  1. Bluetooth Phone Book Contacts

    I've just moved from a Titanium X Fiesta to a Titanium X Business Edition 2014 Mondeo... Did you get any joy with this one? I've looked all over the net and can find people complaining but no solution! Cheers, Gary.
  2. Registration Plate Query - Border Or Not?!

    With and without...! Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app
  3. Hello, I need to replace my horrible Arnold Clark registration plates as they are all water marked, plus they were attached using screws! (Pet hate of mine!) I can't decide if I want the thin black border outline on them or not.. I had them on my silver golf and it looked pretty good, I didn't bother with my red bmw but I think they looked pretty cheap. My fiesta is black and has the chrome front end.. basically I'm looking for some photos of your regy plates! Preferably on a black fezza! I was using the registration plate creator on Demon Plates to 'toggle' the border on and off and I can't decide. Might seem silly but I know it will annoy me if I get it wrong lol. Cheers team, Gary. PS I'll not be putting any stickers or slogans on it and I'll attached them using tape!

  6. Real Mpg Of Ecoboost Engines

    I used one called Road Trip Lite, it was basic but simple. Don't know if it's still about though! Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app

    Willy, What app you using? I used to use 'RoadTrip' for my iPhone but I've not rocked one of them for a year now and never got a replacement Android app! Cheers Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app
  8. Real Mpg Of Ecoboost Engines

    I've got the 125bhp 1.0 ecoboost.. I looked at Honest John and read up on all the 'real life' mpg figures people had submitted. So far since November last year I have always been 40L to fill for about £52. That's using my local Asda for petrol. The car was reading 35 MPG and has slowly creeped up to 40 MPG with my last 2 fills.. PS I reset all my computers at each fill. I do mainly small commutes, I'm about 17 mile round trip to work. No motorway. What that really breaks down to is 300 miles to a tank then I need to think about filling up (50 miles left on computer) Since the weather's got a bit better I've been getting 350 miles and my driving style hasn't changed. I got my car with 4400 miles and it's now about 6200! Im going to try and fill up with the optimum shell fuel the next few times to see if I notice a power increase and or an mpg increase! This car does so much better than my 330D Auto lol so I don't mind experimenting with the fancy fuel.. I feel like I'm cheating when I get a full tank for £50 lol.

  12. Mk7.5 Registration Plate Lights

    I went for the wee £2 ones :D The light cluster you've got is similar to what I had before it my golf! They are really bright! And yeah ABGT was brilliant, I've booked up for SW4 already :) Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app

  14. Mk7.5 Registration Plate Lights

    Hello, I've been doing a bit of reading about replacing my number plate lights on my Mk7.5 Fiesta. Has anyone got photo's of their own? When I had my golf I bought a full LED light cluster from Germany for £40 and to be fair they were cool but super bright. I don't even know if I would go for LED ones on the fiesta, it's just the standard yellow ones make it look so crap at night especially considering they fit it with drl's etc. Oh and where you got them! B) Like I say, I might even opt for brighter bulbs rather than ropy eBay led ones that break, I just want rid of the yellow! Cheers team, Gary.
  15. Help.. Nail In Tyre 205/40R/17

    Just heading down to Kwik Fit at the moment, tyre didn't hold up for the duration of my shift last night so had to pump it up to get home. I'll not manage to make it till Tuesday/Wednesday to try and get a slightly cheaper option. Ah well.. Just when I thought I was in the money when my £0 p/a Road Tax came through!!!
