  1. You can see creases in the boot floor from his pics.
  2. Lol, I imagine it was making a bit of a racket, I've found the battery cover makes enough noise if it's not clipped in properly...
  3. Write off just means beyond economical repair. You can repair them, but if damage is bad enough they will need a certificate to say they are safe again.
  4. I'll be there in the Focus ST. It's hanging at the moment, haven't cleaned it for a couple of months, haha. Be a busy Saturday for me next week. Pitch might be the whole of the grass area in the corner. They got the map wrong last year, something like 20 clubs shown on that tiny strip of track, when in reality on the day you were all spread across the grass towards luffield.
  5. I'd ask them for an amended receipt. Just so Ford can't argue if they ask for proof in future.
  6. You can have it serviced by a non Ford dealer, however everything that needs changing as per the schedule must be changed and any replacement parts or fluids must meet Ford's specification. So the warranty will not be void by having ATS carry out the service, but having the wrong oil will void it.
  7. I have a feeling this car isn't going to needs its service now :(
  8. 0w-30 is for the diesels... I'd get it flushed and changed ASAP, it will technically have voided your warranty on the engine if it has been run.
  9. That's the Focus Black edition, same as your Fiesta. They've sold them for a few months now.
  10. Around 90deg C is the usual coolant temp the ecu aims to keep the car at. Anything over about 50-60 is too hot touch.
  11. Great place to come and say
  12. This is why all our premiums keep going up.
  13. IF it gets written off they will pay you what they feel it is worth (market value). Sometimes there is room for negotiation, as you only have 3rd party I don't know if you can get any help from your own insurer. Worth asking though, if they haven't told you already. I assume you have reported it to your insurance?
  14. Wouldn't surprise me if that is going to be a write off :(
  15. Has the MOT actually expired yet?
