are planning to wait a couple of minutes prior to fitting the new filter. this will help prevent any contamination getting in to the induction pipes.
  16. I have a 55 plate fiesta zetec 1.2 and the radio has stopped working. I was driving with the radio on and stopped for ten mins. When I turned the car back on the radio would not work anymore. - It still lights up so I presume it still has power. - I have checked all the fuses behind the glove box and the cigarette lighter fuse had blown which I have now replaced. Any ideas what could be the problem? I've been told that the radio has a fuse in the back of it. Is this true? Thanks...

  18. Sony 6000Cd Upgrade

    I'm new to the site and need some info! I've just got a 2010 focus estate fitted with a Sony 6000cd stereo. been trawling the net trying to find a possible replacement stereo with a usb port and came across the ford music box usb cable. Has anyone had one fitted and what's the audio quality like?? also does anyone know of a stereo with a usb port the same shape as the 6000cd that would be a direct replacement and still have all the steering wheel controls/voice activation?? has the DAB version got a usb and could it be a replacement?? I don't really want to go to the hassle of replacing the whole facia ect... Any info would be a great help!!!
  19. Hello all, I have a Travelpilot NX Sat Nav/Audio unit installed in my 2008 S-Max which is no longer reading the maps correctly from the DVD. I have the 5.3 version of the software installed and the 2012 TomTom map DVD. I've ejected the disc and checked that it is clean and have tried resetting the unit but it has not improved matters. So my questions to the forum are: 1) Where is the best place to get the unit repaired/serviced? (In the Midlands preferably) 2) How much should I expect it to cost? 3) Can my 2008 unit be upgraded to include DAB radio or Bluetooth audio? 4) How do I get it out of the dashboard??? Many thanks in advance!
  20. I rather stupidly tried to remove the radio using a coat hanger rather than waiting for the actual keys. Part of the coat hanger has now broken and is stuck inside one of the holes. What do I do?
  21. I was getting mechanical work done to car and upon collecting car I noticed the radio wont turn on its just a frozen screen here is a picture http://postimg.org/image/lddtmgx0t/
  22. S-max 2007 6006cdc Radio

    Hi I have tried most things (I think) to enable Blue Tooth on this radio. Is it possible to do it? Thanks SirGuy
  23. Hello forum members :) I'm a new driver and just recently bought a new Ford KA Zetec 2015 model. Really loving the car, perfect for city driving. My only problem is the Ford Audio system is really frustrating to use - not sure if other people have found this? There are so many different versions and finding information and support has been really tricky. I looked at the audio system before buying the car and made sure it had Bluetooth so I could stream audio directly from my android phone. For anyone with a bluetooth speaker this is normally a pretty simple thing to do. Alas, all I can do is precariously play mp3 files that are stored on the phone as a usb device or cd by plugging in over the usb. On the specifications for the car it clearly states "using a Bluetooth connection, you can also stream music wirelessly from a smartphone or mp3 player to your car radio". But how? There are no instructions on how to do this in the manual. I am close to getting a radio transmitter! Which is something you might expect to have to do in an old car, not a new model with Bluetooth. Any suggestions would be really useful to myself and maybe others as well. I have tried: 1/ I have connected to the cars FORD AUDIO bluetooth using the system menu, which is navigated by talking to Miss Ford. 2/ I can make calls over the Bluetooth easy once connected so it is working. 3/ When connected over the blutooth I have tried pressing the CD button (which changes the source) but it says NO SRC, unless I'm connected over usb at which point it says MEDIA. 4/ When connected over MEDIA I have tried playing Spotify but it simply does not work, Media only let's me play existing MP3's. 5/ I have tried all the system menus for the Media Player but none of them are settings for connecting directly in order to stream music. Thanks :D :D

  25. Hi all, I am new here and I have recently bought a second hand 2011 Fiesta. I would like to know if the 2011 fiesta have radio code? I asked from the dealer I bought with and he said the new fiesta does not have radio code. Can someone confirm it? Thanks.
