Opinions Please - Keep Or Get Rid!

11 September 2014 - 09:21 AM

Hi guys – after peoples opinion on what would be best for me.

Current got a 1.6TDCi Fiesta, was doing about 250 miles per week (which I know a few people would still consider petrol mileage, though it’s mainly motorway, so suited the driving very well).

Basically, my mileage will be dropping to 100 miles per week, tops (starting uni on Monday).Will doing 2-3 trips a month to visit the other half at uni (160 miles).

My first thought was to trade the car in for a faster petrol, but I have about 7.5k outstanding finance on it still!

Is it possible to trade in for an older car (been looking at swift sports for the mk6 ST) without paying any more per month? Being a skint student I can’t afford to pay more! Or would it be wise to just keep the car and hope it don’t run into any issues with the few longish runs I’ll be doing every now and again?

Apologies for the long post, but I’d like opinions please.

Cheers


Bluefin Fiesta Tdci 95Ps

31 July 2014 - 09:50 PM

Just to let anyone know as I haven't seen it mentioned on here.

Superchips now offer the bluefin for the 95PS fiesta TDCi. I seen it on their website and thought it must have been an error, I emailed them and they confirmed it has been available since the 17th of this month.

Think I will be ordering myself one quite soon :)

Photo Locations?

16 December 2013 - 05:24 PM

As a part of my graphic design course I'm doing I have to produce a magazine front cover. So I thought why not do one including my car?

Does anyone have any ideas of locations that would be good to take photos of the car? With some lovely scenery would be nice.

I'm from County Durham / newcastle way, wouldn't mind a bit of a drive if requires.

Thanks in advance
Tom

Insurance & Remapping

14 December 2013 - 01:14 PM

Hi guys,

 

Just came off the phone with admiral to enquire about how much it was cost if i got the car remapped.

I was told that they do not insure any cars that have been remapped only cars that have an engine chip. 

 

Stupid I know, but my question is to the people that have their cars remapped - who are you with and how much extra did you have to pay for the remap?

 

Cheers


Windscreen Washer Reservoir

07 December 2013 - 01:56 PM

Hi, 

 

What size is the windscreen washer reservoir in the mk7 fiesta?

 

Was empty yesterday when I tried to use the washers and just put over 2 litres in today and it still wasn't full! Didn't think it would have held that much.

 

Cheers

Tom
