      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. Intermittent Display

    I'd say it's the LCD panel that's faulty. The backlight is fine. Probably need to change the panel
  2. New car New bulbs

    Do you reckon the Philips last longer than the osram?
  3. New car New bulbs

    I used nightbreaker unlimited until one went s few weeks ago. The lasted about 18 months. The h1 full beams are still in and ok but they obviously don't get as high use
  4. New car New bulbs

    I'm.getting the new seat Ibiza fr 115. Looked at the new fiesta st line but the rediculous price hike really put me off it, that plus the lower spec. I realise there's a forum for seat's but there is nothing like the use of this one. Was just looking for some general advice [emoji16]
  5. New car New bulbs

    Ah I see so if both bulbs are exactly the same the full beam will still go further and be brighter?
  6. New car New bulbs

    Ok so I am getting my new car on Tuesday, unfortunately its not a Ford but I was hoping some of you guys could offer me some advice on the bulbs. So it uses H7 Long Life bulbs for the dipped and H7 bulbs for the full beam. I've been told the technical differences but, as I was going to get Nigthbreaker Lasers if I fit a pair of these to each are they just going to be the same? I.e. If I turn on the full beam will it just be exactly the same as the dipped? Hope someone can advise
  7. One Touch Issue

    You can reset it, can't remember how to do it off the top of my head but I'm sure, if you search, you'll find it. I had the same issue before.
  8. How to remove wax

    I'm want to remove the wax on my car, as in polish. How can I do this to back to the paint. Any ideas? Thanks
  9. Am I the only one who is meh about the MK8?

    The thing that's put me off the new fiesta is the huge price increase. It looks ok, though a bit bland IMHO. To move to the St Line 125 from my Red Edition 140, which has higher spec, is nearly £90 more per month. I don't think it's worth it. I've just signed up to lease a new seat Ibiza fr which, again IMHO, is a far better and speced car.
  10. Question. Dipped beam into leds.

    I had the Night Breaker Unlimited Plus's, They are really very bright and pretty white. However thats the second set thats just blown. I bought them in June 2016. Are the new Lazer's or the philips Xtreme Vision likely to last any longer or are they both likely to be worse as they are brighter yet?
  11. Time to move on?

    Yea however at the moment I don't have any negative equity which is what's attracting me
  12. Time to move on?

    Well my Current 2 Year Old Fiesta Zertec S Red edition has reached 20000 miles but my PCP allowance is 18000 over 3 years (Change of job, change of milage). My settlement figure is pretty much the same as what I can get in a trade in now so looking at changing cars. Went to test drive the new ST Line but there were none avaliable so test drove a 125 PS Zetec. As much as I enjoyed it the quote for a new StLine was £76 per month more than I am currently paying so looks like the Fiesta is out the window. Currently looking at the new Seat Ibiza FR, £3000 (CarWOW) cheaper than than the Fiesta and many more features that are extra on the Fiesta. Not so sure the Ibiza is as well put together but don't want to have such a large increase in my montly payments. I'll miss the Fiesta, have had 3 of them in a row, but money is money and is a bit tighter of late. Any thoughts?
  13. Tyre pressures

    Thanks, I had it right but my car was in for a service last week and It seemed very harsh on the bumps after I took it back. Took it to my local supermarket and checked them and they were way up. Not sure why they had pumped them up so hard.
  14. New Fiesta - 10 speakers?

    Not entirly sure however I would take it as some of them being Co-Axial speakers, I.E. the tweeter is inside the woofer. Pic shows what I mean.
  15. Tyre pressures

    What's the best tyre pressure on my zetec s red edition for general driving? A mix of town and dual carriageway driving with either just myself or a passenger. No other load.
