    Auto headlight upgrade

    Since I've moved on to better things (VW) and had auto lights and wipers, I can safely say I'll never ever go back 😂😂. Same as I'll never leave my DSG for a manual. Before I had lived with auto lights I thought it was a waste of money. Infact I even specifically refused two fiestas from dealer because they had auto lighfs and wipers. Well, what a mistake i made with those!

    1.6L Zetec S Remap

    The1.0 in the fiesta doesn't actually have that many problems. It was the early 1.0 In the focus that had issues. I killed my ecoboost but that was an extremely poor map. I don't blame the engine.

    you don't have a turbo do you? In which case it's not really worth remapping it..

    You need the auto switch. Sensor behind the mirror, wiring loom and forscan to enable it

    Desperate for your help!

    That's what happens when you fit cheap HIDs. I hope youve got projectors fitted, if not I won't he giving anymore advice after this. When I had my fiesta, cheap 35w hid kits wouldn't work properly. I fitted a fairly decent 55w kit and for whatever reason that just worked. I didn't even have to install a Relay to the battery. In your case, it could be a case of either the ballast being faulty, or, it's not able to draw enough power to keep the bulb lit.

    Is this compression surge?

    More torque/harsher torque delivery = more stress on syncros during gearchanges. @Paramanic has had issues which I'm sure he'll explain to you

    Cleaning / Detailing

    Trim wise I'd use Gtechniq C5 or Infinity wax rubber wax. Tyres I'm currently using KKD's tyre dressing I think Get yourself some samples from kieran

    Mk6 nightmare!

    The mk6 fiesta petrols always have issues with coil packs. I'd replace that and the HT leads. If it's pre 2005 (prefacelift) then add some silicone sealant to the bottom of the washer jets as water gets in between the jets and the bonnet.sounds unlikely because the airbox is in the way but it happens! Then change the plugs, make sure the core plug has been changed correctly with a good quality one. If issues continue then it could indeed be headgasket failure, but the engines in the mk6 are pretty reliable so it's unlikely. If it is, get some powermaxed steel seal headgasket stuff, put it in, and sell up 😂. To be honest I know people who have used it as a permenant fix

    Watch your synchros.. Bluefin maps have a history of destroying them on the ecoboost due to torque delivery

    2004 Fiesta name this part (HELP)

    Just go to your local breakers yard and remove it then you know you're getting the correct part

    New Fiesta ST Line Remap

    Remap wise, don't touch AET motorsport with a bargepole. Go to a Revo dealer or somewhere that does truly custom maps.
