  1. It's should say tyre pressures for all sizes of wheels on the driver side door sill. There is a white information sticker there. Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
  2. Unfortunately this is the case with those engines. They've been replaced by the ecoboost units now. Which I should have gone for but don't lose heart too soon. That engine you have, if driven properly, can surprise you sometimes. The power is there you just need to work at getting it out. If that makes sense. Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
  3. Yep, that'll be the tivct engine then. Same one I have. There's been many threads relating to this engine being sluggish so use the search function and start reading. Your local ford dealer will do a PCM update, if your car doesn't already have it, which will make the car a bit more lively. Other than that not much you can do about it. I love mine but agree that it can be sluggish at times. Try running the AC for a few minutes before setting off.
  4. A full list of parts needed would be awesome dude. Like did you need to change the front wings too ?
  5. Lol I didn't even notice ! Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
  6. They look good. I would have had them straight inline rather than angled but aye they look sweet. Did you get the engine cover off mate ?
  7. Some good replies here lads lol Turns out, after getting an agreed sale and mortgage application on the wife and mines first house, I may have to let the focus go for something a lot cheaper to do me for a while. Nothing is certain yet but there is a chance the focus will go. Obviously I'm happy about our first house but not impressed about the possibility losing the car. That's just life I suppose.

  8. I'm putting £40 in my 1.6 nearly every week as it stands. If the ST is similar to this then it wouldn't make much difference to me lol other than the fact it have the bigger engine. Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
  9. Aw don't be telling me that. Lol. I really want one. Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
  10. The decent Mondeo TitX Sports are all diesel which I refuse to have. They are cracking looking cars though. The newer petrol ones are out of my budget. I haven't actually driven a vRS yet so can't say how I feel about them. Another route would be spending the same money on a MK2.5 ST3 5Door. I've driven 2x of these and both times I couldn't believe the performance. It's the cost of filling the thing that's scaring me. Although I only really drove less than 3 miles to and from work everyday. Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
  11. Help me people. I'm thinking of changing the car for something bigger. Wife and I have just got sale agreed on our first home so as life is progressing pretty quickly I fancy a larger family car with a bit of poke. I can't stop looking at 2012 Skoda Octavia vRS 2.0t. Are they any good ? Anyone drive one ? Can't seem to stop looking at them, love the front end and size of the boot. Or maybe you guys can suggest another hot hatch/saloon for around £8.5k.
  12. Get some pics up documenting the progress bud. Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
  13. So I had a better look at my headlights tonight. It turned out it was some pi$$ head wbk had altered the horizontal alignment too far to the left. I managed to lodge a bit for my screwdriver in the socket and move it back to the same point as driver side. I'm sure it's not spose to be the same as driver side but it's a start. I'll get it looked at by a garage during the week. Driver side: Passenger side: I also changed out a flickering side light bulb. Those CEUK ones are just clean awful. Terrible life on them. In saying that, I've swapped them for other 501 bulbs that came in the set. I think they were labeled for the boot lights or courtesy lights: Here it is on the right with normal crappy bulb on the left: I think it's actually brighter and more blue than the other one. Definitely brighter:
  14. Apparently the MK3 headlights are a clean nightmare to take apart thanks to the permaseal. If I had a spare set maybe, I'd prob just dremel them open with a thin circular cutter. Other than that I'll just have to get my hand in there and 'forcfully persuade' the bigger back I to position. Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
