#457964 Help Hard-Wiring Dashcam

Posted by Mike77 on 23 February 2015 - 11:26 PM

Cannot for the life of me work out how to copy and paste a link from ebay onto here from my phone, but ive just bought a dash cam, and hard wired it into place. Its a Mio Mivue 538 Deluxe, the Deluxe model comes with free lifetime fixed speed camera updates. Done a few miles with it. And got to say its very impressive. The picture when viewed on a laptop or tv is VERY good. Easily able to read number plates, road signs etc. Not the cheapest model on the market. Seen it in halfords at £150 but secured one on ebay for £122, it's a very neat looking unit and very capable to. Didn't want to plump for a cheaper one off ebay as my dad has one fitted in his car. But even though his 'says' HD 1080p recording, when viewing them both on a laptop, the difference is worlds apart. Even has its own software to view your recordings with GPS, showing time/date/speed. All in all, an excellent bit of kit amd it my opinion, worth every penny......

Try pulling the nozzle of the pump out a fraction... should cure it. You'll get to the point where you know exactly where it needs to be.


#433542 Should Indicators Make Tick Tick Sound When On?

Posted by Mike77 on 02 December 2014 - 04:50 PM

Yes there should be an audible noise to accompany the flashing. Very much doubt there will be anything in the settings on the car as its a base model mk6 and that kind of trickery wasn't really around back then. Probably a relay problem or something similar.


#420845 Mk6 Hids Help?

You need a 'bi-xenon' kit mate.

Also remember on my mk6, when I fitted these, for some reason it messed with the radio reception.. Heard others had the same problem. Only when the lights were on though. Just thought I'd give you the heads up.

This is correct.... I thought the same when I got my titanium, but rest assured its all good.

Not tried or seen these in action big Dave, but you can't really use the fact that normal hid kits take approx 2-3 seconds to reach optimum output lol. Most people haven't even took off the handbrake in that time.

Agree with Nathan,,, got them bulbs in mine, and they are the brightest, most white sidelight bulb you'll ever come across.


#387522 Zetec S Or Titanium 1.0 Ecoboost 125?? (Mk7.5)

Posted by Mike77 on 19 July 2014 - 10:06 AM

I'd go for the titanium and add the bodykit,,, best of both worlds then.

Golden rule,,, if it ain't got a turbo, it ain't worth doing.


#371367 What Can I Do To Improve Power In 12 Plate Fiesta 1.25?

Posted by Mike77 on 04 June 2014 - 09:34 PM

Seriously, you will NEVER get near ST power from your car, and any noticeable changes in performance will cost mega money, even then its not going to be much, and may not be reliable. Much better swapping cars, than throwing ( in my opinion) wasted money at a car that is never gonna be quick.




#368095 130K Too Much On A Petrol?

Posted by Mike77 on 26 May 2014 - 01:38 PM

There is no real way of telling to be honest, if it's been well maintained theres no reason it couldn't do another 130k, but either way it's getting to the point were expensive parts may start to fail, and it seems to happen one after another. The mileage alone would be enough to make me skip that ad and move onto the next.


#364248 1.3 Finesse Remap?

Posted by Mike77 on 14 May 2014 - 12:07 PM

Don't waste your money on a remap.... Without a turbo, it's a waste of money.

Doesn't it also help put out engine fires?  I either read that or made it up...

Think you made it up lol.

They are not a problem if fitted on cars with projector headlights....... If it's just a normal lense then the light is scattered and thats where they get there bad reputation from.
