In Topic: Fiesta St + Mp215 + What Else?

Today, 10:07 AM

Yeah I'm starting to get a bit fed up with it now. I'll see what it does over the next few days so that I know if the knocking is definitely worse with the new mounts, and then I'll think of what to do next, most likely putting the old mounts back on for a start.

So I went to have the new mounts fitted yesterday as a last resort, and it's still knocking  :censored:


If anything it's worse than before because I heard it knocking on small bumps, on two different roads. In fact on one road it was just those rumble strips you get when going into a 30 speed limit. I'll have to see how it goes over the next few days, but I'm reluctant to go back to Stoneacre after this. If I do it will be to get a refund and a standard exhaust fitted (should have kept my old exhaust for that reason).


Also they pointed out to me that the new mounts are a bit wider than the standard ones, so they don't completely fit over the brackets on the exhaust. They said they shouldn't go anywhere and hopefully they're right. I might take it to Benfield in Leeds next because they seem to be experts in fixing unwanted noises on cars.


Also did any of you get any paperwork from Mountune about the warranty? When I had it fitted the first time they said Mountune would send something, but I never got anything (and someone else at Stoneacre didn't know anything about that).

Being sent a bill of £111 from Npower, when my energy is with Coop. But when I called Npower they were very reasonable and sorted it out from me, so as long as they don't send me any more bills I might forgive them :P

In Topic: What Are The Best H7 Headlights?

As said before, white light isn't gunna give you brighter light so it's always going to be a comprises. Hids will be the only thing that will give you brighter white light.
White light may look cool but isn't any use if you can't see where your going ;)


I was going say exactly the same thing. Something like NightBreakers would be a good overall upgrade because they are much brighter than the standard bulbs and a little whiter too. But if you go for the "xenon look" with something like Crystalvisions as I did, it's a bit of a compromise. I think that's because white light doesn't show up well on dark roads, unless it's really bright like what you get with HIDs.


At least the bulbs are cheap so you can easily try different ones. That's what I did, tried Osram Cool Blues first and was disappointed that something described as "cool blue" gives off a yellow light (although they are a good upgrade over standard). Then went with the Crystalvisions because they match the DRLs with an almost white light.

Would it not have been covered under a form of returns policy anyway? Don't we as buyers automatically get to return a product that is faulty?


I think you might have a point. Maybe if the dead pixel is distracting and ruining the experience of using the laptop, you might have the right to return it for a repair or replacement considering it's brand new.
