    I put £35 in the other day and only got 30L. It makes me feel cheated, since although im 17 i can remember the days of 80p a litre and the riots/strikes etc that happened when it reached a £1. Now no one seems to care.

    Ideas For Heat Protecting Airbox?

    Well i had a thought about like cutting the front bit of the cold air feed off. so it still is connected by the two top screws but now it can take air from like all the front rather than one side.

    Ideas For Heat Protecting Airbox?

    Since ford decided to put the air box directly on top of the engine I find that it heats up very quickly, causing performance/mpg drops. Since insurance wont let me change to a cone air filter any ideas on ways O can stop the air box getting hot without invaliding insurance ? :)

    Ideas For Heat Protecting Airbox?

    ok..well would it be a better idea to unplug the cold air feed? since i looked at it today and it seems like ford are very keen to put as much plastic in the way of cold air getting to the stock box as possible.

    Ideas For Heat Protecting Airbox?

    Well there much be some benefit behind it otherwise people wouldn't be so interested in cold air feeds and getting rid of the standard air box.

    Favorite Ever Driving Song

    Naaa Fans ftw. windows just blow my hair all over my face, very hard to drive with that. Ipod is better, you can have all sorts of music and not the rubbishy songs you find cds filled with

    Favorite Ever Driving Song

    Pendulum - Hold your colour. Its a beaut song to have when the sun is shining through the windows and you got a cool breeze coming from the fans.

    What Counts As Modifications?

    Would new pedal cover things count? I dis like the current ones since my foot rides up them so when doing lots of clutch work it gets very tricky and sometimes I stall in the middle of town, which never gets a good response from the people behind And these are like £2.25 :P Sporty asda pedals

    What Counts As Modifications?

    Ive recently put neons my fiesta and then purchased a cone style air filter. I phoned the insurance company who told me i cant put my filter in til im 21 , at the time i forgot to mention the neons. so do neons count as a modification that affects insurance? , since ive read alot they're only bothered by modifications that affect performance(like the air filter) or ones that greatly affect the value (alloys) And if they dont count what else could i get away with before the insurance becomes invalid ?

    What Counts As Modifications?

    You can get adjustable exhaust boxes , so if you driving late at night or in a heavily populated area you adjust it to make low noise. but if you want to show it off you friends or whatever you adjust it to full noise.

    Handbrake Turn

    I'm curious to know what kind of damage you can do to the car when trying to do a handbrake turn. I'll admit I've done it once before but afterwards my friend came up to me and told me it can brake off the rear brakes, needless to say I haven't done it again. Although recently he did the same thing but a lot harder and sharper turn in his Saxo and he didn't seem to mind at all. I've tried googling the question but apart from tyre damage nothing much seems to come up. Note: When i did the handbrake turn it was in an empty car park with no one around so i wasn't being a risk to anyone, apart from myself.
