  1. It may have been cheap but in the end it will be a very expensive car. You would be better off running it into the ground and buying something decent.
  2. Thanks Ahmad. I'll know where to look if it happens to me.
  3. The Mk 7.5 ended in 2017 and the Mk 8 started.
  4. Interesting; thanks for letting us know.
  5. I'm only getting 40 mpg at the moment but all short journeys under lockdown doesn't help.
  6. Mines a 17 plate 1 litre Ecoboost. It's the quietest car I've ever had. Wouldn't be the first time I've gone to get out of the car without switching off.
  7. That made me think so I had to go out and have a look. 😄 Mines 2017 grey and painted.
  8. I bought a pair a couple of years ago and they broke. Seems to be a common problem.
  9. I would never skimp on servicing and always have it done by a main Ford dealer. Had very few problems.

    Derbyshire Police HQ are just outside Ripley. Notts is at Sherwood Lodge Arnold. There isn't a traffic HQ any longer as the Notts police now share facilities with the Fire Brigade.

They are mostly fed up to the back teeth with not being able to put a foot wrong, nor a word wrong and not being able to defend themselves without a load of idiots shoving smart phone cameras in their faces.

    Not one recovered. The police told me that they were being stolen to order as they were all 17 plate Titanium models.

    Car thefts

    I wasn't surprised either Roger. Six cars have been stolen around here since mine went and they were all Fiestas.
  14. As a matter of interest I tried to drive the car with the disklock in place this morning just to see if it could be done. Bearing in mind I leave the wheels on full lock the first thing was to straighten the wheels. Big mistake. I thought I wasn't going to be able to remove the device for a while. Even after unlocking it it had got to a very awkward position with the bar against the windscreen. Got it off eventually but I won't be trying that again in a hurry. I've come to the conclusion that it's impossible to drive with the device in place.
