It's the soap which has me stumped.

 

Don't know that much about car lubricants though.... :(

#397426 My Son's Ordered A Fiesta St3

You'll have to convince your daughter to get a red ST, that would look awesome on the drive away with a blue and white one, lol.

 

I didn't think it was going to be long the way you had been talking. Is he going to get a white engine cover?

A load of models spotted on a transporter in Europe, check out that (possible Zetec S?) red one in the bottom left :D

Someone usually will, I was just trying to say that there is no rule on it.

 

And if you find the right insurer and pay them enough, they'd insure you on anything.




#395479 Ford Finance Advice

Yeah it has had more than a facelift, stiffer front end, revised multi-valve shocks, revised EPAS.

 

Really looking forward to getting one, going from a heavy nosed 2.0 diesel, to a light 1.5 ecoboost with the revised mechanical set up should really notice the difference. I swear I had read every bit of info I can find on it and seen every picture. Never been like this over a car before, no doubt I'll end up paying more as a result but if I get a car I REALLY like, I might actually keep it for 5 years and it will then be cheaper in the long run (at least that is what I keep telling myself).

 

I'm really hoping the Zetec S body kit looks like this, I was never a fan on the original MK3, hence why I got a Tit X and just put the spoiler and grill on it:

I was confused for a second there, thought you meant there was going to be another Fiesta facelift, obviously you meant the Focus. But wouldn't that mean Ford will have an abundance of un-facelifted cars that will be harder to sell, so the prices go down and not up?

 

Edit: unless you mean the prices of the new facelifted car in which case that makes perfect sense.

 

I think they have already been trying to get rid of them hence the massive discounts. Certain colours are already becoming unavailable on the configurator.

 

EDIT:

 

Focus(es?) that is.




#395103 What's This?

Posted by alexp999 on 07 August 2014 - 02:17 PM

I think it is just a hole in the carpet, they just slot in to the vent ducting, not a lot holding them in.

 

When I was trying to find a rattle I had suspected it was them as they are so loose.




#395100 What's This?

Posted by alexp999 on 07 August 2014 - 02:03 PM

They are air vents, to send air from the A/C/blower system to the rear of the car.

 

You should put them back else it will just be blowing at the underside of your seat, lol.

Not strictly true, a newly passed driver should have no issue insuring a 1L ecoboost (turbo charged).

 

Generally you can insure anything with enough money.

 

Just the insurance companies will give ridiculous premiums on big engines and high power output for inexperienced and young drivers.
