hi all my son has advised me to join this forum as he belives if i have a problem with my CMAX TITAINIUM 1.8 petrol 10 plate and he can't HELP!!.............YOU LOT CAN
now for the money saving tip!!!!!

YOU DO NOT GET A SPARE WHEEL WITH THIS CAR IT COST AROUND 70 FOR SPACE SAVER FROM FORD NO TYER!!!!!!!!
IF YOU BUY NORMAL WHEEL (TIN 150 + FROM FORD) IT SITS PROUD OF WHEEL WELL ABOUT 3"

I WENT SCRAP YARD GOT A TIN WHEEL OF NEW MONDEO GOOD TYER & JACK FOR 50 .

THEN I WENT B&Q GOT SOME 3" THICK INSULATION SHEETING CUT HOLE IN MIDDLE FOR WHEEL AND AROUN EDGES TO FIT BOOT SHAPE .

PUT CARPET BACK OVER PERFECTLY LEVEL YOU WOULD NEVER KNOW ALL FOR THE MEASLEY TOTAL OF 60

I FEEL THIS IS A CON BY ALL NEW CAR MAKERS WHO ONLY SUPPLY TYER WELD WICH IS RUBBISH AS ONCE USED FOR LITTLE PUNCTURE THE TYER IS KNACKARD SO YOU HAVE TO BUY A NEW 1 AND IF YOU GET BLOW OUT IT WONT WORK AND YOUR STILL STRANDED WHERE YOU GOT A FLAT OH YEAH NOT TO MENTION RECOVERY FEE!!!
HOPE THIS SAVES PEOPLE A LOT OF TIME & MONEY[img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img][img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img][img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]

Hello and welcome.

Careful with the cap locks!

Appreciate the advise but some may be able to haggle the spare wheel foc
