    Hello :-) What is your best mpg with your ST Tdci Mine is 56 mpg Jamie
  2. LS RNS sat nav

    Hi :-) The Card (SD CARD) is what contains the Map I have a feeling it is this one :- http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-LATEST-FORD-FX-2017-SAT-NAV-EUROPE-SD-CARD-MAPS-FOCUS-MONDEO-KUGA-SMAX/222537687938?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D43781%26meid%3D743fab1eab4549a4a2ba38fc5a67d417%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D332264818417 Your unit is made by Blaupunkt Hope this helps anyway Jamie
  3. Focus ST worrying engine noise, HELP!

    It should not be that loud. Was that a hot engine or a cold engine. Also, Was the correct oil put in at the last service, Is the engine cover around the oil filler supposed to have a break in it ? How many miles has it done This engine DOES have Variable Valve Timing. I suspect the Variability system has failed or is failing and that you should take it to ford for it to be checked Bearing in mind this is a Volvo 5 pot engine (Volvo B5254T3) Jamie
  4. Very poor mpg

    Hi Replace Air filter. Are your brakes binding if they are thats a big hit on mpg. Are you doing long journeys or short ones. Stick some Millers ecomax in the tank (i use it at every fill) (cleans things) Jamie
  5. Focus Mk 3.5 front speakers.

    It will say ford because it will have a ford part number. but the amp etc inside the unit etc etc is made by sony, Ford are now switching to Bang & Olufson I notice the sound improvement Immiediatly over a ford standard unit. Ford were using Visteon-Sony
  6. Focus Mk 3.5 front speakers.

    Be sure to update your headunit software to version 3.10 (sync 2 update) unless you have sync 3. The sound comes out at the rear much better after the update. Let me know how you get on with the upgraded speakers :-) Jamie
  7. Focus Mk 3.5 front speakers.

    From experiance with living with Ford cars since the 1980's Ford has used a paper mix cone, its nothing new, and tbh theres nothing wrong with paper cones, That is why they offer an upgrade either as an accessory at the dealer or a factory fitted option ie upgraded system for example like mine i chose the Premium Nav option which included 10 Premium Sony Blue Plastic cone speakers, i say plastic but im sure they are not just plastic, Plus, You can fit 1000W speakers in each corner but they will Likely only be fed with 20Watts Each, Due to the power rating of the *amp installed If you want to install a seperate amp then that leads you down the Modified Garden path. And TBH Im impressed by the sound quality from my sound system, Jamie
  8. Possible Mk3 Boot Leak?

    I will be looking in my spare wheel well tomorrow. I will reply if i find water. etc Jamie
  9. Roof boxes, talk to me !

    Hi I dont have a roof box BUT Take a look at the ford accessories site for some inspiration http://www.ford-accessories.co.uk/focus/2014/transportation/roof-transportation?intcmp=other:acc:pdp:prod-list-view::select-product-group That way you can get an understanding of what you can fit to your car, Hope this helps somewhat Jamie

    Is ford doing anything about this ? I know its not there fault cars are being stolen but, Are major car manufacturers jointly talking about the keyless system ? Could the keyless system be phased out because of this ? Jamie
