Hi all.

The S-Max has gone - hated the powershift box.

Have now moved onto this and put some money back in the bank.

IMAG1175_zpshqjaosed.jpg

 

Sorry the pics are pants.

It was pretty dark by the time I took these.

Has all the standard stuff plus the NX touch DVD nav.

Previous owner has looked after it very well and also fitted a Philips 4 LED DRL kit.

 

On it's first full day of being owned by me it has had:-

LED's fitted to most of the interior apart from the glove box.

Turn bulbs and high beam bulbs fitted with 5000k Philips and osram's.

Diadem's in front indicators and Philips chrome in the rear.

LED reversing bulbs fitted, these are pants and need to be replaced with something with a lot more guts.

Found some CREE ones on ebay that should do the job well.

LED's fitted to number plate also.

On the cleaning front.

Wheels off and given a good going over with Dragon's Breath, inside the arches have had a scrub also.

Rears were completely coked in mud.

Things I have found so far.

Sat nav took about an hour to fix my position on the drive home.
I have been having a play with it today and it isn't showing any satellite's, believe it has suffered with the water ingress in the aerial :( 

I do have a spare pioneer aerial to try so this will be a job for Ron (later on).

Had a software check :-

Main 0843_090128

Reg DI_SWNAV16.4CIP22

Nav N0967VF_6.4C1P22

This is a big result as it has a 2013 disc in. :banana:

Burned myself an update CD, bunged it in and did the update.

P1060162_zpspjlwnni7.jpg

This went well up until the point where it says resetting.

Blank screen for ages then low batt warning, so battery charger fitted and left it to sort itself out.

New battery sat in garage ready to go on, so no pain there.

Went back to the nav when I had finished cleaning. Started the car and all was well.

Bunged the nav disc in it did another update and restarted.

Then I checked for satellite's and none around, found myself in Germany.

I'd have a derv if they weren't so damn harsh on the road user tax that diesel vehicles are lumped with :(

£180 a year over here, which is nice after coming from £265 on the S-Max.

 

Got stuck in today.

Gave it a wash as it was looking a tad sorry for itself.

P1060179_zpsa0srp2hp.jpg

P1060178_zpsdjifkcas.jpg

As you can see, it's in desperate need of some polish and protection.

Distinct lack of any water beading at all.

This was the clay bar after doing the roof.

Not bad at all for it's age, previous owner has taken some care of it.

P1060180_zpsm54zju9t.jpg

3M green pad and some fast cut plus to get started.

P1060182_zpseqm1joor.jpg

P1060186_zpsindjsyjo.jpg

3M yellow pad with Megs ultimate compound got it back up.

Quick coat of SRP as temp measure until I can get round it with  3M Finesse It and some wax.

P1060190_zpsjnye0yji.jpg

P1060188_zpsrwfp1if6.jpg

 

All I have to do now is finish the bonnet, other side and the rear.

Looks and feels a lot better for it though.

Also placed an order on the eBay for some more LED's.

Pair of cree BA15s for the reverse lights.

Couple of panel style COB's to try, see if I can get some more light in the boot.

And some COB 501's for the puddle lights ETC.

 

That's another issue I have found on the car.

Both puddle lights have had water ingress, full off green water.

Terminals are pretty corroded but they are still working.

Need to look into replacing these.

 

Radio pins also ordered, hopefully be here Friday so I can plug my Pioneer Satellite antenna in and see if it fixes the issue with the NX nav.

Managed to find some time to get on with the car.

P1060187_zps4rw9dlaa.jpg

P1060190_zpsjnye0yji.jpg

And now for the reflection shot.

P1060253_zpssaz4tva7.jpg

 

No sign of the LED's as yet.

The current ones I have in the reverse position are so pants it's not worth having them, that said the dark tint doesn't help at all.

 

I would love to get a new set of wheels, liked the ones on the S-Max, these I am not so fond of.

Think I would stick with 18's and just do a tyre swap.

Been outside with the lappy and the ELM327 cable today.

Pulled some codes from the car.

PCM

P1936:00-28 Clutch switch

P1750:95-28 Clutch learn not done

P0380:00-28 Glow plug

ABS

U3001:00-08 Improper shut down

BCMii

B109B:13-68

B113C:15-28

These are me doing the LED's in the number plate lights.

ACM

B119F GPS Antenna - that was me also.

 

Ones of interest to me are both the clutch ones.

Clutch is high on it and there is a definite springy lag on take up of power when changing gear.

Going to do some searching now and try and get some info.

Anyone have any input on these at all?

Nice job on the polishing....I didn't realise you only recently got the car.

 

I know you said 18", but I will have my old set of 19" mk4.5 alloys and tyres for sale in the next few months but could do with a refurb and possibly one tyre replacing. And, the tyres are probably they wrong size for your car, 235/40/19.
