    Forscan

    Forscan can be used to reprogram the cars ECU config (say you added the hardware needed for cruise control, you can tell the car this and cruise control will become available) aswell as displaying other info like a normal ODB reader would. A modified OBD cable is required.

    New car value loss

    What's your opinion on people who say you'd be stupid to buy a car from the dealer because as soon as you drive it the value drops a load? My view on it is, if I want to get the exact specifications I want then a dealer is my best option. I'm not posting this asking for advice, just curious. 🙂

    Torque

    Does anyone know what the torque settings are for the engine oil drain plug and spark plugs for a 2009 1.4 Fiesta Zetec?

    Are these interchangeable?

    As an update to this, I bought one of the exact same module as I couldn't be bothered with messing around if it didn't work.
  5. Some people would say it will ruin what the ST is but I don't think it would. I think an ST that looks the same as a normal one but is electric would be pretty interesting as the acceleration of an car like the Tesla is apparently amazing. What do others think?

    One Touch Windows

    So I did a quick search and can't find anything conclusive, so my driver's side window has one touch as apparently most if not all do (MK7 by the way) but I'm wondering if it's possible to install maybe a module or new switch to make it happen on the passengers side?
  7. I posted before about my stereo display being slightly faulty so I am probably gonna replace it. The model number of the current one I have is 8A6T-18B955-BH, I am just wondering if this would be interchangeable with a 8A6T-18B955-BL as they look visually exactly the same. Also as far as I am aware this would just be a straight swap nothing else needs doing, is this right?

    Intermittent Display

    Hmm ok, I might look into it but it's weird because it's intermittent and only happens once every couple of weeks, might just leave it tbh.

    Full Light Upgrade from CEUK.

    I can vouch for the X-tremeVisions too, they look great, I posted some pictures here.

    Intermittent Display

    Im wondering if anyone else has had this issue, basically my stereo display will intermittently fade in and out, I know it's not broken because you can see if fading in and out sometimes and if you look from below you can see the display. Here is a picture: Here is a picture from below: It'll normally happen every couple of weeks and only last for a day, I'm not too worried, just wondering if anyone else has had the issue.
  11. So your car would be a MK6 then, if so im not sure it would fit as it's probably different.

    Hey don't tell me what I already know, it scares me

    Removing Black Box telematics

    I can understand wanting to remove it and they have all the right to (it's basically a GPS tracker, I wouldn't want it on my car unless I had to) but It depends whether the insurance company wants it back, they'd have to find out.

    I've seen them connected straight to the battery before.
