Right it's that time of year againg service and then in for the MOT. I'm going to do oil filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, air filter,pollen/carbon filter and check my rear brakes. I dont know if there is anything that i have missed if I have can you please tell me. Anyway this is what I wanted to ask what is the best spark plug for the focus mk1 1,6 as on eurocarparts they have bosch and denson plaugs, and are bosch fuel and oil filters ok aswell. Lastly can anyone tell me where I can get a K&N panel air filter thanks inadvance.

P.S. Where can I take my used oil too


Most councils will take used oil at their recycling centre.
