sounds interesting, I have to be honest, I really wouldn't like the idea of a blown turbo on a 1.0 petrol in a Focus (if and when it goes), but I suppose its no worse than a diesel going (even a 1.6 or larger)...

I wonder if any owners have clocked a high mileage in it yet, and how it handles higher up the the odometer on a day to day basis!

Have something to contribute?

i would imagine they are put under quite alot of stress so wouldnt like to be owning one at 75k on the clock or upwards. i generally change car every 20k anyway but i think there may be afew problems starting to arise in 5 years or so

The ti vct makes a difference in the 1.6 so with a smaller lighter engine its going to be noticeable even the 1.6 wants to shift and its a lot heavier
