Hi everyone,

Put a deposit down on a Ford Focus today & am really looking forward to picking it up tomorrow. Was impressed by how well it drove, but then she does have pretty low mileage considering her age. It's a 1.6 LX I went for in the end, as that was as far as my budget could stretch from a reputable local garage.

Standard intro type stuff: I'm Sarah & I live in Leeds. Apologies in advance if I end up posting lots of questions in the Focus Club, really want to learn how to carry out basic maintenance myself.

Here she is, parked up on my drive with an excited child in the passenger seat (she's excited as she's never normally allowed in the front):

Here's the pic they used to advertise her (minus reg, of course)
