Been meaning to do this for a while now!!!

Heres a few pictures of my new motor - just cleaned and polished LOL

Thanks for all the pre purchase advice, specially Jeebo - very helpful info.

Got this motor for a cracking price too. (especailly as the previous owner got a new fuel pump and injector kit as well as a cambelt change just over 18 mths ago!!!)

Your fine for a while mate - the Cambelt is due at 100000 miles or 8 years whichever is sooner, although its best to get it done at around 80000 miles or so i've heard - something to do with tensioners i think was mentioned?? - Looks like you got plenty of time unless you do ubber mileage LOL

Only reason mine was changed is coz the ford dealership had to remove the belt to change the fuel pump so a new belt was put on - Good thing too. Belt is only like £40/50 - its the labour that costs usually. Currently got 63000 on the clock, work was done about 18mths ago by previous owner at around 46000 miles

Yup - once i saw a titanium that was the model i really wanted - although i would of been happy with a Zetec Climate.

I looked for a zetec climate with my alloys and couldn't find one so i chucked the quick clear and got big wheels lol. Do about 2000 a month at the mo but due to my unique driving style there overtaking miles ;)

Haha small world i'll keep my eyes peeled!

Yep that's a fine looking motor you got there Barry, and yes nice part leather seats. A Titanium I see but no cruise control, pity that ............I think Ford realised their mistake to omit cruise control as standard on the Titanium. Took them until 2009 builds to wise up.

i liked the cruise control on our titanium but i think the 4 spoke steering wheel was ugly , i much prefer the 3 spoke in the zetec we have now :)

I agree about the ascetics of the three spoke wheel, but on a 300/400 mile trip down to Cornwall I'd rather have the cruise option than a nicer looking steering wheel. :huh:

Thanks for posting the pictures. I have been looking to change my steel wheels for some alloys and i couldn't decide which ones. Now i've seen the wheels on your car i know which ones i want.
