  2. Mk8 ST-Line X 140 early impressions

    Don't get me wrong, if the ST was available to order in January, that's the one I'd have ordered rather than the ST Line but during my standard (and many others) commute, I highly doubt the car's full potential would be usable.
  3. LED headlamps

    I like the scrolling indicators but not enough to change the car for. I'm more interested in the whiter and brighter light output from the LEDs. Hoping they'll be on par with bi xenon's at least on full beam.
  4. LED headlamps

    Although I'm quite gutted to have missed out on the LEDs (not sure why Ford waited until now to offer but hey, the production/release of this current gen has been a bit sloppy by Ford), still haven't made my mind up if I actually like the sequential indicators or whether they're just a bit of a gimmick.
  5. Mk8 ST-Line X 140 early impressions

    During daily driving, what else is on offer than BHP? Like I mentioned earlier, I don't think stiffer suspension or LSDs make any difference when your average speed is around 20-25mph in a city. I did say that the extra BHP would be handy in a city regardless, but to get the full benefits of an ST, you would need to "rag" it - of course, the definition of that varies between people, but how else, aside from the BHP, would you use the extra that the ST offers?
  6. D13 HPD - Mk3 RS

    First launch control test it’s good fun haha
  7. Just for the hell of it i priced wishbones front shocks and drop links from Ford and the local factors for an 06 focus mk2 2.0 petrol W/bones Ford - £210 n/s £155 o/s.....factors - £70 (doesnt matter which side so what are Ford all about!)....fai Shocks Ford (seemingly Monroes) £106 a side.....factors 60 - kayaba drops Ford - 80 pair.....factors 30 fai Now we all know stealer parts are or should be better made ect ect but does anybody know roughly how much they're coining in from us?
  8. Noise led me to another problem?

    Thanks for the reply I have noticed a few nicks in the rear tyres, 1 particularly bad I'm actually going to get it checked tomorrow, quite a deep slash might need a repair or replacement, will see how it goes after sorting this As for the rubber it seems nice and simple so will pop into Ford and get the parts to change these over, anything else worth replacing while I'm at it?
  9. Things I Do Like

    I like how I found a tip online to fix the scroll wheel on my mouse which involved nothing more than a T6 Torx screwdriver, WD40 and a cotton bud . Saved me splashing out on a nice new RGB version of the same mouse .
  10. Show Us Your Mk3.5!

    Thanks for the compliment. Flaps are Rally Armor, easy to fit excellent quality. They not cheap but you pay for quality. Bought them from here https://www.tarmacsportz.co.uk/brands/rally-armor/2013-onwards-ford-focus-mud-flaps-blue-logo.html
  11. FORD 1.6 TI-VCT 2011

    I have never heard this and doesn't ring true. Where did you get that idea from? I've been revving my cars and flooring it straight after start up for years and not had any issues whatsoever.
  12. Thanks. Some goes to tezza for helping ,advising & ordering me stuff. Yunii Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk
  13. Mk8 ST-Line X 140 early impressions

    There’s a lot more on offer than just the BHP figure and if you think you’d need to “rag” it to notice the difference... 🤔😂😂
  14. Hay, I bought it as a set, the upper and lower part, I sprayed the black part of the defuser in plastidip, but it was the worst thing I did, the whole thing now looks like I cheese gartered it. So have to idea what I am going to do?
  15. Today
  16. LED headlamps

    With the LED headlights on the front yes, don't know about the back
  17. Leather steering wheel refurb

    Thanks, was a bit dubious about the magic eraser but as your link says restores the leather aroma too I think I’ll give it a try!
  18. i have second powershift no problem at all

    I have seen darker wheels than mine, so I’m assuming there are two shades. These are the only two I can find for the Edge, and your code is definitely for the dark tarnished ones.
  20. Haynes

    The Haynes book of lies is good. You haven't lived until you've turned the page to be face with a random picture of an Allegro engine bay while replacing a head gasket.
  21. LED headlamps

    Am I right in saying they give you the Audi sequential indicators? I am buzzing for this car
  22. Focus Bulb Lists

    some rear led ? ( tailights)
  23. Anyone actually managed to update Sync 1.1

    Glad it worked for you! Notice any difference?
  24. Disabling OBD/DLM on 2018 S-Max

    Hi RainmakerRaw, Congratulations on getting new car. S-Max is a please to drive and very comfortable. I have done the same thing my S-max 2017. I've removed the fuse labeled Data Link connector. Also, as I have a keyless entry, I've bought a signal blocker pouch from amazon. This blocks the signal boosters from working from outside the house. Plus a simple stoplock steering lock will be a brilliant deterrent. Be careful when removing the fuse though as the fuse is a micro fuse and can easily slip behind the plastic trim. All the best.
  25. Upgrading front Brakes to ST180 brakes?

    Thanks for all the information guys. will get round to it soon but its currently snowing so i will have to do it next week.
  26. LED headlamps

    It's a £600 upgrade, so the cost of the standard lights and switches will be taken off. But yeah it's still good value compared to retrofitting imo.
