Congratulations on the birth and glad he's now out of hospital. Hope he makes a full and speedy recovery.

Ford pulled the contract on dmb for the gel badges. They do custom ones so might be worth dropping them an email to see if they can do you fiesta ones.

#426338 Locking Wheel Nut.

Posted by karlos1987 on 07 November 2014 - 07:16 PM

I tried the aa mate. They didn't have much luck. Alls they told me is what is posted above about being over torqued. Hopefully you have better luck than I did with them.

I even went to ford and asked a mechanic if he would do it for £20 drinking money but I would of had a better conversation with a brick wall. Lol.


#426307 Locking Wheel Nut.

Posted by karlos1987 on 07 November 2014 - 06:18 PM

I went for this set as the key sits around the nut rather than in it.

I would suggest getting locking nuts as st alloys are very sought after with thieves.

From behind I like it. But side view I think it spoils the look.

#421360 Heavy Fuel Consumption

Posted by karlos1987 on 21 October 2014 - 11:36 AM

My 1.6 focus gets about 27/28 mpg. And it's used daily in town driving conditions.

Try resetting it when you next fill up and go from there.

#417452 Are Less People Working On Their Own Cars?

Posted by karlos1987 on 08 October 2014 - 01:41 PM

I do as much as possible on my car.

I hate paying garages. Will only do so if I really have no other option.

I tend to think if I can get it off I can.get it back on so I can replace it.

I brought a Haynes manual for my focus and even though it hurt me paying £20 for a book. I've more than saved my money.

Infact it's earned me money by doing bits for other people.
