  3. thanks. Will look into it when i pickup the car this week. any thoughts on the alloys? my mk3 has th 18" 5 spoke alloys and the mk3.5 has the 18" y-spoke alloys.....havent seen any mk3.5s with the 5 spoke ones, but the salemans at ford said he could put the same ones on IF i wanted....
  4. Hi All, I have just purchased a new 2016 'facelift' (mk3.5) Focus in px with my mk3 2012 Titanium X. First impressions of it are that it does appear to have a few improvements. The centre adjustable cup holders seems to be a nice touch too!. Upon opening the doors and boot I did notice straight away that it seemed much lighter (not sure if 'flimsy' is the right word) in comparison to the previous version. I also noticed that they don’t have the flip-out rubber door guards when opening the doors too. I was a little on the fence as to whether this was a good thing - ie. Cutting costs to make the car lighter, or a bad thing - ie. Less durable. What prompted the though was the fact I had an accident earlier where a driver clipped my car door whilst I was putting in my son in the rear child seat. The result, a loud impact, but hardly any damage…barely a scratch. Im guessing it was down to the durable materials used for the doors? Other than that the new car seems to have every option available that I was missing (nav + rear cam)…everything except a sunroof (which isnt a big issue) I have read a few reviews to suggest the newer facelift model is "possibly the best focus yet". It would be interesting to find out if any other forums users could share their experiences moving from the mk3 to the mk3.5. (anything from interior/exterior, performance in comparison) Any thoughts would be much appreciated?
  5. Hi, Seems to be an intermittent issue, but sometimes when I unlock the car it unlocks the trunk/boot too. I realise when i start to drive off the notification that the boot is open. Anyone else have this issue or have any suggestions? usually unlock it by opening the door (not from key fob) ...can't remember if i used the fob when this issue occured last tho..
  6. Hi All, Has anyone had any issues with the rubber around the doors on their Focus? Attached is a photo of mine, which shows it hanging off and sticks out everytime the door is opened. I've got it sorted (they stuck it back with something...glue? resin??) twice now. they dont seem to have a permanent solution for this. any suggestions??
  7. UPDATE:Provisionally signed up (just need to get my credit card from home to finalise :)...seems like a good deal ..for me anyway...as it's my 1st service and dont know any decent locals...was also advised that i could cancel anytime and be refunded up to the last service (ie. if 11months later i decide to sell the car and cancel before the next service, i would be refunded the amount i paid...with a £30 admin fee...which still works out cheaper)....any thoughts on this?
  8. defo not worth it if your car is less than 3 years old. I'm yet to find an independent....searched here and google, but no joy

  11. booked mine in for a recall this Friday. first registered June '12.... is this something to be worried about?...got to make 2 trips to Gatwick Airport this week from east london (~65mls each way)
  12. Hi all, not sure if this is the right topic but have a quick question. Got a baby due in the next 2weeks and everything's kinda pushed back my plans to look into servicing the car (since i purchased it last Summer) From my experience, I've always gone with local garages that have a good enough feedback from other car owners. Even more recently, tried to fix an issue with my dad's Ford a few months back and the Ford dealership. They were about as useless "as !Removed! on a bull' and would not fix the a faulty parking sensor - despite him buying it from there 1 month before.... anyway..long story short...Havent had much luck with Ford dealerships. Can anyone recommend any honest garages that actually know their stuff? (particularly in east london) much appreciated.
  13. it's taken from the front looking back under the driver's seat. no errors come up when driving the car though..i was thinking maybe the heated seats??...havent tested it yet...can anyone confirm?
  14. Hi All, was going to clean the car when i noticed a wire underneath the driver's seat. It's not connected....is this important or need to connect somewhere????????? its a 2012 mk 3 focus titanium x
