  1. Yes - many time all you can do is redownload it and try again - pehaps try a different "unzip" program
  2. Fiesta ST reviewed on Top Gear this week (repeated tonight) Chris Harris explains why a Ford Fiesta is better than a Lamborghini. and also featured in the Grand Tour: 10. The Youth Vote Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May compare the VW Polo GTI, Ford Fiesta ST and Toyota Yaris GRMN at the track before attempting to make these cars more appealing to young people.
  3. Shoudn't be to different - its the 3rd one thats major - and MOT as well.
  4. Normally when a country introduces a law that cars must have lights on all the time it only applies to vehicles built after a set time: Designed to make cars more visible to other road users in daylight conditions, they have been required on all new EU cars and small vans since early 2011 to improve road safety. The lights automatically switch on when the engine is running and switch off when the main headlights are turned on so here in the UK if you have a 2010 car ir doesn't need daylight running lights.

    ECO mode

    The only advantage for 3 door and a long object is you can flip the front seat forward and run from the glovebox to the hatch lip, on five door cars you can't flip the passenger seat forward.
  6. You'd need to post the size of both tyres, my spare is 175/65 R14 for 16" wheels
  7. Read this if you want to get really paranoid: https://www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/ford/fiesta-2013/good/ Lots of problems with the auto gearbox - but NO reports af any ecoboost losing the turbo due to rusty pipes.
  8. Just to add a little more detail: Up until now, petrol engines haven’t been required to fit the equivalent Gasoline Particulate Filter (GPF), which means that all of the direct injection petrol cars currently circulating are throwing PM out the back, and we mean a significant amount. You can’t see it because it is very fine, and that is worrying because it is the ultra-fine portion of PM that is associated with the worst health impacts. The World Health Organisation declared some time ago that diesel PM is carcinogenic, and both petrol and diesel PM are associated with all sorts of health impacts, including death. To underline this point, when assessing what the safe level of PM is, the WHO came to a rather sobering conclusion; namely there is no safe lower limit, in other words, any amount of petrol or diesel PM that you breath in has an adverse health impact. For us, that sounds like something you want to avoid. At last, this month European legislation has caught up. As part of the efforts to stop another VW-type scandal, all new models have to undergo extra tests and from September 2018 every new car will be subjected to these tests. PM limits now for the first time apply to direct injection petrol engines which is fantastic news. In announcing the new standards the EU said that GPF would be required to hit the new limits.
  9. Mines a 175/65 R14 so it must depend on the size of the tyres fitted to you car
  10. I have the Mk 8 with the sub - so no space for a spare - but I ordered a space saver when I ordered the car, it sits between the boot floor and the false floor, its tight (which stops it moving) and you lose a lot of boot space.
  11. You don't "need to" but i'm going to have mine serviced at 1 year just for peace of mind.

    Auto lock?

    I also take that to mean keyless can't be "jammed" and prevented from locking when using the button on the door
  13. I'm sticking with a service every year.
  14. If someone wants your car they will break into your house and take the key, jump you as your getting into your car etc, If its a 60k Range Rover I might be worried but for a Fiesta (proper ST excepted) as long as you double lock it alarm and deadlock I'm sure it will be fine
