roll keeping interior clean.

one word about this........ #ucked !!!!!
black EVERYTHING on the inside of the fiesta is impossible to keep clean.
one thing that helps alot which everyone knows about already is to keep your windows closed. but god damn it, hardest car to keep looking nice.
Another thing i dont like is that everytime someone is in the front passenger seat, they unhook their seat belt and it slams on the plastic trim on the door etc... gona end up scratching soooooo bad in a year or so. thinking of getting some kick ass black momo seatbelt pads as this should help the plastic buckle on the seat belt hitting all the panels as yet another careless spazo gets outa my car.


Spinning first .... Chirping second ... and NEAAAAARLY chirping third. Fiesta is the word. Its more than just a party on wheels.

Re: keeping interior clean.

I know what you mean about the seat belt. Mine already has a nice amount of scratch damage to it.

The most annoying thing I found was scuff marks at the bottom of doors and on the passenger side of the centre console.

Re: keeping interior clean.

same in the focus its all black / blue in my case inside...

gets extremely dusty in there too becuase the fresh/recirc vent is electronic as soon as you turn the engine off it switches to fresh, and therefore lets a lot of dust in !!!

dont know if the fiesta is the same or not ?

and on the note of keeping the interior clean. wtf do you remove bubblegum from a floor mat, its not in my boot all nice and dry :(

Re: keeping interior clean.

ummm well i was always told that to remove bubble gum u put whatever its stuck on in the freezer.. make it really brittle.
in your case if its already on there and has been for a while, try heating it so that it becomes soft???? maybe with a hairdryer? just give it all a go.
u can probly get some meguiars stuff that will magicaly remove it but itd be cheaper getting a leather retrim from the Ferrari factory.


HOW MUCH TO GET FRONT GUARD RESPRAYED.????!!!!!!!!??????

Re: keeping interior clean.

I just bought a Fiesta Zetec a week ago and it is already dirty on the inside. And as it is black on the outside, straight after a wash it is dirty again. Oh well...but I love it all the same.
