No not yet mate. I called them but didn't have any. So I said I'll order one now but they don't take payments over the phone! So lucky for me my TXS happens to be going in for service so I'll order one maybe two and it will be in the next working day. So hopefully by Wednesday it should be fixed. :)

Excellent I thought it might.

Will install tomorrow. I want to fit a illuminated ignition ring. I think I did see a guide for the fiesta. Was easy on focus. Took half hour to do :)

Many thanks for your help.

#415201 Need Help Asap With Alarm. Alarm Will Not Activate Post Elm 327 Update

Posted by footfistart on 30 September 2014 - 11:19 PM

Yeah I gave the micro switch a good greasing with some heavy duty low temp grease from work I had laying around but wd40. i wouldn't mine it you coule sens me a filé over so I can compare if that's ok. my address is ryanbarrimore at yahoo.co.uk. I only noticed this because in the GEM it said what caused the alarm to go off and it said hood ajar so I had a look and the switch was solid. so give it a good grease and exercise the switch and it will be fine. I think in very wet weather or everytime you wash your car is to grease it just to keep mind at rest. I have noticed that since I've done that the alarm will go off sometimes when I open the bonnet and then sometimes it doesn't. Not sure what could be causing that. least I now know the alarm is active and the indicators flash :) Thanks for replies

#394514 Remap In Surrey

Posted by footfistart on 05 August 2014 - 09:15 PM

I am wanting to do that too Dpf gutted and mapped out. I've upgraded the intercooler on my 110. Seems to pull harder and approaching 70mpg. I think it depends on the mapper, the type of map and quality of parts installed. in my case when I get exhaust sorted including Dpf I should get around 150 but that's pushing it though. injectors start to max out then. so I'm aiming for maximum performance whilst having maximum economy. my target is to crack 75mpg. this is mainly motorway driving but I do drive all types of roads though.


#394507 Tdci Intercooler Question

Posted by footfistart on 05 August 2014 - 08:58 PM

Fifty is about right for town usage. And for the extra urban it's about 67 I think don't quote me though. and lenny that's pretty good. that's just about 65mpg. There is always room for improvement. I don't think I'll get much more than 70 maybe 71 before having to drive a lot slower and getting remap.


#394428 Remap In Surrey

Posted by footfistart on 05 August 2014 - 06:33 PM

I don't know any in Surrey but there is a remapped in Farnborough or if you need and exhaust down you can get a remap with it at longlife exhausts in Basingstoke. that's the nearest to me for exhausts as well. I'm sure more people will know mate.


#394422 Tdci Intercooler Question

Posted by footfistart on 05 August 2014 - 06:24 PM

I have cracked 69mpg :) and it's still climbing up. 69.1mpg to be precise. I highly recommend upgrading to everyone :)
