      There'll probably also be a little rubber/silicone weather seal around the wire, possibly crimped in with the terminal. Don't forget to slide that back over the new end before you...

      I looked at the brochure from the Ford UK website, and it also mentions that the kerb weight for the estate/wagon 2.0 TDCi is 1,601 kg, with a gross weight of 2,330 kg. So, it's not simply a vehicle...

      Oh no, not Kickerfox's project!? Man, it's looking like I'm going to be an old man by the time he finishes that.

      And if by 'solved', you mean, 'avoided entirely', then I suppose that counts as...

      Most dealers here that dedicate space to keeping an inventory of vehicles on-site, do so virtually exclusively for used cars. Also, like you say, some showroom locations are just that: only for new...

      One difference here in Europe (well, I can only speak with assurance for the UK, but I am confident this applies to most of the rest of the EU) is that new car purchases are mostly made-to-order....

      One thing that stood out to me was the almost complete lack of advertising. No billboards, no posters, no hoardings - absolutely nothing of a commercial promotional nature.

      Cost-cutting isn't the primary motivation behind leaving out spare tyres. Less weight, more interior space, more freedom of design, 50% of owners not knowing how to make use of one anyway...
