Mk3 Zetec S Alloys On Mk2.5 Pics Anyone

14 December 2013 - 11:58 AM

I'm looking at a set of MK3 Zetec S alloys to fit to my Mk2.5 (once I'm finished running my 16" winter steels). Anyone got any pics? I'm not any use with photoshop though I'm trying to locate pics of my car to try.

2009 1.6 Tdci 110 Titanium Bogging Down When Setting Off

14 December 2013 - 11:51 AM

I've just bought a Focus for the wife (I'm on my fourth Focus estate) though it has a tendency to drop the revs when setting off in first and it is generally unhappy at low revs in second too if trying a slow rolling start. My 58 1.6 TDCi (90) doesn't do this, nor did my 06 1.6 TDCi (90 too).

When taking off the revs drop to 6 or 700 and whilst it only takes a couple of seconds to recover it's disconcerting. Is this common? Car drives fine otherwise, although it doesn't feel like much of an improvement over my 90.

Car has 80k and FFSH, non elloys DPF (I think, euro 5).

TIA, Dave
