Back On Here With A New Focus

04 November 2015 - 01:23 PM

Well its been a while but im back and with a new car, well new for me.


Got a lovely mk3 focus in white the 1 litre ecoboost with 125 little ponys in a Titanium Navigator spec, 64 plate and 13000 miles on the clock


Now i used to play around with the old eml and software on the old MK2.5s and seen the Foccus software for the newer focus whats the best free mods that can be done with this? bare in mind i have global closing tyre delflation system etc.

Love the car but im very tempted to get the bluefin remap :) can people recommend it? what other little bits have people done?

Mk3 1.0 Ecoboost Or 1.6Tdci

Morning Guys,


Been a long time from when i was on here last...
I currently have a year old ford bmax 1.0 ecoboost 125 titanium and im looking to chop it in for a few year old focus. ( house saving need to be boosted) i have been looking for cars around the 10k mark and i am stuck for what engine to go for.

Both are titaniums both have around 30-40k miles on, I do around 1000 miles per month and once a week complete a 100 mile round trip on motorways to uni.

i have had the 1 litre eco boost in the fiesta and bmax and i have had the 1.6tdci in the mk2.5 focus. what are people really getting mpg wise in both? i would say i average 40mpg in the ecoboost and im sure the tdci was about 45 ( its been 3 years from whan i had one)

with the DPF is there anything i should be looking at with a 2 or 3 year old car? any common faults on the early mk3's to look for?

Cheers in advanced
