  1. mmmm, they last far better than normal bulbs as sidelight's. Set in Landy have been in for over 10 years and many dunks in water. Set in Focus have been in over 6 years. all bulbs on all my cars other than dips are LED's. All on Focus are canbus
  2. The unlock is part of the crash detection system that also does the airbags snd seatbelts. Its activated way before the damage could be bad enough to cut wires

  4. Cant understand why you wouldn’t want it for security. All cars doors auto unlock in an accident so thats not a concern.
  5. They ain't genuine Brembo's then. Brembo's are almost dustless. Squeal is cos you didn't copper grease em properly
  6. Phillips 130% ultimate halogens, blooming good
  7. Yep, another fan of Brembo disks and pads here. No dust and great braking. There is a reason most of the supercars fit Brembo as standard
  8. On my second set of Brembo's and first set of Brembo disks, they were/are a lot thicker than the pads in your photo but also had that chamfer on the ends, its normal. I smother everything in copper grease, all contact points with the calliper, the piston and the backs of the pads, plus the hubs and all faces that make contact wit the wheel. The brembos have never made any noise, brake superbly and produce almost no dust (so much cleaner wheels than the OE pads Squeel is caused by vibration somewhere in the system. This is normally started by the hubs and the disk mount surface not being cleaned fully and not being greased on fitting the disk, so there is a very small play in the disk. Greasing everything prevents this and acts as a damper to any vibration as well as stopping corrosion. Also means in 50K's time the disk will come off again with no effort and you alloy wheels won't salt corrode to the disks
  9. More carjackings = more replacement cars sold. the rate that car sales are dropping they are getting desperate
  10. Mine had a grill there covering the speaker, pop grill out, clip ST pod in the same hole. No need to cut. If you don't have a grill in the centre of the dash I personally wouldn't even think of cutting one
  11. They are dead easy to do yourself with a little care and an 7mm Allen key. look on you tube how to do it and see if you can attempt it yourself
  12. Battery Pos, almost any fuse in passenger footway Ignition Pos, fuse 86 Nighttime lights, easiest would be the submarine lights in the Passenger footwell As you say, plenty of grounds everywhere
  13. Yep, was called Plastidip then. Works well Great on rope ends and tool handles as well. You can get its in spray form now as well
  14. You have a short in the wiring somewhere on the left side, check the connector and wires to it. Check to see if bulbs have blown to a dead short
  15. I havd fitted bi-xenons running leds to mine to replace the reflectors, the rest is simple electronics. The focus uses pwm by default to control lamps brightmes. “Other” puts it back to standard fixed 12v electrics. Unless your running dimp/dips it wont hurt
