  1. I am actually surprised that it has taken google this long to have a partnership with a manufacturer. This makes sense in terms of infotainment, because I bet there are a lot of people like me, when they get in the car they will plug their phone in and just use android auto / apple car play rather than the cars infotainment. This would also make sense with the case of navigation as well. Will have to see how it all gets integrated.
  2. I have been made aware of new changes to MOT in relation to headlights. It looks like putting LED's or HID's into a halogen bulb housing will now fail you. Thought id put this up as I know many on here like me are currently using the CEUK Led bulbs. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/mot-inspection-manual-for-private-passenger-and-light-commercial-vehicles/4-lamps-reflectors-and-electrical-equipment#section-4-1-4 Its in section 4.1.4 "Existing halogen headlamp units should not be converted to be used with high intensity discharge (HID) or light emitting diode (LED) bul
  3. Ive read it on a few threads on hear before (cant find them now), that the mk7.5 gearbox isn't rated for much more torque than is already standard in the 140 engines. I could be completely wrong though. There is always a risk with remapping, but bluefins seem to be popular with the 1.0 ecoboosts and ive not seen anyone have problems with them on here.
  4. From what I have seen, the weakpoint of the mk7.5 is the Gearbox. As long as the gearbox can handle it, then it should be fine.
  5. Hahaha nope. Just added mine onto my parents breakdown policy 🤣.
  6. Madness, Im 1 year and 4 months in. done just over 10,000 miles, didn't even get offered a 1st year check haha.
  7. Thanks for info. Think I will keep looking around for a bit. Think I might leave it until I only have a couple months of ford warranty left.
  8. I have seen this, with about 50nm torque upgrade. Potentially would be looking more at this now. I've sent them an email to check its compatible with euro 6.2 fiestas.
  9. Hi, I'm thinking of using Racechipto remap my fiesta. Has anyone had experience with them before? are they good. They say that I can remove the RaceChip before a service and it would be virtually impossible to tell that the car has had a remap on it. But i'm not too sure.
  10. Thats strange. Once the download started for me. I could fully turn the car off lock it and it would stay connected and do the download. I knew it was connected because we have an app for our router which shows us what is connected. That seems like a pain.
  11. Nope not for me. Ford Pass app still works. But I did have issues with the app a couple of months after I bought the car. It was sorted by the dealer doing a PCM update.
  12. What i did was start the car. Go to automatic updates and it started to download it. I then turned the car off locked it and walked away. It seemed to download that one, and then when i next got in it it started to download the next file for the maps, finished it off when it was back in wifi range. I think it did this about 4 times as there was around 4 seperate files to download
  13. I did the actual sync update via USB, took about 20 minutes. Once I had done that, the maps updated automatically over a few days.
  14. We have a shark, came with loads of attachments for cleaning the car as well. We have had no problems with it.
