#446856 Stupid Deal

Posted by Jeff4155 on 21 January 2015 - 10:18 AM

I have always been one to purchase cars, my last 96 model Toyota Conquest Sport I kept around for 10 years and 3 months before selling it for 500 pounds less than what I payed for it 10 years before, who new that old car would become a classic :D

It was great not having car payments for about 8 years, but felt after 230 000km I needed something new. I wanted something similiar to what I had before and the Fiesta ticked all the right boxes for me, I will probably sell the car in two years time before the value starts declineing, or keep it for another 10 years and sell it as a classic ;)

#444611 I Think I've Done It Bye Bye Speaker

Posted by Jeff4155 on 14 January 2015 - 01:39 PM

I think the speakers work the same as globes do, they can't really guarentee them. I'f you play your music at it's max it won't last as long as someone playing it at the bottom end of the hearing spectrim, personally if mine went I wouldn't bother with standard OEM products, I think the after market speakers are way better and in some cases cheaper, depending on the make. I replaced the front 5inch speakers in the doors of my old Toyota Conquest with Sony's and they were mutch better, that was 12 years ago, so I'm sure the products have improved even more sins then.

#433240 Mk7.5 Zs - Exhaust Tip

Posted by Jeff4155 on 01 December 2014 - 12:52 PM

I think it would look a bit funny, rather do the proper cut out of the rear defuser and have it come out straight like the ST does

#427729 Is It Just Me?

Posted by Jeff4155 on 12 November 2014 - 07:52 AM

Did I just find a wormhole in Space and time? or did the Doc mess with my Fiesta and converted it into a Delorean DMC?




#425009 What Do You Like Better Mk7 Or Mk7.5?

Posted by Jeff4155 on 03 November 2014 - 09:37 AM

I think it all depends on the model you choose, if you compare a MK7 high spec car with a low spec MK7.5, the chances are good the MK7 will win, personally for me the price won me over with the High Spec MK 7 in my budget with 30k km on the clock still cheaper than the lowest MK 7.5 new out of the box, like I said before, the only way I'll trade up is if its a ST model

O damn! thats bad luck, but good that you tell us, my iphone cable is always wrapped up in that same bin. is the fuse layout not printed on a sticker in the fuse box, or maybe check the handbook.




#399825 Gel Badge Overlays

Posted by Jeff4155 on 20 August 2014 - 09:26 AM

I personally like mine, I think its all about the colour combo you choose, I send my paint specs to the guy who does them in SA and he matched the colour up perfectly, I'f they looked out of place I would have taken them off in a sec, but in all honesty the standard Blue badge looks out of place with the Blue colour of the car, just by looking at them you won't even notice they are only Gels, but then again if I had gone for something like red font with yellow background on the blue car, it would have been a different story.

As I have said before, the tint makes a huge difference, car just looks more upmarket than without, and in my case it helps with the sun as well, good luck with the mods.

Very nice, I like how you do everything to make it look as if the car came out with it, thanx for the info about the lights, may I ask what the name was for the HID lights that you purchased, so I don't make the same mistake purchasing a cheap set?

#388495 Light Tint Spray Removal.

Posted by Jeff4155 on 22 July 2014 - 07:14 AM

have you tried thinners on the lenses, that tends to remove anything? sorry I don't know the product, but before sanding the lens try a bit of thinners or metholated spirits, just don't get it on the paintwork of the car, ask Mr. Bean what happens.
