      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Servicing.

    Thought it was a lot cheaper. Need to ring the stealers up. Also get free puncture repairs! Wow! Hahaha. Get free breakdown cover from my bank so not worth it. Only going to them to keep up the full dealer history when I sell it on in a few years. The service at Ford Eltham is terrible anyway. Didn't even clean it last time. Take my Sirocco to a local.

  2. Servicing.

    Anyone had a look into servicing recently?? I signed up for the service club as it seemed a good deal. I have a 2013 Focus ST. About 100 off over a few years and free MOTs. But all I am hearing about is the 150 motorcraft service. Which would make my 24ppm service plan seem expensive. And info is welcome. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  3. Which is the best petrol

    Got an ST. Used to only run on VPower. But switched to Tesco momentum and seems to run better. Also saves 6p a litre which is welcome. But like others said. In a 1.6 the difference is negligible. There's certainly not an mpg increase like they all say. Just burns hotter so hopefully keeps the carbon build up down. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

  5. DPF Diesel Particulate Filter Cleaner

    It doesn't have any oil in the DPF as far as I know. Its just like an air filter. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Touch wood never had a problem yet. But I do a lot of miles! Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    People I've encountered at halfords are plain useless. Wouldn't trust them. Just do a motorway trip in a lower gear to clean it out. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Have you tried some premium diesel and a long trip up the motorway in a low gear to keep the revs up??? Would imagine thats just an octane booster ro increase the temps. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

  13. Remapping query & recommendations in Leeds

    Elite remaps. I had the well known premiertuning do mine. He uses elite maps in my 118D. Great job. 40k+ trouble free miles. As far as what stage to go for i cant imagine it makes any odds. If you drive fast you'll use more fuel. Drive smoothly at a sensible speed and you'll save it Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  14. Is a remap really worth it?

    If the turbo is fragile its going to go with or without a map. Guy at works got 160k on his 1.8 i think. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  15. Is a remap really worth it?

    Definitely. Do it. Remapped both my diesels. 1 series was great. Scirocco not so great off the line obv but great on the motorway. Mpg isn't really effected much. Will be of you drive around like you stole it. But same driving will be better. Pick up will be mich better. Engine will be much smoother. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
