  1. The time has new Focus!
  2. The time has new Focus!

    Think it might be pushing it to pass his test and book a stand pass for this year, lol.
  3. The time has new Focus!

    Are you going to come to Ford Fair in the next year to two with it then? :)
  4. The time has new Focus!

    Just remember you need to declare things like the grille and spoiler to your insurance. Mud flaps are normally considered accessories so is OK unless it is someone like admiral.

    Appearance pack is usually privacy glass and 18" alloys.

    It depends how much driving you have done leading up to passing your test. The more the better. I ended up driving my mums car to sixth form after passing my test as she didn't use it very often and it was the car I learnt in. That was only about 5yrs old iirc. The important thing is just to give yourself lots of time to think and react. Most accidents are as a result of people driving too fast or too close and not paying attention. The 1.0 focus is a great car, although I personally would have found it too big to be my first car.

    Nice one. Need to update your profile pic with your real car now :)
  8. Performance Air Filter

    If you need to change the filter every 6 months you'll probably need to clean an aftermarket one even more. They have a lower filtering capacity and an exponential increase in "clogging" due to significantly less surface area. It's in the link I posted. Reducing intake restrictions can still help with responsiveness. Also noise depending on the model, like the mk2/2.5 snorkel. I'd be looking at an ST airbox to add an extra intake pipe to the box if it was me. That said everyone has their opinion on this. But I'd wager you only notice the difference with an aftermarket filter when it very first goes in due to it being completely clean. Reducing restrictions should be a permanent benefit.
  9. Performance Air Filter

    I use the paper filter if its good for a 350PS RS its good for every Focus using the same filter size/box. Give this a read: You are better off trying to reduce restrictions on the intake and just changing the paper filter every year.
  10. 13 plate focus drivers window fault

    If you have had it serviced by Ford for all 3 services then take it to a different dealer. There is usually a bit of discretion for problems only just outside warranty.
  11. Going into reverse

    There is no synchro on reverse gear for the B5 gearbox fitted to the Fiesta. Make sure you are at a complete standstill and not moving forwards at all. Give it a few secs with the clutch down and if it still won't go in put it in neutral, release and disengage the clutch then try again. You soon get used to feeling when it has and hasn't gone in and adjusting accordingly.

    Are you out of warranty?
  13. No Audio - HELP!

    Have you tried turning the volume up while in a call?
  14. TV'S looking at reviews ??

    You are only future proofing with a 4k TV if you are either really close to the TV or are buying over 65". Otherwise you are just throwing money away. If you have the room I'd take a 55" 1080p over a 4k 50" any day.
  15. TV'S looking at reviews ??

    I really rate whathifi reviews too.
