    hello kuga owners

    Anybody know where Kuga's are assembled? After the snow and the resulting bomb crater spec potholes around here I am thinking of getting one.

    Mudflaps/Splashguards

    If anybody is planning to fit mudflaps this is what they look like on a Tango car. It only took about an hour to fit them.

    Paint Peeling inside wheel arch!

    Look on the bright side - there is no danger of it rusting!

    Awesome car but a few small gripes

    It's wrong. I can assure you there is no way to enable a a non existent temperature gauge. I owned a 2.7D XF for one year and my present 3.0D S for six months. Why would Jaguar disable such a useful facility?

    Awesome car but a few small gripes

    There is no indication of coolant temperature which can be very useful. An "Engine Overheating" message is no better than a warning light as it only appears after something has gone seriously wrong. :o

    Neither does the Jaguar XFS!

    Swirl Marks

    I have found Sonus Wunder Drying Towels are the best water absorbers. They are highly recommended by professional detailers.

    Mk 7 Fiesta keys

    Autokeys produced a new remote key in 15 minutes - it cost £125 compared to the dealer's two hour estimate and £165 price tag.

    Mk 7 Fiesta keys

    According to the handbook there are three types of keys, Remote Control with flip blade, Remote Control with fixed blade and a basic key with fixed blade. My 1.25 Zetec, which was dealer stock, came with a Remote Fixed Blade Key and a basic non-remote Key. Are uncut remote flip blade keys only available as an accessory? I understand these new keys have carbon chips, which my dealer tells me only they can programme - for around £180 . However AUTOKEYS advertise a cutting and programming service which includes carbon chip keys. Has anyone had experience of Autokeys?

    Parking Sesnors

    Lifestyle Ford in Horsham charged £329, which is a bit steep as a 4 sensor kits only costs about £60. Colour coding and fitting will add about £150. Have a look at http://www.parkitright.com/fittingservice.html

    Mk 7 Fiesta keys

    Thanks colin, I will wait until a cheaper option comes along. There is blank key and remote fob on eBay for £75 and the dealer wants £84 to cut and programme it. A new cut and programmed key from the dealer will cost £165, so providing my own key and remote fob is not worth the aggro as it would only save around £1.50.

    Extra Paint Protection for Black Panthers

    Don't use wax over Diamondbrite - the makers told me it will destroy the protection. :(

    Extra Paint Protection for Black Panthers

    Do the treatment yourself. You can buy Diamondbrite Products on eBay and a litre of Conserver plus a litre of their Shampoo is on offer from the makers Jewel Ultra for £25.17
  22. I hope I'm not repeating the bleeding obvious, but for those patient souls who are awaiting delivery of their new pride and joy I came across this link to an online Owners Handbook

    Another novice!

    Evening all. I'm taking delivery a 1.25 Zetec 5 door in Tango on Monday. Although a bit long in the tooth I have been seduced by the new Fiesta. It's only my third Ford, the first being a 1947 V8 Pilot, which I bought for £50 in 1957, and the second was an almost new 1978 Cortina 2.0 Ghia Estate. I have also benefitted from Ford's massive investment in Jaguar with a 2001 XKR, a 2008 XF 2.7D Premium Luxury and my current wheels - an XF 3.0D S Portfolio.
