you can tune it manually, I think they are tuned in to wherever they check the car and first turn it on as mine had stations preset in the list that aren't in my area, bit of a ballache to tune imo but you can scrawl through manually just by pressing left and right or hold the button down to do it, but you have to have the actual tuning bar up for it to pick up new stations and not just press the button and hope it picks them up, all that is doing then is searching for past saved stations.

See this is where GTA would be better as reality, next time pull out some sticky bombs and have the of them off the road in no time, evade police and repeat tomorrow.


Half the population of the UK could burn in nuclear fire and the other half ( us the cleverer half ) wouldn't even notice they were missing, nation full of complete idiots.


I'm on the hate for taxi drivers lately, the amount I've seen at night driving with no lights on ( and with passengers in the cars ) is unreal.


Road users in this country have no idea how lucky they are gun laws are so strict, if we had the same gun laws as the US there would be murders every minute on UK roads, utter flids everywhere.

Just be careful with it, it can scratch the discs quite badly and make them useless, they are not cheap to replace either.

#441160 No Dipped Beam Indicator? Really?

Posted by MattDRX on 02 January 2015 - 03:49 PM

Can you not just tell from seeing the light infront of you? Or the fact the lights aren't on dipped as you didn't turn it two clicks? don't get the issue myself.


It's like saying my car doesn't tell me it's dark and I forgot to change from Sidelights to dipped all the time. barely any cars have a separate indicator for sides and dipped.

Possibly just grit, the gritters are all over the place at the moment, try giving it a hose in the caliper and disc and see if it changes anything.

Think the patent has expired now, it's what 10 years or something, Mercedes have a similar thing going on now but not standard ( it's a merc of course not ) but they never were "exclusive" to Ford as Mazda etc all the companies owned by Ford either part of whole do have them in various stages too. like some Mazda MPS models have them.

^ Agreed, you were already committed, no issue on your part, I had the above once where I was about 50M down a road with cars parked up on my side, 10M from it clearing and some douche bag in an A3 sitting low Gansta style took our mirrors out, he didn't want to sort it and instead he wanted his insurance to clean me out, took a picture of how he was sitting ( couldn't see anything ) and turned out I was in the right and he owed me a mirror, turns out Citroen Xsara mirrors are expensive and he lost his NCD over it and his excess.

#437387 Jump Sarting Vehicle Using Jump Leads

Posted by MattDRX on 17 December 2014 - 10:12 AM

When I worked for Renault many moons ago we used to use a 3.0V6 Diesel Espace to jump everything, cars used to go flat on the forecourt all the time and this was the only car that never went flat,


Never killed any Meganes, most fragile motor on earth, not that I know of anyway, warranty queue was about 15 miles long lol
