#409820 Power Mirrors In Winter ?

Posted by alexp999 on 15 September 2014 - 07:01 AM

I turned the option off on my Fiesta so I could fold them in when I wanted, but my Focus has no such option.

Only had them get stuck once on the Focus, but once things warm up a bit, you can just hit the button on the door and it tries again.

The overall shape of the mk3 is more reminiscent of the mk1 than the mk2 ever was.

I still think the mk2.5 is nice looking car though, even if it is a bit boxy.

The way I'm financing it, is actually giving me a large chunk of my savings back which I had spent when going from the Fiesta to my current Focus. Got to save up for a deposit for moving out!

 

I intend to keep this one longer though (key word being INTEND, lol).

Yeah no brochure out with official pictures, so I'm hoping that is what the Zetec S will look like, lol.

Still from the description of what was included, I was sold on getting a Zetec S. :)

That's the hope.

 

Only 150PS this time round in the Zetec S, but I'm not too bothered as the 180PS (only available on Tit X) is only 0.3 seconds quicker. From what I have read the power is available lower down on the 1.5, so the 150PS ends up having a bigger power band on the 1.5 than the 1.6 anyway.

 

It is also perfect for my type of journey, the daily commute barely gives the engine a chance to warm up, so the clutched water pump should help. Then it has the power there to go have fun at weekends :D

Nope.

 

I was trying to make it a bit harder by giving less away, but still didn't think it was that difficult, lol.

 

I guess it is easy when you know the answer :lol:




#402437 What Could You Share?

We used to buy in loads of Lithium batteries (like the cells in laptop batteries), only had one from hundreds which caught on fire, "went up like a roman candle" as the boss says, lol.

 

Funniest thing, they were branded TrustFire:lol:
