Topics I've Started

Premium Fuel

05 June 2013 - 07:38 PM

I've searched for similar topics but can't find any. What do you guys think of premium fuel such as shell v-power nitro+?

My focus does state minimum 95 RON as far as I can tell shell vpower is 99RON. is it worth it? Not sure if I'd get more MPG but mainly for the detergents to help keep the engine clean. My new focus has only done 15k so don't imagine it being that dirty anyway, just wanted to know your thoughts. :-)


Roof Bars And Bike Racks

29 May 2013 - 08:10 PM

Anyone recommend a good place to buy roof bars for my Mk3 2011 focus? I want the Thule wing bars and a couple of bike carriers Thule 591. Ford do an offer of the bars and 1 bike rack for £199 but I think they are the aero ones.

Otherwise its £190 just for the wing bars and then £95 per bike carrier! Or can anyone recommend a cheaper alternative? I do tend to like the best of the best though!



Low Battery Warning

27 May 2013 - 09:45 PM

I just got my second hand focus yesterday. I've had the Battery Low warning a few times. I took it out for about an hour today Which I hope fixes it. However the start stop feature doesn't, work and a cause is low battery voltage. I'm guessing this is linked. Going to speak to the dealer but just wanted to see if anyone else had the same problem? I recon its just because its not be used in a while?

New Focus Owner

Hi all!


Just wanted to say hello. I've just bought a 2 year old focus and got a great deal on a titanium model. yey for me! Should have it by the end of the week or early next week, I really can't wait.


Its got a few added extras above the titanium, so no doubt I'll be asking how to use the them all :)
