How Do I Clean Small Black Spots Off?

04 January 2015 - 02:02 PM

I just washed my car and noticed a lot of small black spots along the sides of it, mostly concentrated around the wheels.


I figure it's because the car has no mudflaps, but they don't make any for the ZS AFAIK.


Anyway the sides feel very coarse, almost like sandpaper, and there's hundreds of tiny small spots on it.


It looks a bit like the stuff used to undercoat the car (to protect it against rust, cars rust extremely fast in Denmark because we use a lot of salt on the roads during winter)



I've attached a picture of it (don't mind the reflection of me  :D)



So here's the question: How do I get rid of it ? My normal soap and sponge (it has a soft and a coarse side, I've tried both) doesn't do anything towards it.

Prevent Aircon From Enabling Automatically

10 November 2014 - 06:29 PM

My wife has a Ford Ka from 2014 (so brand new really), whenever you set the fans to blow all air onto the windshield, it also enables the aircon.


I'd rather be able to control whether aircon should be on or not myself, so is there anyway to prevent this automatic "feature" ?


I've asked the dealer, but they didn't know  :(

Zs 1.0 Sound With Cold Air Induction Kit ?

31 August 2014 - 07:59 AM

I'd like to improve the sound on my ZS 1.0 - primarily the sound I hear inside the cabin, I care less about the outside sound.


So I'm figuring the most efficient/cheap way is to get a cold air induction kit.


Does anyone have a before/after sound comparison from inside the cabin ?


Also can you recommend a kit ?

Has Anyone Tried The Red/black Edition Zs ?

22 August 2014 - 07:07 PM

I'm considering "upgrading" my standard ZS to the red/black edition - primarily for the changed gear ratios, which should help overtake times (which is were I feel the standard ZS is a bit sluggish)



I already tried an ST, and whilst it's very fun, it's not that practical for me due to being unable to fit a tow bar (or whatever it's called, it's the thing you put your trailer on :D  - English isn't my primary language, so bear with me)


So with that out the window (can't live without my trailer, unfortunately) I'm looking to the red/black for a speed upgrade.


I should probably also mention that remapping the car is also illegal in Denmark, so that's out as well  :angry:



To make a long story short: Did anyone try one yet, and can you elaborate on how it performs ? (Mainly interested in the overtake acceleration)

Should I Get Plastic Underneath The Engine On The Ecoboost ?

22 August 2014 - 07:01 PM

This may sound a bit odd, but I've noticed the Diesel mk7.5 come with a large amount of plastic underneath the engine (between the road and the engine bay)


I figure this is to keep dirt, water and eventually snow outside of the engine bay, so why isn't there any on the ZS ? If you open the bonnet you can see straight through down to the asphalt.



So I'm considering getting this plastic fitted, but I'm just wondering if anyone has any knowledge about this ? (i.e. is it a bad idea)
