Kiddo.... mk3.5 focus estate 1.5tdci 120 titanium x

Recommended Posts

Hey guys and girls, I'd like to introduce Kiddo (wife named her), shes a 1.5 tdci 120 titanium x estate in deep impact blue, has just over 92k on the clock.

We have had the car from new as a motability car and bought her as she does the family job, plus we do more miles that are allowed.  She had a replacement short block at 47k as the camshaft sprocket decided to splinter into 4 pieces.

 

Ok, enough background for now,  plans are to remove all chrome from the car as it ain't our cup of coffee, then the usual wheels, suspension brakes etc, some sort of rear pipe, making the full car body coloured (front balance, skirts and rear valance), tints, interior, then we can get to engine fun.

Ok now for some pictures, forgive the mucky car, hides the scratches from inconsiderate people that scratch her as they walk by, already added the fake foglight grills, as you can see here, and just added the genuine black honeycomb grill but forgot to take a snap of it, i also have a complete genuine st line front valance but not the 4 brackets that as needed to fit it.20190615_153230.thumb.jpg.fb00ddf796f7ca9c1c61bc424cb28831.jpg20190615_152725.thumb.jpg.219cf0f744afbe2e610226e2edf0fc40.jpg20190615_153048.thumb.jpg.4bb9ee914ec8a3aa696a4ebb854edad7.jpg

She has a few miles on her20190615_152754.thumb.jpg.059c19d70a0d4c35953387d86c18a1d8.jpg

And is starting show

Can anyone recommend a good obd plug/software for diagnostics and possibly for changing variant configuration?

 

Thanks

Hey, little update, got a great deal on a set of 8x18 inch Rosso RR9's

and I'm going to marry them to 225 40 18 Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5's

I know there will be a discrepancy of 1.51% in the speedo, at 60 I will be doing  about 60.9, acceptable I think especially considering the saving over the 235's that would be the correct dia to keep the speedo correct.

I know I should get the steering lock limiters but from what I have read some 17inch wheeled cars got them as standard, is there anyway to tell without taking the boots off.

 

Pics once fitted.

 

Thanks

A few pictures of kiddo wearing her new shoes, as said in the post above, these are 18x8 rosso rr9's 5x108 et40 wearing Goodyear Eagle f1 asymmetric 5's in 225 40 18's

Started getting weird looks from people so took a couple more from home, on the plus side the rain made the car look more cleaner than it is

Fills the arch nicely I think, and there is only a very minor rub on full lock, so I'll be looking into the steering lock limiter as well as dropping the car a little.

 

 

Thanks

Missed this one lol. Don't often come to this part of the forum.

Anyway, if you're lowering the car at all, then I'd definitely recommend rack limiters.

Perhaps look into getting the back windows tinted? You'd be surprised how much of a difference it makes to the look of the car.

Hi, aye the wife wants tints done asap, but with needing a pair of tyres for the Original 17's, then getting a great deal on the wheels and tyres, it's been pushed back a wee bit.  We are hoping to get it done soon though.

 

Thanks
