  • Ford Model: Focus Elle 1.6

Posted 03 August 2010 - 09:43 PM

Hey all,
i have just bought a Focus Elle 1.6 52 plate, it came with a "boy racer" exhaust which even when i bought the car i didnt like it. I took it the garage locally and got a new one priced up for a "original" exhaust for it @ 143 for middle and front parts.

im just wondering if any body out there has got a original 52 plate Focus Elle 1.6 exhaust for sale :)

Have something to contribute?

to be honest they are few and far betyween and as ford exhausts tend to rust probably not worth fitting ide get the new one fitted and sell the boy racer one on ebay though usually they dont stop with the exhaust so ide see what else hes done to it

looking at the pic not really the alloys suit the car the spoilers fine as long as the cars engine was untouched far too many try to make induction systems fit with odd pipework etc if alls fine i wouldnt worry just been exterior mods they did

I spent 190 fitting a boy racer exhaust to mine! love it to peices though. The rear lights dont look standard and the chrome wiper blades deffo arent standard (even though the standard ford one are s**t).

Its nice to see someone else having a focus as there 1st car just watch for rust on the rear arches but even still its been owned by a boy racer some of them like me do look after the car and dont bodge stuff up even though my cars got a loud exhaust and the back of it looks like blackpool illuminations when i put my foot on the brake its still one of the tidyest focus's in my area.

Daft word of advice aswell mate even though its only a 1.6 you'l open her up and before you no it you'l be doing over a tonne they dont feel fast at all so keep your eye on the speedo also dont get to vicious with the steering in the wet if you dont trust the tyres because the !Removed! can kick out! all that aside there by far one of the most enjoyable, easy, cheap and fast first cars on the market

No offence, but unless its one of the facelifted MK2's or and ST/RS, it looks like an old mans car

MK1 looks much better B)

Just my opinion though :P

There is no argument that the Mk1 is a better looking car than the Mk2. But other than that the Mk2 is the better car. Especially in the area of safety features, and more so in relation to the earlier Mk1's. Such as front, side and curtain air bags, ABS +EBO. And it's a more roomier car to boot.

What Car Used Car of the Year- Small family car Just wished there had been 113bhp about that I rated presentation wise, when I was in the market to buy second hand. I would have liked the extra poke a 113 bhp would have given. But that said I'm quite happy with it really.

I came back to the Focus after having a Mk1.8 Focus, as they are a superb and effortless drive, that stick to the road like .... to a blanket.

If you lose your back end in a Focus, then your obviously driving like an adolescent :rolleyes: And anybody who pays good money to have a perfectly functioning exhaust replaced with one that makes a loud noise is definitely......... :D
