No, only standard on Zetec S and Titanium X. Option as part of appearance pack on Zetec and Titanium.

Might be worth seeing if the dealer can apply this:

Then having it now is a no brainer imo.

I think they are trying to be more like google.

 

Give you platforms for free or low cost and try and make up for it by selling advertising and services.




#508459 Is My Clutch Going

Posted by alexp999 on Yesterday, 08:45 AM

Few things to test for clutch slip.

 

5th gear at 30mph, if the clutch is slipping the revs will increase without the car increasing speed at the same rate.

 

Park somewhere and apply the handbrake on full, then try rocking the car on the bite point as if you were going to pull away, same thing will happen if the clutch slips, revs increase when they shouldn't.

 

You can also try a hill start, but you need to make sure you are not going to be stranded if the clutch is slipping too much.

 

If you are stationary and revs are high, I wouldn't suspect clutch though. I'd be thinking something else, like idle control valve, etc...

They are optional on all Focus at the moment.

You can get kits to add them to the small grills each side of the main grill.

That's the thing, you know everyone's car, but not their face...

Was a good day, back at home now with after sun on my burnt face... Again!

Good to meet some of you, not particularly outgoing myself, so sorry if I didn't come over and say hi.

Now I know I definitely need the ST I'm waiting for, lol. Damn clutch overheated on my ecorattle during the queue in.

Oh and I think the actual on the day event organisers are the same as before, it is a contracted event management company, which is good as I was worried the new owners would screw it up. Could have done with a bit more info leading up though...

This is what must be 6 months of not washing my car looks like (taken this morning), although the colour is very forgiving, lol:

#507739 Windows 10 Free Upgrade ??

From what I have read, the recommend way of clean installing, is to upgrade first then activate.

 

Then you can clean install and activate without a key as the activation servers will have remembered your PC's "signature".

I think midday was being banded about?

Posted by alexp999 on 31 July 2015 - 01:35 PM

I need one of these Focus STs in my life, will be my first ST too.

 

Ford Fair is going to be a double edged sword, get to see many examples of what I am waiting for, but have to go home without them :(

 

I apologise in advance Clive, if I happen to just stand and stare endlessly at your car, haha!

Ah I see, what's the spec, Deep Impact Blue ST3 like Clive's?

 

I'd have been mighty miffed to think you had bought one and got it before mine turns up :P




#507477 Amazon Signs Clarkson, Hammond & May With Andy Wilman

Posted by alexp999 on 30 July 2015 - 04:39 PM

If I had to choose between Netflix and Amazon, I prefer Amazon.

 

I don't want or need Netflix, but if I have to pay for Prime to watch it, at least I get free one day delivery too. Still I don't order with paid delivery enough from Amazon to warrant it.

 

I'm sure they will bring out a DVD, or have offers and deals with other networks anyway.

 

Prime is only available in a handful of countries, so they need to sort something out...
