#446920 Focus Mk2.5 Dead. Engine Won't Start

they should provide you with a recipt for the goods/work carried out. plus look at the EGR to see if its new or if a plate has been added to blank it off. IF you have been ripped off then ask for a refund or go to the small claims court and gets your hard earned cash back.

 

this guide will help you in identifying the parts:

Getting better and better.

with regards to the lights, how is the beam pattern as I had a similar set and the lights were so off the beam was pointing at everyone's roofs, I tried adjusting it but didn't get very far. Someone else on here had a similar issue and managed to adjusted them to the correct level.

#438843 Paint Spraying Or Powder Coating For Alloy Refurb?

Posted by salsheikh on 22 December 2014 - 08:21 PM

thanks for the advice Yunii but its too far to travel to get it done - it would be a double trip, once to drop off and once to collect. I'll ask a local painter for a price.

 

Thanks for the input Lenny, funnily enough ive just seen wheeler dealers where they powder coated some wheels for an aston martin db7 - chrome black. looked ace but it was £65 per wheel - ouch!

 

I've got some Jade R alloys for the Focus....finally. Wanted some Rota GTR's but they are too expensive.




#438823 Paint Spraying Or Powder Coating For Alloy Refurb?

Posted by salsheikh on 22 December 2014 - 07:44 PM

Guys,



what is the recommendation with regards to wheel refurbishment?



Is it better to get it spray painted or powder coated?

What sort of price should I be paying?



Any recommended companies around Nuneaton/Coventry area?



Thanks

Little off-topic, but HIDs are legal? Does this apply EU-wide? What are the conditions of using them? No more washers/auto-leveling? :o


When i contacted the DVLA they said that you dont need wadhers or levellers if they have been retro fitted. If they came factory fitted then you do. Happy Days.


#438499 England Flag Illegal?

Posted by salsheikh on 21 December 2014 - 06:49 PM

Being Muslim and living in this country (born in the UK) I have no issues to it at all and display it when England are playing footy - even though we sadly have nothing to cheer about.

 

I think its wrong to be fined for displaying it unless it is used for wrong purposes (propaganda/racism etc).




#438497 What Size Disklok?

Posted by salsheikh on 21 December 2014 - 06:45 PM

only just seen this and I have a small one on my Focus 2.5 so this should work well on your Fiesta. I keep mine in the bag when not in use.
