    Should I go for 1.0 EB?

    I have a 2015 Fiesta Ecoboost (100) which I have put on 43500 miles in that time and the engine has been fine and I do 140 mile trips 4of of the 7 days. I would recommend it over the naturally aspirated 1.1(for the mk8) or the na 1.0 80hp and the 1.25 (mk7.5) because it is soooo much easier to get up to speed and stay at speed especially if you are doing regular motorway journeys.

    HID headlights

    Hi does anyone have any experience using either Autobeams H7 HID dipped beam bulb or CEUKS HID bulb. Also has anyone tried changing the dipped beam bulbs to HID in the New Fiesta MK8 as it uses a different bulb holder to the MK7. Thanks

    HID headlights

    Ok Thanks guys for the guidance
  4. Hi I am wandering if I should remap my Fiesta 1.0 100ps . I have seen that bluefin superchips will remap to about 140hp. As Ford already sell a 140 hp version I would think that the engine will be able to take it. Also if I was to get it remapped would it be an idea to upgrade the cooling? Thanks
  5. Great Thank you that is reassuring
  6. Ok thanks for the points my main concern was whether the engine will be able to take the increase in hp so I will look into the differences of the engines. as for it not being as quick as a real 140ps I don't mind even an extra 20hp will make the car feel a bit different.

    Autofold Mirror Issue

    Hi are you sure that your car comes with power folding mirrors. The Zetec and Zetec S didn’t come with them unless it was an option. One way to find out if it has is to see if your car has parking sensors as they come as part of a pack.

    Reversing camara

    Ok thank you both for your advice I would like to keep it looking like it is “factory fitted” so I’ll check the wiring and hope it is there and then take it from there

    Cruise control

    Hi I would like to retrofit Cruise control to my car as I do a lot of motorway driving. Would it be possible to use the cruise control buttons from a pre facelifted fiesta into a facelifted 2015 version.

    Cruise control

    Just to conclude I removed the airbag and the old steering wheel controls and put the new cruise control one in and then coded it with forescan and it works even though it has a black wire.

    LED lights for MOT

    Hi My car has its first MOT next week and was wandering if I would need to take out my led light I put in from autobeam I have installed; Headlight dipped beam - I know this will have to come out Led indicators Led reverse lights Led brake lights Led numberplate lights Thanks
  14. Ok thanks I will try it anyway. I would have thought that they wouldn’t have had any wires there is the car didn’t come with the function because it would be a waste of money
  15. Hi I have wanted to retrofit cruise control onto my fiesta mk7.5 I have looked at my wire loom and it looks different to one other people have refitted there are the same amount of wires but instead of the left wire being white it is black. Would this still be possible Thanks

    Cruise control

    My wire loom looks a bit different there are the same amount of wires but the white wire is black on my car. Would you know if it would still be possible?
  17. Hi how would you check if you can retrofit cruise control to your car. I know what I need to look for I just don’t know where the wire loom is located a step by step explanation would help Thanks

    Spray point solution?

    Hi I have painted my mirror stems. I’m no professional but it turned out ok I think. I definitely looks better than the fading plastic though. Getting behind the mirror is going to be your biggest issue as it is quite tight. Also if your mirrors fold in then you will have to paint the bit of the base that becomes on show (I didn’t).

    Cruise control

    You can use forescan to enable it. I’ve used it before for the sat nav and have seen the option for it
