#466406 Rust On Bodywork!

Posted by higgsy on 17 March 2015 - 10:58 AM

I wouldn't worry about it, its not really any different from there being rust on a subframe or wishbone or something, its not body work. If it was me i would treat with kurust and paint it with hammerite at some point, but only because I keep my engine bay clean.

#430694 Focus Bluetooth Issues

Posted by higgsy on 23 November 2014 - 02:08 AM

FYI my Bluetooth works fine with a Nexus 5 (On 4.4 and now 5.0), so it's not the phone. I am on the latest Nov 2012 firmware on the module. When I select the Bluetooth on the phone it immediately tells me (speaks) to enter the code on the screen and pairs instantly.

Look pretty normal to me. They are already greased up, they only have a bit of white grease on anyway. Whack them on

Ok cool cheers Lenny, I have emailed Bosch anyway (before your post). The design seems backward, less quality if you like. Its just I have used aerotwins for probably 8 years or so ans they have always looked like the old ones and it got me suspicious

I have been looking on the net and have found other sites/images of the ones I have been supplied, however I am still not convinced they are genuine

Yeah got the red cree from alltronix, well an ebay seller called autobahn-style, but the paypal receipt shows I've paid alltronix. That was 7.99. The 7w reverse light came from a different seller, they were 2 for £7.99 but work fine

What i bought:



Relay sounds a good idea dude

Ford should have built the focus like that in the first place mate looks much better indeed,

Yeah was thinking yesterday the same, they would have then only had to produce 2 different parts instead of 4 = cheaper, and it would look better too.

I have now purchased a 5w cree bulb with a silver case for the fog bulb as the red standard bulb i got with it causes the clear light to look darker.

Should look nice now with the 7w cree in the reverse light and 5w red cree in the fog.

To br honest the fog light will never get used anyway, can't remember the last time I ever needed to use the rear fog!

Yeah great price, the guy had it on an auction at 99p starting bid £4.99 delivery, i offered him £20 delivered and he put it on a buy it now for 15 quid for me and I got it. Just proves if you save your searches on ebay and be patient you eventually get a bargain. Litterally 2mins to fit too. Might do the dual reverse mod eventually although to be fair I think a cree bulb in the one will be enough for me as I dont have privacy glass.

Bought these Bosch wiper blades for my Focus , on receiving them they don't look anything like the old Bosch blades I had. Now I know manufacturers change their designs over time, but my initial thoughts are they are fakes. What's your thoughts, has anyone bought Bosch Aerotwins lately and what do they look like? Bottom photo is the new blade.
