Welcome to the forum,

You've come to the rite place,

Click on my aviator picture to see my list of guides including fitting zetecS front lip, rear diffuser,

Aswell as a guide on egr blanking your 1.6tdci I highly recommend you do that,

Power is power but corsa is not popular on the forum :)

You can fit ST bumpers front & rear straight swap, there cheaper than the zetecS kit from ford so bound to be cheaper from breakers too.

The focus looks good standard though,

Few subtle mods such as titanium spec lower grill, fog surround DRLs, and an ST/ZetecS rear spoiler

Eibach lowering springs on some 17 or 18" rims it will look just as good for a 1000 less than fitting a body kit.

Will also be lighter ;)

Yea have been looking but not 100% sure which will fit as bit confused with the mk2 and mk2.5 to which i have and what will be a straight swap?

Welcome to the family Martin, although I am concerned you miss the POWER of the CORSA (two words I never thought would come together!)

Therefore it is our obligation to ensure you get the most power out of your Focus as possible and trump upon your past ownership :p

How many horses difference is there in your Focus compared to the menace you previously had? :p

I just realise, I replied twice to this thread :D haha... doh!

Well Martin, I hope you feel doubly welcome!

and 198! what was it, the SRI? I am shocked I didn't realise they could put out that much juice!

I am sure with a bit of investment, TLC and a few mods you could probably get close to that :p

The Corsa is 150Ps and 155-ft-lbs as standard, "warm hatch" Corsa is an unfair comparison (or almost 200Hp tuned) to the stock "family car" 1.6 deisel Focus in terms of performance - i bet the MPG is better though

you really need to compare like-for-like (eg an SRI to an ST, vxr to an RS )

There was a 240Hp Focus tdci 1.6 but it had a lot of workdone / money spent on it and a more realistic figure for a 1.6 TDCI is about 140-150Hp (but a lot more torque) - without spending a fortune tuning it

There is a lad nearby with a Nurumbing? edition, i don't race on the roads but i just happened to be going the same way and i was in a little bit of a hurry, the Corsa goes like lightning off the line but it seems to run out of puff in the midrange/ seems to have similar acceleration/ compared to my (only slightly modified :) ) Mondeo
