#518627 New Privilege Offer

Posted by CookieM on 02 September 2015 - 05:50 PM

Cheers Nath!


Well i'll see what the dealer themselves say when i've got some wquotes in.


I was going to take it to my local dealers however i've already had several different quotes from the 3 local ones and they know i have a privilege voucher. I thought this might make them unwilling to give me a good discount...





I think that's the way most people do it. Get some quotes from DTD etc and take them to local dealers to match/beat then add the privilege discount to it.

#513449 How Many Mpg Do You Get With Your Focus?

Posted by CookieM on 18 August 2015 - 09:28 PM

25 :lol: only done ~700 miles so far but not expecting to see much more than that. I'm just happy that's it's doing the same miles to a tank as my Fiesta ST so it's only costing the £10 ish per tank more. Definately worth the extra! :D

i've been looking at getting a new exhaust for the car. Didn't want anything too loud and didn't really want to take the risk of effecting the trade in price, so the perfect choice was the mountune cat back. Apparently this isn't in stock until later this month so i put my email in the notify box and started getting quotes to have it fitted.


Then i realised that i need to notify my insurance company so rang to see if it would have any effect. Turns out they won't insure me at all with the exhaust (not really sure why?), although when i changed from my old car they did have to go to the underwriters due to the insurance group of the focus and my age. Everywhere else is wanted about £200 extra on the premium (takes it up to ~£1000) just to add the exhaust and even tried Adrian flux but they wanted £2500!


So unfortunately had to scrap the idea :(

Who are you insured with? My insurance company (hastings) do "new car replacement" which basically means if the car is within a year old and you are the first registered owner they will replace the car exactly as it was in the unfortunate event of a write off.

Aviva, my last insurance company also did this.

#507497 Can You Change St Drl Colour

Posted by CookieM on 30 July 2015 - 05:42 PM

Depends on the film. I had a go with the fly eye on my old ZS and just couldn't get it to sit properly because of the shape of the light.

does look good if you can get it on though lol

#507339 Can You Change St Drl Colour

Posted by CookieM on 29 July 2015 - 10:46 PM

I think it would be very tricky if not impossible as they are embedded inside the light casing.

Funny how most people do everything they can to get rid of the yellowness of lights and your wanting to put it on :lol:

So picked the car up a couple of hours ago and obsolutely loving it! Bit of a different driving position compared to the fiesta so still getting used to that n screen is covered in fingerprints already so gonna have to get some kind of cloth for that lol.

Not put my foot down too much yet, but love the way it drives so far.
