In Topic: Windsreen Washer Jets (Front)

08 December 2012 - 04:06 PM

I've got the heated type on the car, bought and fitted the appropriate fan-type no bother without any wiring mods. The jets are a great improvement over the originals - although they do hit the windscreen a little low when at speed. Not a problem as you just wash for longer :)

In the freezing weather they are great! Mind you, this is the first car I've owned with a heated front screen and that is awesome! No more de-icer required...

In Topic: 2.0 Tdci Titanium Fuel Economy 59 Plate Uk

08 December 2012 - 03:11 PM

I've got a 60-plate TitX estate 2.0 163 powershift and I used to get 38mpg round the doors until the fuel vaporiser thingy got replaced under warranty. Now I get 36.5!

Even on a long run on motorways and A-roads I only get 40.2 - which is WAY off the published figures (which I know are generous at best).

Anyone know a decent re-map company in the North East? I'd prefer a re-map instead of a plug-in unit / chip then I don't have to inform the insurance company!

Cheers, thanks for that. Clear film will probably be the way to go. Might as well do all I can to protect the paint!

In Topic: Is There A Hidden Usb Port In A Mk4 Mondeo???

My Titanium X (60 plate about 5 minutes before they fitted the daytime running lamps) has the Sony DAB Radio and only has an AUX 3.5mm audio jack in the glove compartment. i was hoping for the USB too - but I could only find mention of that in the radio that has the Sat Nav built in...

Works great with my daughter's iPod touch, where #7 on the volume is deafening, but my Samsung Galaxy S2 needs to have the radio cranked above 20 to get decent sound. V annoying!

Hope this helps...

incidentally, I'm impressed with the DAB, but I'm sure in FM mode Sony have made it sound crap on purpose!
