  1. I have a 2009 2.0 TDCi Ford Focus Zetec which I am possibly looking to sell. Now I currently have it under finance. The settlement figure for paying off the Finance is £5500. First of all what I'm looking to know is, is it legal to sell a car under Finance? And if not then secondly, is it possible to sell without too much difficulty? Thanks guys.
  2. I own a 2009 Ford Focus 2.0 TDCi, which I bought used in June 2012. I have had a couple of issues with it, but none more so that what has recently occurred with the car. I took it to a garage which specializes in Remapping cars, I know the guy who was working on it. Anyway, at first there was an Error Code for a DPF related issue which caused my car to be stuck in Limp Mode. Now, I got my DPF removed and still it was in Limp Mode, so he put on another piece of Software which after tweaking, eventually took it out of Limp Mode and made the car drive(able) again. However there was an issue and the car wouldn't make boost. At first we thought it was a Vacuum Line from the Actuator, which it turned out not to be. Secondly they thought it was the Pressure Converter, but when replaced we found that didn't do the trick either, and now we think the Turbo is on the way out. Now it's not a definite that it is the Turbo, but I need to know firstly, what kind of Garrett Turbo my car has got, and secondly how much can they cost to buy and get replaced? Also, any information on what you think may be the case would be very appreciated!
  3. I understand what your saying and those are upgrades that I'm gonna get in time. If my remap does have an effect on the car then I will definitely be taking it back to where I got it done!
  4. Why when you say one thing does someone assume they know everything... I have photos to prove my remap took my focus to 187bhp
  5. Yeah mate! I got my 2.0ltr 136bhp remapped on Tuesday and it was the best thing I have done. Its now got 187bhp and 405 n-m of torque! Well worth it!
  6. Now can I just ask what you did to it? How bad is the damage?
  7. Looking to mod the Focus :D!!

  8. It would probs cost about £200 for a front bumper. And no I don't believe its Colour coded, at least not if you were getting it new.
  9. Is anyone selling any Focus ST parts? If so I would be extremely interested. I have a 2.0ltr Zetec atm, but I have a few things in mind to make it outstanding! Cheers

  11. Can't wait to get my new CAR!!! :D

  12. I know that, but I was asking Stoney871 if he informed the insurance company
  13. So did you let the insurance company know?? And what is Bluefin??
  14. Cheers buddy!!

  15. Well I currently drive a 2002 1.4ltr VW Golf... I'm now looking at buying a 2.0ltr TDCi Focus Zetec... But also looking at a 1.6ltr Petrol Focus Zetec S... Now I am looking at something that's a lot quicker than the Golf, but I need a bit of advice, and who better to ask than the ones that drive the cars...? I was also thinking about getting it remapped, which of course would do bugger all to a Naturally Aspirated 1.6 Petrol, and quite a bit to a 2.0 TDCi... Really need advice??
