it says 'max ac' on my mk 3 too, switches the ac on as soon as your turn the dial there

kind of annoying when you dont want it on! it switches back on automatically some time afterwards too so you're constantly turning it off! <_<

i have that extra click on mine,
i can feel it locking in to the setting and yes the AC comes on automaticlly when turned all the way to the full cold,

well yeah... but I wanted to be helpful for once! hahaha

yeah, you climb back into your boot and think about how we should "think before we speak" and "if you haven't got anything nice to say, then don't say it" ..... or you'll be sleeping with the fishes :P :o :lol:

lol thank you lenny :) yeah that's just the aux cable, it's just temporary untill I take preee's advice to take it to ford and have the stereo upgraded to play my ipod through the bluetooth, I assumed if I could talk through it I could play music, this wasn't the case, generally the cable is kept in the glove box anyway but I had my younger brother wanting to "play DJ" earlier. <_<


What method worked for yourself with the circles? Did you use a hairdryer?

ive used 2 techniques so far for the circles and thats when youve applied the film heat slightly the circles and run youre finger round the edge giving you a clear outline then use a craft knife to cut these out or cut the inside of the circles like a pie then fold over

yeah, preee said to heat the circles with my trusty hairdryer then i just used my fingers to press into the hole to dent it while it was cooling, after its stretched I just cut it out, don't get me wrong the back of the fascia looks TERRIBLE haha but you can't see it and I was actually admiring my handy work on the drive back from work a minute ago, it looks really decent and I'd recommend it to anyone :D

youve done a good job there and thats one of the more difficult parts so anything else will be easier. the trick is where to cut and fold for example the hazard bit at the top its easier to make lots of little cuts all the way round then fold but its trial and error.

i have to say dont go all carbon keep a mix of the silver and carbon too much spoils it in my opinion

hey, thank you :D yeah it was tricky, nearly gave up at one point but now it's done and looks good, clean finish etc I'm pleased with it, I won't be adding any more carbon to the car, like you said and I agree, it looks better with a mix :D

I guess it's down to personal taste , i have done radio surround , gear lever trim , start button , steering wheel trim and glove box handle , all look sweet in mine. Just leaving enough Chrome for my eyes.
Not everyone will agree how we Mod our cars but as long as that person is happy then all's good :)
