Hello all!

Had the Cougar a couple of months now and we are getting on well! Had a few questions, came on here, got the answers, subscirbed and all within the hour! Brilliant.

Have very little mechanical knowledge and really hope I can contribute and get help for what I am learning to be a really great car.

Look forward to using the forum.

Cat: 1999 T Reg Blurple 2.5l 24v V6 Ford Cougar
No mods - as of yet! Apart from the usual parrot car kit, fragrant tree, iPhone kit. Working on it! :wink5:

welcome to the forum david(y), you will find plenty of banter on here, and your subs will save you a shed load more than they cost, you may find yourself however spending just a tad on mods, it becomes infectious:rolleyes5:

Fantastic innit :D

I've been on here for just over a year now and it's been great.

I've saved £ thousands in garage bills and probably spent double that on mods that I'd never even have thought of if I'd not found this wonderful forum :p

Thanks again all.

Sanity is over rated and predictable.

As a relatively new owner are there any tricks / secrets / tips hidden on the car I may not yet have discovered, a 3.5mm input jack, a secret storage area, a way to get over 30mpg :) etc?

fraid not, over 30 mpg if you have a very light foot and on motorway, but common mods here include, hids as the lights are ****, exhaust will help fuel efficiency , few lads jj,kully and cmewse big into sound systems, phil robbo is the man to see about visteon style scoops, neil casscougar works for a very decent ford dealership and organises parts and service at a discounted rate, you will soon find your way around the forum,
the big cat is just about getting in and enjoying the drive, ;)

One i was surprised to find :idea: Push the headlight switch in and turn it left = parking lights (y):LOL:

Over 30 mpg = park it :ihih:

Bonnet release = passenger side footwell :incazzato: unless you've "modded it" eh Mark :D
