New Car Ordered, Goodbye Focus... Hello New Mk3.5 Focus!

10 September 2014 - 01:24 PM

Just come back from the dealer, having ordered a 1.5 Ecoboost Zetec S with lots of goodies. :D
 
Estimated build date is 10th Oct, with ETA 9th Nov, although dealer has said it is likely to take longer than that due to the number of options I have added, so we'll see.
 
Can't wait, this will be my first new factory ordered car  :driving:

Tom Raider Fans, Please Help Stop Rise Of The Tomb Raider Being An Xbox Exclusive

12 August 2014 - 04:10 PM

As some of you may know, it has been announced that the next major title in the Tomb Raider franchise, Rise of the Tomb Raider is going to be an Xbox Exclusive.

 

Seems like a middle finger up to all the fans if you ask me, it will not make me buy an XB1, if anything it puts me off it further.

 

Stella (tombraiders.net), has started a petition, if you have ever played TR or just don't want to see it die by being gobbled up by M$, please sign the petition below calling for it to be made multi-plat.

 

I would hope with enough support, it will at least only be a timed exclusive....

Can You Name That (Ford) Engine?

Great bit of quick fun, I did better than I thought :D

 

I scored 9 out of 11 on the Ford Engine Quiz. Can you beat that? http://social.ford.c...at-ford-engine/


Clean, Shiny & Mini Photoshoot

19 April 2014 - 04:23 PM

Finally got round to giving my car a proper clean, touched up a stonechip on the bonnet last weekend and gave the inside a good going over with some Megs Interior Detailer. This weekend I treated it to a wash, wax, wheel seal and trim tart up, then while drying/de-rusting the brakes I pulled up and took some pictures (before it rains tomorrow). This is the first time the car has been clean since fitting the new wheels, I have an excuse though, it's been in and out of Ford about 4 times with a water ingress related problem (which is hopefully all sorted), so I didn't want to wash it, plus having something wrong with the car always make me loose all motivation to titivate, lol.

 

Anywhoo, here are the pics :)

2015 Focus Facelift (Mk 3.5) Unveiled

23 February 2014 - 11:59 PM

Ford have officially unveiled the 2015 facelifted Focus:

Will add pics to this post when I'm at my PC but you can find them at the link above.

Still don't think it suits the Focus as well as the Mondeo and I can't help but still not like the cut and shut look of facelifts. Still it looks better than I feared that aston-esque look could have gone, though I can't help but feel it has gone almost a little generic looking, like the 308 or Cee'd

 

EDIT:

 

Lot's of pics here, and info about new tech/features, etc:
