Don't worry I'm taking a roll of bubble wrap and my seven man armed guard team so none of these "forum ford car fans" can scratch it.

You enjoy your Sunday sat in your car at home making sure nobody scratches it :)

By that reckoning then most extras are titanium x or titanium, as they are standard on those yet appear as extras / options on other cars in the fiesta range. :P

Like (off the top of my head, I'd have to check to be 100%); rear privacy glass, rear centre headrest, s/s door sill protectors, cruise control, auto headlights / wipers, led drls, heated front seats, electric folding mirrors, rear sensors, EATC, dab stereo, do you want me to go on?

Or all ST3 options ? Seen as that's the highest fiesta model not titanium or titanium x, but it doesn't work like that.

We all care for our cars, it's a forum for cars ? I spend a lot on mine and it's not a hyper car. But I'm still going to ford fair to enjoy the day with other ford fanatics etc. I just don't expect FOC to put my car under armed guard and constant cctv surveillance with laser beams around it. Only way they could guarentee a silly request like that.

Do you sit in the car while your other half goes in the supermarket then ? Or let me guess you get it delivered ? Hahaa sorry to be abit horrible but it is just a fiesta, just enjoy the car instead of worrying about things that may never happen and if they did its life and part of motoring. You can't bubble wrap it.


#475847 Body Kit Starting To Separate

Posted by Nathan54771 on 13 April 2015 - 12:12 PM

They have Obviously just not put enough on in that corner, it happens as its a mass produced fiesta not a bespoke Rolls Royce.

Yes, because you said you'd remove it, which will be a waste seen as you paid to have it on the car and will cost you money to remove it.


#475836 Body Kit Starting To Separate

Posted by Nathan54771 on 13 April 2015 - 11:54 AM

Just needs re tiger sealing at the bodyshop which will be under warranty, then will be fine. Unless your keeping it for 10 years and never want to re tiger seal it again, remove it and waste money.

Do you not take your car out the garage then ? Never leave it parked up ? no offence but nobody is going to purposely scratch your car at a place full of ford fanatics unless you upset them.

If the worst did happen, it's one of them things, you fix it or get insurance to fix it (they don't know if it happened or not on a public road)

If that's what's putting you off going ford fair then it's pretty sad in my personal opinion. It's not a 1 million pound hyper car. It's a fiesta.


#471697 Rant! (Warranty Issues)

Posted by Nathan54771 on 31 March 2015 - 12:31 PM

Try another dealer, you never know your luck. If you had purchased from a dealer and this fault developed, you could have demanded a repair free of charge under the Sale of Goods Act. This would be regardless of warranty issues.

You purchased privately so cannot enforce those rights sadly. Unless of course the person you bought it from buys and sells cars in the course of a business.


Hit the nail on the head, that sums it perfectly.


#471695 Rant! (Warranty Issues)

Posted by Nathan54771 on 31 March 2015 - 12:24 PM

So unfortunately it's pay to repair or ignore the fault.

Personally don't think the dealer has done a great deal wrong. They've repaired your puddle light, just communication about the armrest obviously wasn't the best


#471680 Rant! (Warranty Issues)

Posted by Nathan54771 on 31 March 2015 - 12:02 PM

Well you've just answered yourself, the guy you bought it from broke the armrest hinge and unfortunately it isn't warranty. The confusion also being the technician wouldn't tell you that as it isn't his job, they've made the phone call to inform you. I'm afraid that's part of buying privately, you don't get a dealer cover or the dealer repairing things like that before its re-sold to someone like yourself.


#471675 Rant! (Warranty Issues)

Posted by Nathan54771 on 31 March 2015 - 11:56 AM

Don't mean this in a bad way, but if you noticed it when you purchased it you should of
1. Made them aware and get them to fix asap as its a new vehicle your purchasing
2. Not left it until your service because for all the technician knows uouve broken it since.

If the hinge is damaged it isn't warranty as someone has been too hard opening/closing it etc.

So In my opinion that isn't the dealers fault, but out of good will if you purchased the car from there Id tell the manager your situation and hope he understands and does it for free or discounted.


#470780 Steering Wheel Trim.

Posted by Nathan54771 on 28 March 2015 - 08:32 PM

Better to remove it if your having it wrapped. Get a better quality wrap so they can fold it behind.

Easily removed with a Torx bit removing the three screws behind it.


#470750 Steering Wheel Trim.

Posted by Nathan54771 on 28 March 2015 - 07:34 PM

They are a replaceable part, you'll struggle to get hold of one without them trying to sell with the steering wheel though.

There's three torx screws behind it holding it in place.

Search ebay :)
