#482289 2 Problems With My New Fiesta

Posted by JoeZS19 on 03 May 2015 - 09:57 PM

I had issues when I had my 2010 Zetec s with the radios bluetooth not working correctly, there is an update you can do with the USB port and download from ford but I never bothered with it..with the radio not playing the song/no sound when the phones plugged in. How have you plugged the phone in? As I only found the music would play via a aux cable and not the usb?

#482287 Fiesta St Questions...

Posted by JoeZS19 on 03 May 2015 - 09:54 PM

14" will fit on the back, don't think it will on the front. Correct space saver has a 125/80R15 tyre, some say you shouldn't put a spacesaver on the front though.

Yes, keyless start can be stolen via OBD, worth taking the fuse out, moving the port up behind the dash ( fit a dummy socket though)

Disklok (size small) is probably the best visual deterent/wheel lock available, shouldn't cheap out on something that important, try eBay for a used one if necessary.

Get gap insurance try ALA, £130-170 for 3 years depending on cover.

The standard bridgestones don't work very well below 7 degrees they are definitely a summer tyre, so it's going to be similar to the ZS.

Drove my zs in the snow and didn't have any issues. May lol into other tyres when I get my St though.

How come you recommend fitting a dummy port? Is it just so the thieving scum takes longer to figure things out?

Could always paint the drums black, and the front calipers a different colour?. Yeah it does look good with the St diffuser. Only reason I'm not doing mine is im getting an St next month ;)

Personally I wouldn't paint the rear drums (circle thing) as I think it looks a bit naff & drawing attention to the fact the fiesta drum brakes instead of discs on the back. Each to their own though :), and like the colour you want to paint them it's down to personally taste!

I believe a lad called Nathan on here added the rear St diffuser to his candy blue fiesta and added a an exhaust tip to the standard exhaust and it looked really good. I've currently got a candy blue zs the same as you and had considered doing it to mine.

Sorry to hear about the car.
I've always been worried about people damaging my cars (after having one Keyed in the past) and I'm sure I still will when I get my st.

But I've got to the stage where I'm not going to let some arsehole stop me from having something nice that I've worked for. Unfortunately some peoples mentalities are to be idiots no matter what

It's more to do with the keyless start.

Ah right ok, mine will have the keyless start but not keyless entry. I'll remove the obd fuse anyways just incase

#429681 Nearly Sideswiped!

Posted by JoeZS19 on 19 November 2014 - 04:39 PM

Don't know why but in the last four months since I've owned my fiesta I've had so many people nearly wipe me out pulling across into the lane I'm in. It's not even if it's a dark coloured car, it's bright blue ffs!
But what really annoys me is when they start mouthing off when it's their fault :@

It's definitely made my reactions sharper, and I'm a pro with the horn now haha

#427981 St Colour And Sat Nav

Posted by JoeZS19 on 12 November 2014 - 11:52 PM

I've got the same possible future dilemma..

I really like the spirit blue, but I've seen a couple of red ones about and They look great too.

Black looks mean and understated but can be a pain to keep clean and will show swirl marks, scratches etc (obviously can reduce these but is more work)

Really don't like the molten orange colour, just looks to weak/faded to me. But some people love it

Just go with which ever colour your heart leans more towards, I'm sure from what st owners have said the way the car drives will soon take your mind off of the colour haha.

Do it, I've just picked my ST3 yesterday and can't stop jumping in to go for a drive. Trip says I'm adveraging 38mpg but that's as I'm taking it easy for a steady break in. And dealer matched the price I got offered from EMC forces cars which was fantastic.

I'm sure I would be doing the same, finding excuses to drive it aha
