Posted by alexp999 on 23 December 2014 - 08:36 AM

Ps4 is not completely free online gaming anymore.

Still the free games alone easily pay for the sub

I got it from:

 

Sheep -> Lamb -> Rack of Lamb -> Steering rack.

 

haha.

 

I did think if I got it correct, it wouldn't be the right way of working it out though, lol.

Its not so much the engine, but the clutch and brakes.

It says about taking it easy for the first 1000 miles in the handbook.

When I first got the car the brakes were terrible and I want to let the clutch bed in before I put too much torque through it. Plus if I pick up speed, I need the confidence in the brakes to slow down again, lol.

I'm getting about 35 mpg since doing only town driving this week.

Only got 250 miles on it, but already feels like it is starting to run in, might just be me getting used to it though.

Got a nice growl out of it on the way home. :D


#435568 100K Mile Service - Anything Extra Required?

Posted by alexp999 on 10 December 2014 - 11:28 AM

DV6 is 100% belt driven.

 

So it will need to be changed. You might be able to generate a service report on Ford Etis, to see what else needs doing.

Any of you other new Focus owners having trouble with the climate control power button sticking?

 

Mine stuck the other day but popped out again when I pushed it a bit. But this morning, I don't know if it was because it was much colder, it stayed stuck in and wouldn't come out.

 

Haven't gone back out to the car yet to see if it will release after having warmed up.

How are you enjoying your car Alex? How is it compared to the 2.0td and whats ya mpg like? 

 

Loving it so far and not even taken it over 3.5k revs yet, lol.

 

Less grunt than the 2.0 TDCi, but much more flexible and just as quick, if not quicker as you can carry more speed into corners as it has a much lighter nose.

 

Ride is stiffer being Zetec S sport suspension, but I think it is just right. I wouldn't want it any harder, but it gives you that extra bit of body control and confidence.

 

Oh and for anyone interested here is a pic (edited to bring the cars closer) of my Mum's midnight sky Focus and the mangetic metallic, to compare. :)

#434060 What To Check For When Taking Delivery Of A New Car

Posted by alexp999 on 04 December 2014 - 01:02 PM

Dealer taxes the car, but it should be free in the first year.

 

I think it is all part of the first registration with the DVLA.

 

The day after I picked mine up it was showing on the DVLA website, so I could see it was "taxed"/registered.
