A Sad Day

16 July 2014 - 02:43 PM

Due to unforseen circumstances my trusty mondeo has to be sold on, need to clear the finance and use the money for other things so by the end of the week it will no longer belong to me :-( I am collecting a car this afternoon as a replacement which has been bought outright, hopefully it will be up to the job to keep me and my family safe and sound, will update when I get some pics

Remap - Superchips/bluefin

02 June 2014 - 07:05 PM

Ok Ive found a superchips agent thats close by thats willing to do a deal on remaps on 2 cars, my father wants a map straight on his car but Im toying with getting the bluefin, is it worth the extra money getting it as it appears to be a one hit wonder and cannot load any other maps onto it if I change the car.

 

Any advice will be welcome

What Locking Nuts Are Needed

07 May 2014 - 10:30 PM

I need some replacement locking nuts for my Mondeo, currently have the 18" alloys if that makes any difference.

 

Is it worth going for the mcgard genuine jobbies?  Ive looked on ebay and they say that the size I need is 12 x 1.5, is this the correct ones???

 

Cheers for any help in advance

Mk4 Mondeo Ti X Thread

30 April 2014 - 05:24 PM

Ok so I picked my Mondeo up a week or so ago now and absolutely love it, its a 57 plate 1.8 tdci Titanium X with 59,000 on the clock, one previous owner and fairly well looked after.

 

I have already started to make a few subtle changes and ill post my progress on this thread, so far its had a full detail and ive added mist washer jets, led boot light,  cree led side lights and at the moment trying to find a way of extending the aux lead into the cabin.

 

On order I have got some philips blue vison 501's for the puddle lights and rear number plate.

 

Future plan is to get the wheels refurbed and hopefully get some ideas off this forum.

 

Anyway some pics of the car so far, I will add pics as I go alongs

 

Comments and criticism always welcome

 

Pete

And the unrealistic shine I managed to get just from a quick wash, The Wolfs hard body sealant is doing a cracking job there

Next job was to take a look at the cabin filter, I have fully cleaned the interior and there was still a musty smell so I was pretty sure the filter was to blame, I ordered a set off euro carparts and collected it within the hour, a very handy service,  having looked at a couple of guides I took out the glovebox, dropped the fuse box enough to get access the following picture is pure filth!!!!!!!!!!

Safe to say it was the problem and now Im having nice clean air, I have also booked a mobile guy to come out on Friday to re gas the air con so I will hopefully have some nice cold air coming soon

 

Update :-  Jaguar Proteus alloys, not sure what to do with them as yet but all in pretty good nick
