  1. I'm looking to fit a pair of screens to the back of my headrests for the kids to watch but want to know what peoples opinions are on the best ones to go for? I've got a Pioneer DVD headunit as a source device so I'm not looking for any self-contained units, just the screens for connecting back to my HU. Ideal world I'd find something that looked OE but as it was never a factory option I'm putting that aside as one of those I can only but hope items, but something which looks sleek and gives more than its fair share in performance [HD would be amazing] would be great. Fairly flexible budget and very open to suggestions. TIA
  2. Your mudflaps, can you recall where you got them from?
  3. I know I'm churning up a thread here but is there a PDF guide for all of this as good ol' Photobucket has taken all the pictures away from the first few posts making things a little hard to visualise
  4. I'm curious to know why adding a tow-bar reduces your insurance. Parking sensors I get but a coupling on the back I can't.
  5. After a little bit of measuring and making things, here's the fruits of my labour. Why buy it when you can make it...
  6. I need red bulbs/LEDs in any case as I've got clear lenses on the back Thats the sort of thing I'm after, and indeed £12 for both is far better value than £11 per halogen. I'll those ones on order now
  7. Alex that is exactly what I was after, Google for once was not quite the winner
  8. Following a long search online for the image I'm after, hopefully one of you lot might have the answer. I've got a vinyl cutter and I want to make a couple of the S badges to go inside the car (instead of buying them I might as well make them as I have the resources) but I can't for the life of me find a decent resolution image of the 'S' from Zetec-S to use. Its easy enough to find photos of the S and I can find the RS logo etc but not this. Anyone got this logo on file which they could send over to me?
  9. After having a second brake bulb go on my ZS in the last two months I'm not really game for paying £11 for a damn bulb each time it goes (due to the red tint on them) and as such I want to go over to LEDs instead. Has anyone got any experience with the LED brake bulbs from eBay and have any particular ones to recommend - they need to have the offset pins on them so any 380 type bulbs are useless. The ones I've been looking at all have the SMD LEDs on them as opposed to those which are traditional LEDs, but knowing which ones are actually half decent is hard to tell from a listing. I've got some shortlisted which are coming in at around £9 a pair and emit around 450-480lm each (on paper) and on the other end of the scale I've found the Cree bulbs at around £22 which are around 1000lm. Has anyone else gone down the LED avenue at all?
  10. I'll have to have a look at the Rallyflapz ones to see where they come in on price. Not only do they keep the sides clean, I think they help to finish off the look of the car. Edit: scratch that idea, they're the flat flaps - hate those ones. I'd rather have the moulded mug flaps like those Ford supply for the other models
  11. I don't suppose you've got a more recent link for the boot handle camera have you?
  12. This was my second guess as to where it went, I'll have another look again in a bit
  13. After searching high and low for information on this I'm resorting to starting a new topic. I've got an EGR blanking plate ready to fit in my 2.0 engine but I can't quite figure out whereabouts it goes. I've followed the pipe down to the inlet on the front of the block but after looking at the end of the pip its evident that it cannot fit in this location (oh how easy life would be if it did). I've found a guide on here which related to either the 1.6 or 1.8 TDCi lumps but would this guide also be the same for the 2.0 engine? If it doesn't, can any of the 2.0 guys who have fitted a plate on theirs give some indication of where it does go please.
  14. Ah my bad, from the picture on the Amazon listing I thought it was e-torx
  15. what sort of extra economy was you seeing out of interest?
