Standard halogen headlights on mine, no washers, no self leveling... lights are auto though, which i think is a standard titanium feature.

Stranger still, that you have the same spec car as me, yours is 2 years newer, yet you don't have the low fluid warning as standard :huh:

How's that work then? :wacko:

God knows mate. Just been out to check the car after filling the washer fluid and the warning light came on after a few seconds so it looks like I'll have to turn that back off. So a basic feature doesn't even exist on a Titanium spec, what's the point in buying that spec?!

Yeah, I have the auto headlights too. I sometimes wonder why my Titanium is different. It doesn't have a body colour rear spoiler, the Titanium badge is in the recess where the side indicators would be on a standard spec car, not a badge on the back. It doesn't have a quickclear windscreen. It does have half-leather seats.

No quickclear? :huh: 6 gears though? Auto wipers etc? That's a strange one regarding the side repeaters... :wacko: Are your side repeaters housed in the mirrors instead? That would explain that badge...

No heated front windscreen, no heated window washers, has auto lights, auto wipers, auto dimming rear view mirror, indicators in mirrors, 6spd gearbox, dual climate control, half leather seats, electric windows all around, premium sound system.

i have a 06 plate 1.8tdci zetec climate and it doesnt have this feature.

bear with me.

on that picture i can see it is a petrol variant (8k revs). now mine is diesel. is this feature down to this? a bit more info on cars with and without is needed. but that russian software is a good find...shame i dont have the nutz to do this...

Are we all ready for the next exciting instalment from Ford UK? Yes?? are you ready??

Quote.....

Dear Mr Hesketh,


Thanks for your response.


I have spoken with the product specialist who has advised that without having direct access to your vehicle, there is no way that we can confirm this either way. Therefore I would recommend taking your vehicle to your local Ford dealership so they can confirm whether you have this feature or not.

I hope this information has helped. If you do have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact us.

Confirmed, Ford havnt a !Removed! clue about their cars. THey have the VIN and reg of my car and still cant get an answer except go to Ford dealer and ask..... What and expect them to do this for Free, I think not. Who is this phantom product specialist??

On another note, I find it amazing that some titaniums have no heated front screen, arnt they meant to be the top spec trim level?

If this washer jet feature is only fitted to petrols, then words will really fail me, whats up with diesels. My spec is almost idential to artscot, except the dimming mirror is manual. Everything else the same, but its a 1,8TDCi.

Anyone any ideas what I should reply back to Ford???

Cheers

I think my reply would be immediately removed by the moderators but the safest words to mention are "!Removed!" and "Elbow".

it really should be a simple answer if its on the zetec climate then it should be on the higher trim levels petrol or diesel the guy at my work has an 07 plate and he doesnt have this feature either .

as i said ford dont have a clue should it be n the cars and its been left out? did they think no one would notice? who knows but i would be asking why one car has it and another doesnt and if i had the titanium ide be asking why i dont have these features.........though i know the answer it will be because you get other features instead ie 6 speed instead of 5 premium sound system instead of basic etc

I activated this today on my 58 plate facelift titanium 1.8 TDCi with a full washer. Immediately told me it was low, so i obviously am missing the sensor. :(

That's what happened to me, I filled it up just to be sure but no joy so disabled it today.
