    Soot in exhaust

    Got mixed up with adblue my bad [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] Burns off to make water vapour basically [emoji23] but all diesels still get soot in exhaust visible soot no so when you rev non should appear but your clean rear of the car will get soot and soot will be on the exhaust Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    All diesels no matter what will get lots and lots of soot lol hence dirty diesels lol Dpf doesn't catch all of the soot (it's for gases mostly which it burns off) * in brackets is wrong

    Mods for Fiesta 7.5 1.0T 80ps

    Guess the normal inductions will fit it like Mountune etc A change of exhaust tips and end box from st is a cheap mod and will make it sound better but it's a 1.0 not a 1.0t t stands for turbo this is a duratec 3cyclinder engine but there isn't any real way of making this engine sportier 2bh Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Worth Upgrading to the New Fiesta?

    I'm sorry to burst the bubble here The mk7.5 is the better car (wait till I get to my point before judging) Mk8 belter looks wise comes to certain taste but that's not where I'm basing this on I'm basing it on engine..... Both Mk7 and mk8 has exact same engine except they added cylinder deactivation which is daft IMHO puts power from engine to one or 2 pistons . Please .... Mk8 is heavier car, ford made the car wider and slightly longer with same engine makes it less bhp/tonne making it less mpg..... I've drove both and here to say Mk7 is better.... Now to the gadgets Mk8 beats it hands down gadgets galore which I'm actually more for, i love gadgets but with modern cars all you really need to do is add your own media screen and you get most of them anyway So here's the conclusion ..... Personal choice For me I drove my fiesta and loved it for years had over 4year of fun in that little car running 170bhp I needed bigger so was liking the fact the new car was bigger I drove one on test drive and work has one alsoso drove it.... Didn't feel the same imho and I don't mean better a felt the Mk7 was better for engine wise well down to weight being lower and mpg where I average 43+ on the mk8 37+ But was impressed with the inside of the car all round the mk8 definitely beats Mk7 for interior lol For me I ended up choosing an estate focus lol as I can buy a second car now for speed so personally Go test drive it and work out if it's the best option out there ... Due to prices a would say there is better out there than the mk8 fiesta 😉

    I had this option and a major and mean major draw back is.... Rust and can't go back It will eventually rust might take a while but it will Also gonna have holes in your car so if you go back to standard that won't work Bonding is easier plus works just as well And can go back easier too

    Focus boot space

    I have the MK3 estate after I had a fiesta and what a boot lol here's is a comparison

    Ford Focus DRL

    I passed my last 2 MOTs with hids fitted but the fiesta has a projector and 1 mot before with LEDs passed no issues they don't all need washers etc fitted that's and older thing which changed to aslong as the beam pattern isn't changed and aslong as it's yellow or white but new mot has zero tolerance so anything other than a halogen bulb or whatever it came from factory it will fail But again the not hasn't changed as my mot mate told me the rules are still the same there just been told to be stricter as they haven't changed as if you look at previous mot rules the wording hasn't changed only diesels changed this year Changing anything from standard on your car should fail mot too as in red tail led light etc as it's a change to manafacturers car it's meant to be a fail but due to the vage-ness they are leanient that's why you don't see that coming up on pages much But back to subject am just looking for best Inbetween light you can get from looks and nice output too but both have trade offs Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Ones I've had before is Osram Intense cool blue am sure they are called probs try these plus give 20% further light too The Osram cool blue or something are road legal and give better light than standard bud but not sure how white compared to these lights a will need to upgrade the 501 bulbs too That looks good buddy a like that on your bike bud Wee update needing to take photos but written part of the guide is done Issues I have faced with in theory On my test bench I have a drl module that dulls down the LEDs white light when you turn on the halogen and easy to add this to the headlights with a spade connector issue I'm having is the LEDs give a very faint flicker but this is on my test bench so currently wired up without drl module I need to add this to the circuit on my car to actually test if it's just my test bench or not or even if you see it when the dripped beams are on so will see this throughout the weekend

    The TTS with a remap to over 400bhp have been clocked just over 3s to 60 which is mental lol but I agree TTS or mps Right my original plan was a r33 gtr but due to US market they shot up a gtst used to sell for 5k odd now 8k plus Gtr version was 9k-10k now over 17k .... But since I was a kid I loved a 300zx and Subaru Imprezas... My mate has a mk1 Ra Subaru so I'm gonna get my 300zx 3.0l V6 twin turbo 300bhp standard 1994 car came with heated seats, cruise control, eatc even back then haha intake, intercooler, new Pipework, sports cat and new ecu about 1.7k worth of work takes it not far off 400bhp and the looks....[emoji7][emoji7][emoji7] If the lights were good enough for a lambo diablo it's lovely enough for me Can get mint ones for 7k My goal (ps this will be the car I keep and mod for a very long time) This is my FB car friends I chat to Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    The only issue with mps is steering I had a guy I spoke to at Scottish car show says they handle like a boat untill you spend decent doe on coil overs new adjustable anti roll bars etc which is like 1k into it The R32 or tt with the V6 with a supercharger on it upgrade is about 3k but sound and speed is worth it enough lol been in one was fkn mental lol Reason I said TT is it's even lighter with that fast engine would make mince meat of most cars out there TTS is your fastest s out of s3 and been known as supercar killers when you spend a bit on them there 0-60 is already mid 4s when you get it remap it usual mods takes it to 508bhp and a mental 0-60 [emoji23] I will have 8k around next year so for my second car I'm going old skool jap well if all goes well lol Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
