*** Fiesta Titanium 63 Plate "!st Service"

30 October 2014 - 06:00 PM



I've just had a reminder from my local dealer that my 1st Service is due soon (1 Year old on 26th November), and I would like to know what price I should expect to pay?


Also, due to a back injury just before I picked my car last November, I've not really driven the car and, consequently it has only 450 miles on the clock - now I know they should change the oil and filter on the service but, given the extremely low mileage, does anyone actually think they will change these service items?


I'm also thinking that over the last year, there may have been software updates available (especially for 'Ford Sync' and Apple IOS 8.1) and I would like to know if I should mention this and if they will apply them FOC?  I think that they should apply any available updates FOC; especially during the first year.

*** Automatic 12V Tyre Pressure Pumps

28 October 2014 - 10:22 AM



I first used 12v tyre pressure pumps around 30 odd years ago and, to be honest, I did not take to them because they were very noisy and took ages to put just a few lbs into the tyre, so I went back to the good old foot pump.


I'm just wondering if these 12v tyre pressure pumps have improved and are less noisy and are pretty good at pumping up tyres without taking ages?


Any help from members who could recommend a make that they have found to be pretty good, would be appreciated.

Remove Iphone 5 And Contacts From System

16 October 2014 - 09:07 AM

Hi, I've just set up my new iPhone 6 and would like to know if I need to remove my previous iPhone 5 and contacts before connecting to the system?

If so, can any member give advice on how to do this?

Fiesta Mk7.5 - Removing Bird !Removed! Stain

21 August 2014 - 03:27 PM



My car needed a clean and had bird poo on the roof so I gave it a wash and polish but and I can still see stains on the paintwork where the bird poo was.


Is there a product available that will remove these stains?
