  1. Off.... 99% of the time.
  2. Everything on memory sticks a long time ago. DVD'S onto PC. Dont own a CD player or DVD player other than the built in ones on pc or laptop. All hard copies either sold on music magpie or taken to charity shop.
  3. Had ours done under warranty also, both sides, both now with the correct Ford repair parts. Body shop also tried telling dealership we had had a "bump" which had caused them to break.... needless to say, this theory lasted a matter of seconds.
  4. Two things. First, we would not be without a reversing camera and sensors on a car at all now. Fiesta or not, it saves getting out to seen just how far you are away from that low wall, bumper or low fence. Second, mention of the auto parking. The Mrs works at a health centre and only just last week, a patient was saying that their auto park had ground the near side alloys along a particularly high kerb on the street outside. I guess the car didn't known the kerb was there or the height of it. I have been in a car with it, test driven a car with it and it is definitely not for me.
  5. I turn the dial on ours to LO, up the fan speed a little and it is blowing icy cold within seconds. This is the digital unit, if you are talking about a mk8 with manual control, I have no idea. The Mk8 St Line X Aircon and heating is far superior to my mk7.5 sSt line.
  6. I am probably wrong, but i was told that they now have GPF's but no cylinder deactivation.
  7. Ours were sorted out under warranty. Both were broken or damaged, wobbly headlights. Looks like a fix and not a replacement but works fine.
  8. Well, have had a phone call from the dealer this morning regarding changing my Mk7.5. I am at work so the chat was brief and he is going to ring me back possibly later today when a bit more convenient. After deliberating, I have told him not to waste time pricing an St as previously discussed. I going for another St Line X. He briefly suggested they have a grey model, full spec but unfortunately it is only 125hp, so i declined. Would rather have white (every little mark shows up with black, I should have known from the focus) this time and has to be 140hp.
  9. Again, it is all personal preference. Personally as I said in my above post, i think they look awful and that is enough to stop me even opening the door on one.
  10. Great news, all sorted. Hopefully you don't have to waste a days holiday now and be without a car.
  11. On our Mk8, as soon as the clutch is dipped when starting the engine, the steering lock disengages. Sometimes when handbraking / neutral in traffic, it seems like it engages also, again until the clutch is pressed and it releases. You probably know this but hopefully it may help.
  12. In my previous Ford, a Focus ZS, I had the Sony setup which I thought was very good. I have the standard setup in my Mk7.5 St Line, which I think is better than the previous Sony unit. The mrs has a Mk8 St Line X with the standard head unit, which I think is far better than my Mk7.5. A guy at work has a mk7 5 door Titanium "I think", with a B/O setup. I have heard it and am not overall impressed. His words were he wished he hadn't taken the option up as he feels it isn't very good, is hit and miss and has to fiddle around with settings continually. There doesn't seem to be a happy medium for him. I love music in the car and have a few USB sticks now, they are all I use other than the DAB radio. On reflection, we are both glad we didn't take the option of the B/O system as most reviews seem to steer people away, making the option seem a little like a waste of money promising something it doesn't quite offer most of the time.
  13. Mk 7.5 St line 140 (2017) now at 8700 miles. Mk 8 St Line X 140 (2018) now at 4800 miles.
