  1. Yay or nay guys? Heres the link. http://www.ebay.co.u...=item416ce756e7 I reckon this looks pretty good, would of rather had a curve in the middle to accommodate the ford badge but a simple mod at a decent price.

  3. Opinions On New Fiesta

    http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201212034487354/sort/default/usedcars/quantity-of-doors/3/colour/red/maximum-age/up_to_3_years_old/model/fiesta/make/ford/onesearchad/used/onesearchad/nearlynew/onesearchad/new/postcode/sp47xu/radius/1501/keywords/style/page/4/advert-type/standard-listing?logcode=ucbnp Mine looks so dated now, got it for another 20 months as well. Is there any chance ford will offer me a new one say 12 months down the line? I'm on a pcp contract.
  4. New Owner Of Focus Mk2.5

    Welcome mate! Fantastic car you've got there, especially in zetec trim. Enjoy!
  5. I'm Leaving :(

    How did you get into working for Audi if you don't mind me asking. I'm 19, 20 in January. I always was under the impression that you had to be at least 21 due to insurance purposes. It's a career i'd like to pursue.
  6. Goodbye Fiesta Van

    No way can't that be a write off, seen 5+ year old cars with more damage than that and still repaired :/
  7. Can I Put 17" Wheels On My Fiesta Studio?

    Everytime I change my policy for mods and stuff it costs me an admin fee of £12! But makes you think how many cars are on the road with un-declared mods. How many cases are there where insurance companies don't pay up because of mods.
  8. Can I Put 17" Wheels On My Fiesta Studio?

    Who has actually told there insurance companies about dmb badges? not being funny but that's too the extreme, shall I tell my insurance company i've changed the wheelcaps, de-badged and put a stubby ariel on it?
  9. Best bet is to look on ebay for mk6 fiestas that are being broken up. Ring them up and state what parts you want.
  10. Goldenleaf's Discreet Mods

    Nice car mate! I used to have a 2006 MK2 1.8TDCI. Brilliant car, and 45-50mpg! Unfortunately, had too many miles on the clock and needed alot of work! I did a few mods, body coloured the plastics, st replica alloys, mk2.5 rear lights. rear tints, mk2.5 zetec seats (trust me will transform the interior), mk2.5 stereo. Could post up some pics if you want. I miss my focus! anyone wanna swap a mk7 fiesta for a mk2.5 focus? aha.
  11. Can I Put 17" Wheels On My Fiesta Studio?

    I've got a 2012 studio mate and I reckon a few little mods are all that's needed. I wouldn't go to lengths of putting bodykits on. My plans are to: Body colour the handles and mirrors, Tint the back windows (already done), Asian grill, Zetec s alloys Fairly cheap mods that will transform the car.
  12. New Econetic Revving By Itself?

    When coasting in my 1.25 fiesta i've noticed that the revs are around 1250rpm rather than 750rpm usual idling.
  13. New Ford Showing Everyone How Its Done

    Would love to own one of these! Dream car!
  14. I'm Back!!!!

    This forum seems pretty dead now mate aha!
  15. Flip Key

    Good guide mate, very useful!
  16. Looks in good condition mate, credit to your uncle. Most people don't look after there cars one bit, me included.
  17. Doubt you'd damage the car, as long as it's not being laboured. In fact it's probably better for the clutch and gearbox as it's been used less. I've actually seen cabby's use this technique. Personally i'd just stick to the shift indicator and the instant mpg computer. Can't really go wrong.
  18. Mk7 Rs Style Bonnet Lip

    I've taken the plunge and ordered one. Mine is a stock 1.25 studio. Will post pictures soon.
  19. Metal Engine Run In Tips

    I can't remember any burning smell lol. I don't know if this is just luck but put the car on a friends dyno yesterday and its producing 64bhp, 4-5 more than standard. Only done 2k and its completely standard apart from a k&n air filter. Maybe this theory about the ecu learning your driving style is correct.
  20. Metal Engine Run In Tips

    The engine is run in at the factory but I suppose sticking below a reasonable RPM such as 3500 wouldn't do any harm. Personally, I've drove my car like I've stole it from day one. I know that I won't be keeping the car past 2 years. In terms of oil changes isn't there a optional 1 month, 1000 miles inspection? If your really worried take it to ford and they'll do anything necessary.
  21. As the title says, anybody know how to remove the outer door handles on a mk7 fiesta. Looking to body colour them. Any help would be highly appreciated, cheers.
  22. Fiesta Mk 7 MPG

    I've not been that impressed with my 1.25 fuel economy, however it's only done 400miles as of yet. How long intill I can expect better fuel economy?
  23. Out With The Old .....

    I love my fiesta, but I can't help feel i'd be ready for something new after 2-3 years. Especially in this guys case where it's exactly the same car. I'm not putting him down or anything, just consider the options when ford calls.
  24. Out With The Old .....

    I expect your signing up to another 12/18 month contract however.
  25. Out With The Old .....

    Seems like the white fiestas are very much in demand. That's why you were most likely offered an upgrade.
