      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.

  2. 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
  3. 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 😜😜
  4. Would also have helped if you put it on the Fiesta specific forum..... this one is hardly used...
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
  11. 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
  12. Which fiesta?

    That QuickClear screen is a life saver. Makes things so much easier 👍🏻
  13. 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
  14. Which fiesta?

    Personally, for best balance of price and features, I’d go for Zetec anyday. Style/Studio is the very basic model and wouldnt really reccomend it
  15. Windscreen washers

    I had the same issue after the last few days. I always carry a cheap £2 Halfords aerosol of instant de-ice and just spray the nozzles, even though my mix is -16 it still freezes. If you de-ice the nozzle then you’re good to go and spray. Apparently you can retrofit heated nozzles, however the post on this forum has had the images de-activated. After this winter I’m certainly looking to get heated nozzles on mine. But yeah, just clear the nozzles, and as long as your fluid is designed for minus temperatures then it will flow without an issue, it’s just the very end of the nozzles that freeze for some reason
