Confused - Not Sure What To Do!

02 July 2014 - 02:00 PM

Hi All,

Have been on here a good while (since the launch of the ecoboost)


I have loved my little fiesta since day one of getting it,the cheap insurance, no road tax , good mpg , good looks etc - I bought this car on finance with ford via the PCP where I can keep it at the end.

I am now 15 months into the agreement of 36 and want some more power.


Get a bit fustrated that there are tons of cars out there with a lot more power and I want the type of things the ST has and My Zetec S doesn't... And when that happens you see more ST's or equivlant powered cars driving around you... and then your friends also get quick cars to add to it!


Then i sort of think whats the point its not all about power look at the insurance benefits/tax/mpg etc etc...


I know you can generally switch a car when you have paid off half of the amount of the car value but that value is when I have reached month 35 of the 36 (around 7K)


I suppose I could always ask for a final settlement from the finance company and see if a dealership will pay that to get another car but problem I face is that I expected to do 6K miles. Since got a new job and I do a lot more have already hit 14K 15 months in.


Anyone with experience got some advise on the finance side and also the option of going for the ST or not.

Any help is much appreciated.

Think they look modern and smart not cheap though!

Wondering how easy this is to do for someone not so technical with cars?

If it's easy enough can someone give me some advice in what is needed to be done.

Music Playing From Usb

Looking for the best way to play my music from my phone via USB but it takes an absolute age to index my phone and don't find the music I have.

Is it because its looking in a specifc area?

I have a Samsung S4 and use the Google Play Access All Areas for £9.99 a month - I have downloaded the songs to my local phone on external storage.

Painting Callipers

Going to attempt to do this after seeing some very smart red ones and would suite my car.

I've driven on them for 10,000 miles already and there must be build up of crap on there.

After buying the heat proof paint from halfrauds I also go a wire brush recon I should scrub them free of any rust and dust before applying?

Does anything else need applying before or after?
