  1. Good Bye Focus.

    They have repaired the alloy but I made them agree to a guarantee that if it cracks again they will replace all 4 alloys. Sent from my D5803 using Tapatalk

    Apparently it's cracked on a previous repair. Suspension seems ok. Had a drop link replaced. But the crack is on the drivers rear wheel. Sent from my D5803 using Tapatalk

    It turns out the alloy was cracked not buckled. Is it safe to have them repaired or would it be a new alloy job? Sent from my D5803 using Tapatalk

    That is a very good point. I hadn't thought of that one. Cheers. I know they still have it at the moment. Sent from my D5803 using Tapatalk

    The garage has emailed back saying they want to take the vxr to their mechanics. So it's going in Monday afternoon so should have a better idea as to what's going on by Wednesday. I'm estimating the issues to be about £2500-3000. Watch this space. Sent from my D5803 using Tapatalk

    I've emailed him stating the problems and remained calm but just let him know I will take things further if needed. I said I'd like to resolve this amicably and now I'm just waiting on their response. Sent from my D5803 using Tapatalk

    So the wheels on the vxr have been confirmed buckled. I have emailed the garage who sold it to me requesting a refund and my focus back. Stoney do not laugh. Lol. Any tips on how to deal with this if the garage does not play ball?? Sent from my D5803 using Tapatalk

    I had an oil leak that is now fixed. Was just the gasket on the oil feed pipe. I have now got quite a bad coolant leak. I'm thinking it's the head gasket. Also noticed a tiny note in the paperwork saying all wheels buckled. It's going to my trusted garage in the morning so the first thing I'll get them to check is the wheels. Brand new replacements are approximately £1600. They are 19inch. It's all covered under their warranty so I'll see what actual issues there is and report to the garage to let them make a decision.

    So it looks like stoney could of been right. I may be a ford owner again soon. Had a few issues with the vxr. It's going to the garage tomorrow to see if it's viable to fix. If not I'll be heading back to the garage I brought it from to get my focus back. Will update tomorrow. Sent from my D5803 using Tapatalk

    If everyone had the same taste the world would be boring mate. Are you saying that purely because it's a vauxhall though? Lol.
  13. Good Bye Focus.

    It does look like it. But it's the puddle on the floor. Lol
  14. Good Bye Focus.

    no never. Lol.
  15. Good Bye Focus.

    I've got the 19s on this and I'm so scared to let the Mrs drive it. Lol. I've only put my foot down a few times. The first time I nearly craped myself. Lol. Ok mate cheers. Will definitely check them out.
