Hey all,

Have had a Focus C-Max for the last 5 years until some moron decided he'd take a wet corner way too fast and ended up in a combined 80mph head on with him.....

Got the payout for the car this week so been looking about and fell in love with a 2010 Focus Zetec S 1.6TDCi in Black, FSH, 17,800miles and they are gonna fit a towbar FOC, although with the rear diffuser it's gonna be interesting to see how they manage that, but so far I'm a happy bunny, hopefully get to pick it up Tuesday :)

Expect a tirade of stupid questions from me lol

Welcome to FOC, there are some awesome examples of Focus Zetec S' on here (mine isn't to shabby either!) so get looking around, and get a topic started with your motor pal :)
Peejay1977
Thanks all :)

Do people start seperate threads for their cars then? Mine's standard (I think) and I don't plan on any upgrades so not sure it would be a very interesting thread lol

Welcome to the forum.
I joined with no intention of modifying either.
It's amazing what happens.
Peejay1977
Indeed, engine wise theres no point in me modifying but I wouldn't mind the ST alloys......it just so happens my Dad has one so considering he's nearly 65 I wonder if I can take them without him noticing......haha
Stoney871
If you sneak them one at a time possibly ;)
Peejay1977
Haha that might just work!

Welcome yet another Zetec S owner ha. I came here to admire others work and cars, now i find myself in full swing and admire touching my Zetec S up.

Will keep eye out for pictures.
Peejay1977
I'll try and make the pics fairly arty but its a totally standard car so I'm sure it'll be a bit same old same old lol
Peejay1977
Picked her up today, well chuffed especially with the towbar :)

For some reason the satnav won't activate, the card has data on it but it won't activate, any ideas?

.Ryan
Nice motor pal!
AdamFRP

Millsy1
welcome dude.

nice looking motor. i wasnt going to do anything to mine. but i keep looking on ebay and its becoming a bad idea...u always want to click buy! haha
Peejay1977
Thanks all, loving it so far, although I need to get it booked in for the satnav, think it's the SD card thats knackered, I can read it on my PC but one minute it thinks its a 4Gb card, the next an 8Gb.

Stoney871
Sure sounds like a corrupted card to me.
Ford will charge big money for a replacement.
Search eBay for a replacement one- far cheaper.
Peejay1977
If they think they are selling me a car with a non working satnav they can think again lol

Hi. re the sat nav. Have you tryed, just removeing the card and clean the contacts?
" just rub them on your shirt"

this worked for me in a Volvo dvd " sat nav"
and my phone memery card.
I hope this helps.
Lenny
Car looks good mate,
a detachable tow bar may have suited the apperance of the car a little better but each to their own taste,
have you any modifications planned?

Hi mate, yeah it's not that it can't read the card sadly, the data is all there but I think the card is duff sadly. But, they can fix it, I ain't paying :)

They wanted me to chip in for the towbar if I wanted a detachable so I'm happy to live with it.

Nah, no mods planned, can't really think of anything I'd want to do to it if I'm honest......although I may regret saying that lol

Thanks hun! :)

Oooh you're in the IOM, I keep meaning to come over for the TT!
Preee
I'm sure if you stick around on the forum , the "no Mods planned" will soon change lol
Stoney871
The Forum has a way of sneaking good ideas into your head.
Peejay1977
Got the satnav fixed, wrong SD card :D

Need to test the towbar soon to make sure everythings ok, don't fancy towing my bike trailer and then realising it isn't right :)

Yep, Sunny Isle of Man (today anyway). TT is a must do if you're into bikes. Best time of year over here, the atmosphere is crazy.
Thousands and thousand of bikes descend it's fantastic! Do it!
Peejay1977
As you can probably tell from my pic I am a bike nut lol I will defo do it, just need to get my arse in gear and book it lol
