Westms2 you may be able to help please. Have you got a sensor on your windscreen by the rear view mirror? If so what does it do? No auto lights or wipers but it seems to have the sensors fitted inside. Odd the 1.0 ecoboost didn't have this. Off topic I know but thread killed already.

So the car has finally arrived at the dealer :). I'm picking it up on Wednesday, and they've asked me if I want the paint protection for £195 (usually £295). I'm thinking I'll not bother and just try and take good care of the paint. Does anyone think I should get the protection? Anyone had it before and would recommend it?

I wouldn't, I've heard that if you want protection, it's much better to get a professional detailer to do it.

I wouldn't waste your money. Spend it on some good quality cleaning stuff and wax and do it yourself

Not sure myself but not for the screen heater. I wondered if it is for the DAB radio?

Investigation is now required. Can't ask Ford as they charge £1 PM to call their technical support line..........

I agree, the paint protection did look like a wast of money so I told them I didn't want it. It will probably have 2 layers of polish on it anyway, one from the factory and another when the dealer valets it, right?

 

Another thing I'm trying to figure out is GAP insurance, does anyone have any recommendations? I'm looking at ALA at the moment, thinking about going for a 3 year deal which is about £110. Does that sound like a good deal?

Don't count on it bud! When I picked my car up it was supposed to have had a full valet. Looked more like someone had taken it on rally!

Aw lad like I said I know its not a Ferrari read the thread you whopper. Go an wash ya ZS
:)

 

been reading this thread, and your comments...you may well be a sound guy, but do you realise you come across as a very sad little man?

 

I do hope ford bring out an Fiesta RS, purely so one can pull up alongside you one day. I like fast cars as much as anyone, but a guy who views it all as 'mine is faster than yours therefore yours is crap' wouldn't even get past first base. cringeworthy attitude!

Haha, lets just hope that the staff at the dealer resist the urge to take it for a joy ride. That must be very tempting though :)

I wouldn't let them near it. I have a service contract for mine which includes a full valet. I will be checking if that is done by a professional (I doubt it) or the latest work placement lad in which case they will be told to leave well alone. 

 

GAP insurance is definitely a worthy investment. I went with these guys they are really helpful just give them a call  https://www.directga...CFQcewwodpHsAbw

Check the mileage when you collect it, should be in single figures.
