Hello from Ireland

Recommended Posts

Hello from Ireland! Hi my name is Robert and I'm an aging car fanatic.. Recently picked up a 2011 Zetec-S whilst over in England and brought it back home on the ferry.

My motoring history has been entirely either Fords or Peugeots.. In historical order it's been like this; 

  • 1985 Peugeot 205 XE 1.0 (written off)
  • 1989 Ford Fiesta XR2 (written off)
  • 1986 Ford Fiesta XR2 (non runner, just for parts)
  • 1988 Ford Fiesta 1.0 (fitted with bodykit and dash from above)
  • 1988 Ford Fiesta XR2 (sold on)
  • 1991 Peugeot 206 GTi 1.6 (Sorrento Green, sold on)
  • 1997 Peugeot 306 D-Turbo (sold on)
  • 1999 Peugeot 306 GTi-6 (sold on)
  • 2002 Ford Focus LX 1.4 (still own)
  • 2011 Ford Focus Zetec-S 1.6 (new baby)

The GTi-6 went to numerous car shows over the years. I went with the guys'n'gals of the Pug Sport Club, so I'm familiar with that scene. 

Of course I'm a lot older now and living abroad.

Here's a pic of my of my latest vehicle:

As this was my first post I'd thought that I'd like to keep this particular thread up to date with all my related issues thus far down the road of ownership.

  • Coolant entering engine oil - couple of coolant flushes, couple of oil changes and a oil cooler later [SOLVED]
  • Door seal weatherstrips coming away from door.
  • Mudflaps to fit Zetech-S [SOLVED] - RallyFlapz pricey at £100 and yet to be purchased/fitted.
