Update on the Sony sync stereo problem. I had the car in the local dealers, where we purchased it from and have had it serviced with. After the initial diagnosis of a crook stereo module, they were wanting in the region of £498 for the pleasure of replacing it. After a conversation with Ford head office and a verbal conversation with the service manager, they offered a goodwill gesture to go halves for it. So it ended up at £249 for the replacement part.
On a side note though, all main agents are given finances for a thing they call, Customer Loyalty Programme. The dealers decide when, where, who and indeed if to spend these funds. I appealed to the main dealer for a contribution and they stumped up. Even though the BMAX is over 4 years old now, only just, but they didn't have to offer anything. Cheers, Evans Halshaw.
