#295143 Audio Experts Please View, Lenny Requires Sound Advise

Posted by Hassen on 07 October 2013 - 08:50 PM

Lenny, you will have to update me how the boom mats work out as I was tempted to get them once I have fund to get my Focal PS165 component speakers.

 

Foca, all the information you put up was great to read. I think I understood and learnt a thing or two from it. Gonna try to apply that to my own sound project. Thanks :)

Lenny, you are right about the stands. Safer the other way.

 

And, btw, you can always leave Vicki to chat with my wife. I am sure they will have a field day talking about how ''My husband is obsessed with his car. That's all he talks about!" Lol.

Had to show this to my wife and she had a good laugh reading it. 

 

Lenny is always welcomed for a play date. I will get the tools and the cars ready :P

 

Btw, Halfords are having a deal on jack stands and other tools. Check it out:

Lenny, if you are going to visit Co. Offaly, you are more than welcome to pop over to Tullamore if it's on your way and have a cup of tea or something stronger! Along with Mrs Lenny and the kids as well. My wife keeps telling me that it's weird that I talk about you and what you been doing to your car without having met you. Pfff... I swear...I am not crazy :P

Congrats! That is one very clean looking engine. I reckon this car was looked after very well since the owner was a mechanic. How is the interior? And where did you find it? Thought the car was gonna be purchased next year lol.

 

Btw, there is a crowd up in Dublin doing trade in for alloys if the ones you got are not to your taste. 

www.route66dublin.ie. You have to call into them though to get a quote. They have a big selection from what I can see. Never deal with them so far though.

 

Tell me about working random hours! I am on call tonight and fingers crossed it's quiet now.

Lenny, many thanks for all the advice and guides you posted. Best of luck with the new car :)

Woohoo! Nicely done Lenny. Can't wait for the pictures. What mods are already on it or is it a stock car?

 

p.s: Do you not sleep? re post at 12:49am? lol




#293745 Jean Genie - Focus "stdci"

Posted by Hassen on 01 October 2013 - 10:03 AM

That's cool regarding the remap. The price quoted is very decent and like you said, with the mileage, it would pay for itself by saving on fuel.

 

Also, do consider a tuning box as well as the new ones do a very good job. I know a lot of people wouldn't agree with me on this, but I have had one for the last few months and it has paid for itself by saving on my fuel bills. Granted it took a lot of tweaking of the settings to get what I wanted from it but there is now the option of either going for an eco or max mode with the twist of two buttons on the box. Another upside is the amount of low end torque that is very usable on a day to day basis rather than just having most of the torque at the top end of the rev range. Major downside was that it was not as easy as I thought to fit it as the engine bay is quite cramped for that connection,

Hard luck Lenny with Option 1 being sold. There are a good few out there, so don't worry too much. You might even end up with a better one :)




#290232 2013 Upgrades

Posted by Hassen on 14 September 2013 - 09:07 PM

Guys, my rubber pedals are a bit worn out and thinking of getting a set of new pedals. 

 

Any recommendations of which ones to go for and where to get them?

Thanks

@Lenny: Will keep an eye out and if I see any new ones will PM you. Did you consider trying to import a fresh one from Japan? Or better, find a nice used model from the UK and bring it over. I reckon there will be a good few more over there than here.

 

@Vicki: Let Lenny enjoy life a little. He has served his biological purpose already ;) Let him have his toy...ahem project car. The way I see it is, he is a wealth of knowledge already and will be helping out others with his future guides for the next car. That kind of karma goes a long way and it's always good to have some good karma in this lifetime. Plus, it could be worse and he could have chosen to get a golf :P

P.S: After seeing that Mighty Car Mods episode, I really wanted to get myself an MX-5 as a project car. Still could be my mid life crisis plan :P

Lenny, been following your plans for a while. I found this today just in case you were interested:

Price seems right and appears to not have any mods done so far. Might be a winner :)

#285124 My Mk2.5 Focus Titanium

Posted by Hassen on 26 August 2013 - 03:20 PM

I reckon that it would be a drastic change having the windows tinted. Mine came in with factory tints in the rear and rear window. My car being black, they look even darker than they actually are. Plus, they are useful in hot days and give a nice touch. Getting them tinted I reckon shouldn't cost silly money.


Lenny got his done aftermarket and would be able to give you a guide price roughly.
