because it stops them from inspecting the upper engine bay n components....   ive had the same advisory's since owning the car lol
 
hope ford replaced the bolt and clip for ya? 

:lol: no ford said :Removed! All and said it all day lol
Was only when i went for dpf internal removal we found there blunder,
NCT over here only check a list of things,
For example levin was leaking oil, but its not on there list to check for that lmao

different rules on the NCT aswell Kurt the dpf looks completly factory i want them to fully inspect it :lol:
And if probing the exhaust ive got a duplex thats 50% more air mixing with the fumes from a single exit aswell.

I had avon ZV5 on my old focus and they were a seriously good tyre for the money, and my local Ford stealer was actually the cheapest option around

Hello mate i'm tyre fitter and work with all brands i had AVON and hated them.

If you go for mid range tyre go for the best ones like HANKOOK absolutely brilliant!

I love Avon.
Currently on ZZ3's but will get ZV5's on the next change as the ZZ3's were discontinued.
I find them very grippy and tough.

My local tyre specialist highly recommend Avon and I'm very impressed great lateral grip aswell,
Suppose it all depends in what you want them for and expect from driving,
If i was in a drift car i wouldn't use Avon ZZ5 as there too grippy,
Each to there own
