    My car only has trip metre as a toggle and want to have MPG too, is this possible?

    Hi,   I have a 2009 Ford Fiesta Edge (I think) and currently it only has total miles of car and trip which I can reset with a toggle on the MPH Dash. However, I can see that the little screen has the LED options for MPG, Miles to empty and other stuff but can't flick through to them (as I assume the edge doesn't come with this option). Is there a way of making these work??

    Need help removing airbox from mk8 fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost

    I thought all I needed to do was remove the maf sensor, hose pipe and the cold air feed and I'd be able to pull the airbox out. However there seems to be some cabling down to the bottom left of the airbox keeping it in and I'm not sure what it is or what to do with it. Cant find any videos or anything with it involved. Any help's appreciated

    Putting a petrol ST back-box on a diesel Car

    Hi!, I have recently added an ST diffuser/apron to my 2016 TDCI Fiesta. I am now trying to address the exhaust end. The standard exhaust back box has to outlet bent over to point down and to the side. I cant fit a decorative end to this! I want to change the backbox only (not the Cat) could I use a standard petrol backbox on a diesel engine? If I can there are loads of types I could fit, may or may not require an adapter/taper coupling, but that's ok.  I'm struggling to find

    Mk8 St Line tyres - PS4 speed rating?

    I'm trying to replace the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres on my Fiesta. Currently fitted are 205/45ZR17 88W XL. It seems to be quite hard to find stock of this exact spec. - the 205/45ZR17 88Y XL seem more common, am I correct to assume that this small difference in speed rating (higher) will make no difference?
