Actually works out cheaper than me loaning mine out to anyone in the uk now lol the price is dropping all the time with these units,
Always happy to help mate and i hope the issue with cruise control doesn't destroy your love for the motor. Hopfully it gets fixed soon.

Enjoy them while they're young mate before they start answering back and all that s**t like "I need an iPad/iPhone/next expensive gadget Daddy cos everyone has one except me and I feel deprived" 

That sounds like now :lol:
5 year old daughter is hard as nails, trys to reason with me and whats worse is i find myself justifying myself with her before catching myself on lol
She is getting a wifi teddy bear from santa among other things :rolleyes: and it dispayed an iPhone on the box
Because you send the bear emails and he speaks the email when you press his hand,
She now wants the iphone too lmao
One way ive found to keep them off my phone is by saying "its 5pm and the app store is closed from 04:30"

Also what benefit would i gain from blanking the egr valve. thanks for your replies.

No prob mate,
Im a long term member i enjoy the forum and creating guides see my profile page by clicking on my avatar picture 30 guides to date,

The egr valve recirculates up to 20% of exhaust gases back in to the induction chamber where it is sucked in to the cumbustion chamber,
This brings excess carbon in to your engine excessive oil contamination leeding to carbon build up in the oil creating restriction of oil to the turbo,

By blanking the egr you prevent waste gas Recirculation,
The engine will only suck in clean fresh air,
The flow of exhaust gases increases by up to 20% across the rev range
As result your turbo spool time is also reduced
Thus making your car more efficient on fuel,
Oil stays cleaner with a reduction in contamination
Your dpf (if fitted) will be cleaner due to increased exhaust flow

See more positive feedback on my guide:
http://www.fordowner...-16tdci-engine/

My focus is a 1.6TDCi DV6 Euro 6 emissions
Ive blanked egr valve, gutted dpf chamber, remapped fom 90-125bhp
Text book turbo failure on the 1.6TDCi is around 80-100,000 miles
Im now at 150,000 on my stock turbo and its mapped yo!!
Thanks to EGR blanking saving me a turbo


#429751 Rs Led Rear Lights In Prefacelift Focus

Posted by Lenny on 19 November 2014 - 07:20 PM

I actually thought about using spades but then that involves cutting the wires. I used scotchloks for my 12v sockets, wrapped in electrical tape as well just to make sure. I'll be doing this with the lights too.
Recaros would be lovely, id love some for my car, I find the seats a bit uncomfortable at times. As if they don't offer support down the sides.
I'll tackle the lights this weekend and post a few pics of my steps so anyone interested in doing the same has a reference at least.

Looking forward to seeing these fitted mate,
There well worth the effort

Just in case you're interested in ever fitting the oval radio, this is a link to the guide I posted after doing the upgrade myself.
Looks far better than the standard Mk2 6000CD radio.

Excellent PDF guide mate,
Im not sure about the cost of part: 1547964
But ive got those parts removed from my 2010 if its cheaper to send me 7 pounds via PayPal to cover shipping from Ireland to the Uk then ill ship them via tracked mail

#428541 Happy Birthday Vickiw!!

Posted by Lenny on 15 November 2014 - 07:15 AM

I'm sure Vicki is very happy you posted up her age.
You should have said 21 for bonus points.

:lol: i had her when she was that age too :)
Funniest part was yesterday in the card shop, i brought the kids with me to pick a card and gift,
Got in to the card shop and they start screaming at me "mammys 33 dad get a card that says 33"
I spotted one with 60 on it but refrained temptation
Funny when you think about it because the kids are 5 & 7 all there birthday cards come with an age printed on them and a badge :lol: they instantly assumed all birthday cards had names attached.

My youngest also says "i hope the baby in mammys tummy is a Chinese baby"
I asked why
She replied "because then we would get to eat Chinese food all the time and i love Chinese food "
:lol:

In maternity ward on Thursday waiting to be seen and she says " dad does your phone have a camera for taking selfies?"
I was like WTF your 5
"mams phone has a camera on the front and mam says its for taking selfies"
:lol:

And finally
"when mammy has the baby, will the hospital tell you if its a boy or a girl so we know what name to call it and c9lour clothes to buy"
:lol:

Here they are in forest last week watching a family of ducks in the stream
Should have brought a shot gun wouldn't have had to go Chinese lol

#428482 Happy Birthday Vickiw!!

Posted by Lenny on 14 November 2014 - 09:03 PM

Happy birthday!  What did you get her Lenny? :P

To be honest?

A card that says "happy anniversary " instead of "happy birthday "

And three battery powerd led wax candles that flicker,
The flame shaped card is suspended between two magnets and dances around like a real flame,
Funniest part was when she almost tried to blow them out lmao
Shes forever lighting candles and i fear the kids would be messing with them and get hurt or burn the house down,
These simulate really well
