Hi All!

I'm fairly new to the scene driving a '03 136 Diesel Sport around the roads of surrey and along to Basingstoke for the commute. Owned since December'06 bought with 32,000 miles on the clock from someone who obviously used it as a large paperweight!

I'm currently going through a scientific experiment to determine just how good premium diesel is and if the additives you can buy from Halfords actually make any difference. If anyone has already done this let me know the results!

Does anyone live near a Ford dealership?The reason I ask is that I am trying to order a upper and lower intake manifold off of a 2003 Mondeo ST220 with a 3.0L V6.I just need the part numbers for it is all.If someone could help out,it would be fantastic.It would mean alot to the V6 owners in the states.



Thanks in advance,
Dave

Happily enjoying the exclusivity of being the only MPS owner in Dunfermline ( well i've not seen another one so that's good enuff for me!! ) or for that matter Edinburgh.

Got an 06 Titanium Grey one from Colliers in Solihull and had it delivered up here - top blokes.

Just wondering if anyone knows of anywhere in the UK that supplies performance parts for it ??

I know from this site that there are numerous stores in the USA that can ship the stuff i want ( Street Unit ) etc - but looking for somewhere here has been a pain in the backside. I've currently got Dastek looking into it for me as i'd like to strap on a cold air intake before i get it chipped. Anyone able to help ??

Thanks in advance.

Got mine now, loving it!

Not found any UK suppliers yet, but have ordered the Shark Fin from therpmstore. Should be here any day.

Why would you want to order from the UK with the pound->dollar how it is? ;)

One thing I would love to see in the UK is an OBD port chip-tune...

I work for a ford dealer in the states,so if I had a part number I could actually get the manifolds thru Ford.They do not have cataloging for the Mondeo here since they do not sell the car here.

I've just registered with this forum. I've been looking for a UK Mazda forum (on and off) since I bought my TS2 last May. I'm down near Basingstoke (everyone's got to be somewhere). I've got a silver 2.0 TS2 with Activematic transmission, bought new last year (leased through Mazda finance).[/b]
:wavey: I'll keep an eye out for you, mate. I've got a titanium grey hatchback with a sharkfin antenna, plate starts KF04.


I thought I had a unique car then, but now the roads are packed with 6's. Obviously selling well after the What Car? report some months ago.
I expect the member from Basingstoke bought his 6 from the local dealer there Alan Gibson and goes to him for Service. I found a guy in Grazeley who is a Mazda specialist and knows a whole lot more than they do. I have done a few mods and intending to do a few more. Let me know if you want to exchange views.
Great car.

Ah, so that's what did it! I've been noticing more and more 6's on the roads lately and feeling very jealous :drive:

Cheers for the tip on the Mazda specialist. I also bought my 6 from Alan Gibson and I've been thinking about looking around. There's a guy in Chineham who's just started up as an independent VW specialist (wife drives a Polo) who said he'd be happy to service the Mazda but he won't have any diagnostic equipment. This other guy sounds promising, though. Could you PM me his number?

Hi

Just a line to say I will be looking out for you when I get my new Mazda 6 - Tamura in September. I'm just up the road in Wigan.

I have also found an 'unofficial' UK forum for just 6's at http://mazda6.conforums.com/index.cgi not much content yet so needs supporting. :yesnod:

I called 2 dealers today and neither of them would give me the part no.s, i have tried the net as i guess that you have but also came up blank. Will have to registar on a mondy forum and see if i have any joy there. Just a thought but my old man has a 2.5l mondy that was released just prior to the st version, i could ask him if has the part no.s for his if you think they are the same ?

Ok guys need some help. Had a moment of madness a few months ago and I managed to prang the rear bumper. Anyhow its a £500 refit from Mazda which made me think about just fitting a totally new body kit...trouble is where the hell do you get them from in the UK? I'm not shipping one over from the USA! Any help appreciated, I’ve had quite a good look on the internet without success.

Hi Guys, I have a Black MPS and live in Cornwall[/b]

Dunno about body kits, but keep an eye on eBay for replacement bumpers. I managed to pick up a front bumper in titanium grey for a tenner and the guy delivered it himself (from Nottingham) as he happened to be going past where I live a few weeks later anyway. There are a couple of people breaking 6's on there at the moment - front end impacts should leave the rear bumper intact. Just gotta find the right colour.
