  1. I own a Ford Focus Mk3.5 1.0 EcoBoost (125) and was wondering if there are any upgrade to better discs and pads or just replacing my current ones. Had a couple of instances after a spirited drive of brake fade/noise. Had a search on here but only found Mk2 info. Anyone got preferences to brands? EBC? Brembo? Mintex? Pagid?

  2. How yo doin'?
  3. Just a word of warning. Remember that wheels cannot pretrude out past the wheel arches by law. So if you do get spacers make sure it's all legal. Only takes a jobsworth to pull you up on it and make you change it back. I'm surprised your car didn't come with the super sporty suspension as standard.
  4. When you say 'loose' do you mean the aux port on your car? Where is it located? Can you get behind it to see if something is broken/not connected correctly?
  5. Evans Halshaw Ford updated my Focus software when it went in for an O2 Sensor replacement. You could always chat up the Ford grease monkey's!
  6. He's 74...AND a Sir
  7. Sneak up on said kill joy, tap on shoulder, place foot one inch past his family jewels, walk off. The End.
  8. Cleaning your car for a couple of hours and getting that lovely shine all over then relaising there's more dents, scrapes and chips than you thought...AND THEN seeing it's clearly had the front nearside bumper re-sprayed...BADLY!
  9. Nope. They detect MoT also. I was pulled when i drove my Puma track car as i'd forgotten to renew my MoT as thought it was a month late than it was.
  10. Well i have rented and taken back the rug doctor and i'm massively impressed! £22.99 for 24hrs and i did my house and car in that time! Bought the carpet detergent and already had an upholstery cleaner spray. Car seats have come up looking brand new and my house carpets are looking fresh! If you haven't tried this yet then do so! Cheap, easy with great results!
  11. I'm struggling to find anywhere that has a titanium wiring loom :( Do Ford sell the whole thing? Probably a silly amount of money though. I have all the other items ready to go.
  12. Photos please :)
  13. Sill protectors will protect the sill from scuffs and damage. The illuminated gear knob is from a titanium. The LED bulbs work better than the standard ford ones.
  14. I have used it from day one it appeared on the itunes :D Great app. I even input all other service parts/intervals etc. Have done for my past 4 cars :D
  15. I hear that! You may also want to get sill protectors too, illuminated gear knob and led's bulbs as and where you can too.
