  1. Your Insurance Annual?

    62 plate focus st250 37 years old 2 years no claims £580 with my mrs as a named driver ( less if she wasn't on there). I live in the middle of Birmingham, parked on the street, which loads my premium some what!
  2. Higgsy's Mk3 ST thread

    The last photo was taken before I swapped the wheel nuts for a new set today so all are black now. Needed a new set of lockers anyway as the socket was looking a bit worse for wear and didn't want it breaking on me. Also a couple of nut had been replaced for ugly looking nuts These are ones I bought
  3. Higgsy's Mk3 ST thread

    Yup 19" style pack alloys painted matt grey. I'm not too sure exactly what I'm doing with her yet kind of in awe of the whole thing at the moment. Its my dream car and all that so just enjoying going for country drives ATM and enjoying the power. Today I fitted a new set of bulbs and led side lights, Intend to fit custom DRLs in the fog surrounds. Mostly done cosmetic/protection stuff so far. Clay bar and polish the other day. Rubber floor mats. Turned on a few things in the computer using elm327/focccus program.sorted out/replace some rusty screws ( spent the first 3 years by the sea. When the exhaust goes,I will fit a full stainless . Keeping it as stealthy and low key as possible
  4. Higgsy's Mk3 ST thread

    Black wheels nuts / locking wheel nuts fitted. Look a lot better than the chrome ones on there before
  5. Powertrain yellow icon

    Yes you bought it retail not private.
  6. WHAT EXHAUST!!???

    Unless things of changed, there were no off the shelf exhausts that were made exclusively for the zetec s when I was looking. Best bet is to take it to a powerflow (or such like) dealer who will custom build one for you - they are actually quite reasonable on price In the end I just had a custom tailpipe fitted (£60)- you can see it in my thread - link is in my sig.
  7. Front transformation complete!

    Looks mint
  8. New build thread coming soon......

    i used 108 on my mk2.5, feeds retrofitted auto dipping rear view mirror and dash cam
  10. WiFi/Ethernet help.

    Your laptop nic card is probably only rated at 10/100 dude. If you are connected via Ethernet you will get the speed of whichever device it the lowest. WiFi has many variables, I would say your speeds are good , again only as good as the sum of both parts
  11. Sport is just a trim level, if you have the 115bhp tivct they are pretty nippy
  12. That's just the way the gear ratios are
  13. Sounds normal to me, what you describe is similar to my 1.6 ti-vct, I would say engine noise it quite loud at 70/80, I just turn the stereo up
