    sunroof glass

    I’d be surprised if you could get a replacement glass roof by next week. But good luck anyway.

    LED Replacement Bulbs

    It’s just the crispness of the LED flash that I’ve seen in other cars that makes me want to go to the bother. I’ve had the headlamps out to replace the other bulbs and the indicator bulb has a simple twist connector then a push fit into the holder. I reckon I could replace one in about 2 mins, now I know what I’m doing. By the way, the puddle light LEDs that @MJubby used are fab and bright. So much brighter than the standard filament bulbs. They took nearly 2 weeks to arrive though. ‘Dispatched from Manchester’ the listing said. Must have moved Manchester to China methinks.

    LED Replacement Bulbs

    Has anyone replaced their front indicator bulbs with LED bulbs. Apart from my registration plate bulbs and front indicators, all the bulbs are now LED, so I was considering upgrading them too. I saw on an online video however that the internal indicator may flash twice as quick due to the lack of load. Anyone know ?

    A bit late. I’ll keep my fingers crossed 🤞

    @MJubby I have looked at the Ebay listing for your puddle lamps and it shows the Ford logo projected onto the ground when you look at the ‘more details’ section. Do yours do this ? I’m still waiting on mine arriving.

    LED Replacement Bulbs

    Well I fitted my bulbs tonight with the exception of puddle lamps, which haven’t arrived yet. I have to say that they are much brighter than the old ones and the change from dipped to main is now instant. I have taken a couple of pictures of the dipped and main beam on the road. Unfortunately my before pictures are a little blurred but you can see the improvement. I’m not sure there is any distance improvement, but what is illuminated is much clearer and brighter. First pic is dipped before, then main before, then dipped after and main after.

    LED Replacement Bulbs

    Well I have ordered the bulbs as listed by @MJubby and so far the H15 and H7 bulbs have arrived. One thing that I hadn’t considered until I received the bulbs is how the beam is managed. There are no shields or deflectors, so it would appear that all they can do is shine bright. Has anyone had any issues as far as accuracy of beam is concerned ? It’s all very well having very bright lights, but if the beam isn’t focused effectively, then you won’t be able to see any better than with standard candles. I have attached photos of the H15 and H7 bulbs, so you can see what I mean.

    What would you do ?

    Can’t see the Edge ST coming to the UK. The ST Line is as close as we’ll get. I’ve seen a few US reviews on the Edge ST and although I wouldn’t want the fuel bill, I’d love to have one.

    Seat are bringing out an SUV based on the VW Tiguan / Skoda Kodiak shortly. Tarracan or sinething like that. Images I’ve seen look good.

    What would you do ?

    Sonic, you are absolutely right, which is why, although I love my Edge, it’ll be my last. I’ll run it until it’s no longer economical to do so. 21 months so far. The Government are demonising diesel anyway and want you to buy electric, yet they have just slashed the grants available to entice you to go electric, so where does that leave us ?

    Tyres

    I just bought two fronts of the same as my original Scorpion Verde tyres at 17,000 miles. I looked at Black Circles and several others but decided just to get my dealer to fit them at £223.99 each fitted. They were slightly cheaper online but then I’d have to get them fitted locally and I’m not keen on trusting the local garages with my 20” wheels or to deal with the TPMS issues I’ve heard so much about. I’ll see how long it is before I need to replace the other two.

    My heated seat have never come on by themselves. Even in very cold weather last year.
