  1. That's great managed to find the oil life indicator it's showing 58% and my cars nearly a year old.
  2. Thanks for that will keep in my pocket in future, less likely to forget then Thanks.
  3. Mk8 St lIne since I've owned the car I've always put the key in the compartment in front of the gear lever, do I need to or can I keep the key in my pocket.
  4. Much appreciated thanks for that info.
  5. Is it easy to find the oil indicator? I still need to play around more with the computer bit, I'm a bit old school
  6. I have the 140ps and managing around 44.6 mpg, it depends how it's driven even where you live.
  7. Thanks for that,I didn't know it had one.
  8. Oil Life indicator? do you mean the dip stick.
  9. I bought my car a year ago in March, I have roughly 3900 miles on the clock, the salesperson said the service is every 2 years but I'm sure in the owners manual it said 1 year, Ford dealer are now saying it's due for a service which is a bit eager as I bought the car in March, basically I want advise should I book a first service in March, I 'm thinking it a good idea as it was a new engine, do you also how much they should charge, thank you.
  10. I bought a spare wheel off Ebay, is it right as the overall diameter of the tyre is less than that of my fitted wheels it says T 125/80R 95M, also how to get hold of a fitted scissor jack I just received a generic flat top, would like the fitted one for extra security.
  11. The rolling diameter looks different to, the reason I mentioned I bought a space saver off Ebay and the diameter is smaller, so thought it might be the wrong tyre so haven,t put it in the boot.
  12. That's how I'm feeling at the moment, I would loose to much part exchanging it I have owned it for 8 months, it's just taken away the piece of mind, this my first ever brand new car so was excited with the prospect, at least I have reported the issue so if anything happens because of the leak further down the line I will have proof, apart from this issue I am please with the car and the way it drives, I had a second hand Toyota MR2 Roadster prior to this one that I owned for 12 years and it never let me down and passed all the M.O.T's and that was a soft top that never leaked, time will tell.....
  13. Hi tef89, didn't realise that people were reporting the same issue, I'm leaving it for now as the leak has stopped, I'm not keen having the screen removed again, I normally pick up with some damage leaving it with a garage.
  14. I've had leaking water on the passenger side dripping down the A Pillar, the dealership resealed the windscreen twice and was told it's manufacturing fault yesterday, I was told I need to take it to a body shop now, even if it's repaired not really happy keeping the car due to possible long term damage.
  15. Resealed the windscreen but still have water coming in from the passenger side, I'm extremely disappointed as this is my first ever new car, sadly it's starting to put me off this one.
