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

13 June 2014 - 06:12 AM

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.

This would give the noise you are after but I implore you not to get one....

Many people would laugh... I would be one of them.

Need to make sure I do change before I reach my mileage allowance though
 

 

 

Your mileage allowance is irrelevant if you are trading the car in, other than affecting the PX valuation.

Going over your agreed mileage only matters if you intend to hand the car back when you will be charged for being over.


In Topic: Getting An St

04 March 2014 - 11:36 AM

I used to have an Electric Orange Focus ST so I kinda like orange cars... but I really don't like the Molten Orange thats available on the Fiesta ST.

 

If I were buying one, it would definitely be Blue.
