As the title says, tell us about your car owning history? What cars have you gone through to end up with your current Ford? Anything interesting? No leaving out the embarrassing ones!? haha
I'll start it off:
- '93 Peugeot 106 1.4 Diesel XND Graduate in White
What a beast!! My first car was incredibly cheap to run and never let me down but oh my was it slow and not to mention a little basic! Even a cigarette lighter was an optional extra! Good little first car though!
- '04 Ford Focus 1.8 Zetec MK1.5 3 Door in Machine Silver
Loved this car. My first Ford I was so pleased with after always admiring the Focus! Kept is for over 4 years with very few problems. Added a few subtle mods incuding ST170 wheels, ST170 upper and lower front grill, ST170 clear side repeaters, ST170 Air box, scoop, air deflector and K&N panel filter, Iridium plugs and upgraded ignition leads, full black leather interior with heated seats (retro fitted original factory spec buttons with illumination), HID headlight conversion and all other bulbs upgraded, pioneer bluetooth/ipod head unit and pioneer speakers all round, ST170 interior door handles, ST170 pedals, full colour coding of all outside black plastics, interior map lights retro fitted. I think that must be about everything. Sad to see it go!
- '07/57 Smart ForTwo 1.0 Turbo 84hp 451 in Black
Still have this as it's the wife's car although I drive it now and then. Took a little getting used to but have to say we both love it as a nice little run around. Surprisingly nippy and great on fuel/tax compared to the ST. Only put in a few upgraded bulbs and changed out the stereo to a pioneer as the original one sounded pants!!
- '08 Ford Focus ST3 MK2.5 3 Door in Moondust Silver
My current car and my pride and joy. Had it for more than a year and a half now and love every minute of it! Always wanted and ST and I have not been disappointed. Managed to find a tidy one with a few decent extras too. Mods so far include Bluefin stage 1 remap (what a difference!), K&N panel filter, de-resonated standard exhaust for a few more pops and a bit more noise, LED side lights and number plate lights to match the xenons, gloss black powder coated standard alloys, DMB gel overlays, bonnet lip wrapped in gloss black, bluetooth module upgraded to retro fit USB and bluetooth audio feature.
So let's hear about your car history and what brought you over to the Ford brand?
