#403261 Morning All

Posted by Lenny on 30 August 2014 - 10:11 AM

I recently passed my driving test at the ripe old age of 25. I used to think is never really needed it when I was younger which I now realise was ridiculous. Anyway, I learned to drive in a fiesta and loved it, my girlfriend has a Ka and loved that so it seemed logical to stick with Ford so we just bought a Focus, which I think going by the descriptions I've seen is a mk 2.5 (?). It's an 08 plate anyway. First time on any car forums so, hello!

What you need to do is to place the order with Kevin, but do not pay. When given an opportunity to do so, pass a message to the seller through
the order page, and advise you are looking to reclaim Discount Code "FOC25D" - mention you are a member of this forum and the discount code

Enjoy :)

#402959 Fake Bosch Aerotwin Wipers

Posted by Lenny on 29 August 2014 - 10:32 AM

Nah there genuine mate,
I recently bought Bosch Aero blades from micksgarage.com
Bosh aero design now has a bulky middle connector which cators for retro hook style blade and the new aero bar style, does make them very bulky but thats the way they are now,
Perhaps there is patient on the original style so bosch had to restyle or pay fees



See in this image below the angry bird,
You can see the wiper arm is raised due to the more bulky joint block on the blade.

#402849 Guide: Fitting Ford Projector Puddle Lights Mk2 & Mk2.5 Focus 05-12 Front...

Posted by Lenny on 28 August 2014 - 10:14 PM

They do look good but myself personally I think I'd prefer the other type that harwires in. But saying that wireless is still very handy.

+1 all considered
I hadnt thought of battery change etc.
I think when there so close to the power supply better to take the time to wire them in.
Each to there own though,
Maybe good for boot compartment or hidden inside bumper or grill,
Range of possibilities being wireless,
Voy racers could even stick em on the peak of the cap facing up towards the face of it proudly displaying the vauxhall logo :)

Just silly things, new led bulbs for the front, zetec s lower and St upper grill, new wheel studs :) plus she going into the body shop on Monday for a little touch up haha I really need a cheaper hobby :(

very nice shopping basket full there mate,  

Dont we all. I just had my timing belt done yesterday just out of fear, not necessity lol £170 down the tubes. After the springs itll be Cree bulbs for rear and possibly some darker tint on the windows as i carry lots if musical gear ie guitars/amps. The factory tint just isnt dark enough. Possible tinted sunstrip too like i had on my mk7 fiesta.

shouldn't be much problem making the windows darker as the factory tint is inside the glass,
They can easily apply film to the inside of the windows perhaps 20% tint giving you overall 50% dark.
I like the sunstrip idea too.

I'm not keen on the Vectra, however I really like the facelifted Insignia! Much nicer than the current Mondeo, which is a good car but the replacement is long overdue.
