In Topic: New Mats

11 August 2012 - 07:06 AM

Looking for some mats for our Mk8 Fiesta. It's not a TDCi or anything, and I'd rather have them plain - any suggestions? Does anyone know if Mk7 mats will fit a Mk8?

Mmm... It is a really fiddly job, isn't it? Considering how vulnerable that bit of plastic is, it should be easier to replace! I wonder how much a garage would charge to do it? The screw that goes into the rear section is a particular B*****d....

I guess you may have a point. Not sure if the depreciation is any different - are petrol engined cars easier/harder to sell?

Ah, I didn't know that about DPFs. When I had a diesel before (an old fashioned sort), I was always told that they were good for town driving - and that's why taxis were diesel. Thanks for the heads-up there.

...not much in it. Surprisingly, the titanium econetic came out about 10% less than the Zetec econetic (this was through the ford owners club link and was with Allianz - price nearly double confused.com's Hastings insurance)

Seems to me that the choice is between Titanium Econetic and Zetec Petrol 1.4. Is titanium considered much nicer than Zetec?

Ps - maybe the cheaper insurance for titanium is due to perimeter alarm?
