Travelpilot Fx

14 January 2015 - 11:55 AM

I'm looking at buying a new SatNav DVD unit for the Focus and I currently have the TravelPilot FX (i think)


Does anyone know the resale value on a 2nd hand one of these. The new System is £350 and I will probably never fit the original back to the car.





Strange Twang

14 December 2014 - 03:51 PM

Hi guys/girls

I have noticed a strange noise coming from the front left (i think) of the car. It happens when i go over a pothole or large bump in the road.

The best way I can describe it is that it that sounds like a ruler being 'twanged' on the edge of a desk

Anyone have any ideas??


Lowering A Focus....

22 October 2014 - 05:14 PM

I've finally decided that I'm going to lower the Focus but I have a few questions....

1) How much should I lower it by? 40mm seems the standard amount when I have looked at kits. My car has the 'handling' pack but I'm not sure if it is already lower than a standard focus setup....it doesn't look it.

2) Any recommended kits that people have already fitted? I've been told that Eibach kits are alright, but any opinions welcomed

Air Induction Kit

Been looking at them for a while, but wanted to get some opinions on them from people with a) a Ford Focus and B) an air induction kit.

I've read they can hammer fuel economy if you have a heavy foot and that they can also damage your engine


Creaking Drum Brakes

26 September 2014 - 01:00 PM

As the title suggests, when my handbrake is on and someone gets in or out of the car, the drumbrakes creak like mad.


This used to happen on my Corsa (bad language I know) and I didn't really care as it was piece of rubbish.


It has now started happening on my Focus and I'm wondering if anyone has any tips/tricks to cure it.
