    Back in Business with a Ford!

    I will be getting the windows professionally tinted. Rear of course. Usually comes with a lifetime warranty and no bubbling. We still miss and love England, plenty of family in the liverpool area. We are only now addapting the european Titanium spec name, otherwise it's SE or SEL(top model) Circumstances just change i'm afraid, so i just take my roots with me.
  4. Last time i write on this forum i was selling my Ford Fiesta Titanium 60 plate and went for a Honda Civic. Circumstances changed and i sold it and moved to the United States. I have just recently picked up a Ford C-Max Full Electric Hybrid. This is an engine that needs to be in the uk, god is it good for city driving. I've been 600miles so far and haven't filled the tank once since i purchased it on Friday.

    Importing Fiesta Sedan?

    It would be nice to see a sedan version of the fiesta imported. You'd be unique for sure!

    New Tyres

    Sorry they don't do 195/50 16's Jerry. As much as i would say this size will be better for stability. The 195/55/15 will improve comfort. The actual tyre is very grippy and has been amazing for the climate we have right now. If it gets worse it can only get a little better. Cross climate all around has felt quite nice from summer tyres. I'm sorry i never got to try these on the fiesta before i sold it. My civic would slip and slide on slick roads. The actual tyres is rock solid. I love it.

    Tires Tires Tires... Go Larger?

    I wouldn't of thought 195 -> 205 would fit considering this only increased the width making them wider. You are better staying with 195/50/16. This is used on 2013+ models. It does take the speedo up 3.26%. That will knock the speedo out considerbly more. I went from 195/45/16 to 195/55/15 2.41% more It is suggested to not take it any more or less than 2.5% from factory fitted otherwise you'll likely need a speedo recalibration.What an incredible difference on smoothness when it comes to bumps and pot holes. Remember the second digit always increases the size of the tyre. The width wouldn't do much apart from rub on the arches when turning the wheel.

    New Tyres

    Michelin cross climate they feel very grippy, wet and dry warm and cold. Wish i had done it a long time ago. Saves you having to worry about a really bad winter and not being prepared while the prices go up and the stock runs low. Hopefully we won't have a seriously bad winter for awhile but be prepared. Still perfect in summer weather here in devon in September almost october as well!

    Climate Control Resets Itself

    Mine had been known to occasionally reset it self back to 22 and turn the A/C on. Usually i have it on Auto 20 / AC OFF. Not sure what does it. It didn't happen frequently. I just know it did reset itself back to 22 with the a/c on. The oddest behavior i ever had was fan blowing at full speed when i would start the car. I eventually found taking the fuse out of the glovebox and reinserting it fixed this. Otherwise it's shouldn't be anything to worry about. If it was doing it more frequently i'd question it.

    Squeaking When Reversing

    The first reply might be right it could possibly be a bearing but i would of thought it would of done it in both directions. If you have looked could you post a quick video via youtube? Might give us a better understanding. Maybe top strut mounts for suspension as well that has been known to make a clicking type noise. Little bit of play in that side. Hope you get on well and find it.

    Squeaking When Reversing

    Click noise? Check for a stone or nail in tyre. Does the squeak happen when pressing the brakes in reverse?

    I Sinned A Month Ago...

    Gosh no. Honda Civic 2.2 diesel. I was eyeing a Ford Focus. I wanted the newer shape but in Titanium and couldn't accept the extra cost.

    I Sinned A Month Ago...

    I feel guilty but i needed a bigger car. I hope the new owner enjoys her because i had zero issues and maintained it to the highest. It was sold 2 week after doing so.

    Mk7 Brake Discs

    i hope i've read this topic right Brake disc/pads worn @ 10,000 miles? 62 plate? My brake bads didn't need replacing until 45,000 miles. 60 plate and at the 3rd year service. Disc didn't need to be replaced but i did it anyway. Something is not right there.

    Am I Being Too Fussy

    If it was part of the accident, do not accept. Take it back and tell them you want it fixed.
