#480382 New Car Ordered :) And I'm Still Alive !

Posted by Preee on 27 April 2015 - 09:21 PM

Hi Brig

Firstly congrats on the little ones.


Wow nice Mondy mate looks great spec, sorry to hear about the damage, hope you get it sorted quicky.


Hopefully work will come your way soon mate.


Father inlaw passed away, work has been very touch and go, long hours covering people and redundancies, health not been so good, but i'm ok now. Also been doing a hell of a lot of decorating and house Mods.


Moving up a level in work, in two weeks when i get back from holiday after next week, more to the side of Product capacity , planning, chasing , and more on the health and safety side and away from direct supervision of the guys and more to instructing and helping out the current supervisors to release pressure from them so they can focus more on their rolls. Not sure of the future in that position thought, higher you go the faster you fall !

#479921 New Car Ordered :) And I'm Still Alive !

Posted by Preee on 26 April 2015 - 04:02 PM

First of all, I apologise for my long absence.


On the plus side :wub:


Ordered my new Focus Titanium X .


Drivers assist pack

Appearance pack 2 18" 8 spoke

Sync 2 Navigation with camera as standard

Deep impact Blue

Heated Steering wheel.

and of course what ever else the Titanium X has as standard, very happy indeed (wife not so happy!).


I have been looking for one for a while but could not find what I wanted, so I tried the dealers, and it worked out better to take a new one with £2150 discount (finance settle up after two weeks), all options discounted to dealer price not retail and of course mine as trade in.

Of course a nice long battle, over price, in the end not to bad, and I told them all my extra's I had on the car were to be removed.

Also good news as for Cherished plate as that's now down to £80 removal from £105, but wife wants me to leave it off for 6 months, but I will transfer it directly onto it. :ph34r:

Only downside now is the wait of approx. three months, and the fact that "no" dash speaker anymore, so i will either have to leave my Dash pod off or cut the dash to fit it :angry:.

I will also have to get my Spoiler re-sprayed to Deep impact blue, and remove all my other bits.

hi and welcome to the forum

#347118 Ford Rs Black Alloys

Posted by Preee on 25 March 2014 - 11:18 AM

I agree but there again I don't want it to come across as a'chavvy' car and I think doing that may push it more that way!

 haha to make it look chavvy it would have to have a Vau*&^%$% Corsa attached to it :)

#341604 Facelift Focus - Mk3.5

Posted by Preee on 11 March 2014 - 07:52 PM

Would i buy one ? :D  yes , i like it.


Manufacturers are the same world wide , they need to keep interest in the cars so a face lift would have been on the cards from the word go. Yes they can and do make up grades and improvements.

I like the gadgets up grades they are planning , but im not keen on the new radio and dash , that does look like a step backwards , and have they dropped the Sony?


Since it's launch Europe have been left in the dark over the MFT screen and set up , although they are changing it slightly , i think they would have sold loads more if it had been a "world" car like they promised.


The main changes seem to be at the front end , it looks more like a Fiesta mk7.5 to me.

Looks great , i was going to ask about if you were going to fit a spoiler , but you answered at the end :)

#335834 2015 Focus Facelift (Mk 3.5) Unveiled

Posted by Preee on 24 February 2014 - 07:48 PM

I like it , looks a lot better style wise , and of course the new gadgets :) , the front end looks a little crisper but as Alex said does look a little safe , but add a ZS spoiler and some nice wheels and it will look totally different.

It will be interesting to see the 8" screen in Europe , but i have seen that they are dumping Microduff for another software base.

#334471 Focus 1.6T Mp200

Posted by Preee on 20 February 2014 - 05:30 PM

I don't know of anyone running the MP , but i would say the mpg is far from what you would get , mines only the 150 and i do short trips and i'm at 29.4 mpg.

I would imagine your gain in performance would only be at the higher rev range , so to get any where near 40 mpg you would have to drive at 2000 rev range and no higher.
