  1. What is this switch?!?!

    presumably aftermarket? certainly doesnt look oem!
  2. Things I Don't Like

    To be fair, websites and forums (like this one) have costs associated with running it - web hosting (the physical servers that this site run on, and the internet connectivity/bandwidth for the servers required to display this site to your eyes), is NOT free. But I completely agree that some sites over-do advertising. For example, sod watching a 20 second advert for a 30 second YouTube video.
  3. Spot The Poor Vauxhall!

    The new Astra's in the 1.4L turbo petrol guise do sound tempting, with the 6-speed auto. 150PS ain't too bad for a car of that size, roughly equivalent with Focus 1.5L Ecoboost, but you can get it for much cheaper. Of course I'd rather get the Focus, but if budget is tight, then I'd say the gap between Ford and Vauxhall might have narrowed a bit? But if I had one parked in my driveway, I would still wince every time I saw the badge on it lol. P.S: Please don't shoot me, my excuse is that I've had a bad week, so take anything I say for now with a pinch of salt
  4. Spot The Poor Vauxhall!

    Rode in a mate's auto diesel 13 plate Astra today. Must say it wasn't too bad! I feel dirty, and like I have sinned!
  5. MK3 focus - Yes or No

    actually there are widespread issues with mk3. the auto gearbox (powershift) dry clutch version on petrols on the earlier models (up until around 2013 build) were plagued with issues, juddering, and early failure. not just UK either, a worldwide issue (so definitely widespread). shame really, because other than that, its a great car. its like the only thing that would hold me off from upgrading from a mk2.5 to a mk3.
  6. Ford F-250

    Hi Carlos, welcome to Ford Owners Club! Shame that Ford do not care, after all, it is one of their own cars!
  7. also make sure the bios is updated to the latest version...
  8. perhaps try a clean windows install (after reformatting), and try again. if it still doesn't work, then perhaps its a hardware issue, and you should return it for warranty repairs...
  9. Spot The Poor Vauxhall!

    Had to do quite a search to find this old thread, but thought I'd post this - the cause of the M6 crash was found to be a Poxhall attempting to mate with a VW in the middle of the motorway. I think the VW has seriously low standards!
  10. Things I Don't Like

    Thanks both for opinions. Tom - no prior slowness whatsoever before the video (actually driving quite fast, as I'd been stuck on my commute for over an hour by that point). I scanned the lights ahead and saw that they were red, and plus traffic was moving really slowly, hence why I gave way. Otherwise I'm definitely not one of those that slam on the brakes at 30mph in residential areas to let people out of side-streets (in fact I find it very annoying). Still appreciate your viewpoint, maybe it actually would have been preferable to NOT give way in that situation.
  11. Things I Don't Like

    So apparently my YouTube video is starting to get some hateful comments lol. Was I in the wrong there? You folks can tell me if I was, I have thick skin
  12. Things I Don't Like

    Things I don't like - coming across this &*%$ in a BMW on the way home...
  13. My 2014 Focus Titanium Ecoboost

    very nice, so jealous of how clean your car is!
  14. is there a difference in glass thickness between mk2.5 and mk3? curious...
  15. Things I Do Like

    When people really SLAM your car doors shut. Probably one of my biggest peeves. Seems disrespectful.
