Fiesta St Tyres?

06 March 2014 - 10:23 AM

I need new rubber on my front wheels. Can anyone tell me what tyres are fitted as standard to the new ST and will they fit on my Metal? I currently have Bridgestone Potenza 205/40/R17 - are they the same?

How Do You Clean Piano Black Trim On Fiesta Metal?

29 September 2013 - 08:05 AM


I'm the lucky owner of a Fiesta Metal (lovely car btw) and want to know what products I should use to clean my shiny black plastic trim e.g. centre console, DAB stereo and door pulls. I tried Armourall orange wipes but they left a dull looking residue. After something that will clean and restore the natural shine.

Thank you

Shell V-Power Nitro+

07 July 2013 - 09:22 AM

Hi there,


Has anyone experimented with using Shell V-Power Nitro+ unleaded in their Fiesta's?


I filled up from empty today to see if the higher octane rating (99 RON) makes any difference to performance over the Shell FuelSave Unleaded (95 RON).


I have a new Fiesta Metal Ti-VCT which is already a very responsive and torquey engine but there's always room for improvement! Not sure if this engine will take advantage of high octane fuels though?



Speaker Distortion

25 June 2013 - 02:59 PM

I listen to a wide variety of music in the car, and like my music fairly loud, but notice that when playing some bass heavy music such as drum and bass, dubstep and hip hop which feature very low frequency notes that only subwoofers can handle, it causes slight distortion and the doors start of rattle, especially at high volumes. The amp is making the speakers play frequencies that are beyond the speaker's frequency range (can't really blame the speakers as there is no dedicated sub).The equalizer settings are optimized for general listening, with the bass set to middle setting. 


Am I causing long term damage to my speakers by letting them distort slightly? I don't really want to have to change the EQ every time I want to listen to some DnB. I think the speakers on the Sony DAB are fairly high quality Sony ones with metal cones instead of paper, so I'm hoping they can withstand a bit of abuse?

Leather Seat Care

Does anyone bother using any leather care products on their leather seats? I want to keep the leather in top condition. The Autoglym Leather Cleaner and Care Balm have got good reviews and I use a lot of their products for the exterior of my car . Do you think it's necessaey for new cars?
