      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. Check a cambelt

    I know it's probably too late now, but I wouldn't let that put me off. I'd just make sure I got a sweet enough deal to have the belt replaced anyway.
  2. rs focus

    So would I if I had a brand new car! Particulalry until there is some miles on the clock!
  3. reverse gear

    Common issue as there is no sychro on reverse gear. I find slotting first before reverse helps.
  4. Devastated

    I'm pretty sure Diamondbrite comes with a guarantee where if you stain the trim they come out and try and remove it proffesionally. If it won't come out, they replace the entire seat trim!
  5. [OT] What was your first car?

    I had a 1.1 Fiesta too, a Popular Plus 3dr in Diamond White, which was also totally reliable, and a boon to fix as well. You could take pretty much anything off in a few minutes it seemed! 4 speed box and no PAS, old school!
  6. Diesel vs V power Diesel

    I used to use BP Ultimate Diesel in my Fiesta TDCi Zetec-S. While I never felt an increase in power, I definately gained on fuel economy, by around 2mpg, which to be honest probably wasn't enough to out-weight the extra cost at the pump!
  7. Morello Mk7 Fiesta being dropped...

    Morello is being dropped from most ranges- but not on Fiesta quite yet. It's still available to order. In the ranges it has been deleted from, it hasn't been replaced.
  8. Titanium vs Zetec S

    I can't really see the point in ESP- it just makes a lot of people think they can drive like nut cases and get away with it! A good chassis doesn't need ESP- Fiesta included. Manufacturers just fit it as it makes the NCAP score better. Anyway, Titanium all the way, the suspension is a little more supple which means it rides better and also doesn't tramline under braking and get knocked offline by mid corner bumps as much. There was a quote in Autocar from a Ford engineer recently and he admitted that the standard cars set-up is optimum, but they had to make the ZS stiffer as that is what people expect. So my vote would be Titanium with 16" alloys (the £100 option 7-spoke ones- my Mum has just ordered one!)
  9. Mk7 Compatible Phone

    Your dealer should have a chart showing compatable and non-compatable phones, worth checking before making a purchase! However, I have never experienced problems with Nokia's on Ford Bluetooth kits, and I used a MK7 the other day and my Nokia 5800 paired up and worked fine.
