#322734 2010 Focus What Headlights??

Lenny you star!!
Thank you so much!!

It seems that halfords try to employ numptys for the fun off it!!
When I was looking at a new stereo I said it's double din and all they wanted to do was sell me a single din haha!! I only went in there because they had the Sony unit I was looking at cheaper than anywhere else.
Needless to say my money went else where and I ended up with a pioneer ;)

Hi guys, I've got a 2010 focus zetec, and I need some new bulbs but when I went to get some they asked if they were HID or XENON.

Now to be completely honest I haven't got a clue what they are and was wondering if anybody on here could help?

 

Thanks in advance guys

I done this today, it's the Pioneer AVH-X2500BT (same as above)

Really easy install, steering controls work fine, looks good and the sound quality is amazing compared to the factory unit.

Theres a usb run into my glovebox that controls an iPod/usb device, this also runs the ipod from a standard iPod  lead , it's got the advanced app mode feature, a cd/dvd slot, bluetooth audio streaming/handsfree calls and is very customisable.

I bought mine along with the entire fitting kit from car audio centre online and was happy with the price.

As you can see mine is the later oval shaped style and I had no problems getting the facia adapter.

Thanks  Dominic, I normally use the 2 bucket method, this time however it turns out that my border collie pup liked the taste of my 2nd bucket and chewed a hole in the bottom of the bucket!! 

I just kept renewing the wash bucket i had, i also hosed the car down 1st then washed with a mf mit, rinsed again with the hose then used a brand new sponge on the tougher dirt patches, rinsed off again, clayed, polished and dodo juiced.

Hi guys, I was naughty and bought it today, it's a 2010 facelift model with 10k on the clock, 1.6 diesel manual, zetec spec plus parking sensors on the rear, i drove her and fell in love instantly so if all goes well i should be bringing her home on saturday as she needed to be prepped for sale properly.

 

I feel quite naughty but she really was nice to drive

Ahhh no way, my old housemate had that car too! one of a kind, it sounded like it needed an inhaler :)

 

:lol:  you are kidding about the fairy liquid?! windscreen wipers get a foam party every now and again do they? I can see that tip sticking for some reason.....or it'd make a good prank ;)

According to my other half mine sounds like an apache helicopter even though it's only on 52k and is full of castrol gtx haha!!

 

Nope gods honest truth it was hilarious, my sister couldn't work out what we were laughing at, the fairy bottle in her hand was it for me I just burst into laughter and was on the floor in seconds closely followed by my dad doing the same, when we could breathe again we both turned and said "please tell me that bottle isn't really a fairy bottle" when she said yeah we started all over again hahaha!!!

To be honest I'm currently driving a 1998 1.6 8v petrol astra that has no go whatsoever bless it so I'm sure the focus will surprise me haha.

 

As for putting my foot down in low gears i know all about that as my dad is a mechanic and I've been round cars all my life thanks to him so I've picked up a few tips from him over the years, I think the best one though was don't do what your sister done and put fairy liquid in your washer tank... made my day  :lol:

 

canon gear rules  ;)

I'm looking at zetec upwards, but I've found a really nice one in uxbridge, its a 2011 1.6 tdci 110 zetec with 25k on the clock so going to have a look tomorrow and may bring it home haha.

I like older style engines there easier to work on and bits are generally cheaper haha.

 

Thanks for the tip on the egr valve dan, it's something i had on a diesel pug a few years ago that done my head in.

 

Also thanks for the warm welcome so far guys :)
