Hi all,

 

Is there a way to switch off the rear parking sensors? - they are way too sensitive, and frankly, doing my head in.

 

I've had a look on the menu and can't see anything on there to deactivate them.

 

Is it a case of removing a fuse or relay?

 

Thanks in advance. 


Tyre Profile

Afternoon all,

 

I currently have a Fiesta Zetec S with the snowflake alloy wheels.

 

The car sits on the original Bridgestone 205/40/17 rubber but after hearing problems with buckled alloys (mine are all good) I was thinking of going to a 45 profile tyre to give a bit more protection from pot holes etc.

 

My question is, would going 5mm higher in profile affect the speedo all that much and would there be any problems with rubbing on full lock?

 

Thanks in advance

 

Paul

Morning all,

 

I have a Zetec S 1.6 with the 17" snowflake alloys which look great....BUT, the noise from the tyres at anything over 50mph is horrendous.

 

The car has the original Bridgestone Potenzas on but there is still lots of tread left and the tyres are inflated correctly.

 

Any recommendations for 'quieter' tyres? - the ones on are spoiling an otherwise nice driving car!

Hello all,

 

Just bought myself a 2010 Fiesta Zetec S in Sea Grey and got to say I'm loving it at the moment.

 

Coming from a 300bhp Fiat Coupe 20v turbo I was surprised how nippy it is, obviously no where near as powerful but happy with it all the same.

 

The car has covered just 9k and feels very tight and nimble. The engine bay is immaculate as is the rest of the car. I intend to keep it this way.

 

Anyway, enough rambling, just like to say Hi to everyone :)
