Got the gti back in August last year. It's a good looking car, it's comfy and has the power every 21 year old requires but I just feel it's a very overrated car that has no character to it and the focus was traded for the gti which was the biggest mistake I made
Ok guys some of you may know I'm currently rocking a vw golf gti mk5. I still hate it so being a new year and with the finance on it tumbling every month and the mileage a little over 40,000 I'm hoping I can get a good trade in later in the year for what I originally intended to get a mk 2.5 focus st-3. I'm hoping to have it by summer and have a fair few mod ideas lined up for it when I get one. Also does the st use the horrific canbus error system. I'm also open to mod ideas that u guys can suggest.
In my best possible "David Norris" impersonating voice .....
As most of you are now aware I'm moving to Toyota.
It will be my new project and main hobby now the focus is complete,
As result I have resigned from the forum as a moderator,
I have also disabled the PM feature,
And removed my signature so it doesn't fill the threads.
I am losing interest in the blue oval after three years of 24/7 dedication
And the creation of 28 detailed guides its starting to become repetitive and no longer feels enjoyable more like a duty.
I will still be online but only for the fun and enjoyment of communicating with fellow users,
I won't be updating links to items previously linked
Or answering PM's
Im seeing this and after a short term out I cant believe What I have just read but anyway all the best and hopefully you will enjoy the toyota and stick around here
Ok guys a bit pic heavy but more of the gti as promised.
I have only completed 2 mods and that's wind deflectors and full white led interior light conversion and have a bluetooth kit planned to add but dont wanna spend much on it if u read below you will see why.
Opinion on the car, well tbh I cant wait to get rid of it. Dont get me wrong its fast, comfy, looks and sounds great, its loaded with full leather sat nav auto lights and wipers but I just think its not me I regret not getting an st so badly. I now feel like im withdrawn from ford and dont fit well with the gti at all so trying my damnest to get my gf to get a ford so I can borrow it to fulfil my ford withdrawals. Its honestly that bad im planning my next car which is just under 4 years away. So good news here is that my next car will be another ford focus but I have decided to get the one I truly fell for when I first laid eyes on it the focus rs500 yeah I know big money and high insurance but im hoping that the mk3 rs will be out and reduce the prices. But this is 4 years away so if I get one I will be ecstatic but if not then it will be a standard rs.
After being told the last car i was about to buy was sold and talking to the sales manager with a very annoyed voice I was told it was a confusion after I spoke to the garages service manager. However I managed to succeed in buying the car which is a vw golf gti. So I wont be a true member on foc not owning a ford. But I would like to stick about as this is possibly the Best forum on the internet if its ok with you guys as your a fine bunch and deserve credit for the help and time you give others.
So thanks everyone for making my time here pleasurable and addictive at some points and hope to keep in touch with all who I have connected with.
P.s if you want when I get some pics of the new motor I shall post them so you can all laugh
Ok guys thanks for the moral boosting messages much appreciated. I can confirm I have a new job as a motor parts delivery driver for a company called Dingbro start tomorrow so I dunno maybe I will be joining the fiesta bunch but I have until Wednesday to decided
