#411130 My Focus 1.6 Tdci Zetec (2010)

Posted by Lenny on 19 September 2014 - 05:40 AM

Focus is looking great Jamie,
I love the alloys and the colour coded fog surrounds worked out very well,
Looks alot tidier with the bonnet lip colour coded,

Zs front lip would look good but i agree spending on the escort is much more rewarding than the focus,

Mr Cadbury met Miss Rowntree on a Double Decker. It was After Eight. They got off at Quality Street. He asked her name. "Polo, I'm the one with the hole" she said with a Wispa. "I'm Marathon, the one with the nuts" he replied. He touched her Creme Eggs and slipped his hand into her Snickers. He fondled her Flap Jacks and she rubbed his Tic Tacs. It was a Fab moment as she screamed in Turkish Delight and he shot his chewy centre. But 3 days later his sherbert dib-dab started to itch.Turns out Miss Rowntree had been with Bertie Bassett and he's got Allsorts.

#410680 Winter Bulb Upgrade Focus Mk2.5 2008-2012 Model

Posted by Lenny on 17 September 2014 - 05:57 PM

Have you tried the Philips bulbs at all, Lenny? The Mk 2.5 is a whole new beat to me now, but the Philips bulbs had far more range than the Osrams in my Mk1.5.
Any idea how the compare in the 2.5? I've just fitted Philips into my last night. Can't wait to test them out tonight.
Adding to the side light bit as well. Silver rimmed lights in the black shroud doesn't look bad either. I'll take a photo of mine later for those interested in the look.
Nice thread, lenny. :)

Thanks Kye,
I've not tried Philips bulbs at all mate
Perhaps automobile bulbs is somthing that Philips are good at and I'm missing out:
Not trying to be smart with you mate please allow me to explain my experience with Philips as a company:

In the past I've had a Philips home stereo system which would turn itself up and down uncontrollably after six months of purchase,
Cost me 375euro/290GBP back in 2005

I also had a Philips DVD player laser broke within two years back in 2004,
Cost me 120euro/100GBP

As we all know Philips have there fingers in many pies,
In my opinion after personal experience with some of Philips products I'm under the impression there jack of all trades and master of few.

Osram on the other hand have been manufacturing bulbs for generations,
Its what Osram are known for and its what they invest all of the research and development in to,
Not spread across a range of technology.

So i swear by Osram till the death :lol:
If Osram were to start manufacturing a brand of oil or windscreen wipers i wouldn't purchase because its not there heritage.

Now im not saying all franchise company's are not reliable,
BOSCH are another company with fingers in many pies,
They manufacture a fantastic range of wiper blades and oil filters which i have found to be good quality,
But on the flip side:
Im now on my third Bosch dishwasher and second Bosch washing machine in seven years perhaps there's somthing in the water :lol:

Which brings me to summarise:
From your experience Philips manufacture great bulbs,

From my experience Philips manufacture low quality home audio visual equipment.

Perhaps bulbs really are there strong point,
But i prefer Osram because its all they do.

Bosch manufacturer great wiper blades and oil filters,
But from my experience there not so good with the home cleaning appliances.

Bottom line,
Philips bulbs could be better than Osram,
But ill never purchase another Philips branded product again perhaps I'm at a loss but I'm sold to Osram period.

If Philips were to create the next big thing ill be missing out big time for sure.

#410224 How did you find the Ford Owners Club?

Posted by Lenny on 16 September 2014 - 11:18 AM

Phil - just remind her that you are still interacting with real humans (albeit hidden behind a screen somewhere...well, I'm fairly sure most of you lot are real...except Lenny - pretty sure he's a ghost - Vicki must have murdered him looonnnngggg ago...)
...unlike Bubble gum popping sweetie farm drama or whatever it is

Im evidently alive :lol: pictured at the first ever FOC Ireland meet two weeks ago,



Not as active online in recent weeks due to being back at work and on medication for degenerate disc disease in my lower spine,
Ive not got much input in recent times,
Pending arrival of third baby due late October, any progress on the focus is on hold until early 2015

Spotted this Astra with body kit parked down town rolling proof that Vauxhall drivers know nothing about car styling since its got three JDM Japanese Car styling stickers on the back window

1. Shocker decal
2. JDM green/yellow wing
3. Japanese cartoon character known as "Domo Kun"
Possibly 4 since the crazy cookie monster is common choice on drift vehicles

All on a 1.4 Diesel seriously dude!!


#408515 Irish Meet August 2014

Posted by Lenny on 11 September 2014 - 11:42 AM

talking of mods, a nice cheap one I've found to be great is to change the standard air box cover for the Mk2 RS one along with the air scoop and snorkel helps the engine breathe nicely and with a K&N filter gives a lovely induction note :) looks nice and stock to if like me your not really into overly flashy engine bays :)
just need to find some silicone hose that will fit it.

Good find on the mk2 RS air box with side snorkel induction pipe,
I was looking for one of those myself :lol: i was thinking of having the lid hydro dipped in carbon then sticking on a mountune performance badge from ebay would look like a 400 pounds induction kit.
Straight swap on the mk2.5 1.6TDCi another modification that would go with this is a K&N57s which is a taller air box lid, bigger cyndrical filter and a top right side induction port aswell

I plan to fit a K&N57s at some point, but for now I've drilled some holes in the right face of the air box lid:

Looks like you guys had a great day and good weather as well. Some very arty photos there. Like those plaques that you got the guys Lenny. Hopefully next year you'll get a few more attending so could be the start of something big.

Thanks Phil,
I owe a big thanks to James at Admin on the forum for helping me out with getting the forum logo in the correct format,
And a huge thanks to the guys at connect pro merchandise for taking on such a small quantity order and processing it in time for the event.

I hope to see an increase in members attendance next year.

however i cant commit to providing a qualifying gift again next year.

I committed to providing them this year however the cost of manufacturing doubled from the initial quote on production,

On initial quote the failed to including:
Shipping fee,
Personalisation fee,
Handling fee,
And of course 23% VAT

I continued to follow through with the order as it marks the first ever FordOwnersClub meet in Ireland and in my opinion rewards those making the first steps to make the meet a success,

However i wont be repeating this exercise in future meets unless a few members want to get a kitty fund together in advance.

Cool. Link me to the Ebay one via pm so I can have a gawk. Custom fit is the way to go. Definitely can be available to help out via phone or pm if you need. Wiring amps are fairly easy. Once you have the wires running from the head unit, speakers/subwoofer and battery, it's a question of plug and play. It's very similar to the one you had that was built in the sub :)

PM sent mate cheers :) roll on December
