  1. So a couple of things have happened. My life currently is mental so updates and forum use are at an all time low. Ive had a couple of issues recently. The thermostat housing leaking coolant. Fixed this and my starter motor went. Also fixed this. Apart from this it's so far been a great car. I've also been quoted a decent premium with brentacre this year again as usual. Great company and highly recommend. Got a further 30hp increase on the policy and £40 cheaper than last year's cost. Meaning in the coming months I'll be installing a gtc1244vz and I'm hoping a standard clutch will be ok with the correct map. It's my daily drive and I've had paddle clutch's in the past and in my opinion aren't nice for daily driving. So if I have to sacrifice a little toque for it I will happily do so. Plan is to keep it super drivable and more powerful this year, decided to push and book a couple of track days and autosolos as they come up when I'm off and also planning a trip to Germany in may, which has been a dream of mine since I heard about the ring.

  2. So my stater motor has gone. I'm almost 100 percent certain hear are the same as the 1.6 hdi 207. The teeth on the starter may be different but I doubt it. Does anyone know for sure. Only reason I ask is I have one in stock. They're the same engine exactly. Only difference is they run a different gear box, but the casing for the starter is actually on the engine anyway.

  3. Man that sucks. Sometimes the wheels are scrap like mine. Sometimes they can get away with a balance. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  4. I did buy a new set of wheels btw. Slow updates due to you know. Life n stuff. Starter motors gone I think. Anyone know the compatibly against the PSA stuff. As in the 207 1.6 hdi starter the same. I'm assuming they are. Only difference I could think may be the flywheel Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  5. Sort of an update on this. A friend of mine got this and is now repairing it in his workshop. I'll update when he knows the score with it. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  6. They do some 16s off the eco sport. Has a look earlier. Rocking horse ***** though. The pug fitment ones will indeed fit. 10mm more poke than I have now though and I don't think that I can get away with it. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  7. Yeah ***** my wheel. Does anyone know if 16 inch steelies exist? Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  8. Hit a pot hole last night. Definitely bent a wheel. I think I've also snapped a spring. I'll get it on a ramp during the course of today and give it a look over. Means it'll be on its 3rd set of wheels now. [emoji23]. Ford make ***** wheels. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  9. So race day has been and gone. I didn't come last which was my main aim. [emoji23]. Auto solo. Lot harder than track driving. The fiesta is not made for it. Well this one. In fact the main issue of the day was the ePAS it didn't react fast enough and kept going stiff due to the high demand on it. The guys there purposefully don't run this system for the exact reason. By the end of the day I was about 3 seconds slower than the ST on a tight course lasting around 50 seconds a run. This is a huge difference on these courses. The main issue was the pas. Having to go wide to allow the steering to keep working. I've decided it was such good fun that me and a friend are joint buying a small jap thing to race in next year's season. All he Yaris, sirions, Ignis sports etc were ***** most people. They're light, full electronic steering and the gearing is mainly leave in second and Kane it. Interestingly it was mostly standard cars there. I now know why. The courses are rough as hell and I felt bad for my fiesta. I got a couple of scratches from 1 event. So I need a.second vechile for this Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  10. Race day tomorrow. All cleaned. One other fiesta also enterd. St150 Mk6 so.should be interesting comparing times. If I don't come dead last. I'll count it as a successful day. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  11. My mates went to look at/buy today. If I had the money to risk I would but I'm saving up for a workshop. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  12. Tyres, cat, headlight level device. It's a toss up. Basically it's a lot of money for me to sit on and if a workshop comes up I want a deposit ready to go. Not tied up in a car. If they take an age to sell. That's pretty much answers my question. It's why I asked he [emoji23] Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  13. Had a look on eBay they go for strong money still. Debating if I could buy and and IF I would be willing to let it go. Considering I've always wanted one Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  14. As title. For £1000 guys leaving the country. What sort of money do these go for if I was to repair. It's sea grey and in fair condition Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  15. Not much has really happened to the car. Just been enjoying it while it's working as it should. I do have a small update though. I'm booked on my first auto solo race ever on the 20th of October. In this. Which will be interesting Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
