Auto Headlights Faulty Already?

31 May 2014 - 07:43 PM

Hey all. So, I've had my Fiesta just over a week. Is it just me or should the auto headlights not actually be on in this situation? But there they are! Full headlights in decent daylight.

And the photo makes it appear there's more shadow than there actually was.

Sync And Siri: A Match Made In Hell?

27 May 2014 - 04:59 AM

So, got my new Fiesta last week and loving everything about it so far. I've even managed to get both iPhones connected up through Sync to stream music, accept calls and - to my surprise - notify of, and read, text messages. "Excellent" thinks I, I can then use Siri to reply to incoming texts since I know Sync doesn't support outbound speech to text on my phone.

And there lies my (possible) problem. I've only tried it once so far but it seems that with the iPhone connected to Sync, Siri is next to useless. I tried activating Siri with the holding of the home button, and the phone beeped as it should, then it started dialling what Sync said was an unknown number although the name displayed was my own.

So, my question: does Sync override the default behaviour of the iPhone and make Siri useless or was it just a glitch? I was listening to DAB at the time not a Bluetooth audio source if that makes any difference.

Sync: Heavy Drain On Phone?

23 May 2014 - 11:11 AM

Hey all. Anyone else notice what appears to be a huge hit on the phone battery when using Sync to play music? I just had mine drain by 15% on a 20 minute drive. When playing through a standard Bluetooth headset I can go for hours on 10%


It's a cracking feature, but not a lot of use if the phone goes flat after an hour!

Anyone Had The 2014 Titanium Heated Seats Option

15 April 2014 - 06:44 AM

Morning all,

I tried a quick search on this, but while there's a lot of threads about after market seats I didn't find what I wanted so....

As the title really. Anyone here take the heated seats option in a 2014 Titanium without also upgrading to leather seats? If you did, are they standard style seats or the sports style ones from the X? I know what answer I want, but I'll see what answers I get before revealing.


New Titanium On Order - How To Fill 6 Weeks?

12 April 2014 - 01:18 PM

Ordered my new Titanium 1.5 TDCi 5 Door in Deep Impact Blue + extras (really wanted the leather seats but couldn't justify the extra for that extravagance) on 4th April. Got the call this week that estimated build date is 28th April, with delivery 3-4 weeks after that.


As I said elsewhere on here today, I've been really struggling to find decent photos of cars in this colour. Mainly, it seems, because the colour seems to shift so much between light and dark depending on the lighting angle. So much so even photos of the same car seem to look different as the owner moves around it. The ones I have seen it looks nice, so hopefully I chose right.


Anyhoo, the problem now is how do I fill 6 weeks of wait time without going nuts? Ideas and suggestions cos I'm already impatient!  :)
