Posted by Phil 87 on Yesterday, 09:55 AM

For once the reason for something selling the most is that it's the best :)

#386928 Ford Fair 2014 - Who's Going?

Posted by Phil 87 on 17 July 2014 - 01:17 PM

Got tickets and pass :)




2 stand passes and all sorts of goodies haha. My extra pass is for the Fiesta OC stand which I don't need and they don't need it either, so if anyone wants it PM me your address :)

#386643 Want To Join The Yorkshire / M1 South Ford Fair Convoy?

Posted by Phil 87 on 16 July 2014 - 05:35 PM

That's not even that bad as far as modded Vauxhalls go, at least the bumper is the same colour as the body and the exhaust isn't touching the ground :P

#385831 Want To Join The Yorkshire / M1 South Ford Fair Convoy?

Posted by Phil 87 on 14 July 2014 - 01:55 PM

I just had a look back through the thread and it looks like these are all the people who want to join us so far:


Philf1 - Fiesta ST2
Phil 87 - Fiesta ST3
nath.mk7.st - Fiesta ST2
paul_focus - Focus MK1
Ikoyian - Fiesta ZS
Nathan54771 - Fiesta ZS
Nerve - Focus S
So by all means invite anyone else along so we can have a nice long convoy :). We might also be joining up with a convoy from Fiesta OC.
Phil maybe you should edit your first post with a list of everyone joining the convoy.

#370417 My New St3 :d :d :d

Very nice, I like the blue ST badge to match the spirit blue. And I know the feeling, had mine just over a month and it still makes me smile every time I walk up to it :)

I'll have to have another play with it then, at least the windows go down that's the main thing.

Everyone who has this feature should put it in their sig  B)


But what to call it? Window opening thingy?

#365655 Nifty Little Feature

Posted by Phil 87 on 19 May 2014 - 12:34 PM

I'll have to try this on mine, will be very useful. I often open both windows before sitting in the car in this weather, so it'll save a few seconds, but mainly it's good for showing off :). Or maybe for scaring people standing next to the car lol.

#360682 Another New St Thread :)

Posted by Phil 87 on 05 May 2014 - 08:19 PM

I finally have my ST3, pics below :)


I picked it up last Wednesday but only got round to taking photos this weekend after cleaning it. As you all probably expect, I absolutely love the car. I've had a lot of fun with it already, even though I'm taking it easy for the first thousand miles or so. Already done nearly 500 miles which was mostly driving it back from the dealer, but also had some fun up in North Yorkshire this weekend. I can't wait to really put my foot down and see what it can do, just trying to restrain myself for a while longer :)

I agree, try another dealer. Remember all Ford dealers can do work which is covered by the warranty, not just the one you bought it from. The warranty is between you and Ford, the dealers are like middle men.

#354049 Titanium Vs Zetec S

Posted by Phil 87 on 15 April 2014 - 07:25 PM

Very nice (almost typed very nice Willy lol). Didn't they offer the dress up kit as an option?

#353935 Ford Fiesta Zetec Seats

Posted by Phil 87 on 15 April 2014 - 01:03 PM

Have you looked for some information on how to set up your driving position properly? If your back isn't being supported properly due to the seat being tilted too far back / forward, arms being too stretched out etc, that could be your problem. For example: http://www.wikihow.c...n-While-Driving


Fiestas are known to have a very good driving position so I think it's more likely that the seat isn't adjusted properly, not that there's a problem with the seats.

#350305 Calling All Fiesta St-2 Owners

Posted by Phil 87 on 03 April 2014 - 12:26 PM

I actually paid £17,850 which I'm quite happy with, but I'll agree it would have been more sensible to save 2 grand or more and make do without all the extras. I thought I'd treat myself though, plus I love gadgets :)

#347187 Stop/start Engine Zetec S Ecoboost

Posted by Phil 87 on 25 March 2014 - 02:27 PM

It should save quite a bit of fuel if there is a lot of stop/start traffic on your journeys. I read somewhere that an engine idling for more than 10 seconds or so uses more fuel than it would take to start it up again, but that's just for engines without s/s. I think s/s engines are different, with a better starter motor etc.


Does the ST have start/stop?

#343948 Ordering An St-3, Questions

Posted by Phil 87 on 17 March 2014 - 05:11 PM




I'll probably get bored of the ZS within a year or two and trade it in... onwards and upwards!!



Yes there's always that option, but I'm sure you'll be happy with the ZS, maybe there will be a Mountune upgrade to help close the gap a bit :). I was thinking about going for a ZS just because of the lower price, but the lack of options like cruise control, not to mention the awesomeness of the ST persuaded me.
