  1. Keyless Ignition Start?

  2. 1.6 Ecoboost Fuel Figures?

    hi already posted this the other week but as you asked here is my response My Focus eco boost 150 does in the high 30's just about all the time unless i really thrash it - done nearly 6000 miles now I do a mix of miles, work is only 5 miles away plus other miles at weekend evening etc Easily get early 40's on a 75mph run just out of interest the other day i set it on cruise at 62mph on the motorway for a couple of hundred miles(it was quiet so i wasn't a road hog before someone says) and the car averaged 48mpg which i think is exceptional. Very boring though, good job it has a good sound system cheers Steve

  8. New Focus - One Touch Windows

    Does anyone know if the one touch up/down function can be switched on for all windows on a EB Titanium. All the switches have the 2 click just only works on the driver door cheers Steve
  9. New Ford Focus Titanium

    xxtrickzxx I have found a drip in the lacquer on my car as well. Right under the mirror and about 6" long. It is booked in at the paint shop in 2 weeks time to try and flat it out. I have told them I will not have the door resprayed as the car has only done 600 miles so if it will not flat they have said they will change the door from another new car so the paint is standard. Worth you asking if you can have that option as spray jobs are never a perfect match cheers Steve
  10. Focus Ecoboost

    Hi James I have just bought a Focus 150 eco boost and i think it is a great car, much better than the zetec (my opinion) The interior is much better for a start - i just hate the look of the ford radio. Read the brouchure you get much more gadgets in the titinium. i couldn't manage without cruise, motorway driving and speed cameras don't mix Don't like the cheap looking plastic grill either on the zetec. My car has the apperance option for keyless entry and tinted glass and the city pack - great I prefer the titanium wheels because the last focus i had ran on very low profiles and they are a hard ride and very noisy - comfort is more important for me only thing i would say against is i changed from a Focus 2.0 Tdci mk2 and it was rapid. The eco boost doesn't feel as fast, I think the lower torque is the main reason drive the cars, look in your wallet and at the end of the day make the right choice for you cheers
  11. Tuning Dab Radio?

  12. Tuning Dab Radio?

    Chris I have tried that and the button appears to do nothing thanks
  13. Tuning Dab Radio?

    Hi all just took delivery of my Focus Titanium eco boost. The car has a DAB radio. I have never used a DAB radio before and the handbook does not cover it's tuning. The radio is Sony I have pushed the radio button until it says DAB on the display but it just says no channels. If i am listening to normal FM radio it auto changes to DAB though. How do I tune the DAB channels? any help greatfully recieved thanks
  14. your guide is excellent I really struggled to get the ecu lower mounting bolts back in. I got the front one in after alot of swearing and I gave up on the back after removing too much skin
  15. Got my tuning box fitted Car accelerates much better and on a 500 mile motorway run has just returned 66mpg - which for me is excellent as best before was 57mpg. I am a bit heavy footed when overtaking!
