Hello All,
 
Just bought myself a 2011 Ford Focus Titanium 5dr from the auction. It's a 3yr old ex motability car and hasn't been looked after particularly well so there are a few problems with it which I hope you guys might be able to help with :)
 
Best regards
 
Kal
 
 

does this mean it has no imobiliser? :lol:
Welcome to the forum :)

I was thinking of getting the diffuser from China. Would it be no good for me if I wanted to get a duplex exhaust then?
Sent from my C5303 using Ford OC mobile app

no mate,
The china version sticks to the curve line of the existing bumper like cladding, it doesn't bring the bumper any lower,

The duplex exhaust comes out from below the standard bumper,

The genuine zetecS diffuser also sticks to the existing standard bumper but its diffuser is functional and comes down below the standard bumper along with an apron which wraps around the sides, beefs up and lowers the bumper creating the surround below the standard bumper where the exhaust pipes can pertrude surrounded by the diffuser,

Anyways
Please post further discussion about the zetecS kit in this thread:

Keeps it better documented and categorised.

Nicely done Lenny. I think you could get away with a total decat now. If you use Souhans again, maybe they could check the emissions right there and then tell you if you would fail the next NCT. What do you think? Another 10bhp more with a decat? And the noise as well :P

trapped pigeon and chew chew noises lol if I do go decat I'd purchase the 1.6TDCi decat pipe that pumaspeed sell for the fiesta says gives 10bhp increase then check emissions,
If all was good then I'd completely gut the dpf chamber and fit it,
Although I think for the dpf chamber to seem completely legitimate there should be a sound baffle in it otherwise I could get caught out by the sound,
Overall though it's great comfort to know dpf removal and EGR blanking a euro5 engine has lower emissions than stock aswell as prolonged Turbo life.

Yeah i agree as well. They should be fitted as a standard as they look better than originals.
Has anyone done any other interior mods or are there any chrome surrounds for vents ect that can be done that look good?

yeah there's a guy whom builds custom laser cut parts from brushed stainless steel,
See my guide here: http://www.fordowner...032#entry145032

How often do you have your mot? Is it not every year?
Sent from my C5303 using Ford OC mobile app

when a car is 4 years old it gets first test,
If passed they give you a cert for 3 years,
This continues until the car is over ten years old then it must be tested every year.
Each test costs 55 Euro, retest cost 25 Euro

So with no internal dpf just empty chamber for astetic purposes, performance induction filter, 2.5" cat back duplex exhaust, blanked EGR, led fog lights and side lights, mirror tinted indicator bulbs, front and rear tinted windows, and remapped ecu,
The focus has passed its inspection 100% yo, 100%
the emissions lower limit is 1.500/M
Emissions high limit is 2.500/M

My focus is coming in at 1.100/m :)
Does this mean I can decat completely?

Feeling pretty epic yo, next inspection is in July 2017 :lol:
