Very nice. I've got a new ST Line X due in March - but no date yet.

auto, fully loaded

You’ll know this, from new the fully loaded part is over £5k. Only extra I got was the blue paint. Couple of extras I wouldn’t want are the wireless phone charger and the keyless entry. I would’ve got everything else if it’d been possible.

very nice, i’m picking up the metallic grey manual gearbox on saturday, trading in my 13 plate focus s

 

 

quick question for anyone with one already,

 

how quickly do the electric front seats move? does it take a while to move them positions or is it quite quick and smooth?

I do like that dark red.

 

Stick some osram nightbreakers in the dipped beam, they make the lights look less yellow against the LED strips.

Have you got these on your focus? 

I’d like them on my headlights but really it’s the reversing light could do with being brighter. I think the mk3 had 2 🤔

Yes, on the dipped.  Mk4 only has one reversing light.  You could replace that with LED I guess.

That’s weird the Focus has one reverse light, my Fiesta has 2.

Yes, I was surprised to find that, most cars these days only have the one, like the SEAT Leon I had previously. The reverse light on that was worse than a candle, so I found an LED replacement was a big improvement.

The Fiesta's two are probably some mistake that the bean counters missed! Whatever, it does make reversing at night a doddle, particularly if you have the camera and sensors as well.

According to my manual, the mk 4 reverse light is LED.  As are front indicators, side repeaters, rear fogs, rear licence plate.

Why they didnt go full led on the rear across the range I dunno, surely cheaper than having to make seperate clusters.

First time with electric seats here and I find they adjust quite smoothly. Only niggle for me is that no memory on the ST Line X but it only takes a few seconds to go from furthest forward to as far back as it can.Would be so much better with a simple press of a switch rather than hold the switch with finger.

You think the manual is correct on that? 

Reversing in the dark is tricky, have to brake a bit to get light from the brake lights! 

My front indicators aren’t LED

re not going full LED was to sell the adaptive go round corners LED headlights.

Reverse and rear fog lamps are LED regardless of model.

Rear lamps will not be LED on an ST-Line X

Front indicators are only LED with Adaptive LED Headlights

Really pleased with it, 59.4 mpg on the way home from Essex to Norfolk at 70mph, love it. I haven’t used it much since this ***** virus started, had Mother’s Day planned etc, as probably everyone else did. Put my private plates on, hence the different reg numbers 😊Keep Well, and Keep safe.

Another nice colour. I know what you mean, when it gets warmer it’s going to be a toss up between sorting our garden out or giving the Focus a good wash and polish 😳
