GUIDE FOR ELM327 INTERFACE AND ELMFF2 + ELMconfig (RUSSIAN PROGRAMS)
What i will attempt to do is a guide for the FF2 (russian program) which will allow you to plug in a ELM 327 interface code reader into your focus Mk2 / Mk2.5 and update various parts of your car.

Program is made by some very talented guys from Russia
