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....

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?
