After being told the last car i was about to buy was sold and talking to the sales manager with a very annoyed voice I was told it was a confusion after I spoke to the garages service manager. However I managed to succeed in buying the car which is a vw golf gti. So I wont be a true member on foc not owning a ford. But I would like to stick about as this is possibly the Best forum on the internet if its ok with you guys as your a fine bunch and deserve credit for the help and time you give others.
So thanks everyone for making my time here pleasurable and addictive at some points and hope to keep in touch with all who I have connected with.
P.s if you want when I get some pics of the new motor I shall post them so you can all laugh

You are very welcome to stick around on here Kieran,
Nice choice of motor,
Not the easiest to remap though as my mate has one and had to change some sensors prior to mapping,
Although much like the focus, the golf takes the mods well.
I look forward to some pictures once you get it home mate.
Excellent choice.

Shame your next car is not a Ford, but I'm sure you will have fun in the GTi.

 

Be sure to post up some pics, and be good to still have you around on the forum. We have at least 2 members of staff who don't have Fords anymore, lol.

thats a very well rounded car to have there! have you avoided the tartan seat option or was that something that tickled your fancy?

 

Yes i would like to see pics, i love how a red strip on a grill  can make a car much cooler!

Fantastic car Preee,
I had one whip me on the M1 one Sunday evening,
I could keep behind him around 5 bus lengths behind,
But there was no way I could close that gap and that was at 15.okmh 1.7bar boost
But where I didn't succeed in closing space,
That 15 minutes would have cost him half a tank of petrol only cost me less than a quarter tank diesel lol
Cheap thrills are the best
