#357238 My St / Rs Mk2 Build Up. Project Phenomenal!

Posted by Hassen on 26 April 2014 - 05:40 PM

Amazing project and impressive work. Can't wait to see it back from the painters. Not really a fan of the E.O as I prefer the blue colour but to each their own. 

 

Saw one today in the car park in Dundrum, Dublin Ireland. My son Daniel, who is barely 3 goes to be "Dada, that's the Rs Focus!" Nearly brought a tear to my eye :P




#354630 How To Improve Fuel Economy And Power?

Posted by Hassen on 17 April 2014 - 09:37 PM

60+ mpg from the trip computer of the car? That is impressive for a 2L duratorq, 2003. I personally don't trust the trip computer and use an app that records the amount of fuel I put in everytime.

 

I wonder what kind of mpg others on the forum are getting with the 1.6 and 1.8 tdci just to compare.

Lenny, always keeping us entertained :) 

 

BBS and tints would make it looks slick. Like the fact that it's black and 3 doors. Or, taking a leaf from mighty car mods videos, you could always get some bigger steel rims and have them lightly stretched out like they did. Also, could get spacers to widen the tracks. Cheap but it would look awesome and especially if you get the steelies painted or powder coated. Just my thoughts. 

Enjoy the new car :)

Nice speech Lenny. Very sensible indeed. Cars come and go like you said.

 

Good luck with the wedding plans etc. I have no clue how to plan a wedding as mine had 20 odd people and I had nothing to do with it. All I did on the day was get into my suit and take a taxi to the registry office :P

 

The second time was in Mauritius and still I had nothing to do with it. All I did was turn up. 

 

No, I have only been married to one person :P Go figure

+1 for getting the car with Terraclean. From the bit of research I did, older cars would benefit greatly from it. Might get some of those ponies that were lost over the years as well. It's not that expensive either.

ROfl. Hilarious read as usual.

 

Big congrats to you and Vicki, Lenny on both the upcoming wedding and new addition to the family :)

 

Good to hear you are practising your Scandinavian flick. Fingers crossed you are not stopped by your know who in the middle of the night :P




#348180 Mpg

If I may suggest to brim the tank and use and app such as Mileage off Google Play store to keep track of your fuel consumption. I am dubious of the mpg reading off my own car as it has never lined up with what I am getting by using the app. Also, usual things to watch out for mpg e.g tyre pressure, carrying excess weight, engine regularly maintained, clean air filter etc.

Next time you are either around Mullingar, Tullamore or Athlone, give me a shout as would love to see either cars you driving. 
That is a very good deal btw for the exhaust given the amount of work gone into it. You think you will hold on to this for a while now or just change it after the NCT? 

As for the RS breaking, real sad given how nice that car is. Wish again I had funds to go get the bodykit off it for my own car :D

Btw, Lenny, look what I found being dismantled for parts if you are looking for Focus parts:

I think, that is subtle enough not to attract the wrong kind of attention, while still retaining it's purpose and fun factor. Souhans do outstanding work and I wish I had the funds to get the exhaust done on my Focus. How was the drive to Mullingar? You could have popped over the hospital where I work to show me the car :P

Oh no, look what I started with my "innocent" question :P

Had to show my wife, who is sitting next to me, the responses. Hilarious read and made me rofl. She just elbowed me for starting trouble. 

Lenny, I genuinely admire your drive and go-get it attitude. I wish I had an ounce of that man :)

Jeez Lenny. Kudos to you for driving that much to pick up all these parts. Btw, how do you find the time to do all this? I wish I had your enthusiasm. Maybe Vicki knows your secret to such energy :P

Looking good there Lenny. Where abouts are you going in your trip round Ireland?
