Well, the beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, therefore there is not much I can say about the Insignia :D

Just the standard suspension, the only thing I added was parking sensors and metallic paint. I can't believe a car of this size doesn't come with parking sensors as standard.
Sent from my iPad using Ford OC

I've chosen Frozen White as the color but I would have liked also a black wagon...but my wife is not that happy with having a big black car :D

Remap would be best and yeah the guff Van be blanked and removed but the engines have to be tamed in design. Remap opens more fun but compared to the days of the v6 etc, the power post remap is just on par with the old cars whereas if you remap one of those you get triple awesome.


Let's just forget those days :D

Petrol only has autobox? That is odd.... To be honest I recon you could blind buy the car and still be more than happy!


The better petrol engines come with automatic gearbox. I am also pretty sure that I would be happy but you, when you buy a car like this you need to be sure that it will satisfy your needs for a few good years ;)

#136985 Fiesta 1.25 Or 1.4 - Petrol Versions

Posted by Tato on 22 July 2011 - 07:08 PM

Both the 1.25 and the 1.4 engines share the same bore diameter.

The only difference to make up the CU is the Stroke on the 1.4 is slightly longer.

The 60ps and 82ps 1.25 engines have a 71.9 mm Stroke and a 76.5 mm Bore Diameter
The 96ps Engine has a 76 mm Stroke and a 76.5 mm Bore Diameter

The 1.4 PFI Sigma 96ps engine has advantages over the smaller 1.25 engine.

According to Etis the 1.4 engine is equipped with Port Fuel Injection whereas the 1.25 has Electronic Fuel Injection.

Now According to my knowledge Both are electronic but the main advantage is that the 1.4 has its injectors closer to the inlet ports on the engine.

So to Summerise, There are two Main Advantages for the 1.4 (1388 96ps) (Maybe Three)

  • Port Fuel Injection which is also Electronic
  • Slightly longer stroke (The Length of travel in MM that the piston has to move (Verticaly) inside the bore of each cylinder)
  • It could also posess an altered or different throttle body
I hope the Class has not fallen ASLEEP lol :blink:

Port Fuel injection has advantages :-

A type of fuel injection with at least one injector mounted in the intake port(s) of each cylinder.

Usually the injector is mounted on the air intake manifold close to the port.

Port fuel injection improves fuel distribution and allows greater flexibility in intake-manifold design, which can contribute to improved engine breathing.

#130674 Disable Esp On 5Dr Zetec 1.6 Tdci

Posted by Tato on 06 June 2011 - 09:57 PM

I agree,

as your the owner of your car, you paid for it you should be in control, if you want wheel spin without over ride you should easily be able to have it, done my head in last winter ESP caused me to skid more than ever,

Well...I guess I will just have to live with it now...
It's good that I don't have so bad winter where I will drive the car :D

Thanks mate for sharing!

Any link where you've bought the camera from?

By the way, you replaced also the mirror right?

#124947 ''secret Hole'' Ideas?

Posted by Tato on 29 April 2011 - 06:20 PM

Fitted a push to open/push to close on mine. Involved cutting and shutting, as well as sanding down the lid so give me another 1mm - 1.5mm of room. Looks factory when closed.

Fits a TomTom Go 550 perfectly.

Also modified my satnav mount and secured it to the dash by friction (rubberised dash is pretty awesome for 'wedging' stuff into without damage/marks).

I fed the wire where the ambient lighting kit fits and then through the bracket that holds the glovebox closed (removed it, threaded wire, refitted).

Saved alot of headaches on the 3000 mile trip we took across Europe, I would have hated to have kept sticking/unsticking from the Windscreen then taking it in the hotels with us.

Looks good...I will try it myself...

#124796 Black Roof...

Posted by Tato on 28 April 2011 - 06:28 PM

works for me, but only if your doing it in gloss black as I think fake carbon is rather chavvy :D

Gloss black like the one in the picture, I guess, right?
No, I don't want the carbon look...I somehow want the panorama roof feeling :D at least from the outside :P
