    Things I Don't Like

    Had some tool in a bronze coloured, 20 plate Suzuki Swift go flying past me on the inside lane this evening while I was going 70 in my work car. He shortly slammed the anchors on due to two cars in front being parallel with each other at the speed limit and I could see him getting pissy as he started weaving and trying to bully them out of the way. He was even more upset when I lit him up and ticketed him for speeding (95 in a 70 zone) and reckless driving. Btw, it was a hire car because he stacked his company Mercedes three weeks ago and has a pending court appearance due to the crash being speed related (85 in a 60 zone) [emoji1787] Some people are just incapable of learning from their mistakes.

    What a happy ending πŸ‘. This is something I don't understand. How do some people not learn from their mistakes. The amount of people my age I hear with points on their licence. My friends friend back in college I heard had 6 points already on his licence and a friend in uni told me he got 6 points and I knew it was due to driving with no insurance. Honestly I'd never risk it. Best thing with my car is people may take it as a boy racers car so don't bother me as much unless it's someone who doesn't care or is a boy racer. I am getting confident on reporting drivers on their bad driving.

    Cruise Control Lights on Ghia

    in the current covid situation nothing then a bicycle (goodness knows how u guys cope with engineered in traffic chaos) then one of 3 motorbikes then a S500 merc with all the toys, incl TV (most pointless feature ever fitted to a car), radar cruise (that does stop start in traffic), its easily the worlds worse car - seats, ride, handling some 5000% off that of a mk 2 focus, the reliability is by a factor of any vehicle I've ever known, some 10 million % off track. its a total joke of a vehicle.... only is straight line performance is "adequate". it would be cheaper to have a uber on standby (but that would be immoral..)

    I thought something looked off with the S! You've made a decent point there though... I like modified cars, but only when people have thrown a tonne of money on them, mods on a budget rarely works!

    I have also bought a SYNC3 upgrade kit for the Focus, from someone that had done the same to their prefacelift MK3. Question with the asbuilt data for the reprogramming, how come the data for the MK3.5 Tit X I've used has a lot more fields than the one I checked for my car? Is this alright?

    Could be due to the car. I tried looking at dad's insurance on his volvo if he puts me as a second driver. Went up by Β£1200. It's weird how it works. Those still would be good. I had the performance ones before they were in the performance range and then got the new ones as the old ones went wrong. @Zico Paul chaudry finally made a new zayn malik skits πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

    Same here mine is due January 2021 so hopefully all will be back to normal by then but if they want to extend my MOT expiry to July 2021 then that's fine by me!! Saves me Β£50-odd as I know my car is road worthy regardless of having a certificate which is practically invalid as soon as you leave the garage forecourt.

    It looks like a 17 year old boy has access to his Granddad's mobility car and has spent Β£50 on eBay on it, 'S' badge is on upside down (and on the White Fiesta too), that's what really bothers me lol.

    Cassettes always were rubbish... At least vinyl doesn't all unravel the second you eject it! Here's one of the first cassettes I ever bought...I'm pretty sure CDs were mainstream by '99 but I wasn't trusted with them!

    If one of the warning lights comes on, you need to get a diagnostic tool hooked up to read the codes. It is the only way to start to find out what is wrong. These tools are cheap and widely available. Though the best one, especially for some of the more obscure faults that can be behind the Engine System Fault lamp, is Forscan. Costs about Β£20 to Β£30 for the ELM327 adapter and an App, or free download for Windows. It could be a low fuel pressure warning, which could be caused by a clogged filter or leaks in the fuel system. But there are loads of other possibilities. In the picture below, the hose you noted at the reservoir is the vent from the thermostat, which goes to the cylinder block before the thermostat valve, so air bleeds out when filling. So with the stat closed and revving the engine, the water pump will push water back through this hose, which then returns down to the radiator, as I expected. So there is no evidence I can see for CH problems. Pic is from https://ford.7zap.com/en/car/54/no/16/1552/15408/66989/

    I find Siri understands me better. If I’m using Ford Navigation I’ll set destination before leaving. My Glaswegian accent doesn’t help either.

    Didn't want to shuffle our cars around at the moment - the Mrs's is sat in our garage near a socket but mine is outside and not in reach. Worked out I could do it by putting an extension lead through the flap of the letterbox on the front door, then hoping it doesn't rain while it's charging. Might cause the postie a problem, though!πŸ˜€ I have seen a guy whose car was parked at the roadside who had run a cable (using several extension leads connected together) out of his window, across his front yard and the pavement, to a charger sat on his front seat. From there the charger leads ran out through the car side window then under the bonnet which was left slightly open!

    I'd fit a rear dash cam and report them. There's some weird drivers out there. Once dad had someone tailgating him and when he turned into the road he noticed it was an old lady who probably didn't have a clue what she was doing. Seeing peoples responses I think I need to slow down if someone does it to me next though that's likely if they don't have an opportunity to overtake me. Few days back I had a guy in a type R behind me slowing down and booting it coming up behind me. I will say he didn't come up right behind me and kept a decent space behind me. Probably wanted to hear his raspy exhaust πŸ˜‚. Man I've been looking at possible things to do on the fiesta if I am able to keep it. Was looking at the audi style devil headlights and some bola b1 in bronze or gold. Would look πŸ‘Œ.

    I did slow down a bit, but he didn’t seem to get the message! Yeah I tapped the brakes to try and get him to back off, didn’t work! Lol we both ironically stopped for fuel, I went to the next petrol station down because it was cheaper πŸ˜‚ Honestly think this dude was brain dead, as I’ve said above I did try and ease off but he was still trying to join me in the boot! Think an Iveco should be my next purchase 🀣

    Hmm, so it looks like I should start drinking alcohol and eating bacon late at night to gain weight? Sounds like the ideal diet for Ramadan... Sadly bacon is something I can't eat though, anything greasy just runs straight through... So from around 2006 that's meant no fried bacon, no battered fish, no chip shop chips, no KFC, no fried bread/mushrooms/eggs...then a couple of years back I stopped being able to eat fresh pizza as well as it's too cheesy. Maybe I'm suddenly realising why I can't put weight on!! On that note, lockdown should be the ideal time to gain weight...so any ideas for something high in calories, but low in 'bulk' (so no extra sh*t) and moderate fat (so not greasy)...? I'm guessing that pretty much only leaves sugar, which I try to avoid too! πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

    Bought this set from Amazon uk arrived within a few days; not from China directly; uk stock Link: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01FBYFEAU?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_dt_b_asin_title I've took them apart first to see the quality and they do have a cree led chip fitted says cree+ on the chip I've created a guide on fitting them a few years back: The original ones that I fitted were cree aswell; but they started to flash like strobes in the past year or so; I recommend fitting on crimp terminals like I have done as it makes them very easy to replace in time.

    Managed to get a great deal on a full set of st3 seats. So much more supportive than the stock seats. Also grabbed a cheap k&n filter from fleebay and lastly, I have been messing with carbon fibre, and I have tried to mold the steering wheel emblem. definitely not a professional piece but I think imnslowly getting the hang of it. So look out for some more carbon work in the future. Thanks Allan
