Focus Splitter - Modified

23 June 2015 - 12:52 PM

i purchased an RS Parts splitter and didnt like the way it held water on the lip if it rained or was washed. I then purchased another one (got it cheap) and decided to modify it...The Escort Cossie being my choice of inspiration....

After - lip is at an angle from front to the rear




so, what do you think?


I even thought of adding some lettering and was going to put the new Focus badge on (in black) but then decided against it.

Narrow Alloy Wheel Nuts

08 June 2015 - 10:31 AM



i went to put my refurbed wheels on and the alloy wheel nuts i currently use do not fit as they have a tapered washer type fitting.

The new wheels Jade R alloys have a narrow hole (approx 22mm) and now i need to get the correct replacement nuts.

Is there anywhere i can go to trial fit the nuts to ensure i get the right ones? Would Halfrauds stock any?

I now have to buy another set of locking nuts too....

Hi all


I have my FOC sticker but do not know where i should place it on the car - it has tints on all the rear windows and the hatch window already has a dirty diesel sticker on it so any ideas?

The front windscreen has a black sunstrip btw.

I understand that the sticker is an internal one....


so, come on show me yours  :P

Focus Tdi Tuning Settings

19 February 2015 - 01:57 PM

Hi all


a friend of mine purchased a tuning box off ebay and installed it in his car and it seems to work fine but he doesnt know what the settings are or what setting it is on.

He only received the fitting instructions.


I had a look online and couldnt find anything but I remember that a member on here fitted a TDI Tuning box to his Focus so was hoping someone could help out?
