I was just saying to a friend, for £10 a year for premium membership, the benefits you get are ridiculous! Hopefully I won't be shunned despite not actually owning a ford anymore!  :ph34r:

When I went to the 'bikehut' to buy some bits I had all the staff up there having a look at the card. In the end got a little more than 15% off ;) Hats off to the people who set up the discount card!

#372953 Runaround Car Suggestions

Posted by HShaw on 09 June 2014 - 03:31 PM

What a lovely and thorough overview of the aixam! For some reason though I think I may have to give it a miss.

 

I don't think it'd even be worth buying a new cheap car, it won't be used enough for the warranty to even matter! I think a used c'eed will be the way forward, even on looks alone haha.

I'll find some locally and take one out for a test drive. I may spend a few more pennies to get a good example. 

 

Thanks for taking the time out to reply mate, much appreciated!  :)

#352205 2014 Fiesta Zetec S Questions

Posted by HShaw on 09 April 2014 - 11:39 AM

In my experience:

 

1. Speakers are really good for standard ones. For some reason they sound louder/better when playing music through bluetooth rather than aux, at least in mine.

 

2. Engine sounds lovely when giving it the boot, lovely 3 cylinder rumble, otherwise very quiet. Exhaust note is non-existent, consider an aftermarket system if you are after that sorta thing. 

 

3. I average 45mpg, mostly around town with the odd blasts down some A/B roads. So that's like 400ish miles to a tank?

 

4. Depending on price per litre obviously. Around £50 should see you full.

 

5. Again depends on prices locally. Round my end rear 3 windows cost £90!




#352091 Ecoboost 1.0 Tuning Possibilities = More Powerrrr!!!!

Posted by HShaw on 08 April 2014 - 09:18 PM

Well to be fair, considering the MP140 package for the 1.6 zetec s costs £1395 + fitting and results in 140PS / 170nm and 0-60 in 7.9 seconds.

 

I feel pretty okay with the idea of paying £375 + fitting for 135PS / 215nm, plus warranty intact etc... 0-60 can't be that far off either!




#351558 Comparison Of Old St And New St

Posted by HShaw on 07 April 2014 - 12:57 AM

Loved the write up. Made for a good read!  :)  I really enjoyed the fact you didn't just rave on just about how the new ST is better than the last but gave some fair comparisons.

To be honest, if I wasn't saving up to do my bike test + a bike + all the gear etc I would be saving up to swap my ZS for an ST no doubt haha.

Damnit Willy!! You got me all excited!!




#347122 Ecoboost 1.0 Tuning Possibilities = More Powerrrr!!!!

Posted by HShaw on 25 March 2014 - 11:28 AM

I don't think warranty is at the forefront of anyones mind if considering a remap! I'm just a tad disappointed as I was hoping it'd be at least on par with the MP140 package they had for the preface lift zetec s. Considering what other tuning companies have got out of it I was a little surprised at 135. Who knows what they might have in the not too distant future though?
