In Topic: Zetec S Or Titanium 1.0 Ecoboost 125?? (Mk7.5)

And whilst dab radio would be nice, I really don't like the layout of all those buttons compared to the standard radio

 

 

You can have DAB without switching to the cluttered Sony headunit. Looks the same as the standard radio.

forogt to say does the zetec s have dab radio? 

 

When I bought last October DAB was an option, not standard.

Don't know if it has changed since then.

house pices in scotland are cheap avarage house price up here is about 80-100k for 3bed

 

 

Average house price for a 3 bed house in Scotland is waaaaaay more than £80-100k...

 

Take a look at this link:

Average asking price of a 3 bedroom is £153k (and rising).

 

I would echo what other people have said about saving the money to get the house first. Secure a mortgage before the interest rates start going up.


In Topic: Ecoboost 1.0 Tuning Possibilities = More Powerrrr!!!!

Guys, I heard that Ford is going to launch a new edition of the fiesta ecoboost which is going to have 140PS. Is this true? Does anyone know anything about this?

 

I heard that from a legit magazine and is saying that will be launched on July 2014. That means in a month from now... Thing is that I can't find anything in the web :S

 

There was talk a while ago about Ford releasing a mk7.5 equivalent to the mk7 Metal/S1600. This upped the power of the 1.6 from 120PS to 134PS, so a rise of 125PS to 140PS from the 1.0T would be believeable. The Metal/S1600 was fairly successful so it wouldn't be too surprizing if Ford decided to do something like this again.

This is just conjecture though, I dont have facts to back up anything...


In Topic: Automatic Headlights Too Sensitive ?

12 June 2014 - 11:07 AM

I find the auto-lights pretty good although I wouldn't really care if they were on all the time.

I leave for work at 6:15 each morning and when the sun is low in the sky there can be a lot of glare but also a lot of shadows cast by objects at the side of the road. Going between these light and dark areas can lead to quite awkward visibility so if having the lights on helps someone see me, I'm quite happy to have them on.

 

I have to say that I think the auto-wipers are garbage though, so I just disabled them in favour of intermittent wipe. The ones I've had in previous cars have been far superior. I think the auto pack on the ZS is worth getting for the auto-dimming rear view mirror alone though.
