hi everyone , and hi michelle, you will be pleased to know i am thinking against the mountune kit, you put me off the other day when you asked how long am i going to keep it and to be truthful maximum will be two years as i will have finished my apprenticeship by then and will hopefully have a few yrs ncb, that means i will be wanting a focus st or something, but things may change lol If i bought it and only kept it a year and a half maybe 2 years it will make the kit seem a waste of money as it wont really gain me anything when i resell/trade in .

Good afternoon Rob,

That'll please Michelle anyway........her's will still be unique! ;)

Seriously though, I know what you mean as I'm in two minds about the Mountune kit myself.

One of the reasons for me is financial as we're on short time at the moment but the other is the length of time I'll need to keep the car in order for it not to be a waste of money as you'll never get it back................

However, if they were to introduce a stage 2 tuning kit then...................................... B) B)

Ye if they could get the car upto corsa vxr performance then id be keeping it lol Just strap a turbo to it lol alot of work though, lowering compression and stuff, wont be easy, and keeping warranty intact. Im just going to see what they bring out for the car, still early days at the moment.

hi rob, dont bother with the focus ST mate, totally over rated car imo, i had one for two years and it only came alive once i got dreamscience installed, but then the car needed petrol everyday, cost me a fortune in tyres, tax, and petrol.

I love the sound of the 5 cylinder engine, and the little pops and bangs they seem to produce, theres a few companys that take them upto about 300bhp, that must set them alive, will cost the earth to run though like you say, but your only young once lol my mind will probably change to something else by the time im 21, or if they bring out something to make this car seriously fast then i will keep it, turbo or supercharge it, if they wont make an st version then they need something to rival the clio 197 and vxr corsa, turbo'ing this little engine would be the answer to that.

I agree, supercharger is definitely the way forward for this motor
