Small stone chips usually leave behind protected metal, it's important to know if the stone went through to the metal or not.
They can be pretty well fixed I found a cocktail stick very useful rather than a brush, and I'm a convert to Halfords matched paint.
They match it from your paint code.
"Ford has fitted the Black Edition with sportier suspension than the standard models. The Black’s springs are lowered by 10mm and are 12 per cent stiffer at the front and six per cent stiffer at the rear."
I got a free Dash cam app for my iPhone and tbh it's as good as the standalone one I had in my last car.
Sits in a screen cradle and I take it out when I leave the car.
I agree the Save option doesn't work, but it DOES actually save recordings.
The Golf (if it's a 1.9 diesel) is also a damn sight uglier, dirtier and smellier.
That's not an insult but a truth.
Why, some old oil burners could probably run on chip fat too... Mmmm nice.
The point you miss here is that modern technology has allowed Ford and others to create very small capacity engines that, to date, are zero road fund rated, will never need a cambelt changed, are fantastically agile and fun to drive, are pretty quick by ANY standards and can STILL give almost diesel like economy, not forgetting petrol per litre is so much cheaper than devil oil too.
I chose the Black Edition.
I tried the ST today before I left for home in my new car, and the ST is a great car.
Particularly for the younger drivers I must say, more committed, harder ride, louder engine and exhaust note, more aggressive body kit and a very nice leather interior.
As for the remap query, the 140 BHP is gained from map tweaks, turbo waste gate changes, valve timing changes and the gear ratio alterations enable best use of those changes.
So I'd guess straight power output could be matched by a remap, but the beauty of the Black/Red Editions is the manner of the power delivery across the power band.
