  1. We do this one over and over again... This thread has some good info and links to wheels- https://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/topic/106436-mk-8-spare-wheel/#comments
  2. I updated to F9 and for now am staying firmly where I am- I've got everything just how I like it and it's very rare that you truly get lost when a sat nav doesn't agree with a bit of new road. Plus I've got about 40 destinations points saved and I don't fancy putting them all in again if I were to do an update!
  3. Definitely drive it and listen for suspension knocks, that was a big one by the time my 2008 had to go.
  4. This thread is for the Mk8, but there's lots of good info there. I'd go for the space saver- building your boot floor up with wood or whatever is just nuts IMO! https://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/topic/106436-mk-8-spare-wheel/
  5. Fair comment, can't hurt though to remind people from time to time, or to flag it for anyone new to having a keyless vehicle.
  6. Not new news, but as it is in the media again today...look out for yourselves, friends. https://news.sky.com/story/police-warn-of-rise-in-keyless-car-thefts-as-cctv-shows-thieves-stealing-mercedes-in-60-seconds-12361152
  7. Perhaps extremes of temperature are affecting them, given the current weather in most areas in the UK?
  8. Yeah- my 67 plate Titanium is essentially stock and I think it's a superb car.
  9. It's an age-old argument, isn't it- spending lots of money to make a car look like something it still isn't, and will never be...
  10. My space saver rests face down held by a simple home made clamp, and then in and around it I carry the jack and brace, a small foot pump, tow rope, towing eye, jump leads, a small first aid pouch, rubber gloves, a few simple hand tools and some bungee cords...all comfortably under the boot floor! (...and I'll be a happy man if I never need a single item from under there. The peace of mind is worth any small weight penalty.)
  11. Tricky one...TBH, it doesn't sound like it 'struggles' to me, as such, it's just spinning for a second (if that) before firing. Is this as 'bad' as it gets? Mind you, mine often surprises me with how quickly it starts on pressing the button.
  12. Regarding jacks, as you have a Vignale then you'll be fine with the same type that I have - the ebay link above from Unofix will suit you perfectly.
  13. I got stuck in a loop doing mine; in the end I used the downloads and much help from these guys- https://cyanlabs.net/
  14. I use one of these in my Mk8- it's absolutely tiny which means I can't accidentally whack it or anything like that. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07MDXBT87/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  15. Thanks! It was the best I could do with the material, really.
