You've got to think car's aren't designed to have things stuck in their window channels. There's always bound to me little niggles. Is the bulging really that bad? Will it ever break anything? Probably not. How long do you plan on keeping the car? I've had deflectors on cars for years and there's never been any issues
Yeah I know what you mean, It's super stretchy. The 3M stuff is the best, but it's 2 -3 x more expensive than the cheaper ebay stuff. You do have to be careful not to over stretch the vinyl though as it will shrink over time, meaning you'll have to re do it
You don't need clips on the heko ones a such. The design is the same as climair. The clips create a gap in the window lining so the deflector doesn't rub against the window. I'm sure a few searches would back me up on this as I have learnt through experience. Windows were scratched really badly with climairs on my old car. I now have Hekos that have been fitted for over a year and there's no marks at all. Heko are also significantly cheaper
I like the idea but I'm in the boat that it doesn't work, sorry! To me it looks like a car that's had a replacement bonnet from the scrappy and needs painting . If that were my car I'd take it off and wrap the roof and wing mirrors in black. That would look the bomb! [emoji106]
Does it happen throughout the whole journey? As in wet conditions the brake discs rust over and you often get the scratching noise when the rust is being cleared off the discs. This always happens when I wash my car. Then after about 5 minutes the rust clears and the noise stops
I had a mk5 gti and got rid of it as I hated it for my current mk7 metal and the difference is just unbelievable in grip alone I can corner alot faster than I could in the gti and even raced one over two roundabouts to which I left in the dust but straights he would of dominated the spec is much better in the fiesta only thing the golf had that my fiesta doesn't is dual zone climate but thats not really an issue and the golf didnt even have bluetooth

The mk5 golf entered production in 2003 and finished in 2009 lol, no wonder it doesn't have the mod cons etc, your Fiesta is like 4 years newer!
Unfortunately I don't agree that ford is on the same level, being faster doesn't make a car better.
Reliability aside Vw interior quality, layout and feel is superior to ford. Look at the mk7 golf dash compared to the mk3 focus. All the buttons and that gloss panel dash does not have the feel of a Vw golf mk7.
Ford wins on performance no doubt and that's not questionable.
Comfort wise Vw suspension is better for British roads in my opinion but it isn't exciting to through around corners like ford is. We may not want to admit it but it isn't just a mind frame, Vw has good resale value and superior body rust quality over ford, the badge carries weight, it all ads up.
If given the choice I would choose a Vw golf gti over a focus st but with my own money I'd buy the St.
It isn't worth getting too heated about it because it all comes down to what the badge is worth, a mclaren badge eats up a lexus badge, a Vw badge eats a ford badge, a ford badge eats a vauxhall badge. Keeping in mind a vxr astra is faster than an ST and looks very good. Where as a gti is "boring" compared to an ST, it's also less fun.
Ford doesn't even offer xenon for the fiesta St, Vw offers it for the polo
Cheers Marc, the videos of that stuff is crazy isn't it! Ordered some dragons breath so hopefully that will be here by this weekend so I can detail the car!

No worries! Fingers crossed, let us know how it goes
Hi, To put it simply, keeping the wheels in showroom condition, like I manage to, is easy. All I use now is a wash and wax, and when they are clean, keep them polished like you would the paintwork. Ordinary car polish that's all! This puts the protective layer on, and stops the roads crap sticking, so each time you clean gets easier too. Now they are on the condition in your pic, you will just have to work at it to get them nice first. Anything that stubborn and I remember I used wonder wheels. Not from my experience, but one of my mates used a little t cut to bring his wheels up. Remember, your dealing with a painted surface here just like the bodywork, not aluminium, and I think the name of our wheels throws people off!
Old Fords do it sideways
You're a brave man using wonder wheels, prolonged use can cause paint to crack on your alloys. Also Polishing your wheels will bring them up nicely but it won't offer any form of protection. Your best bet would be a high temp wax. I use Finish Kare 1000p and simply a blast from the pressure washer is enough to remove all dirt, then a quick rub over with soapy water and wash mitt brings them up as good as new
