In Topic: Mk3.5 Focus St

17 July 2014 - 03:56 PM

A basic GTD starts at £25,765, if you consider that a basic GTI is £26,330 and ST-1 £22,295, I would have thought the most basic diesel ST would be positioned around the £22k mark...

Maybe that's just wishful thinking though!

In Topic: Mk3 Focus Ecoboost Titanium Or Ecoboost Zetec S (T 125)

Now that you've bought the Titanium, you could purchase the body kit separately and fit it yourself! I put the ZS body kit on my Zetec, all the genuine ford parts came off eBay and most were already black. In all, a couple hundred quid and £18 admin fee on my insurance to declare it... well worth it!

In Topic: Focus Mk3 (2011)

23,000 miles is fairly low for a 2011, mines just reached 50k! Make sure you do enough mileage to justify the diesel, if not it'll need a quick blast down the motorway every now and then to keep the DPF in check (plenty of stories of DPF's on the internet!)

Mines on it's third driver's side window motor, and I've noticed the passenger side becoming intermittent, not sure if there's a design flaw or if it's just coincidence.

Other than that, mine has proved to be a reliable, economical but fun car to drive and it's the car I've owned longest... I don't think you can go far wrong.

If you can find a good Titanium X in your budget, might as well go for it!

Obviously its not a new idea as the ST-TDCI was released in 2004 http://www.evo.co.uk...ord_mondeo.html
and recently other manufacturers are producing sporty diesels


Completely forgot about the ST-TDCI Mondeo! Those are still really smart cars :)

In Topic: Rain And Light Sensor ??

29 June 2014 - 10:18 PM

Not sure if the Fiesta is the same, but in the Focus that little sensor on the dash is a light sensor for the auto-dimming backlit dials, radio display etc... If you cover it over with something black, all the displays dim... maybe the Fiesta is the same?
