So service time arrived , nothing better to do so sat and waited.

Furrows Ford in Telford , never had any problems with them and they have always helped me out .

Service went fine and had them check the intermittent locking issue from the drivers door , it had 6 codes registered for it , they were stumped and tested the switch etc , they cleared the codes and asked " how many miles do i do per day" .

Well Approx 4 miles per day , to work and back :) , they came back and then asked if i had any starting , or battery faults , which i have had.So they came back and said battery was really low and that , the car is not getting enough charge. Seem reasonable to me as i always put heated seat etc on .lol

Anyway not a problem , they said if it gets worse , go back and they will search for a solution via Ford.

So what else did i do :)

Got a quote for an ST spoiler 465 Fitted , ouch ! sitting on that one
Reverse camera for the TitX buying the parts 520 , plus wiring loom if not there , binned that one haha

New Fiesta actually looks pretty good close up , B-Max , hmmm good ideas but the cable that goes to the rear doors i'm sure if that door is opened and closed alot then there would be problems with the electrics at some stage, cable hanging down just in the good position for someone to grab and pull !

ST 2 , loved the Black roof lining , in a terrible purple colour though , and for 24,999 with no extras on it and i mean no extras there's no way its worth that money.
Little things looked bad , like the missing ambient lighting replaced, with a badly designed alarm sensor stuck to the roof. Seats were very nice though .

My dealer has not sold any ST at all , and only sold 5 Focus this month , and 4 of them were this week , due to placing a ZetecS in the showroom and removing the Titanium.

Talking of the ZetecS , annoyed to see they have now moved the Aux USB and line in , to the armrest where it was on the Late Mk2.5 and added a neat little extra tray in the Armrest.
Annoyed because mine is in the glovebox lol.

day over back home and now it's covered in 3 inches of snow again lol

Sorry for the boring post , but big brother was on :)

That programme is the best cure for insomnia.
To me it's like reviewing 24 hours of CCTV footage just in case someone decides to flash their wanger for a nanosecond.

It's the tv equivalent of having a prostate exam and a double root canal at the same time.
Can proudly say I've never watched one single episode of that programme, celebrity jungle rubbish or any other hasbeen or dumb nobody show that lazy tv programmers seen to love so much.

My local Ford dealers are selling a Spirit Blue ST2 Focus brand new for under £20k.. They also have loads at £22k would that be better value?

Brand new ST2 for under 20.000 does sound good
