#345483 Headlights

Posted by Gabbo_21 on 21 March 2014 - 12:31 PM

Been down to my local Ford dealership and stood my ground. New headlight due later to day, on consumer law as it is not fit for purchase for a reasonable length of time and put to Ford as a manufacturing fault.

#303400 Lumpy On Acceleration

Posted by Gabbo_21 on 08 November 2013 - 11:48 AM

Hope to have a good look over weekend.
As I said previously only does it under 2k rpm and when you put your foot down.

This morning engine management light came on so hoping for a error code or 2 now. Shame by bluetooth obd unit paired to my phone doesnt read it at wall.

Want to sort it so I cant get my focus back for the misses

Got given a set of wind deflectors from a mate who has an estate as the wrong set turned up for him and company sent new set but never collected old. So as I'm off today they were fitted this morning and also did a bit of de-badging to the rear.

It was good fun, just not practical for family life :(
On the plus side I have all the uprated parts in the garage after removing from the old Zetec S so could be fitted to the Focus.

#298965 My Focus Sport

Posted by Gabbo_21 on 23 October 2013 - 05:29 PM

Following the sale of my mk6.5 Fiesta Zetec S TDCI which ended up running 155bhp from the stock 90, I brought a 2011 Focus Sport TDCI.
The old Fiesta
The new Focus
As it the family car the bit of work was the installation of isofix for my daughters car seat.
Second item to change was the spare wheel in the boot.  The Focus was supplied with a full size spare, but the eats in the boot space which I need for buggies etc... as wel as my scout equipment (local Scout leader). So sourced a brand new space saver from a focus to be scrapped at work and reclaimed my boot space. Just in the process of trying to get a new carpet for boot in exchange for my carpet and the foam which sat around the wheel.
And today saw the installation of a Pippercross cone to replace the standard paper filter. 
With further plans ahead which includes:
Replace the worn silver dash parts
Rear window tints
Clear lense fog - Done
Colour code bonnet lip - Done
ST spoiler - Done
Black headlights - Done
Black gloss grills

Refit old Fiesta tuning parts - after warranty period ends
Zetec S kit - if money ever allows it
