  1. Yeah, it's been a while. Still keeping the Foc.

  2. Allright, thanks again. :)
  3. My fellow mates, do these figures apply for the European models, am I correct?
  4. Thank you Clive and Phil..
  5. I'm gonna have the wheels checked and aligned this weekend. Does anyone have the original values for all wheels? Mine is a 2008 Focus 1.6 TDCI hatch.
  6. Hi mates, I need to replace my horrible factory fitted tyres - Michelin Pilot Primacy. Upon my research, I'm considering to buy Pirelli P7 Cinturato. What would you say? Actually I'm looking for a set of tyres with a good grip on wet and dry. Silence is another issue too.
  7. Planning to visit UK this summer...

  8. Well, white, moondust silver and the morello cherry color are popular here mostly.
  9. Evening all, Sorry my figures have to be metric. Please do the math.. ;) From the moment I bought the car, I was aware that it won't match the figures on the brochure - but I was really upset when it became real. On the motorway, around 120 km/h, I've never decreased the consumption below 5 lts/100km. And it can be up to 6.5 lts on average in city central. On a complete journey, I've never made up 1000 kms of a single tank - may be 750 kms or so. The air con is always on, for 4 seasons, I think that might have some effect.
  10. Well, we all know that the first two and a half series were distinctive at the rear and in fact, it wouldn't bother many if it had stayed the same. Anyway, where I come from, when someone buys a new car, we cordially wish saying something equal to "May God make you drive safe, without accidents and the gaze of the evil eye". :) In short: Enjoy it.
  11. Good to hear it's over. It took ages in mine to get rid of the horrible odor.
  12. Hello all, I have a MK 2.5 and I encountered this problem. It was the passenger side instead. I took the car to the local dealer and they said some drain pipe or something had been blocked and told me they cleaned it. Then, I took the car to a Sonax service and made the upholstery dried and vacuumed.
  13. Leave of absence ends, back to work on Monday :(

  14. Dedicated work, meticulous architecture. I appreciate what you've done so far to your car - no matter what the tastes are.
  15. Sure it is a delicate procedure. Would you consider having your car checked in a different garage? Maybe you just don't need to fully renew the whole system. But if this is more likely to happen, it would be commendable to leave it on professional hands - unfortunately along with the hefty price.
