#274251 Best Colour Fiesta?

Posted by b1g_dav3 on 11 July 2013 - 07:33 PM

I hated my Molton Orange ST at first, was like to the salesman, 'Well this sucks doesn't it?' but it's really grown on me.

I'll vote for rainwater, with occasional puddle splashing, followed by driving quickly to avoid streaks :P

#272315 Getting Sick Of Sync, Looking For Help To Install Aftermarket.

Posted by b1g_dav3 on 02 July 2013 - 08:54 PM

Not gonna lie, Sync is the worst thing I've ever had on a car, and that's saying something when I had a car that on every journey the brakes would set on fire if you'd been on a Motorway.

#272029 Forza 5 Or Driveclub ??

GT6 won't be on PS4, it's already been stated that it'll be PS3 only, though you'll be able to buy it to download for PS4.

#271989 Pirelli Or Silverstone?

The tyres aren't designed to fail after so long, they soften the compound to add extra grip and decrease tyre life. Trouble is when something like a sharp kerb comes, because the rubber is soft they take a beating. 


I remember a few years back where a lot of teams pulled out of the Indy circuit, because the tyres were shredding due to the track having some sort of extra grip material, but when the cars run in reverse it shredded the tyres, Bridgestone knew this because Firestone their sister company had experience of it and sent stronger tyres, those on Michelin's suffered.

I even see voice texting as being an issue, as it's still distracting because you'll still check to see if it's right, that second you're looking at the phone BAM you're now half tree.

As said on the other thread; hit one of those covers that are there when they remove the security bollards, pulled the bumper completely off at one side and most of the other, just a handful of clips holding it on, so pulled it off for coming home with and pulled the bits off that weren't broken :P

They're excellent, had one on my prefacelift and was a really nice addition.


Unlike my 'everyday' Mini that has practically no shift at all -.-

#267937 I Cleaned My Car! History Has Been Made! - Picture Thread

Posted by b1g_dav3 on 14 June 2013 - 10:14 PM

My hard work has been destroyed, I decided it was a good idea to go round a mini rally stage of mud, and the track car is covered in filth from transport :c spent another 4 hours today cleaning the track car >.<

#267389 How Many Miles Do You Get From A Full Tank Of Fuel.

Posted by b1g_dav3 on 12 June 2013 - 07:50 PM

On my Facelift (Mk7.5) diesel, I got out of my last tank 609 miles :P good times indeed.

#267222 I Cleaned My Car! History Has Been Made! - Picture Thread

Posted by b1g_dav3 on 11 June 2013 - 10:36 PM

Well the Fiesta will have about 300 miles put on at weekend minimum, and the track car will be on a trailer for about 100 of that, so I'm guessing neither will be too clean, took 9 hours to do the both of them >.<


I do agree with the 16's, I prefer them over the 17's really and didn't think I would have originally so much, just I didn't want another car with buckling wheels :P

Well, I thought I may as well seeing I was cleaning the track car for the charity as well, so here's a few pictures! Pretty monumental time in history, seeing in the 17 months of ownership of my last Fiesta I washed it twice, very quickly, and it was still kinda mucky after. Thinking of writing a mini-review soon when I hit 5,000 miles :P


Can't say I'm the most artistic when it comes to photographing cars, or getting rid of number plates on paint >_>
