  1. Feedback/complaint emailed to @MalmaisonHotels for how unbelievably difficult it is to book a table! #saturdaymoan

  2. Premium Fuel

    I did and it returned no results. I did it on my mobile though so not sure if that searches differently. Thanks for the link :-)
  3. Premium Fuel

    I've searched for similar topics but can't find any. What do you guys think of premium fuel such as shell v-power nitro+? My focus does state minimum 95 RON as far as I can tell shell vpower is 99RON. is it worth it? Not sure if I'd get more MPG but mainly for the detergents to help keep the engine clean. My new focus has only done 15k so don't imagine it being that dirty anyway, just wanted to know your thoughts. :-) Paul
  4. Low Battery Warning

    Stop start now works perfectly since the battery was fully charged! I asked about the engine fan and he said it wasn't anything to worry about as its related to the air con. However I was just sitting in the car setting up various voice controls, I turned the engine on so not to use the battery for about 10 min and the fan came on when I got out and the engine was warm but I'm sure this is normal. The fan went off after 1 min and I had not used the aircon.
  5. Low Battery Warning

    Only just noticed that video, sorry! Thanks for that though, quit einteresting. Its only done it a cuple of times since and it lasts about 50 seconds, so I'm not worried. As for the low battery I called the dealer and said I need it charged, I'd do it but its hard to get my car near me house. They insisted I brought it in to do it all for me, they also said they change the ford badge on the boot that is all cracked for free too! :) Happy days
  6. Roof Bars And Bike Racks

    Anyone recommend a good place to buy roof bars for my Mk3 2011 focus? I want the Thule wing bars and a couple of bike carriers Thule 591. Ford do an offer of the bars and 1 bike rack for £199 but I think they are the aero ones. Otherwise its £190 just for the wing bars and then £95 per bike carrier! Or can anyone recommend a cheaper alternative? I do tend to like the best of the best though! Thanks :-)

    I might hold you to that! I'm just around the corner from the Gateshead branch (the nice part too Lol)
  8. Low Battery Warning

    Okay guys you've lost me Lol are you still saying its normal? I have only driven the car a few mins this morning but the temp went up to half way quite quickly. But not fan when I got out. Thanks
  9. Low Battery Warning

    Thanks again for all your help, there is no outstanding field service actions needed, the dealer is going to ring me in a couple of days anyway, I'll ask then what he thinks of it. This forum is awesome btw, so helpful!
  10. Low Battery Warning

    Okay had it out for a run, no fan staying on so took it out again, this time having the a/c on for a few minutes, turned it off when it got too cold! Pulled up and the fan ran for about 1 min after engine stop. Does that help?
  11. Low Battery Warning

    Coolant level seems fine but quite hot, which I'm guessing is normal. I just took it for a spin and no fan on after engine switch off. But temp gauge jumped straight to half way when engine was turned on, but never went above. But it was only still for about 20 min. Appreciate your help on this though :-)
  12. Low Battery Warning

    Well it didn't do it after 2 lots of 35 min trips but it did it when I drove to my dads, about 15 min and then when I drove home about 10 main.
  13. Low Battery Warning

    its hard to tell as I was talking to my dad in the car before I got out maybe a min or 2? No more than that, I just never had a car do that before and it was whirring away quite loudly, it went off when i opened the bonnet. Might pop out and time it, I'm assuming if its just a short time its fine?
  14. Low Battery Warning

    eatc? Is that the climate control? Yes I do but don't think I had it on when I was driving home. I wouldn't know where to look for a fan, couldn't see anything! <_< I could just hear what sounded like a fan. ;)
  15. Low Battery Warning

    Well I have taken it for a couple of drives today as part of work. Then after the 20 journey home I parked up, turned the engine off got out locked the car and could hear a fan running in the engine. Did it for a few minutes after i locked the car, I did open the bonnet and and nothing seemed out of place but there was definitely a fan running away. Is that normal? Its a 1.6 Ecoboost if that's any help.
