Anyone ever used this before? I'm tempted to give this a go, to give the fogs a blue ish tint

Bye Bye Fiesta

07 March 2014 - 11:01 PM

Last year I put a deposit down on a new car. I was starting to fall out of love with my Fiesta.. It had a few niggling problems, costly on petrol and I felt as though I'd grown out of the car and it's looks.
 
I didn't really care for my car like I used, maybe washing it once a month, but I couldn't hand it over in a state so made a good effort in bringing it back to it's former glory....

I couldn't help but smile when the dealer said it's the cleanest car he's ever had in as part exchange!

The car was clean but I wanted to add my own mark to it:
 
Managed to get a decent detail in:
 
1. Wash down alloys with Wheel woolies, EZ brush and a wash mitt
2. Iron X alloys
3. Bilberry wheel cleaner
4. Dry off alloys
5. Seal alloys with 2 coats of Fk1000p
6. Repeat above process on exhaust
7. Snowfoam bodywork
8. Pressure wash off snowfoam and any loose contaminents
9. Iron X bodywork
9. Clay bodywork
11. Dry car with new wolly mammoth drying towel (Amazing!)
12. Hand polish with Megs Ultimate compound (Couldn't be bothered with the DA)
13. 2 coats of Autoglym HD wax
14. Windows polished and sealed with a mixture of G1 and G5
15. Quick wipedown with a QD.
 
Very happy with the results:

I didn't clean the interior but thought I'd pop some pics up:

I'm so happy with the car, it's everything I wanted to be and more. The way it puts the power down is so effortless, the car is smooth across the bumpiest of roads and the interior is a classy affair. Everything fits as it should and has a solid feel to it.
 
I'll still be hanging around the forum as I have always liked Ford's and we have a few in the family :)

Climate Control / Air Con Question

17 February 2014 - 10:11 PM

This is a pretty random post, but I'm wondering if anyone else has ever noticed this / something is wrong with my car.

 

Basically when I have the Air con on (usually 20 degrees) in the mornings and it gets to optimum heat. I'm finding that when I turn left the fans go really cold, then heat back up and it's pretty much every long left turn, like roundabouts and bends it always happens?!

 

Anyone got any info on this? 


Time To Say Goodbye!

05 October 2013 - 08:53 PM

I put down my deposit on a brand new Audi A3 sport this afternoon  :D. I felt like moving onwards from Ford, I've had a few now and wanted a bit of German refinement and engineering. 

 

Took it for a test drive and it blew me away. It can't be classed with my lil fez which I'll miss. 

 

Only downside is delivery date due March 14  :huh:

 

I'll be sticking around even after I take delivery as it's a good crowd here. Pics to follow.....  :lol:
