Clive if you do this challenge you'll have to arrest yourself


By the same logic, couldn't he go and arrest (or report) anyone who does this challenge? Lol.

The Zetec S 2.0 TDCi is 23k, so the ST TDCi will be at least 24k, still undercutting the GTD though.


#386692 18 Inch Alloys On Standard Focus Mk 2.5 Help

Not sure about mk2.5 but on the mk3 you need steering rack limiters for 18".

I would imagine it is the same.

Got a feelingly that it might be a little one sided, not a great ratio of girls to guys on here, lol.

 

Also the boot on my Focus MK3, is only a "cramped 316 litres" and known for being one of the smallest boots in its class :(

I resent that insinuation! I did more than that, I also typed in

 

58008618

32008

5317009

 

There is also another word that I used to type but that even in its calculator format is not forum appropriate.

 

07734

Vista has a habit of "eating" (read corrupting) itself.

 

I have used it, far more than I wish I had to. Upgraded my Gran's computer to Win 7 it was like breathing a fresh lease of life back in to it and there hasn't been half as many problems.

 

Still the usual Winblows stuff but it can't be infallible.

 

I do like a lot about Win 8.1, enough to keep me using it, but I'm really looking forward to getting the start menu back.

It will be like this, possibly even before Win 9 as an update to 8.1:

Wouldn't be half as good either, many companies scrimp on the less known bits like PSUs and cooling, while they are actually the most important.

It isn't that difficult to assemble a PC imo, if you are careful patient and follow online guides or ask for help. Software is far more difficult to problem solve.


#385083 2015 Focus Facelift (Mk 3.5) Unveiled

Posted by alexp999 on 11 July 2014 - 09:58 PM

Saw these on my YouTube feed earlier.

I wondered what the footage from the b roll I posted would be used for.

Nice bit of cheesy acting in there, lol.

Didn't realise the GPU was an over clocked one, I only allowed 450 for it and was only adding up the main tower.

Very colourful keyb and mouse. I hardly seem to touch mine anymore, keep playing with a 360 controller through my TV, lol.

Now give it 6 months and it will all be old tech, lol. Nah it will last you a while though, everything seems to be about efficiency rather than performance now and the consoles haven't leap frogged the PCs to provide much incentive for technical innovation...

No MK3 was an "All-new" model.

 

You could swap certain stuff from MK3.5 on to a MK3, but not on to a MK2 as it is a different platform.

 

That's why we use the MK system, the main digit is the platform, the .5 indicates a facelift of said platform.

Motherboard, CPU and GPU would be at least £800 on their own...

I mainly use scan now, been really pleased with them over the years.

 

Much better when they switched to DPD too, really handy having a 1 hour time slot to know when your goods are coming.
