  2. Ok could have done a search but im feeling ill at the mo so cannot be arsed!!! idot Max has managed to swtich the radio off of FM to AM - i know its something simple like pressing the arrow but ive tried numerous things and I cant get it back onto FM - HELP ME PLEASE before I hit him ha ha ha ha
  3. I had my service Sunday and was told that there was an outstanding recall on my car - no one had contacted me about it though. Apparently it was something to do with a wire crossing the brake servo, they just had to clip it up out of the way, they said it was nothing "major". Glad its been done though.
  4. Had my car a year today, its gone so quick, I still love her as much today as I did then, ok I had a very rough time between April and Sept with Mountune problems but thankfully thats all behind me now, I still weekly get asked about my car, I still get raced at the traffic lights and I still get followed by the men in cars similar colour to mine waiting for me to do something wrong ha ha ha. Those waiting for your new babies, you wont be dissapointed but sorry to hear you have all missed out on driving one for the last year :P :P :P . I have still to see a car identical to mine on the road - I know Rob has the upgrade but he didnt have the appearance pack. Happy 1st Anniversary to Mo the 140 ZS
  5. Johnny, I didnt book it at Erith, I just used Erith and your price to prove it can be cheaper elsewhere, she then knocked her price down to match. I am booked in at Rayleigh next Sunday afternoon. Thanks for the heads up about the bodywork check, will make sure I get both stamps in the book. Hard to believe ive had my babe a year now - although only really getting to enjoy her fully the last month after the amount of hassle I had with the mountune upgrade.
  6. Well its booked in for a week sunday, I phoned them this morning and said I wasnt happy with £162 and I mentioned my friends Cmax and apparently that was cheaper because its over 3 years and they were doing a special MOT/Service price. I told her that Johnny Mac had paid £125 at Erith (which is within 20 mins from me too) and with that she dropped the price with them to £125 I was amazed she knocked £40 off just like that ha ha.e I wanted to stick with Ford service because of having it on the options plan I wasnt sure werether I had to or not. I dont want to sign up to any plans either, as I aint sure how long we will keep the car - we did plan on keeping her forever and ever after having the mountune upgrade, but I know how bored we get with our cars ha ha. Cheers for you replies x
  7. Mine has been fine and dandy since the recall - thank god!!! although I know Rob is still experiecing the same problems after the recall
  8. Hi everyone, hope your all well and cars are behaving!!! ive been getting phone calls from my dealership for the last month saying I need to book my service, ive left it until now as I got the car a year ago next week and its only done 7k miles, so been holding out as long as possible, anyway ive been quoted £162 for it, which I think is a lot for a first service, speaking to someone at work who used same dealer for the cmax and they only paid £135 for a service MOT and £20 back in sainsburys vouchers. What price have you been quoted (obviously those who have needed to have one already) and also what level of service do I need ie Minor or Major Cheers x
  9. I would like to add before I had the Moutune upgrade I went back to the Fords saleswomen who sold me my car 4 months previous, and asked if it was ok to do this - she said it was 100% fine to go ahead and that it did not affect my finance plan one bit. I dont agree about the car being thrashed so Fords wouldnt want it back, I never thrash my car its my baby :o :o
  10. Hi guys just to let you know my car was put better by Mountune a few weeks back and its 100% fine. Hard to believe its now in proper working order, took 6 months to get there but I can now drive it knowing its not going to lose power at any time. Although Rob did scare me by saying that maybe because the weather is now cooler that has a lot to do with it - grrr im hoping that is not the case lol. Hope your all well Michelle x
  11. When we had the big white stuff back in Feb, my Mo was only 2 months old, far too young to go playing out in it, so I left her snug as a bug in a rug tucked up in the garage, much safer - then I cadged a lift to work off of my sis in her BMW X5.
  12. still working - dare I breathe a sigh of relief yet?
  13. Mine did change, my car is 58reg and the 140 isnt listed for this year its only 140 09 plate onwards, so I had to list the upgrade, remember the 140 will only recognise the engine change and you would still need to let them now any other changes like alloys and appearance changes that would make the car more desirable, I had to list everything seperately. mine went up by about £50 a year I pay £33 a month thats with Max added as a named driver who has had accident and penalty points in the last 3 years grrr.
  14. When you say get one, do you mean everything ie car with the mountune kit? or do you just want the kit? do you already have the zs? go direct to Mountune, speak to Dave, email is david.moore@mountune.com he will look after you and book you in, ive had the latest file put on my car now and touch wood its driving spot on like it should be with no more power loss problems. If you want to order the whole package inc car then you can still speak to dave who will let you know a list of Ford dearlerships in Essex that he supplied the mountune kit too. It will affect you insurance regardless of what anyone says, the kit will cost you £1,299 without fitting thats without any wheels and appearance packs.
  15. yeah I suppose because if its hot magenta or red it would look crappy lol, but I bet its another white one lol.
  16. I dont see why not, although I would give it another week just to be on the safe side, I promised Dave an email in a weeks time to let him know how the car is going, but lets face it any problems and I be on his case straight away - and he knows that lol. Car drove good as gold tonight, can so feel the difference, its no longer chugging so to speak. I am still anxious but thats because ive had 6 months of daily power loss.
  17. Yes very relieved 1st upgrade was carried out April 7th, today is Oct 7th, its taken 6 months to get this sorted. I just want to be able to enjoy my car again. I am always up for a FOC meet up if its not too far from me lol
  18. Had it done this morning, was there for an hour, but I like a chat :D :D new wheels have a double coating of yellow and can tell straight away that there is a much thicker yellow rim now on them, brand spanking new alloys (Max had curbed the old ones too) looks great again. Car feels fine, ive done 4 warm start ups so far and fingers crossed, the car feels less lumpy too, time will tell but I am positive that this is it now.
  19. Sorry but you cant - definatly not - especially as you are in Essex. :P :P
  20. kw coilovers - if I knew what they actually did then maybe id get some but I dont :P and yeah going back to Mountune tomorrow for the new file to be put on the car and my lovely wheels back - ive missed my wheels!!!
  21. to get my wheels and have my engine made better - whoop whoop
  22. I get "did you put the yellow stripes/mirrors on the car" or "is your car a new fiesta" I must admit when I go to the petrol station at night and the lights are making my car illuminate and glow I get a little lump in my throat, I love standing in the queue watching people look at my car hee hee.
  23. as already mentioned, if dial is on windscreen A/C will automatically come on. mine does it, it doest bug me a bit, I now have my dial turned to feet and face now to prevent it automatically swithcing on and me not realising it.
  24. unfortunately I dont think thats the case, someone else on here has had their car only a few weeks has experienced power loss twice, he sent me a message. Also I go on other forums and there are people whom are having the same problem, these people didnt have theirs done at Mountune head office but through Ford dealerships. Also when a reporter has the mountune demo car, they get in it, they drive it, they thrash it, they spin it, they park it up, get out and hand back the keys and write their report, they dont however, then start it up within the hour and drive it again - this is when the power loss will happen, never from a cold start. Mountune stated their car wasnt having problems, yet within 24 hours of me borrowing the car and with my driving pattern ie short multiple runs thorughout the day, the power loss thing happened numerous times. Im starting the think this will never be resolved now.
