  1. thanks. it helps.
  2. Hi, I am about to buy a new set of tyres for my Ford Focus Zetec-S MK2 facelift. At the moment I have two different pairs of tyres (205/50/17) with 93XL load. The confusion comes from blackcircles.com, which determines the standard size and load for my focus as 205/50/17 W 89. The problem is that I cannot find a desired tyres with W 89 index, while there are plenty of XL tyres of 205/50/17 size. What would you do if you were me? Would you buy W 89 index tyres only or it is perfectly ok to go for 93XL tyre? Are there any implications on insurance, car performance, etc.? Thanks!
  3. Thank you guys for your opinions. I went to see the car and its service history. what stroke me was that the previous owner bought 12tyres over the last 3 years. Now this car is fitted with 13th & 14th tyre. Unfortunately, the garage failed to explain such huge number of tyres and the rest of car's history. result - I haven't bought it... thanks again guys.
  4. yes, i believe this is an ex company car. will you consider it to be an issue? I am still wondering about the unevenly worn tyres. How expensive the problem with suspension can be?
  5. Hi everyone, I was offered a Focus Zetec S 2009 2.0 TDCi with 70,000 on a clock (last service was at 51,000) for 8000 quid. It comes with a RAC independent inspection report saying: The exhaust has been identified as having limited life because, although there was no leakage, there is external corrosion present and the inside of the system, which may have significant deterioration, cannot be inspected. Due to the exterior being dirty, only a limited inspection of the exterior paintwork could be carried out. Therefore some minor defects may not have been detected/noted. The minor stone chips and scratches, indicated in this report, would benefit from repair, which would enhance the cosmetic appearance of the vehicle whilst helping to prevent further deterioration. Uneven tyre wear; as indicated in this report, may indicate incorrect geometry which can result in excessive and rapid tyre wear. Therefore a full steering alignment and geometry check is strongly recommended. the brake/clutch fluid level requires to be topped up. Whilst the examiner was unable to detect a leak from the systems, further investigation into the reason for the loss is strongly advised. As the braking system's fluid content is prone to water / condensation absorption the examiner advises that the brake fluid be completely replaced, in accordance with manufacture's recommendations. Right side light is dull. Right headlight lens is cloudy. Brake warning light is ON. Both front brake discs are corroded/ridged. Sounds like a lot of problems. What would be the worst case scenarion if I buy a car like this? My question would be how likely is the leak in the braking system? What will the repairs cost me? Regarding the tyres, can it be a suspension issue rather than geometry?
  6. Hi, I am new to this forum. I am thinking of buying 2009 focus zetec s and was wondering whether it comes with cruise control as standard? Thanks
