  1. Good evening all, I am looking for a reliable vendor of H15 white LED Headlight bulbs that support the DRL function on the mk 7.5's. I have already used AutoBeam and have had nothing but issues with them so I'm looking elsewhere? Hopefully someone has some reliable recommendations that work? Thanks in advance!

    MK8 ST-Line mods

    They will all be possible however the price will be seriously high - especially as it’s a new car so things like the 8” screen won’t be available from breaker cars as not many will have crashed. auto-climate control if it’s like the MK7 is near impossible if you have the manual climate control due to the loom and sensor differences. Unless you can’t stand the car without those features, I’d recommend waiting a bit. Don’t be surprised if it costs you more than it would have at build (parts+labour) as it won’t be cheap for a long time!

    Mk8 ST and View of the 3 pot 1.5 at Geneva 2018

    The pricing is certainly interesting to read, and looking at the extras cost if it’s anything like that over here (given the condition of currrncy it probably will be) then it’s suddenly very expensive for a Fiesta

    Stolen or Fell off?

    https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F222542542255 Found this after a quick eBay search - hope it prevents mine suddenly going missing 😜😜
  6. Would also have helped if you put it on the Fiesta specific forum..... this one is hardly used...

    Buying advice

    Personally, as I was in the same situation as your son, the 1.2 I find ideal. If you look around, the engine is a really reliable one with very few issues and has another oomph when needed. Scour auto trader and look for private, there are deals to be had. Also, they seem to be cheaper up North for some reason so may be worth a trek up for the right Car. Look up MOT history online (free) I’d recommend as that can be a good point for any flags.

    Mk8 ST-Line X 140 early impressions

    As the new Fiesta has an upgraded infotainment system, was wondering if I could pick your brains.. Is it a good system (reliable etc and easy to use while driving?) and is the CarPlay wireless or do you have to plug in on USB? I find charging speeds are always slower on USB. Any advice/opinion would be much appreciated as I am looking to upgrade to the full ST when it releases but don’t want to get my hopes up too much on the interior /tech if it isn’t that good. Thanks

    Stolen or Fell off?

    eBay for replacement. Or a local breakers yard you’d get a good deal for something like that - plus you’d know it was genuine (if that is something that bothers you) Personally don’t know why someone would steal that bit in particular but who knows.

    USB not supported

    Yep same procedure. However, what is simpler to do a reset is just to pull the fuse. Look in the manual. Much easier and works a treat

    Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    To my knowledge, if it’s factory fitted, then they are with most insurers, linked into your registration plate so don’t have anything to declare. It’s only once it’s left the factory that you have to start declaring, so if your dealer added on parking sensors for example before they gave the car to you, it’s still a modification as it wasn’t like that when it left the factory.

    Download?

    I’m on my mobile so can’t see your car/Sync type. If it’s the old fashioned type (fiesta anything before Mk8) it’s normally because it’s failed in downloading the contacts from your phone (if it’s an iPhone). if you aren’t on that car/sync then ignore all that!

    Ford Sync Updates

    Anyone got a change log for 5.11? I’m on 5.9 after upgrading my APIM on a early 2013 facelift Fiesta, only want to update if it actually makes a difference? Thanks in Advance

    Which fiesta?

    That QuickClear screen is a life saver. Makes things so much easier 👍🏻

    Which fiesta?

    Nope - there are 5 door versions :) e.g: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F332522163091
