  1. Probably a fault triggered it, especially if it went in to limp mode. I'd get a code reader/Forscan on it ASAP.
  2. help

    Ah, I thought when you said it didn't have USB, then you didn't have a port either. Possibly the bluetooth/USB module has been replaced with one that doesn't support it? Have you tried unplugging the module or pulling a fuse to see if it resets?
  3. help

    If you don't have USB, it won't support bluetooth streaming either.
  4. Might need a PCM update. My 2012 2.0 TDCI was really unpredictable until I had it updated, if I tried to adjust the throttle from it overrevving it would then cut all power and lurch like I'd hit the brakes. Othertimes I'd go to make a quick get away and get nothing.
  6. Anything before the turbo shouldn't require a remap. I doubt a stage 3 has much in the way of heatsoak protection though?
  7. Only red/black editions get the stitching.
  8. I think only the facelift got cup holder ambient lights. You should have submarine lighting too, so two little LEDs either side of the courtesy lights, or it might be just the pocket in front of the gear stick instead.
  9. It's only the black headlining which has changed, everything else was on the Zetec S editions before.
  10. The biggest advantage to the 125PS version in the Focus is that it nets you the 6 speed box. Much better than the old IB5 imo. I've driven my mum's estate with 5 people in it and it didn't feel sluggish.
  11. Has the wheel moved? Looks a lot closer to the rear bumper than the rear door.
  12. Focus ST-Line?
  13. Usually that's only cars they have already ordered themselves for stock. If you then make a big change to the spec, it sends it to the back of the queue like a new order anyway.
  14. Wow, bad advice. Could also just not bother getting any insurance. If you can't afford to insure the mods, even after shopping around then don't do them. It's usually cheaper to buy a faster car than modify your car when you are under 25.
