  1. Kpgs Mk3 Focus Titanium

    Beautiful car and the right engine too. I love the Tit X Sports.
  2. First Focus...

    Enjoy it and don't worry about the DPF

    With that mileage you don't really warrant buying a diesel; anything under about 18,000 a year you might as well get a petrol. Compare the equivalent petrol engined car to the one you're considering. From a quick look online you can get a 65 plate ecoboost for around the same price with half the miles!

    What benefits are those? Having higher service and repair costs? Any benefit gained from fuel economy can soon be wiped out by a big repair bill like for a DPF, DMF etc. Plus unless it is a Euro 6 diesel the residuals of the car will drop like a lead weight. As Euro 6 came in around Sept 2015 It is unlikely the OPs car will be one.

    So question, do you actually do enough miles to warrant buying a diesel?
  6. Ford 1.6 Ti-VCT which fuel to use, Super or Normal?

    My local station is 1.179 for Momentum vs standard at 1.139; but the extra cost is mitigated by the difference in MPG.
  7. Ford 1.6 Ti-VCT which fuel to use, Super or Normal?

    You can use Super if you want but you don't need to; the engine is designed for a minimum of 95 RON. If you did put Super in it you'll probably find it runs slightly better, gives a bit more torque lower down and you'll see a slight increase in MPG. I have the Mk3 with the same engine as yours and I run it on Tesco Momentum 99 and I find it makes the car run better and my MPG improves from 39mpg to 42mpg; but it's purely up to you, the engine doesn't need it like others.

    Probably worth no more than £300-500.

    What sort of bodywork issue and what sort of mileage/condition etc?
  10. Kpgs Mk3 Focus Titanium

    It's September 2011 (61 reg).
  11. Kpgs Mk3 Focus Titanium

    Etis says there is no updates for my car?
  12. Kpgs Mk3 Focus Titanium

    Ah okay, I'll check with my dealer when my service is due to see if I have an update. Only had my focus about 3 weeks but I'm loving it so far and it replaced a 1.6 diesel, unbelievably I'm not missing the torque!
  13. Kpgs Mk3 Focus Titanium

    PCM update? Whats that?
  14. Kpgs Mk3 Focus Titanium

    I know what you mean about them being underpowered but them sometimes they go like a stabbed rat. I love the look of yours though!
  15. Hi, Just wondering what peoples thoughts are on the best cleaning/detailing products? I've always used Autoglym products myself due to ease of purchase and price; plus I've never really had a reason to change as the results they give are very good. However, I'm open to suggestions, what else is good? I don't really want to spend more than £20 maximum on a product... I've added some pictures of my car using autoglym products below and I've just used BSC, SRP and EGP. Any other suggestions for a better finish? Cheers Craig
