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:

Haha very good Karl. Hope the cake isn't vauxhall flavoured, it will taste like... (Insert your own word here)

Like a Lemon Snow cone

That's not really very fitting though. Should it not be a Vauxhall with the bonnet up??

#389517 Foot Well Lights Help!!

Posted by Lenny on 24 July 2014 - 12:26 PM

No problem Lenny.
When all arrives I will keep you posted.
I think I will had the cup holder LEDs as well but I will try the bird bath mod and the footwell's first.
I think the ignition ring maybe take a week or 2 to arrive. So just have to sit about and wait lol!
Great job on your mods Lenny very tidy mate.

Thanks mate,
The rear footwell pads are coming from Housten Texas aswell if there the same supplier as mine,
Defo same part anyways,
If following the cup holder illumination guide id just fit the led to the front of the cup holder its bright enough to illuminate the whole thing,
Its too bright with three strips fitted,

#389305 Interior Light.....

Posted by Lenny on 23 July 2014 - 08:59 PM

I did but to be honest for me there is no point as the back is never used for passengers and the light just helps with bags etc.   At night the whole car is lit up when the door is opened so it's good enough.    It's just a Transit interior light from Ebay and wired through to the front.   


looks nice and factory fitted mate well done.

Thanks Lenny, it's gotta be worth a go! :)
Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

somebody's gotta try it for the team :) if your hell bent on doing it, id say: get yourself a haynes manual as it will show how to remove panels to get out the roof lining, theres also a member on here called Ben whom removed his roof lining before heres a link to his thread:
http://www.fordowner...7-zetec-s-tdci/

I took the easy way with the rear light but it's effective enough!

Looks good mate,
Have you considerd fitting some rear footwell lighting pods fitted under the seats?

Posted by Lenny on 23 July 2014 - 05:13 PM

Thanks Lenny. However, sorry, I thought you meant you'd installed one in a Fiesta. Yours looks good though :)
Sent from my iPad using Ford OC

sorry mate,
The unit is flush fit to the carpet though,
It doesnt go in to the roof,
Has a plastic lip surround to fill space around the light,
So if you got a surround from a mk2.5 08-11 focus in the breakers you may be able to retro fit.
