#374056 Best Dash Cam For Mk2 Focus????

Just to let you know that a number of our insurance schemes offer discounts for certain in-car cameras.

Would help if you list them Dan!

having wheels tracked/aligned properly will make a massive difference on how a car behaves.

#373302 Supercharger Or Turbo?

i'd stick to just a nice looking car for now until your insurance comes down. then get an st170 (mk1) or an ST (mk2/2.5) and enjoy it properly.

its a very worthwhile mod to do. why the fords didnt come like this as standard is purely down to cost saving measures - IMO

Looking good Steven. What colour are the bonnet vents going to be?

Are you fitting a complete RS interior then? Guys on the ST forum say the ST seats are more comfortable than the RS ones!

#358363 Quick Advice Needed

if everything fitted on the front end went straight on then swap it back to the original parts, if work was required then it might not be a straight forward swap!


good luck with the sale mate.

#358196 Radio And Lights Flickering On And Off?

Posted by salsheikh on 29 April 2014 - 12:45 PM

thats an odd one Mike. i'd check the wiring at the back of the stereo to see if anything is loose but as its your lights too i'm not sure. might be worthwhile visitng an auto electrician?
