Another thing I like: How the Hilton was only £20 more expensive than a Premier Inn.
The view over Manchester from the 15th floor is definitely worth it

I prefer the view of Manchester in my mirrors as I leave

#474719 Hey New Member Here Looking For Mod Help

Posted by SeanW on 09 April 2015 - 03:18 PM


New here and looking for help, I have a 2012 ford focus titanium 1.6tdci 115 and I'm looking for mods I'm open from everything from styling to performance. It will be the first car I have performed mods on so as much help as you can give will be much appreciated.

Stick the kettle on, make a brew and sit down lol

There's no shortage of mod ideas on here!!


And even better, because so many people attempt them, the guides are often ever evolving making life easier


Whilst you're at it, coffee - NATO please bud :D

I was away over the weekend on a course with Cadets.

There was a stunning 19yo instructor with quite possibly the nicest !Removed! I've ever seen...(sshh...I know I'm 27 - but it was a very nice bottom - the rest of her wasn't half bad either)

Imagine my disappointment when she pulled a set of keys out of her pocket...for a Corsa

#472270 Platinum Battery?

Posted by SeanW on 01 April 2015 - 10:30 PM

i might just get it delivered by europarts, its only £45 on-line price for a bosch battery apparently, the £3 id get for the battery i'd lose on fuel to get there. I'll probably just take the battery to the local recycling centre


Stick it out front somewhere with a sign saying "£5" and it'll go!!


I've done that with a few things lol


Funniest one didn't even have a sign on it - it was an old shoe rack.  It was next to bin ready to throw out when all of a sudden there was a tap at the window.  A chap had picked it up, waved at us and gave us a thumbs up and walked off.  My Mum just about wet herself laughing!!

#472203 Platinum Battery?

Posted by SeanW on 01 April 2015 - 08:44 PM

I wouldn't go to Kwik-Fit!!  


If you have a Euro Car Parts near you, they offer battery disposal.  They were doing a £3 trade-in too.


Another option is to stick it up on the Facebook sales/swaps page as being free for collection

#472193 Vauxhall!!! Grrrrrrr!!!!

Posted by SeanW on 01 April 2015 - 08:30 PM

I'd rather insert rusty red hot razor blades into an unmentionable orifice than buy a Vaux**ll.

Are we talking front or back?

Cigarette doesn't have the thermal energy to ignite petrol

However...Zippo lighters are still very common - and have been known to remain lit when dropped...accidentally of course...

Just goes to show...a Corsa's bark really is worse than it's (over)bite

Only thing I tend to do is have a poo before setting off :D

#470899 A Big Announcment

I have heard of the superstition, my Sister did it with her 1st pregnancy but forgot about it for the 2nd lol

Old Wives tale at best.

If the MIL house is that bad, get it back - more likely to cause problems with baby if it's filthy and/or mouldy!!

#470672 Power Steering

Posted by SeanW on 28 March 2015 - 01:37 PM

It's looking like the fault is with the electric steering motor.  You MIGHT be able to swap the sensor, but it's looking like it'll be a new motor - good news is that it doesn't appear to need a whole column

I think he got 18 months in total, but the ability to knock 6 months off if he did that awareness course... But he didn't do it in time, so he had to do the full 18...

I'm after a 2nd hand transit... It's a nightmare trying to find one I can afford... Think I'll have to sell the focus to just get close to the price...

Sent via carrier pigeon using Ford OC

Prices seem to be coming down a bit at the moment.

I've been following Transit prices for about a year (I really want one to convert into a camper lol). The average price has come down by about £1000 over the last 6 months
