  1. Agree on the comments about LEDs not lasting long. Bought a proper expensive pair too, and they only lasted about a month or two before starting to flicker. Useless, went back to the stock bulbs, not worth the headache.
  2. On the topic of spiders, I hand washed my Focus yesterday and sprayed lots of window cleaner/chemicals inside both wing mirrors, to make spiders not wanna live there. (ALWAYS have had wing mirror spiders on both mirrors, they seem to love the Focus unfortunately.) Wake up this morning to drive the car to work - lo and behold the darned thing is back, on my left wing mirror, complete with a huge web! Any cheap way to get rid of these permanently? It's literally my biggest peeve!
  3. Ouch mine is nothing compared to that, reading that made me wince!!
  4. Burning and cutting the same finger, in the same day. Normally not this clumsy lol, today must be cursed (haven't had any accidents in over 6 months).
  5. I think you were horribly wrong about that lol. Nevermind a couple days ahead, the weather guys can't correctly predict a couple hours ahead!
  6. Today was boiling hot 30/31C by the temperature reading on the car, and the aircon struggled a bit :( Unless it's blowing in your face to cool you down, it struggles to cool down the car to a comfortable temperature. Not a problem with mine, it's just the Mk2.5 Focus never had great A/C, as evidenced by the numerous Aussies whining on Australian Ford forums, and if it struggles at 30C, imagine what it's like at 40C!
  7. Where do you get your watermelons from Ghana? I recently got back from holidaying in Turkey, and ate like Watermelon twice a day, I cannot resist the stuff! (That said, its not something you would typically look forward to eating on a cold UK summer's day )
  8. I will never touch anything with "Ka" in it's name with a barge pole, even if it costs 20K! Brings shame to the brand!!
  9. I hate driving behind diesels, period!! 8/10 times they are smelly, smoky, or both.
  10. Well I have 25 BHP less than you, and an auto to go with it too, but it's easy for me to join motorways, even easier if I give it the beans (only time it's not easy is if it's uphill ramp, and the AC is on). Might be something wrong with your car...
  11. Citizens Advice Bureau might be able to help? Or better idea yet Jeebs, post this thread on consumeractiongroup.co.uk forums, they're really excellent at giving free, non-professional legal advice. Been very useful to me.
  12. Haha feel exactly the same way - for wanting the same car that I currently have, but a better version of it! I want a Titanium model with tints, heated seats, 5 spoke steering wheel, most importantly CRUISE CONTROL, better looking alloys, etc...
  13. Surely this is a matter that requires legal advice, and possibly legal action to follow?
  14. If they used 8 miles worth of fuel, then that's something. But if they actually drove around for 8 miles, that's an entirely different matter, and cannot have any proper justification behind it IMO. It's not a service, it's an MOT, the car is supposed to be mostly stationary...
  15. Was going to rent a garage from the council for a couple of months, so my mother could park her car there while on holiday. I parked my own Focus in an equivalently sized garage last summer, and it was a tight squeeze but just about managed to. Apparently a Honda CRV won't fit. Cue multiple tries, lots of swear words, parking sensors bleeping like crazy, and nearly knocking off the roof antenna (height is also ridiculously low). I mean come on, it's far from a Hummer H1. I strongly suspect a Mondeo wouldn't fit either - how !Removed! useful!
