Got my dealer to look at the specs the Aussie Focus will get. No mention of a Rear View Camera :(

Does get the 9-Speakers, Sony Audio, 5" Color Display ETC though!

Supposedly the Sat Nav is coming to Australia with a Sony Audio setup. So as our cars come from Germany, I'd expect you guys should see this soon too!!!

how are you cleaning your car?
there are ways to clean it where you wont get swirls, ive got none on mine and have cleaned it every day this last month (been off work)

the weekend clean is:
snowfoam
rinse
2 bucket method wash (microfibre mitt)
g101 car to remove tar, bugs,stains (microfibre cloth)
rinse
2 bucket method again(mitt)
dry (2X microfibre cloths)
polish (on with polish pad, off with microfibre)
wax(on with dodo juice foam aplicator, off with microfibre)

i know it sounds alot, the first few times it was 4-5 hours, but since wax has built up a good layer it takes about 2 hours to do. then just a daily powerwash or rinse with hose. main thing is dont use a brush, sponge or those drying blades, they just scratch your car to buggery


Will give this ago tonight and post up the results. Inevitably though, where I am in Australia it's !Removed! dry, so any attempt to clean my car results in fine dust settling on it, which results in swirls. It's nothing major, and only really noticeable until you're close. That or I'm just plain stupid (land of convicts, of corse I am!). Hopefully the Focus won't end up like this HEHE :)

Thank you so much for your help cuke! Sat in a base model and pumped up the stereo today, and found the Sony unit to be much better in terms of sound clarity. And in terms of looks, it kills the Ford unit. SYNC / MyFord Touch doesn't really interest me all that much, I have to deal with horrid Microsoft computers at work all day so keeping as much of their garbage out of my car is my plan!

Sony Premium Audio it is. Thanks again fella.

About to order a new Ford Focus Titanium (equivalent to your Titanium X) and ditching the white. Had Diamond White on my MK6 Fiesta and now Frozen White on my MK7. Looks superb when clean, and doesn't show the dirt and swirls until your close, but when you are you can definitely see them. Plus I find the white looses its appeal in the sun (maybe not a problem for your guys as much as it is in Australia) but it looks, I dunno, plain jane, in the sun. Will try Moondust Silver this time.

But white has served me very well. Just hope silver concealed swirls better. Get the white though, looks sensational on the Fiesta!
