Hi joining the forum, about to go for a black 59 black focus to get a bigger car than my panda, also on detailing world so coming back to a black car will take more polishing. Going for a 1.6 petrol, price is good from jennings and 2 year warranty. Looking forward to having a great handling car.

welcome to the forum Martyn,
Some drl fog light surrounds would be a nice addition to your black focus and perhaps a titanium spec lower grill which has the chrome lip.
If looking for guides see my profile page,
The 1.6 petrol is a good engine but its the only one that you cant remap or tune in any way.
However if tuning isint your interest then its 100%

Never thought about a remap. Nearly went for diesel nearly went for silver....

Usual upgrades for the car, upgraded bulbs, finalising the deal, they never give mats do they.....poor boys plus hd wax. Tohitch for the bike...always believe in 6 monthly oil changes.

Well carless now. The car had a cracked sump, an oil leak from the crankshaft, dodgy work before i got it. Luckily got my money back well most of it. Now deciding whether to get another 2.5 or get a mk 3. Had a mk 3 the other day, but a part of me prefered the drive of the mk 2.5.

Crikey not a great start but you got money back that's the main thing. How much did you get back and lose in the end?
