  1. Thanks for the reply guys, I think the safest way to go is a tuning box then, I've still got 2 1/2 years warranty felt on the car and don't want to get anything done that could void it, I will check out the DTUK box and have a look around, anyone else got any recommendations ? Did have a look on ebay Nd this come up http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Performance-Box-RaceChip-Pro2-Ford-Focus-III-DYB-2-0-TDCi-120kW-163PS-Tuning-/321041361830?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item4abf8e6ba6 Cheers
  2. Wow that's unreal MPG, I've only had mine 2 weeks but only had 2 days play as I'm on holiday at the minute. Mines showing 38 MPG, Stock says 52 but online it states real as 40. I'm just cautious as it's still got 2 and 1/2 years warranty, not sure what to do, what can be done to make it quicker without voiding the warranty ?
  3. Can't you now do something with the ECU to fool the system thinking the DPF is there ? As I've said I'm new to all this, I've read that the removal of the DPF is illegal ? Would it not fail the emissions mot test ?
  4. Haha they look like something out of The Fast and the Furious :)
  5. Thanks for the reply, Yes I thought the warranty would be void like wise the insurance, would a new air filter and exhaust still invalidate the warranty, I know a remap would but would need to set it back to original map if anything happened. Remap or something like Blue fin plug n go ? Cheers
  6. Hi guys Would you be kind enough to give any help into what I should be upgrading on my car, I'm thinking about getting a remap done but not for a few months. I basically want the car to have better acceleration, I have a 63 plate Focus zetec sport 2.0 TDCI 160BHP powershift. Once it's out of first gear it really shifts it just seems a little sluggish off a standing spot. I would have a guess and say a new exhaust and good air filter are a must but have no idea what make is best. (I would not be fitting these myself) Any good web sites ? Cheers.

  8. That was one of the things I was going to do, I'm on holiday and back next week, I need to buy a manual, any idea where I can get a book from ? Cheers
  9. Thanks for the reply, it's my first nice car as my other is an old Clio, it states on different websites that the combined should be 52mpg but also states real as 40mpg, I guess the combined of 52 is a load of crap but the real is what you really get out of it. Thanks again.
  10. Hi guys, New to the forum and guess there will be a great deal of advice and information. Last week I had an almost brand new Ford Focus Zetec 163 Sport 2.0 TDCI powershift delivered, I bought it from a Macklin motors branch in Scotland, as I understand it the official MPG combined should be 54 MPG and real (estimated) should be 40 MPG The car was used as a demo from new, when I bought it it had 3500 miles, It was driven all the way from Scotland to Buckinghamshire which is almost 400 miles, I then took it on a 70 mile all round trip down the M25 and M11 then back home, it's been around town a bit too so it's had a good "Drive" My question is it's showing an average of 38MPG, I have no hand book which I need to buy so I am unsure if there is anything wrong with it, should the MPG be a lot higher ? 38MPG seems quite crap. What's the difference between the combined and real MPG ? what do they mean, I would have thought doing all the motorway driving should have given it a better MPG. The only thing I can think is because the car has been used as a demo for a good 6 months could the injectors be clogged ? It has not had a good drive till the last week. Thanks
