    No worries, we don't get either in the Fiesta so was interesting to read about it 😃

    Looks like it's detailed on page 118+ of the user manual - how it's set depends upon the size of the screen. Have you checked this already?

    It's been ages since I looked at my vehicle settings but I think I accessed it through the dashboard display rather than the touchscreen. it's accessed using the buttons on the steering wheel.
  5. I don't know if you're seeing the same thing as me, but I usually have to touch the inside of the door handle for a second before pulling it. Having said that, once the mirrors open out it's usually unlocked at the same time for me. Might be a problem with the locking mechanism on your driver's door if the other doors are working properly (hopefully not).
  6. What's the number on the plugs you've got? These look similar on Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bosch-FR7KI332S-0242236571-Spark-Plug/dp/B0068M2PRU
  7. They may be correct, it's just suspicious that they're Russian.. the fuel over there tends to be lower octane than what we use in the UK (92 is the most popular) and there's a big market in grey parts (fake or substandard parts). Maybe check your reg at https://www.halfords.com/motoring/car-parts/ignition/spark-plugs/ and see if it comes up with the same ones.
  8. My first thought would be that they're not the right plugs for your engine? It looks like they're Russian?? My second thought would be about those bits of metal that have broken/burnt off and may still be rattling around in each cylinder.
  9. Maybe it doesn't like what you're listening to? 😆
  10. Some photos I took as I was wandering around today.. 😀
  11. I bought my last new car in 2019, a Mk8 Fiesta ST. It's going to be the last new car I buy, mainly because of the way the market is moving - more automated controls, more tracking, more regulations, more restrictions, electrification - that's not for me. My Fiesta is my project car as I work from home full time. For anything else, we have a family car that we use. Before this we would have renewed both of our cars every 3 years. A lot of others have told me they're doing the same thing. It's not going to work out well for the industry, I think we'll see a few big names disappear over the next decade or so.
  12. Not my kind of thing either, but it looks like the way things will eventually end up unfortunately.. for most people, there's very little point in owning a car outright (PCP has already changed that business model).
  13. Volvo have been doing it for a while already.. https://www.volvocars.com/uk/care-by-volvo/
  14. Because we always follow whatever rules the EU agree upon..
