  1. Door Damage, Some Nice People About

    A good public flogging sounds good to me haha. Took the car to the body shop today. Need a new door and the whole passenger side resprayed. Its going to cost in the region of £800... Glad I'm fully comp. I give a statement to the cops the other day, the office told me that another 3 cars in the street had got the same treatment... absolute scum.
  2. Door Damage, Some Nice People About

    True cal, can't get them to pay up if they don't have a wrap to their name. Unfortunately it's usually the case with vandalism like this. Sorry to hear about your sisters car. Sickening to think that the crack head will probably be having a laugh about it with his mates. Restoration justice seems like a waste of time, more likely a badge of honour for some of these low lifes
  3. Door Damage, Some Nice People About

    Take a real scumbag to do something like this. Luckily it happened right in view of a cctv camera. The car parked in front had its windscreen smashed too. I'm going up the the cops today to give a statement so hopefully whoever done it is known and won't get away with it. Probably wishful thinking though.
  4. Just returned to my car to discover that someone has kicked the door panel of my new fiesta black edition. Nightmare guys. Anyone had any experience with people kicking their car? I'm really annoyed right now. Only 600 miles on my new car and now the door has been dented so badly that the whole panel has left a gap between the window about 1-2 inches thick. To add insult to injury, I had just spend 5 hours the previous day cleaning, claying and waxing the car. What should I do? :'(
  5. New Fiesta Range - Red & Black Editions

    I have been having some issues with my black edition (main issue, I wish I had got the Red :D). When I accelerate the car seems to cut out for 1-2 seconds and then its good to go again. I took it into Ford and the told me they found an issue with the audio head unit and reprogrammed it. But they couldn't find any other issues. Slightly annoyed as the i was still having the problem, I brought it back and they told me they would take it in for a few days this week and see what they can do. On Saturday night I went to get a dirty chinese at 12.30am and when I collected my grub and returned to my car it was dead as a dodo. It turned the key and the lights flashed once then nothing. Panic stations... Got out of the car in pouring rain and opened the bonnet. Checked the battery and found the connection was very loose. Tightened it with my hand and away the car went. Would anyone think that the loose battery connection cause the car to cut out when accelerating? I'm hoping that was the problem all along. But to me it seems strange that the car would have a battery issue when the engine is running. PS sorry for long post
  6. Splitters And Brows

    Looks good. Love the ST alloys and rear splitter, would love to get some for my Black Edition
  7. Fiesta Zetec S 1.0 Ecoboost 0-60

    Yes and No. The 140 has slightly more meaty sound than the ZS and the ride is virtually identical. As for the power, it is noticeable but because the gearing is slightly different the 0-62 are very similar as you have to change to 3rd at around 55-57mph. In 3rd tho, the 140 just wants to go compared in the ZS
  8. Fiesta Zetec S 1.0 Ecoboost 0-60

    With my Ecoboost 125 I could get around 9.4secs when timing it with a obdII device bluetoothed to my phone. That is still quicker than what ford advertised. Interestingly in my new Black Edition 140 I can only manage 9.5 :S. To be fair tho, there is still only 500miles on my new car so I hope it improves and maybe my driving it improves too :P
  9. New Fiesta Range - Red & Black Editions

    Thanks Ffoxy, I'll have a search for it.
  10. New Fiesta Range - Red & Black Editions

    Last month I replaced my pride and joy white Zetec S ecoboost with a new Black Edition. Loved my old car bought thought a change would be nice. Took delivery of the black edition on the worst possible day, snowy/rainy/general crap weather. My first impressions were that the car drove better than the Zetec S but probably looks a bit tacky compared to my old one. Still liking it though. Now for the negetive; The car keeps cutting out or losing power under heavy acceleration :S. The radio will cut out, the lights on the dash will come on and all the dials will go to 0. It will cut out for only 1second or so and then go back to normal. It seems to be a intermitted problem. Bringing it in tomorrow for them to have a look at it. Hopefully its something simple. Anyone else having any similar issues? Wish I got an ST :|
  11. Zetec S Ecoboost 1.0

    Hi guys, I've had my zetec s since April now. Really loving it so far. Only getting about 40.7mpg though. It's a lot lower than I was sold on to the honest. Not going to complain too much though, still love the car. Can anyone tell me if there are plans for a mountune kit for Ecoboost zetec s? I would jump on it if there was a kit available.
  12. New Fiesta Ecoboost Groan When Reversing

    I have noticed this. There is a groan while reversing. I also have issues getting into reverse gear, sometimes taking several attempts. This a caused me to grind the clutch several times thinking the car is in gear when it's not... Have you experienced is too?
