Everything posted by Fi.Es.Ta

  1. Back when the WS was launched i joined the Australian ford forums forums like a few other members on that site there was a thread that for the life of me i can not remeber.But basically it was a discussion about air intake i posted a picture highlighting what i wanted to do regarding getting more air to the engine,i did'nt follow through with it due to the car being fairly new and i did'nt want to void my warranty. Well 2yrs on i have had enough and decided to do the modification and void my engine warranty. Well what improvements have i made you are thinking. This picture is of the modification for those familiar with the air intake. I have taken the whole plastic peice of crap that ford moulded over the airbox intake off,i cut it away to let the car breath why ford designed it like that i do not no but obviously they had there reasons.Well my reasons are exactly what i thought it would do. I have no more jitering and juddering in 1st gear at low revs in traffic its as smooth as a well yeah you no. Gear changes are much smoother,increased throttle response and wait for it...........................Increased fuel performance. this is only my first test on a full tank of fuel but this is what it used to show.Quarter of a tank 150klm new reading i gained 34klm,Half a tank previous 300klm new reading 350klm ive still not emptied the tank yet so i cant give maximum gains just yet but i will update and let you no. I no it probally seems far fetched but beleive me removing that crappy bit of plastic has made a massive difference,im due to buy a K+N Filter so you would think this would improve also but we will have to wait and see. PS.Im not asking anybody to perform this modification this is just my findings on my engine,i am mearly putting it out there.But i will say this that peice of plastic is doing nothing good for your engine.

    Dmb Graphics Are Awesome!

    I suppose there is a good side to it though.Probally about 90% of people in the northern hemisphere dont no know what the ford FPV badge resembles ;)

    Dmb Graphics Are Awesome!

    Purlease dont do that.Thats like putting a ferrari badge on a 74 mini clubman. The ford FPV is used for a reason and the fiesta is certainly not that.

    Ipod Aux Mk7

    I only have Aux connection on my mk7 and always use my iphone to play music which is fine but when someone rings me the music fades out and the phone starts to ring through car speakers so i use it as hands free basically.But since dissconecting my battery to install sub and amp my phone no longer rings through the speakers it just plays music. Any ideas will be appreciated.

    Rear Speakers And Installing Sub

    Wow finally im getting somewhere with a ford dealer and who are willing to listen to me. The charge was $75.00 for diagnostic work and they want me to print out the screenshot you posted nath so they no exactly what menu they need to look at.
  11. Ive decided to add a sub an amp to my mk7.But from searches it is not mentioned what colour the rear speker wires are. i have the base model mk7 with only 4 speakers and have from searching the forum,think i have found the rear speaker block.I located this in the B pillar at the bottom next to the seatbelt it was wrapped up in some thin padded foam glued there doing nothing.I have attached pictures so those that have done the install no exactly if it is for the rear speaker passenger side. Cheers.

    Rear Speakers And Installing Sub

    Just regarding doing this install on my car. After taking my stereo out useing titaniumsteves removal guide which is a pain in the bum and is not easy to say the least,after getting the circuit tester on my wires i found my remote wire and it is not blue and is nowhere near as thick as his,mine is blue and purple and the same thickness as the speaker wires but is in exactly the same place as steves blue wire and every other wire is exactly the same other than this remote wire.I wouldnt have a clue why this is but my stereo is the basic model with no bluetooth or any other futuristic rocket propelled gadgets.Thought i would mention this just incase some of you do this mod and find out there is no blue wire there but a different colour. So the install is done and now its a matter of ford to activate my speakers or some kind person with the hardware and software to do it.(Dont fancy flying to Aus do you nath for a day ;) )

    Fly Eyes

    I'll add my two pennies worth here regarding fly eyes.They are purely cosmetic and do not protect your lights.I had it fitted on my fez when i first bought it in 2010 was the first mod i did and it did look good especially with me having a dark blue car.I had the stuff on for atleast a year and it never come unstuck,but it did eventually fade,when i say fade i mean the black actually comes off as its printed or sprayed onto white (why they did this is beyond me) and they look really tatty and poor.This was the kick in the knackers for me.When i removed the stuff off my headlights it left cracks tiny ones everywhere that are noticible.the reason i think this happened was because one the sun has been shining on them for long periods of time it doesnt let the polycarbonate expand and contract like it naturally should do when there is nothing applied to them.So be warned even though it looks good cosmetically it can damage your headlights.

    Car Is Getting On My Nerves

    This is my opinion i no others would disagree.But i would get some WD40 and squirt it on certain moving areas of the car where your springs seat on the rear beam and just slowly work over your car eradicating one thing at a time untill you come across the area thats creaking and this way you pretty much narrow it down to that one area ;)
