  1. Again, I’m sure if a 911 was only using 5% throttle and not trying, I could keep up if I was thrashing the hell out of my car. [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. But what you actually said is that the 1.1 can keep up with a 140 Ecoboost, which I think is where all the confusion has come from. My 100 Ecoboost can keep up with a Bugatti Chiron when we're both doing the speed limit on UK roads too! 😉
  3. Every keyless entry car I've had did the same thing. I think that the volume of water just activates the sensors quite easily is all, so I tend to leave the key in the garage or something whilst I was the car.
  4. I guess the drone will depend on a lot of things. Since the system in the newest ones has cats as well as the new filter, I imagine the drone would be less than in years gone by anyway. My last car had 5 resonators/silencers as standard and a Miltek took it down to two with no drone. So just depends I guess! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Don’t know all the circumstances but the ones I’ve noticed are when turning the wheel below about 20mph, when the indicator is on around the same speed, whether the wheel is turned or not, and also when the car is put in reverse it would appear. I’m not a fan either, I’d love to be able to turn them off without having to plug anything into the car but I don’t think it’s possible? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I was wondering the same thing, I’m glad someone else asked the question! Haha. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Agreed. I also have two completely separate trip counters that can store different miles and mpg and such as well, I’m assuming that’s not what he’s talking about? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I only ever get above 40 mpg on a longer run. At the minute mine is sitting at 36-38 mpg doing my 9 mile commute to work and 9 miles home each day. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I believe that's exactly it. 🙂 As for the ticking/rattling, I'd say it's likely the injectors because with the higher pressures they run on fuel systems these days the injectors make more noise as they activate but it's totally normal if that's the sound you're hearing.
  10. To be honest, I've never owned a turbo car where the turbo didn't glow quite a lot when the car is pushed. My S4 that I had just before the Fiesta could be seen glowing from under the heat shield pretty easily. And my older Astra VXR had a turbo that looked the same as yours after driving 6 miles at 60mph in 6th gear to my girlfriends house! Haha.
  11. From what I can make out, they both perform well but the MARM246 is better above the 900° region. I don't know what the exhaust gas temperatures (EGTs) of the engine would be in general, but if your car is mapped (like mine) and you don't thrash it on a regular basis you would never see a turbine failure as a result of that specifically, I'd hazard. Short bursts here and there likely wouldn't be enough to seriously degrade the material but sustained hard driving would likely see an issue in the longer term due to sustained higher EGTs. That's just my views though.
  12. Gotcha, I didn't see the 4°C bit though, but maybe just didn't look in the same place as you had been. 🙂
  13. Odd, my manual actually says: Note: To reduce humidity build-up inside your vehicle, do not drive with the system switched off or with recirculated air always switched on.
  14. Completely agree, the AC should be run to dry out the air if you're having condensation issues. People had this a lot with the last car I had (Audi A4/S4 platform) but turned out they weren't leaving the climate control on auto with the AC and once they left it to do its thing it fixed the problem.
  15. My 100PS ST-Line X has discs all round...
