      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

    Ford Focus 2.0 Ghia
  1. I'll refine my question! Are parts more expensive for a focus 2.0 than a focus 1.8/1.6? For example the suspension arms/bushes or exhaust Thanks!
  2. Hi, I am going to buy a Focus and am looking at a second hand 1.8, 2.0 or ST170.... I'm wondering about the cost of getting it serviced and buying parts from places like Euro Car Parts etc. I really don't want to be in a position where I have to pay silly Ford prices for parts because nowhere else has any in stock Are the servicing/parts costs of a 1.8 and 2.0 identical ie; do they use the same easy to find and relatively cheap Ford parts? Is it just that the 2.0 has a bigger engine and not upgraded suspension or anything like that? Does the 2.0 Ghia have any more expensice parts or is it all interior gadgets and trim? And I am assuming that the ST170 has upgraded suspension and other parts which means it will be more expensive to maintain am I correct? Thanks GazNewt
