      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Focus st3 or titx?

    I currently have a fiesta st3 but my mileage means a diesel will be more economic - 7.5k miles in 4 months ownership. I'm toying with either the 2l 150ps titx or the st3, extras and toys about equal . My husband says a sports diesel is like an oxymoron lol, it can't happen. I've never so much as even driven a diesel so can't understand . Help Sell me one or the other
  2. Chain cam

    I'm after a fiesta for my son as a cheap first car for him to potter about in, now I'm sure some fiestas came with a chain rather than a rubber cambelt, but I can't remember which ones. Help
  3. Sat Nav V5

    I don't think there's a setting for house number, only postcode.
  4. Calling Cornwallians / long distance drivers

    Many many thanks for the tips so far, they are welcomely appreciated. I'm getting nervous about the trip already and have visions of having to reverse for miles to find a passing point lol What's the correct etiquette for blind corners of country lanes? Is it a polite beep before I take it or just take it slow and steady and just hope for not a speeding motorist coming the other way?
  5. I've got a massive 300+ mile (600+ round trip) 5hr journey planned for this week. I'm after tips for driving extremely long distances / driving in Cornwall, I've heard roads are extremely narrow in places. Are there any wildlife havens such as in the new forest I should know about? I don't think it's still tourist season? Or is it? Any tips welcomely received
  6. Things I Don't Like

    Can guarantee as well if you tuck back in behind them they'll then slow down again to a crawl...
  7. Things I Don't Like

    I don't like the Vauxhall that tried his utter best to kill me this morning........ We're on a 60nsl road, he's pootling along at 35... So I moved to overtake him, there's a tiny HGV I'm the distance about 3/4 of a mile away on the dead straight road... He then puts his foot down once I'm alongside him! I had to floor it to finish the manoeuvre in time and then brake harshly to avoid hitting any traffic now in front! I'm seriously contemplating reporting the !Removed! for dangerous driving! Btw I slowed down to 25 to 'get my own back'
  8. Remapping car insurance

    Sorry but that is utter BS! I am with DL and they covered me on my modded fiesta TX no worries at all

    @Chuw @Admin You might want to remove the vin from that photo...
  10. Strange observation on drivers' habits

    On the school run in rely on being let out, otherwise I'm not going to be going anywhere! I find drivers on the whole extremely courteous to me and my ST. Top tip: always always say thank you otherwise they're unlikely to let you out again...
  11. Things I Do Like

    I do like that my son passed his theory yesterday with flying colours, and I also like ordering two boxes of 200 coffee sachets for my work place as their machines don't offer decaf as a black coffee option.
  12. Any Android App Developers out there?

    My husband developed an app for his workplace off his own back, made them over a million...
  13. Full size spare wheel kit

    How much? My SIL might be interested. Out of curiosity, also how old is the tyre?
  14. St2 to st line 140

    It was a 125 zetec s, other thing I missed apart from acceleration up hill was cruise control, I missed the bucket seats as I generally lolopped into the car without them. I also missed heavily keyless technology. No way would I swap my st3 for a lower car now
