Or, if it is just DAB you are after, get down to your Ford dealership sharpish. Ford are offering DAB conversion of your existing radio/CD player for £99 as part of their Ford Reunion promotion.

In Topic: Hole Drilled In Grille Surround

I'm not sure the chrome part separates from the rest of the grille, bonnet lock etc wasn't touched. I'm baffled - if it was kids farting about with a drill I'd have thought there would be more damage!

It's annoying to look at... Time to check ebay!

In the end, got the car from an independent down in Greenock called Crawfurds. Service was top class. Would recommend.

The deals who said that only the 1.8 TDCi's had DPFs was Evans Halshaw.

Another used car place had a 1.8tdci with photos of the dash which showed powertrain warning light on. I emailed and asked what the fault was and if it had been repaired. Didn't get any reply but they changed the photos on their site and auto trader, deleted photo with warning light and put up another one without warning light.

In the end, I found a 2006 Focus Ghia with 30,000 miles. Full service, full years MoT, and alloy refurb thrown in. Made the switch to the 1.6 petrol engine.

Should get it by end of week. First thing on the list is to swap out the walnut fascia for a nice silver one, and upgrade radio to oval using the excellent guide elsewhere on this site!
