  1. Don't know how I forgot this but I didn't like the wind blowing down the fence panel the other night, right onto the back of the car. Small bit of the paint on the spoiler has been chipped .

    I guess the problem might be if the car is LED from the start then there won't be anything that is user changeable. At least with our cars being older bulbs we've got the option to change things just as long as the plug and play bulbs are decent and have the relevant resistors etc. to stop any error codes or fast flashing.

    The Mk3.5 ST have them but I don't think they've been available for that long (few months maybe). If the mirrors are the same then it might be available in the future. The Mk4 is listed on the Autobeam site but nothing for sequential indicators yet. It's a shame that the switch is only accessible from the inside as the mirror is a faff to get of/on without snapping a clip. I don't see the appeal in the smoked versions so If I get a set then it would only be the clear kind. Yup, I thought the same. Compared to the standard LED set that Autobeam sell (£8) it's a hefty premium for the sequential indicators. Very nice!! Does the Mk4 have a electronic LSD or mechanical? They look good but I'm not in a rush to buy anything and as they are new to the market I would rather wait and see if they are reliable. Ah!

    I do like the look of the sequential mirror indicators for the Fiesta ST that Autobeam are now selling. @TimST2 what are your thoughts? https://autobeam.co.uk/collections/led-sequential-static-indicator-unit/products/fiesta-indicator
  5. @welshysss re-uploading now. Will post the link when done. **Edit** Done: https://files.fm/u/cg2kbca9
  6. I would have normally applied the foam to the car dry but the sides were quite mucky that I blasted the majority off first. I've got an Autobrite snow foam and Nilfisk jet wash and they have done me well over the last few years.
  7. I thought I would chip in and say that I picked up the Autoglym Polar wash set last year though have only used it once to date. The car was very heavily soiled with the outside being sandy brown rather than Spirit Blue. I went over the car with the jet wash a few minutes each side even before using the snow foam. Foam was ok though didn't cling to the car very long (as far as I can remember). Wash was similar to the foam, slightly less foamy but quite good at cleaning the remaining dirt. I also used a warm bucket of water and a little leftover car shampoo to agitate things before rinsing off. I then mixed things up and ended up drying the car with the drying towel before I remembered I had to wet the car down before using the Polar seal. Jet washed down and then added the small amount of seal fluid and jet washed again. Towel dried and then lost light before finishing off. The next day things looked quite good with a little bit of morning dew beading on the car. I will try and get some photos of the next clean I do and upload them. Cost of the polar wash was ok. If you buy from Amazon then check CamelCamelCamel out first to see what the prices have been like and then set yourself a price alert if you are in no hurry to buy.
  8. When you get a signal to get the text . The other option for @jace1969 could use if no signal would be Wi-Fi calling if it's an option on the phone and through Vodafone.
  9. O2 have an option that sends you a text when you've missed a call (no signal or off etc.).

    Is it just the angle of the photo or is the top of the alloy (2 o'clock position) look slightly buckled? I've still got a slow leak on my rear passenger alloy from March. Local tyre place sorted it in March but seems to be back. Possible corrosion on the valve I've been told. @Lenny you're DIY skills know no limits, from around the house, to the small outdoor houses and no lolly pop homes .
  11. @Turvey how come you had to remove the aerial? I have only used a machine wash once, in a work Fiesta Van, and wouldn't have thought about the aerial at all. As for the accident wash, if the place had CCTV then you could always request a copy for a laugh later on
  12. Oops. I swear that I selected the right one. I think it's time for a name change @TomsFocus… perhaps @TomsExFocus
  13. @tomfocus schooling @dtulip8 in the ways of criminality .
  14. Tried pulling the fuse for the radio? Might be worth checking the manual on the Ford site and finding the right fuse (would be within the glove box). Not sure if this link will work or not (based on 2017 year from your details): http://www.fordservicecontent.com/Ford_Content/vdirsnet/OwnerManual/Home/Content?bookCode=O36401&countryCode=USA&languageCode=EN&marketCode=US&viewTech=IE&chapterTitleSelected=G1866789&subTitleSelected=G1893598&topicHRef=G1893599&div=f&variantid=4477&vFilteringEnabled=False&userMarket=GBR
