  1. Late 2015 Red edition 140 with a Bluefin put on after running in (400 miles) now 7500 miles and only twice have I had it go into limp mode and both times it was below 3c and I was making progress before it was warmed up to temp. turned off & back on fault gone, no codes. I don't red line it & thrash it within an inch off it`s life & I certainly do not poodle around, Never had any clutch issues and the difference the Bluefin makes is great, but that's just my opinion, lol
  2. Someone asked the same question on the Fiesta MK7 & MK7.5 Parts, Facebook site and the reply's were all "ST handbrake cable and braided lines" from euro car parts. I think you would only need the ST handbrake cable but as you will have the brake lines off you might as well swop them for the braided ones. Are you still making the fog DRL`s Mark ?
  3. Mmmmmm................. must have got the C1 wrong as I have a 5 year Guarantee card and its registered with Gtechniq, I also have to take it back annually for inspection to maintain the warranty (at No cost)
  4. Bought my Red edition Oct last year and wanted the same as I work nights and it can be weeks before I'm on a day that the weather allows me to wash the car. I went to a professional detailer and had the paintwork treated with a foam wash / Paintwork deep cleansed and if required clayed followed by a single stage machine polish using an ultra fine gloss enhancing polish. Paintwork wiped down using Gtechniq Panel Wipe to ensure coatings form a perfect bond with your car’s paintwork. C1 Crystal lacquer applied to paintwork / Gtechniq G1 ClearVision Smart Glass on all glass & Gtechniq C5 Wheel Armour on the wheels. Not cheap £850 and 3.5 days but does exactly what they said it would and after I wash it even after a month it looks as good as the day I bought it 7 months on and I use a bucket, Microfiber Madness Incredimitt, Microfiber Madness drying towel, along with 2 cap fulls of Gtechniq G-Wash to maintain the 5 year warranty
  5. The lack of power is properly were it has gone into a limp mode because the yellow spanner icon came on, this protects the engine at the first sign of something gone wrong
  6. Have a look here http://www.fiestamk7.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=7&sid=b2c4902bcb755b85c78d90431b8cf5ff&start=10#p7831 might help !!
  7. Bought my Red edition new in October last year, so 6 months old now. The only issue I have had was a lose of all indicators and took it back to dealer and found it was a poor earth on one headlamp, Not had any issues with the fog lights at all and frankly if they did fall out I would be taking it straight back to ford. As a Red edition it must still be in warranty ?
  8. Just google the part number, Ford Fin: 1718804 http://www.trustfirstparts.co.uk/product/Ford_Fiesta_Roof_Bars_-_05-11-2012_To%3A_28-04-2013_-_1718804_F1718804-114
  9. Months !!! took 12 days for mine http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/topic/79599-s-badge-bargain/#comment-581526
  10. I put a bit of Loctite 343 on the end of the bar thread that screws into the "S" and then position where you want the badge on your grill and I found there is enough room to hold the nut through the grill to screw onto the threaded bar by rotating the "S" until tight.
  11. Nope I have not, but I was thinking off, but after reading TOM-B64 comment I think I will pass.

  13. The 1 to 2 years is from Gtechniq data sheet (but expect it to last longer), I also had the C1 Crystal lacquer applied and yep it comes with a 5 year warranty and it is so easy to keep the car clean and shiny now
  14. 1.5 Washes , Got it on Red edition, it lasts for 1 to 2 years. have a look on http://gtechniq.com/products/auto/perfect/exterior/paint/c5-wheel-armour
