#504852 Kpgs Mk3 Focus Titanium

Posted by kpg on 21 July 2015 - 06:46 PM

Hello! Some cool news.

I bought a bottle of "Bleeding Iron" from a UK company called Juicy Details UK and only after trying it on my alloys. It's well good I must say, best cleaning product for the car I've ever bought.

Stupidly I only took after shots of my alloys but I did one of the wife's just for you all to see:

One Ming-dog wheel:

Spray on and leave for 2mins:

Wash off with hose:

That style of wheel is notorious for being hard to clean but the stuff did a crackin job on it.

Here's mine after being cleaned. I didn't do in inside of the wheels yet as I was testing the stuff first:

Pics don't do it justice really, it completely ripped through the caked in orangey brake dust on the corners.

So happy lol I'd recommend it.

Thanks to Nath for pointing me in the right direction.

The middle ones are kuga 19 inch wheels available as an option or standard on titanium x sport only


Yep. I like the 19 Mondeo ones best. Kinda ST-like but not at the same time.

Never been keen on chrome on cars for the sake of it.
My car doesn't have exterior chrome and I'm glad of that.


I agree. I keep looking out the window at the car and smiling. I guess that means I like the new blackness lol

We'll see after I get the car lowered if I want to go up to 19". Happy for now though.

Just finished the rest on the drivers side. I'll have to redo the rear quarter glass bit, some chrome still showing through. But I like it.

Hahaha :D ... I hope I didn't scare you too much :D
 
Btw, how's the drive on those 18"? I was playing with the idea of getting set of 18" rims and tires for my Mk2, but I rather went for the 17"s, just to be safe, and although they fit very nicely (and for replicas, they're pretty great quality too!), I'm thinking of the RS style wheels for maybe next year or year after that...


The 18s on my mk3 are ok actually. Low road noise and not really as bumpy as id thought.

I had the 18" Mondeo TitX alloys on my MK2 with the 40mm springs and they were ok as well, quite crashy when on a bumpy road but that's normal. I didn't find it uncomfortable enough to complain about lol they are a good looking alloy though. Those and the ones on my new car are my favourite oem alloys.

Really lovely motor. Got any mods planned? Looks quite economical as well. What engine you went for?


Hmm no mods yet, probably just small things like leds here and there. Not allowed any major ones for a while , the boss says lol

It's the 1.6 125bhp version. Nice note of it actually.

I've already started another progress thread. How do I rename this one?

Very nice color/spec combo, exactly how I'd have it, if I were to buy an Mk3 tomorrow.
 
Make sure you get onto the simple mods straight away though, like LED conversions.  ;)


My mods, even little ones, are being limited for a while. The boss has spoken I'm afraid. I have a set of HIDs (reflector) to go in and some new fog light bulbs but still have to get some sidelight leds.

I might get the rear windows tinted too. Got too used to it in my last car. The guy at work does tints so might get him to squeeze me in sometime.

What a car. Literally just home from a long drive after picking her up and all I can say is she is faultless. Came with full service history and every tax disc plus stamped book from the dealer.

One happy boy right here.
