Sold My Focus And I've Gone German

16 March 2014 - 11:35 AM

What have I done. I sold my low mileage 11 plate Focus Sport yesterday morning and went and bought a 320i M Sport Coupe in the afternoon.  

 

I'm now having second thoughts because of the possible running costs, run flat tyres etc. You don't get a spare or even a jack and wheel brace. Tyres are £250 each and my insurance has nearly doubled.

 

Am I mad or what?

 

Its a 2008 on a 57 plate but with only 37k miles on the clock. Full Leather Auto/Semi Auto etc


How Embarrassing. Focus Rolled Into A Transit

02 March 2014 - 05:42 PM

How embarrassing to hear your registration number called out in B&Q's saying its rolled into another vehicle.

 

Got to the car to find it in the back of a Transit with the handbrake still on. All I can think was as the brakes had cooled down while we were in the store they contracted enough to allow the car to roll.

 

My front bumper was pushed in where it hit the tow bar on the van but I was able to pop it back out by hand. No noticeable damage to my Focus but one of the rear doors on the van was pushed in.

 

Who would of thought a Transit would come off worse?


Tasha's Christmas Video

02 December 2013 - 09:02 AM

I thought I would share my 16 year olds Christmas video to get everyone into the seasonal spirit. This was recorded on Saturday by Katy Jackson of the band The Hype Theory at the AT Music Group studios near Chelmsford.

Tash had a stinking cold at the time but it didn't come out too bad:



Hope you like it.

Led Side Light Bulb Replacement Pain

30 November 2013 - 12:16 PM

Well I thought I should change the side light bulbs to LED's whilst I was upgrading the dipped beam bulbs to Osram nightbreaker Plus's. I just cannot get the things out. There is no movement when tugging on the tongue/holder thing. I have tried twisting it as well but not too much as I don't want it to snap off.

 

These have never been out an I have had this Mk2.5 since new. Any tips on how to remove these bulbs without breaking the tongue?

 

Cheers guys.
