New Ford Owner!!

06 July 2013 - 05:15 PM

Hey all, just about to join you all in owning a Ford!

 

I have agreed a purchase on a 2009 59-plate Mondeo Econetic as below:

 

(Mondeo 2007-, 1.8L Duratorq-TDCi ECO (125PS), Ink Blue (Metallic)

 

Build Date:   22.10.2009 Vehicle Line:   Mondeo 2007- Body Style:   5 Door Saloon Version:   Series 40 Engine:   1.8L Duratorq-TDCi ECO (125PS) Transmission:   5-Speed Manual Trans - MTX75 Drive:   RHD FWD Emission:   Stage IV Emissions Air Conditioning:   Dual Zone Auto Temp Control A/C Territory:   (+)"GB" Paint:   Ink Blue (Metallic) Interior Fabric:

  Daphne/Twill / Ebony

 

 

I'm paying £6500, it has 53k miles on it, FHS, 1 owner from new.

Does this sound like a worthwhile deal to you??

 

Either way, I'm looking at adding parking sensors to it so the missus doesn't destroy it (previous car was a Clio!), I'm not to fussed about doing it myself incase I get it wrong, and not sure how I go about getting someone to do them for me.

 

Is it really as easy as people say? What can I expect to pay for someone doing it for me?

 

 

I'm new to modding at the likes, but am open to new ideas, are there any you can pass on?

 

Many thanks!!

P.S. Also I'm not sure if I've done anything wrong on this post, or posted it in the wrong area!!

 


New Focus And Footwell Lights...

18 September 2012 - 09:22 PM

Hi all, just about to join all you Focus drivers out there, but I've hit a stumbling block...I simply love Ford's, always have, but what has clinched the Focus for my missus (amongst other things) is the interior lighting!!

Now, in the brochure, the Titanium shows a "red" colour light in the footwell...Ford states it as "Interior ambient lighting with LED technology and footwell courtesy lights".

The Titanium X however shows the "ice blue" she has fallen in love with...Ford states this as "Interior ambient lighting with multi-colour LEDs".

This has me confused. Does the Titanium only have the "red" footwell lights, or can you change the colour?


Either way, I'm over the moon we've settled on the Focus, being a one-child family it simply cannot be faulted!! I just want to iron out the smaler details before getting over-excited and buying without checking everything.


Thanks in advance for any comments you make guys!!
