  1. Hi, i recently bought a 10 plate focus from a dealer and yes the 3 years warranty is still effective as long as the car has the correct service intervals i believe! i'm sure there is someone on here who can explain better than me though
  2. i've recently bought a 10 plate 1.6 tdci and gotta say i love it! i only do short journeys through the week just to work and a total of 15 miles a day but at the weekends i have a nice drive upto newcastle from sheffield or an alternative 45 min drive if i go fishing instead so hoping i wont have any DPF issues which have been mentioned! i've read some of the figures of the mpg for the 1.6 tdci above and i'm getting quite abit more, i'm currently averaging 61 mpg just driving to work and back, this is not based on my long journeys at the weekend as i regularly reset the average mpg counter just to see how i'm driving, then when i reset it for the journey up north near enough every time i get 70+ overall i love the car, its not as sluggish as what i thought it would be, having previously owned a Focus ST i was quite worried about the difference but i was pleasently surprised! i'm not saying the 1.6 tdci is any where near the performance of the ST but was happy with the tdci's performance!
  3. thanks jeebo! that was basically the same thought i had! i've seen a few with 'focus' which i thought looked rather good but tempted by having my initials 'SMG' so it a little different!
  4. morning everyone, just curious as to whether the vinyl covers for the 3rd brake are road legal? seen some around where you can have your choice of letters cut out on a vinyl strip which stick over the 3rd brake light and therefore light is only seen through the letters etc or are there better alternatives than just the sticky vinyl covers? cheers, shaun
  5. i believe that there will defo be a mk3 focus st but unfortunately the 2.5L Volve engine will be replaced with a 2.0L eco boost offering around 250bhp! the sound the 2.5 Volve lump produces is just awesome and tbh without this the ST will loose some of its character!
  6. only one car for me on that list and thats the RS! having previously owned an ST it was a fantastic car and the RS is even better, keep my fingers crossed for a lottery win haha
  7. should be completely free and no need to pay labour charges! :D
  8. tried it on mine today, happy to say that it works! why are little things like this not in the owners manual? unless i've missed it lol
  9. been thinking of getting myself a pressure washer and also starting to use the snow foam. i've read previous posts on snow foaming and understand what i need but was wondering if anyone could recommend a decent pressure washer? been looking at this: http://direct.tesco.com/q/R.210-7948.aspx cheers, Shaun
  10. i feel left out, i have a 2010 focus and mine doesn't clunk at any time
  11. all sorted now, thanks Lenny :)
  12. thanks Lenny, i'll av a look after work!
  13. very nice car mate, i miss my ST-3, absolutely loved the car but could not justify the running costs anymore and i understand when you mention the MPG! even on a gentle run from Sheff to Newcastle barely going over 65 the best i got was 38.9! watch out for the alternator going, very common problem with the ST's and also the oil diaphragm is a common problem around the 50k mark! apart from those they are an awesome car!
  14. hey all, does anyone know how to get to the bulb in the glove box? i've removed the 4 screws at the top but the cover within the glove box doesn't seem to want to budge! also how do you remove the courtesy light cover? cheers
  15. just want to check whether the focus fogs are H8's or H11's on a 2010 registered focus? just checking because when i had my 06 focus all the websites etc i looked at all stated that they were H8's, however when i got some and tried replacing they dint fit and were indeed H11's just thought i'd check before buying any this time lol
