#499672 Characteristic Of An St?

Posted by Jeff4155 on 01 July 2015 - 12:52 PM

So in short it's a "Characteristic" of Ford... :rolleyes: I still had mine under 4 year warranty and I didn't even pick it up, the service technician did and they replaced a part of the steering rack column, been 100% so far and it's a year later

very nice, quick question, how come your window surrounds are colour coded around the door pillars, unlike the matt black plastics like the rest of us have? was that something you did?

I like it, reminds me of "Kit" from Knight Rider :rolleyes:

In all seriousness, I think the red led lights in the roof help a lot to see find objects at knight like a remote for garage door, but doesn't distract from driving

About a year ago a friend send me an add about photography, with a few photographers in the add with their camera's all flashing, one of the guys was my dad, this was very obviouse, asked my dad about it and he had no clue, someone took a photo of him while he was taking a photo of something else, most likely an air show event and editted it into an add for the company, tried to get hold of the company who's add it was but no luck

#478483 Whats Anti-Stall

Posted by Jeff4155 on 21 April 2015 - 02:15 PM

I love playing in traffic with it, was one of the first things I noticed on my car, basically it's possible to remove your foot off  the clutch pedal without stalling the car in gear, it keeps the revs up.

On the airplane type of stall is when not enough airflow moves under the wings for it to create lift and the plane stalls and will fall out of the sky if not corrected

#461035 New Gps Tracker Has Arrived...

Posted by Jeff4155 on 04 March 2015 - 01:32 PM

interresting, a tracker system came with the purchase of my insurance. I was very surprised at how accurate the system is, showing me all sorts of data by logging into their web site like:

avg. speed travelled per day/month/year

brakeing harshly

exact time within seconds when car was started/stopped

It uses Google to show were exactly I have travelled and were the car is at any given time.


To this day I have no idea were exactly they installed the tracker and what the damn thing looks like, but at least I know its working as it should.

Negatives about it is, I can't go race my car around a track without the inssurance knowing were I have been, which in my case doesn't bother me mutch

I have a tracker in the car, thanx to my insurance, but who knows what they will do to try and steel a car

#456225 Light Upgrades

Posted by Jeff4155 on 19 February 2015 - 07:04 AM

Lucky for me we don't have to do MOT's in SA, sure if the car has been modified beyond recognition they will pull you over and impound your car, but there is no way that they would even know that the car came or didn't come with HID (Xenons) this side of the pond, as long as you have them in projector type lights and they are not neon blue/purple (8000k-12000k). my 6000k lights looks exactly like the new Merc xenon lights, colour wise, sure there are other cars which HID's are whiter, hens why I say above anything between 4000k and 6000k would still be viewed as legal and looks like an OEM part
