      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    Not PDF, but digital manuals are here: https://www.ford.co.uk/owner/my-vehicle/download-your-manual?ref=%2F
  2. Mk3.5 dash car picture

    Ford TPMS use 433 Mhz wireless iirc.
  3. Mk3.5 dash car picture

    Some of the TPMS valves Ford use are metal. My ST has metal ones.
  4. Mk3.5 dash car picture

    The TPMS valves can look normal now, not always metal.
  5. Fiesta Mk8 ST-Line dashcam?

    Have you tested to see if the switched live is going off with stop start? Usually it stays on with ignition, regardless of what the engine is doing.
  6. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    They replied to me when I complained, sent a recorded letter to Andy Barratt and heard back from someone at his office.
  7. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    If you want to complain, write to the CEO office at HQ. Don't both with CRC with are a waste of space.
  8. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    Shadow Black is the only black and it's optional on just about every trim level. Style has race red or blazer blue as no cost options, both solid paints.
  9. Does your 3.5 run on rails or a jelly

    Definitely feels better with it off. It hasn't suddenly given the car Fiesta handling, but the assist and feel is now consistent. No longer does it either fight me or feel over servo'd depending on what the PDC was doing, it's just consistent. I can feel what the tyres are doing better now, gives more confidence. Yes, it does mean that you can't lazily drive down a cambered road, you actually have to hold the steering wheel properly and little ruts wiggle the steering wheel now, but it's nothing I wouldn't expect from driving and controlling a car properly. Also I no longer seem to weave on straight roads, or have an off centre steering wheel. I was obviously fighting the PDC before.
  10. Not yet. Production said to start in May.
  11. Official Vid: And some passenger ride tests: https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/new-cars/first-ride-2018-ford-fiesta-st http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/ford/fiesta/102925/new-ford-fiesta-st-ride-review https://www.whatcar.com/news/2018-ford-fiesta-st-review/
  12. LED headlamps

    Focus doesn't have LEDs available yet, but I'm definitely going for them on the Fiesta. After having bi xenon's I don't want to go back to halogen.
  13. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    Depends on the insurer.
  14. Possibly an aftermarket kit that hasn't been wired in properly?
  15. Used ST2 or a Used ST3.. HELP!!

    If I have to have keyless entry on my next car to get the rest of the spec I want, I'm just going ask the dealer to switch the feature off.
