Cheers Lenny,

I think it was one of your guides i used about changing the climate control knobs in my car, got the same ones you do, there spot on so firstly cheers for that!

That picture in my profile is when i first got the focus 2 years ago, ill upload some newer ones soon. All I’ve done thus far is add white gel ford badges, mud flaps and removed the 'Focus' 'Zetec' & 'TDCI' badges giving the boot a clean look :)

I’m looking into getting the engine chipped or remapped at the moment, as well as some other cosmetic changes, I’ve held off not doing too much because of warranty but only 1 year left so i might just go mad!

Did you add that body kid to your focus yourself? As i see in your profile that it didn’t use to look like that.

No problem mate, and yes i purchased the full Zetec s kit from ford in the uk in june/july 2011 but I’ve had it stored up in the attic since then and finally got it down from their and fitted in early may of this year, cost me 400 euro to get it sprayed and fitted which was a complete bargain in my opinion, and frees up some space in the attic too lol my focus was a style model too but is now almost a Zetec s with an st dashboard.

Regarding the remapping of your car mate, assuming your car is the 90bhp 1.6TDCi
You can fit 110ps injectors from ford but they may need to be coded to the engine by ford diagnostic software, not a big job but your local ford dealer may charge 100 euro for this service, however when fitted along with a remap, a K&N filter and a code red intercooler, you would see your Bhp go from 90 all the way to around 156bhp!! And the cost for the intercooler, filter and injectors is probably around 1,000euro all in,
then your remap around 300-400 euro but well worth it for an additional 76bhp and lots more torque while still retaining the economical fuel consumption.

Here are some links to assist you in what i have been talking about:

Code Red Intercooler Upgrade:
http://www.european-...products_id=789
they were selling for 850 last year now down to less than 300euro

K&N Induction Filter
http://www.european-...roducts_id=1096

Ford Focus 110 Injectors
http://www.ebay.co.u...=item3a6c03699a

Code Red Engine Remap Unit
http://www.european-...products_id=721
you buy the unit then download the remap for your TDCi engine from the internet to the unit,
then plug the unit in to your focus to remap the ecu.

i purchased the kit from the same listings and seller as listed below,

rear Diffuser

Front lip
http://www.ebay.co.u...=item1c1cc2899e

Zetec S front upper grill

Ford S Badge for the fenders

focus zetec s custom mud flaps (Supplied with fitting Guide)
http://www.ebay.co.u...=item2a1e4de0e6

but now the price of a ST front bumper is cheaper than the zetec s front lip so you could purchase an st bumper and have a replica for much the same price. although when fitting the st front bumper you would require a new front lower grill and maybe some fog light surround sections.

Here are the ford fitting guides for the front lip and rear diffuser so you can see what is envolved if you were considering fitting them yourself or purchasing from the breakers,
