#462279 New Fiesta Range - Red & Black Editions

Posted by Ffoxy on 07 March 2015 - 05:22 PM

I have no idea on the mechanics or chemistry of it but I've had no scratches from using it on my last 3 cars including this one.
Obviously if it's caked in mud I'll jet wash that off first.
My image speaks for itself, in fact, here's a close up, this car has had the dry wash treatment once a week for 5 months.

In fact, and I know it's personal choice, but I'd say it seems better than a 1 bucket wash and could possible only be bettered by a 2 bucket system with filters.

Here in Telford the water is hard and leaves terrible lime marking on Panther Black, but this stuff eliminates all the above and there's no scratches or swirling.

I saw a similar thread from a guy in Denmark or Norway. Took lots of visits until a Ford specialist rather than a dealership identified a software issue I think.

The thread is in here somewhere.

#454551 Paint Chips

Posted by Ffoxy on 14 February 2015 - 08:50 PM

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.

#454340 Just Installed An Led Stripe Above The Globebox, What Do You Think Guys? Cost...

If you'd wired it into the footwell lights it would work along with them.

Easy to do as well.

#443857 Mk6 Fiesta Throttle Response

Don't waste your money.
The 1.25 is a bit weedy, see what your insurance might cost for a 1.6
Or if you can afford it the later 1.0 Ecoboost engined cars are silly pokey!

Reject this car.
Your dealer sounds poor.
You have given them chances to repair it but it is not of merchantable quality.

You have been very unfortunate, I feel for you.

Just enjoy the car.
I love mine, I don't race it or thrash it and to me it's not about how fast it is or what I can or can't "beat".

It's how it was designed, it's not tampered with and its covered by Warranty and my insurance is legal.

Ford have produced a very good little car.

#438979 Dash Cam And Car Wax

Posted by Ffoxy on 23 December 2014 - 07:17 AM

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.

No paint topcoat = reduced protection. No brainer.

#434264 Ford Fiesta Ecoboost Mpg

Posted by Ffoxy on 05 December 2014 - 07:22 AM

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.
