  1. Knowing how long 6th gear is, using it to go up a hill is likely labouring the engine, so not good practice anyway. Has your car had the recall done on the coolant pipe?
  2. What browser are you using?
  3. The pricelist tells you what options can be added.
  4. Finding someone has recently glanced my car, leaving a scuff and taking some paint off the rear bumper. :( I'm hoping it won't need a re-spray and I can add it the list of things I planned to ask a smart repair guy to touch up before Ford Fair (along with the argument my car lost with a bush).
  5. Rear looks very Ford to me, it's just the design from their estates and saloons, which I've always thought looked better than their hatches. Focus Estate rear looks much better than the hatch imo.
  6. I don't know what ford did between the MK3 and MK3.5 but the audio quality went backwards imo. The Sony system in my 2012 MK3 was great, it used to vibrate the rear view mirror and didn't even have a sub. I now have the premium Sony system with sub and it sounds worse, lol.
  7. Only thing I can think of is weight. Should be able to add it after.
  8. Vignale has already launched. It's only the ST and Active left to launch next year.
  9. Vignale has full leather, don't know if any option on the titanium X. I have full leather on my focus and can't wait to be rid of it.
  10. But all the Zetec and Titanium's are supposed to be smiling at you, lol.
  11. I'd say the screen looks better as a tablet than how it looks on the mk7 in the US. It's either that or they put it down by your knees like other manufacturers. I prefer the height of it there much safer as a sat nav. I never used to like the tablet on the dash look, but I don't think there is another way of doing it if you don't have either a bulky dash or it mounted down low.
  12. Test drive them both, I prefer the 125PS and it's better on fuel.
  13. The ST-Line took over from the Zetec S at some point in 2016, but both the 1.0 125PS and 1.5 150/180PS engines should be available on both Zetec S and ST-Line. The 1.6 Ecoboost was discontinued from the Focus at the end of 2014.
  14. Looks like a depressed Neanderthal to me.
  15. It's still rear torsion beam, brochure must be wrong. Probably copied from the focus, lol.
