Posted by Lenny on 21 February 2015 - 11:08 PM

Girlfriend dropped my phone today and screen's shattered and it's £50 to buy out my contract now...
So, android here I come! Is ther a FOC app for android? If so, does it actually work?

There is but in my opinion its designed by vauxhall lol i dont use it atall,
My phone cost me 30 euro 3" android based alkatel pay as you go with vodafone,
Ive been using it for all internet access since december 2013 and still going strong today,
Done guides and everything on here with it since 2013 and it only cost me 30 euro :)

Also, my rear arches are catching the tyres & I'm determined to keep the axle spacers fitted.. So out comes the hammer... And the arches ;)

Pick up an arch roller on ebay,
Bolt on to the hub instead of the wheel and rolls out the arch mate,

Sounds ok to me, never posted to Northern Ireland before though, so you'll have to find the courier company for me. :)

same as a uk address mate has a post code and everything same as shipping within the uk,
Its parcel motel, they will receive it on my behalf then ship it to republic, works out cheaper than shipping directly ill pm you address.

Parcel2go.com may be easiest for you,
Just package it up,
Weigh it on bathroom scales and measure it,
Enter details on there website to receive a range of quotes,
Select cheapest quote,
Pay via PayPal using funds i will send you,
They then give you a barcode to print and attach to the parcel,
The selected courier will call and collect the parcel from your house,
I then get an automated email to say its been collected.

#457240 Ford Focus Mk3, Sub, Amp & Speakers Upgrade

I've spotted the ST side skirts which come pre-painted to you cars colour it would just be figuring out how to remove the old ones and fit these [url="""]http://www.ebay.co.u...=item2589b7d0a2[/url] 

That's a good price for sprayed parts mate,
Not sure what the setup is on the mk3 but on my mk2 i had to remove the existing black strips by taking out some Torx screws and clips,
Then using the same Torx to hold the skirts




Reading over some forums people have suggested the Philips X-Treme Vision for the headlights. Also lots of people have said to avoid the LEDs for the parking lights due to flickering and not lasting very long.

I can vouch for the T10 led parking bulbs i linked you to in previous post, I've got a set fitted over three years now and still 100%




There's a lot of debate on all forums regarding Philips vs. Osram,
Philips have fingers in many pies, which in my opinion means they don't put much R&D in to items as its not there sole bread and butter,
Osram make bulbs its all they do,
Its there reputation and i personally favour them for that.
I don't get involved in debates personally some people just cant be helped lol i put advise out there for others and respond to questions when asked but i tend not to get involved in senseless debates in situations like that i stick to my own advise and walk away.
Same when others begin throwing advise; saves me time and energy if someone else wants to take over lol

Is it possible to change the black trim on the rear bumper only? 

I'm not sure what sort of setup is on the Mk3 weather its a case of swapping out diffusers on the bumper or if its like the mk2 where the panel fits over the stock bumper.

#457218 Help Hard-Wiring Dashcam

Posted by Lenny on 21 February 2015 - 08:47 PM

Ok I'll give that a try in the morning. My next question is about how the fuse piggy back is meant to work. Am I right in thinking I need to take out the instrument cluster fuse, put the piggy back thing in its place, and then connect the fuse to the piggy back so it also has power? And on the picture below, does it matter which slots I connect the fuse to, because it looks like there are 2 ways I can connect it?

Yes remove fuse from fuse board,
Put it in to the bottom slot of the piggy back adaptor,

The top slot on the piggy back is the fuse for the dash cam.

I'll have a look in the manual, and I want it only on ignition, otherwise it's going to fill up most of the memory card with videos of parked cars lol.

Instrument cluster is the one you need to plug in to then mate,

Posted by Lenny on 21 February 2015 - 07:33 PM

Cheers Lenny I'll have a look. Maybe the fuses are different in the Fiesta because it was only getting power with ignition. Will there be a fuse box diagram in the manual?

Should be in the manual mate if its not on the inside lid of fuse cover,
There has to be reference somewhere,
So you want it constant live or only on ignition?

#457174 Help Hard-Wiring Dashcam

Posted by Lenny on 21 February 2015 - 07:08 PM

So here's what's happened so far. Took the car into a garage to have the dash cam wired in yesterday morning, and all seemed to be spot on. It took them only a couple of hours, cost only £29 including an adjustment to my headlights (which has improved them massively).
Then this morning, I noticed my rear wiper wasn't working, so straight away I assumed they did something wrong. Went straight back to them and they had a look, I think they said the fuse for the wiper was plugged into the piggy back fuse I gave them, and it wasn't getting power, if that makes sense. So they plugged the fuse into another slot, and he said it's working. The wiper is working but I forgot to check the camera at the time  :iim:
So the camera isn't getting power now. I think I'll have a look at the fuse box in the morning, so if anyone could explain what the problem might be that would be a huge help. Also could someone please point me to where I can get a diagram of what my fuse box should look like, where the fuse piggy back should be plugged in to, and where the earth should be connected. Hopefully I can get this sorted, don't want to go back a 3rd time because it's not a local garage, although they are near where my parents live.
Here are the parts I supplied them with to do the hard wiring:
Edit: I need the camera to only get power when ignition is on, which was the case after they first did the job.

Hi phil mate,
See my install guide here: http://www.fordowner...-mk25/?p=438442

PLug the piggyback in to the instrument cluster fuse,
This is live on ignition only.
Wipers are constant live power,

Piggy back fuse configuration,
Top fuse is for the dash cam,
Bottom fuse closest to the fuse board is the original fuse that was in the location.

Next time save yourself 30 quid and email me man :)

It's black. :)
Will sell it, just have to check it's all there first.

Wouldnt need cables mate just the joypad and console if your selling although would be handy to have house cables hooked up in the tv cabnet would make it easily transferable as id only use it for long distance holiday trips to keep the kids quiet.
And the odd game of GTA SanAndreas :lol:

Cheers Lenny, best price I could find.....and garage that fitted them said they wouldn't have been able to sell them that cheap, if done directly.
Only done about 20 miles on the tyres so far, but seem good to me. :D

You will get your moneys worth out of them for sure lol
Id appreciate vote here lol:

Posted by Lenny on 21 February 2015 - 03:36 PM

Avon ZV5 on mine as well and the difference in noise levels is noticeable. Best bit that is that I got a bit of a discount from my local Ford dealer. Well worth it. 

 The ZV5 gives better noise suppression compared to its predecessor the ZZ3
Shocked to hear dealership supplied such a quality brand name tyre then give you discount,
They usually stock Brabus tyres and sell them for 30 euro more than a garage.

Got mine through Piston heads - Tyre giant. £326 fully fitted for all 4. :)

Mine were 400 pound for all four 18" ZV5 fitted at local Tyre specialist orderd them in for me in two days couldnt have imported them cheaper myself :)
How are you finding them?

Thought I'd fit the mist jets. :)DSC_0039_zpsnnkptm6n.jpgDSC_0040_zpsudbtva7q.jpg
10 minutes later, all done. (Thanks to Lenny's guide). :)DSC_0041_zpsnzv0j0ih.jpg
Haven't tried them yet, as the car is all clean lol

Nicd upgrade on the jets too.
