  1. I've got the facelift fiesta, to re-set the mpg do as iNath said
  2. Spare Wheel / Foam

    This is going to sound like a really silly question but here goes: I am (hopefully) picking up my new Fiesta tomorrow. Ford etis says "with spare steel wheel" I didn't request one and I haven't been charged for one, is it safe to assume I will get the spare wheel? (Otherwise I'm keeping the spare wheel from my current car)
  3. Spare Wheel / Foam

    Well, I took everything out .... just collected the car and it has a spare wheel, now I have 2!! Bf says I should just take the old one back and say he removed it - awkward!
  4. Spare Wheel / Foam

    Sorry, I'm not explaining myself properly, I've taken the tyre out my current car, and under that wheel there is a foam piece with the tools in it - do I take the whole thing out before I get the new car or do I just take the tools out of it?
  5. Spare Wheel / Foam

    Sorry if I'm sounding stupid - the spare wheel fits over the polystyrene thingy, so I take all that out? I'm getting the Titanium 1.0l 125ps. The one in my pic is my first Fez, currently have a 1.6 Titanium, love it to bits so I hope the new one won't disappoint. Dealers are being a proper pain, I'm meant to be picking it up tomorrow but there's an issue with the Insurance and despite hassling them I still haven't got an answer. My salesman was brilliant but he's off on paternity leave and no one else seems to care as obviously not their deal!!
  6. Spare Wheel / Foam

    Mick, there is a grey coloured polystyrene thing in the well, with I assume are the tools in it - should I take all that out? How are you liking the ecoboost engine?
  7. Spare Wheel / Foam

    Thank you, I thought that too. Okay next question then..... If you get the foam, is the space in the boot completely empty, or is the tool pack still there? I've taken my spare wheel out but wonder if I need to take the tools out too
  8. Problems With Bluetooth Audio

    You just beat me to it! Mine seems to have updated and is displaying the track names, just need a decent length drive to ensure it doesn't drop like before (March 11 titanium, sony head unit and iPhone 4S)
  9. Problems With Bluetooth Audio

    I'm sure someone on the Apple site had the same story as Mark - no updates yet, come back in six months. Maybe Apple will put in a fix
  10. Problems With Bluetooth Audio

    I've got the Sony head unit in a March 2011 titanium. I don't think I'd have any joy asking the dealer to update the software. I asked them to do that at my first service for my previous Zetec and they said they didn't know what I was talking about. Back to using the cables I think
  11. Problems With Bluetooth Audio

    I got the 4S, no track names were displayed, then after a few songs it came up error reading device and wouldn't play anymore
  12. THE Fiesta Detailing Thread

    They did say 'fresh' wax, so perhaps they assumed it was going on straight after as opposed to waiting a few hours
  13. Really Bad Mpg 1.25 Mk7 Cant Hit 40Mpg

    I never got above 40mpg in my 1.25. Usually did town driving and was always around 30. Got above that on out of town drives. My 1.6 is more economical than the 1.25
  14. Fiesta Parking Sensors - Problem

    I have sensors on mine and they don't beep when selecting reverse (11 plate Titanium)
  15. Connect Phone To Ford Audio

    From memory only, I think you go into the phone menu and there is a connect phone option
  16. Frozen White, Owners Opinions Pls

    Thanks Dan - still browse, just don't post much anymore.
  17. Mk7 Wedding Car - Wish Me Luck!

    Good luck Dan - have a brilliant day
  18. Frozen White, Owners Opinions Pls

    Previously had a Hot Magenta Zetec and now have a Frozen White Titanium. HM didn't need cleaned as often as the white, but when the white is clean it is stunning. Agree with Dan, proper protection and shampoo beats the bugs and not so much a prob with swirls
  19. How Long Did You Wait?

    I'm in sunny Edinburgh too!
  20. How Long Did You Wait?

    Motocross - I see you are in Edinburgh, where did you buy it from? I got my new one 4 March this year, I ordered it around the end of January. It was a factory order, White titanium, 1.6, keyless, body kit and reverse parking sensors. The build date was originally the 11 February which then changed to around 20th or so (That's my old one in the pic!)
  21. Mk7 Scuff Plates

    I have the Lockwood ones with no branding - really just there for protection and so much cheaper
  22. Folding Door Mirror

    I thought you were buying a titanium? They come as standard
  23. Fiesta 1.6Tdci Titanium

    I've not checked under the bonnet of my new car, wonder if I have an engine cover?
  24. Anyone Seen An 11 Plate Fiesta Yet?

    One Land Rover and my own new Titanium :P
  25. Air Con

    Agree with Keith - just keep it on all the time!
