Drl Wiring

18 June 2015 - 07:22 AM

It's becoming apparent that more and more road users are completely oblivious to other traffic, and for that reason I'm considering fitting DRL's to my car. I've read Lenny's guide on fitting them and it mentions about hooking up one of the wire's to the feed of the side light bulb. What method of 'connecting' would be best that is the least damaging to the original factory wiring?

I don't want to have to whip out a soldering iron.

Egr & Mot

05 June 2015 - 09:28 AM

I'm getting conflicting information on the internet at the moment. I blanked the EGR off last night and was wondering if it would cause an MOT failure? No engine management light has come on since fitting it.

Model Year: 2011

Engine: 1.6TDCI DV6 Euro 5

Would there be any reason why wide open throttle acceleration is worse than partial throttle? If I put my foot down the car feels like it's hanging back and the turbo seems to spool up slower, than when I accelerate with the throttle barely open.

It's that silly 1.6TDCI French lump that should've never made it's way in to the focus...

Ecoboost 1.0 125 Real World Mpg

25 February 2015 - 09:24 PM

Hi all,

I've been reading around the internet lately that the Ecoboost 1.0 125hp engine is abysmal when it comes to real world MPG figures.

Out of interest what are people getting at the moment with theirs?

Focus Ecoboost Mk3

03 February 2015 - 01:38 PM



March is coming up and I'm looking at replacing my current dirty DERV for a petrol engine car (preferably Ecoboost).

I spoke to my neighbour who has a MK3 Focus (Arnold Clark company car) and he seems to like it. I'm looking at changing to petrol from diesel because I don't cover the mileage to warrant the headaches of running a diesel car, especially when it's fitted with loads of crap like DMF's, DPF's etc etc.

Trim level for the new car would be either a Titanium or Titanium X and it would have to be the pre-facelift because I don't think I can afford a brand spanker.

What are owner's thoughts on the 1.0 Ecoboost in 125hp guise and the vehicle in general? Current car has 60K on the clock and bound to go kupang! at some point...
