  1. Fair enough.. close it... Next time I won't bother.
  2. What part of "The information I have given thus far is as much as I've been given permission to" are you not understanding here?
  3. <_< This doesn't apply to you anyhow, yours will be rectified before delivery
  4. It's nothing serious, and only takes 5mins to resolve. Said information what passed to me from a friend that works at Fords, it was released on to the Oasis System on the 11th Nov, for Dealers to contact their customers. And only applies to MK7 1.6 owners The information I have given thus far is as much as I've been given permission to. I was also advised to give the postal service a chance before I could divulge any more info. Alternatively you could contact your dealer and ask them. I'm glad it was greatly appreciated.
  5. I can't divulge too much information at the moment but.. If you own a Fiesta with a 1.6 Sigma engine that was built in Cologne between 4/8/2008 and 29/8/2009, and Valencia between 19/9/2008 28/8/2009 (I think that pretty much counts us all at the moment). Please expect to receive a letter from your dealer very soon. Sorry it's extremely vague, but there's nothing to worry about.. so don't panic. And before someone suggests it I'm not trolling. **EDITED: to enhance clarity.

    Take all the stickers off IMHO.. And the front aero splitter can be bought from Pumaspeed for £79.95. ^_^

    Actually it's Variable Cam Timing And I wouldn't worry about the PFI bit, you have the right engine ;)

    mrk7 zetec s tuned to a fiesta mountune??

    I've had it installed for about a month now.. and the only downside is that my MPG has gone down.. but I think that's more to do with my right foot. There were a lot of issues initially, as you may find if your do a search on here. But since the Firmware was corrected everything has been fine. I didn't have this issue as I made sure the update was release before getting mine done. It's a lot more fun to drive, loving the noise it makes and the acceleration now is epic. £1655 inc VAT to be fitted and for the money it's not a bad upgrade. BTW you don't have to have the styling if you don't want, that is an extra £150 and the wheels are an extra £650..

    Retro-fitting Ford CD Player

    Hmm the only way I've known for a Ford loom to be upgraded to connect to an aftermarket stereo is to buy the adapter that you linked to. Are you sure that they haven't just installed one of those looms and tucked the connectors down the back? I've not seen one that goes the other way tbh

    Rev Limiter or not ??

    When I took a Zetec-S out on a test drive, I asked the salesman what it limits at, and if I was allowed to try it.. he obliged *fool* ;) In 2nd it went to about 6500/6700rpm and then stayed there, it didn't bounce or anything. I then changed to third and it kept going. I've not done it in mine, the most mine has seen is 6000rpm but the torque lags at 5500rpm (as per rolling road).. which is the best place to change. Since having the Mountune Kit the torque level should be higher, and the limiter too, so will be going back to see the difference.

    The hold-up on my Fiesta order...

    Ahh right.. sorry didn't see that in your Sig.. The titaniums and 5 doors are talking longer due to popular demand and that they don't have enough to supply, respectively. Regular orders like Zetec's/S/etc/3-doors are going through no problem, but special orders are taking their time I'm afraid. They basically can't keep up with the demand. I know it doesn't help your situation but at least you now know a little more about what's happening. If you really want to know what's going on if you send me your order number and dealer code I can get my mate who's in direct contact with them out there and find out what the actual reasons are.

    The hold-up on my Fiesta order...

    Out of interest? had you ordered a 3 or 5 door? and was it a Titanium or Zetec-S?

    Opening up the festa

    If you are going to gun it, take the car to 5500rpm before changing gear, I have had mine on a rolling road at the torque band dipped at 5500. The VCT will kick in at roughly 3500rpm in every gear. BTW mine mine gave an output of 126BHP, stock. Apparantly due to it having an adaptive ECU (basically it responds to the way you drive) and that I've always had Super Unleaded in it.
