  1. I wouldn't know James although I believe I have read on hear you have to connect via USB cable but I'm sure someone on here should be able to confirm this, maybe latest version supports wi-fi...it would be more convenient.
  2. If you need these features why not order the new car with these features already included, adding and messing around with forscan will surely void the warranty, and I'm sure your other half is worth the additional cost 😉
  3. I noticed on the posted video that the panel behind the Sync unit doesn't match the shiny carbon fibre effect dash trim. My MK8 Stlx does match and it finishes the dash off nicely, be a shame if they have used a cheap bit of plastic instead to save a few pennies. I'm looking at an upgrade in the New Year so reading this thread with interest.
  4. Gotta take switch panel off to access screws holding door card to the door unfortunately, its a right pain 😵
  5. I've had this off twice and it was a pain each time...wish I had that pdf rather than doing it blind...saved for future reference, thanks Ahmad good find 👍
  6. Bob, commute is just over 20 miles each way consisting of a mixture of 40/55mph dual track, 30mph town (early morning so no traffic jams), and country roads. I'm quite lucky that I don't get stuck in traffic although they tend to like digging the roads up around here and installing temporary traffic lights without warning causing traffic chaos. I'm not a heavy footed driver and seem to always got over 50mpg whatever the weather, I use the power from the 140ps ecoboost when its needed, know its available.
  7. Just over 55mpg on last tank full using brim-to-brim method whilst showing 58.7mpg on the car computer...pretty happy with that 👍
  8. Obviously never taken the glove box out of a 2018 MK8. Yes squeeze in the sides but prepare to put some brute force behind it, I've taken mine out and it took a awful lot of effort to release the two bungs...thought the damn thing was going to break. You also have to take the glove box out if you ever need to replace the glove box light bulb...terrible design. One note...once you have the glove box pivoting forward its removed from the hinges by sliding the hinge pegs out.
  9. 22 mile commute each way with a mixture of country, dual carriageway & city traffic..although I go through the city early in the morning so no traffic. I'm not heavy footed but the ecoboost 140 engine got plenty of grunt available when I need it. I've filled up a few days ago & the car reading is settling around 53mpg...a lot of queues atm in/around Worcester because of the flooding...
  10. Still getting over 50mpg on mine (over 18k miles), did a brim-to-brim check a month or so ago and calculated 56mpg (car computer showed 57.8mpg so not too far out). I usually assume a 5-10% over read on the car computer...
  11. Isn't this shown in the owners manual....?
  12. Could be, I think Ford know they have an issue there. I tried a tie-wrap there too but it didn't seem to make any difference, so removed and now only have the one near the double pipe clip, as per your photos.
