#353610 Evans Halshaw Guarantee :(

There will be a clause in the contract about terminating/ending/cancelling it.


It has to be in there just to cover the 14 day cooling off period if nothing else.


It won't be easy to find, buried in a wall of text no doubt.

Do you need the clear lens, or the black plastic surround?


You can find part numbers for the black surround in this guide:

All these new Fiesta STs! I keep getting so tempted to trade my Focus in, only had it just over a year - still so much I would miss about the Focus though.


Enjoy all of your new pocket rockets, I have seen more around my way which doesn't help either, lol.

Does look like the lambo was going far too fast though.

I always take my car out of gear, sometimes before I have completely stopped, lol. Saves wear on the release bearings.

Don't always apply the handbrake tho and will use foot brake, especially if I'm the back of the queue.

Must be nice getting to drive a manual again, I don't think I could ever own an auto personally.

Looks well equipped considering it says its an edge model too.

Is the repair work much to worry about?

As Boris would say, "Very nice".


I wonder how long you will keep the wheels though....


And I assume this is the 1.8TDCi proper Ford diesel that was used in the Focus and Stoney raves about :P

New shoes are fitted!


I'll take some better pictures after I have cleaned it, you'll have to excuse the gold brake discs too, it has only been sat still overnight. :rolleyes:

#339121 Air Con Default "on" ?

Posted by alexp999 on 05 March 2014 - 05:01 PM

It should only come on if you turned it on (or left it on).


Are you saying even if you turn it off, it is on when you next start the car?


Where do you have the blowers aiming at? If it is the windscreen this automatically turns the A/C on in some cars, to help demist.

#338319 Facelifted New Focus 2014 / 1.5L Ecoboost / Sinc2- What Do You Think?

#335851 2015 Focus Facelift (Mk 3.5) Unveiled

Posted by alexp999 on 24 February 2014 - 08:17 PM

The big touchscreen might be interesting hopefully they have sorted out the issues the Americans have been having with my Ford touch. I can't help but feel the interior has gone a bit dull though. When the Focus Mk3 launched it looked really different, interior included, there is a lot of dull black plastic now, like in a golf or something. :(

I look forward to seeing the zetec s trim it really needs sporting up a bit IMO. Feels like ford has given in to making a safer more generic design.

Also surprised to see the 2L diesel as only a 150PS, would have thought they would just stick to the 163PS. Unless they are dropping the PSA engine, but that doesn't seem plausible for a refresh.

180PS from a 1.5L petrol should be interesting too.

Don't get me wrong though, I'm not trying to poopoo everything it just feels like 2 steps forward one step back.

Looks a bit better in this shot, still think it has a bit of the Kia Cee'd about it though....
