Bargain Winter Tyres For Zetec-S Owners

09 June 2014 - 06:47 PM

Wrong time of year I know but best time to buy while the price and demand is low. You will not find a better deal than this bargain I am offering: http://www.fordowner...es/#entry373010

Might fit other models of Fiesta too. Any questions just PM me.

Suitable 16" Wheels For St

01 June 2014 - 01:43 PM

I had a set of winter tyres on my ZS with it's 16" alloys and I retained the tyres which of course won't fit the ST. Long way off yet but when winter arrives (assuming we get a winter this year) can I just get any 16" steel or alloys off ebay or will only specific types fit the ST?


I just need a cheap set for the winter months but I don't want to order a set then find out that they don't fit.


Any thoughts on this and rough guess as to prices?

Attention Members! Have One Of You Bought My Old Car?

31 May 2014 - 11:21 PM

It's not everyday you park next to your old car but I was at Odeon Derby tonight to see X-Men Days of Future Past (very good) and spotted my old car (harsh to even label it old) so I parked next to it and took this photo. Anyone on here care to own up? lol

Bonnet Re-Spray

10 May 2014 - 07:01 PM

Had the ST just over a month now and there's a long scratch at an angle near the washer jets! A pro valeter came out to give the car a proper wax and polish and even deployed the machine polisher but the scratch is deep.


God knows where it came from but what do you reckon I would be looking at for a bonnet re-spray?

Security Tips For St While On Holiday

27 April 2014 - 10:03 PM

My ST-2 will be left on our driveway when we go for a family holiday to Scotland for 1 week in my dad's Audi. Obviously I won't reveal where I live or when I'm going just in case Mr C.Riminal reads this and thinks "AHA! I will duly steal it!"


Then, later this year, I am off to USA for 2 weeks and my mum and day are taking us to Heathrow. They will go on holiday in the UK for 1 week once we have lifted off, so the ST will be sat on the drive again for a week.


We have a burglar alarm at the house, good neighbours but no gates. We live on a fairly busy main road too. The ST is bound to be a prime choice for scumbags and they will happily smash their way through the house looking for the keys. Options I've thought of for your consideration please:


1: Leave the car at work (unlikely that management will agree to this)

2: Hide the keys somewhere the crim can't possibly find them

3: Leave the keys at work, locked in my drawer so the crim cannot get the keys at all

4: Hide the keys and fit a disklock to the steering wheel or something similar


Someone I know had their BMW 3 series stolen off the drive recently after crims smashed their way through the house and took the keys.


Opinions and/or alternative suggestions please (I can't find anyone suitable to leave the car with)
