In Topic: 1994 Mondeo Finally Put To Rest, How Similar Are 2004 Models ?

Yesterday, 08:08 PM

Replacing the stereo is straight forward, just order the correct fascia kit, wiring loom and tools to remove the old one. I'm leaving the 6 CD Sony unit in mine as it has an aux input in the glovebox anyway.

 

Never driven an X-Type but I have a friend who drives an S type and his Dad has driven Jags for a few years before as well and both have no complaints. I believe they are underneath the stuff we actually see, a Mondeo. I guess it'd be like an ST Mondeo but with a LOT more luxury in it.

Definitely useful mods.

 

I bought mine due to being made redundant, so it's replaced a 60 plate ford focus sport (nothing sporty about it, but it was named as such to empty the inventory of extras when making way for the Mk3 focus)

 

I would eventually like to go for a camera on the back - I used to have parking sensors on the focus and although I've had no problem with parking the Mondy so far, I do miss having the information there.

 

The car I drove before the focus was a BMW 316i (E46) and the Mondeo is very reminiscent of it, except it is much more fun to the drive. Absolutely itching to take it for a long run somewhere!

I have a 2006 Mk3 Ghia and, as I'm only 5'10", I need the seat really far forward as there's loads of legroom.

 

It actually has more front space than my last car (a 2.8TD LWB Pajero)

 

I went for the Ghia 'cos I like all the wee extras you get with it  :)

 

There are indeed lots of cool extras with the Ghia. Bar the Air conditioning on mine, everything appears to work, but am waiting for a chilly morning to test the heated glass.

I was of the impression these air con regas machines were just self automated once connected and the cycle button has been pressed?

 

The thing is, ATS haven't charged me because it didn't work, I don't really want to go to an independent and risk them charging me to regas it if it doesn't work still.

 

Not saying your experience isn't true, but I just have doubts that in my situation it's going to be resolved by getting it regassed again, although it would be nice!
