New Owner

New owner here folks. Had fords for twenty years and my wife has finally passed her test so we downsized to the BMax.

Already got the itch to buy those little bits and pieces that make it your own. Any recommendations?

We've got the 1.0 Ecoboost 100 manual and i've got to say the engine is marvellous! still trying to get used to how quiet it is!!

welcome along
you don't need to do anything to personalise the car, just use it and enjoy

I tend to agree, keep it standard.


You could get some furry dice to hang up, or put your names at the top of the windscreen

Mine came with a satnav, but if it didn't, I would have hardwired my Tomtom. I actually prefer it to the Ford satnav, though the inbuilt one is neater. I also have a dashcam hardwired. That's the only modifications I have made.

Having had the B Max 2 1/2 years now, I have enjoyed every minute of it and will really miss it when the time comes to replace it. Not sure if the new Fiesta Active will really fit the bill when the time comes as it's not so high and I found myself bumping my head getting in and out of it.

B Max Titanium X 1.0 125 bhp in Magnetic with built in SatNav and rear sensors.

Does the Fiesta active have the payload capacity of the BMax ?

I suspect that the payload is smaller from looking at it, though I don't have the figures to hand. I will look at the detail more thoroughly when the time comes to change.

I'm not looking to do any of the nasty halfords vomit esque mods. just things that make the car easier to live with. i've ordered a bumper scuff guard to stop the dog from scratching the paint when he hops in and out.

i'm trying to source roof rails/bars as well because now we've downsized from a focus the luggage on the holidays may be a struggle.

i see that motobitz and eurocarparts claim to have units that fit and i wondered if anyone has tried them yet?
