In Topic: Windscreen Replacement

24 July 2015 - 09:07 AM

Had my windscreen replaced twice at autoglass, great service.


I guess I've been unlucky with my focus and its windscreen though as its the only car I've so far had to replace the windscreen, bottle thrown at it while driving and a stone chip turning into a large crack across the screen. Both occasions costed me the £75 excess.


I always drive to the repair centre as the online booking system is pants and you normally have to wait ages if you want a call out, by that time your chip turns into a crack, so its best to go to a rapid response autoglass repair centre if you have one local as you can get booked in much much quicker.

Thanks, I will try to get some pics up over the weekend, I was thinking about ebay for the headlight assembly but I will probably buy the wrong headlight knowing me.

Focus titanium navigation 1.0 125 in frozen white..........£15,564.10

through drive the deal. how does your privilege compare with that price?





Well customising a New focus Titanium with a few options such as sync2 navigation I think I could get one for around £14000 currently, that's with ford privilege and p/x my focus which was valued at £5000 the other week at Fords.

I might leave it for now anyway, I really want the new focus 1litre but Im not sure Its worth it as my current focus has all the gizmo's and has only got 35'000 on the clock.

Think I should get some more out of it.

yeah thanks, looking I think it makes sense to go for a titanium as the zetec is missing the features I like such as climate control/ reverse sensors.


Having Ford privilege will help as well.


I think you get metallic paint free with that scheme as well as a good saving of about £1700???

You only get manual aircon on Zetec, but it is better than the old twisty dials now.


No auto-dimming mirror as standard on Zetec, but you can add it with the driver assistance pack.


Privacy glass is currently only available as part of appearance pack on Zetec.




Do you think titanium would be better as If Im getting  the sync2 system I think that can control climate unless of course it can still do that with the manual climate.
