Rs Tuning Leeds-Dyno Run-Anyone Interested In A Group Buy?

15 November 2014 - 07:33 PM

Hi guys 

 

Me and my son Tomo89 are planning on taking our ST's to RS Tuning in Leeds to have a go on the rolling road to get reading for the horse power of our cars.

 

The cost is £45 per car but we are going to try and negotiate a group discount if anyone else is interested? I'm guessing we will probably go on a Saturday but this will depend on how many folks are interested and when they can fit us in.

 

Here's a link to their website http://www.rstuning.co.uk/index.php We've heard some really good reports on this place they do REVO tuning just have a look at the website.

 

If you would be interested in taking part in this post a reply on here and we will see what sort of deal we can get from them. Obviously if anyone wants to go for a full remap they would have to arrange that themselves.

Help Needed Ka Titanium Bluetooth Set Up

27 October 2014 - 08:52 PM

Hi guys I'm hoping someone can help my son's girlfriend has just picked up a brand new KA Titanium today with bluetooth and USB connectivity pack. Due to it being late in the day when she collected it and both me and son having bluetooth in our Fiestas we thought it would be a simple job to set up. 

 

However we can't find anything in the stereo menu and searching from her phone is not finding anything to pair with so we are all a bit stumped. 

 

I've tried to search for a handbook on line but nothing I find has any instructions for this. 

 

Can anyone help please. Otherwise I think a trip back to the dealers tomorrow is probably the only answer.

Just a warning for folks who have keyless entry/start especially those in London. 


Yorkshire Dales Blast - Buttertubs Pass - Anyone Fancy This?

18 October 2014 - 10:21 PM

So with nothing to do today I decided to go for a drive with my son over Buttertubs Pass as I had heard so much good stuff about it. This is the route I took and my thoughts about it.

 

So form Halifax drove to Skipton and along the A65 to Ingleton. This is a good road if you don't get stuck behind tourist traffic. At Ingleton I took the B6255 to Hawes stopping at Ribblehead viaduct for a cuppa and photo shot.

From Hawes it's Buttertubs time. This is only a short 5 mile drive and it steep up and steep down the otherside. Sheer 1000ft drop on the right side but views are pretty stunning. To be honest it's not the best road I've driven. Turned left and took the B6270 through Thwaite and over the moors towards Nateby.

 

This was entertaining today when we stopped for a "natural" break on the top of the moors with nothing in sight except grass and sky and a clear road for 1/2 mile in each direction we had just got back in the car when a Toyota Avensis comes from opposite direction and whilst passing me decided to leave too big a gap and ended up in the ditch up to the sills. He wasn't going nowhere due to very wet boggy land off the side of the road. Fortunately no one hurt except his pride. He was a Dutch bloke in a hire car. There was no mobile signal so I went to the nearest garage about 4 miles down the road and sought help the mechanic took his 4x4 and pulled him out for £30. Dutchy was very lucky, there did not appear to be any damage to the hire car and nothing that a good jet wash wouldn't put right. All this took about an hour but was my good deed for the day so feel good about helping him out.

 

Onwards to Nateby and turn left onto the B6259 and then left onto the A684 back to Hawes. Then back to Ribblehead and across the B6479 to Settle and back home.

 

Was a great day out, good weather great roads bit of fun with the car in the ditch and 150 miles or so miles on the clock of the ST2.

 

Heres a link to the route in Google maps.

I'm definately going to do this again so if anyone fancies a day out with me let reply to this post and we'll arrange it
