  1. A tuning box tricks the ecu to give more boost and fuel flow pressure a Bluefin is a remap of the ecu you plug it into the obd port with handheld device Bluefin will be safer on the engine than tuning box plus you can re-install original map back when it comes to servicing etc with tuning box you can take it off if need be just a few plugs. Tuning boxes are pretty good these days can get apps to change settings now so no faffing under the bonnet plus they can be cheaper too. Guess it’s down to your choice of preference
  2. Yep mine is the same takes a second or two to engage and if you don’t wait and it clunks into gear when tying to move which has happened a few times now it is annoying but other than that love the car and gearbox
  3. Is it me or are the pop out door protectors no longer on the new focus? They’re not on my ST-Line X 182 but on reviews of the car online they are. Not that I’m bothered as they will probably break with them looking kind of flimsy but did think they were a cool feature. Just wondering if they are anyone else’s focus or they have been dropped? There was no mention of them being dropped before ordering my car which I picked up in September.
  4. I've had my ST-Line X 1.5 182 auto a few weeks now got to say i love the engine like Guy said it does sound a lot better than a 4 pot it's got character kind of like a porsche when accelerating sounds lovely and with the turbo noises too from standard is pretty nice. I've got to say it's definitely quicker than the stats suggest my previous car an Alfa giulietta 1.4 170 was 0-62 in 7.4 and this focus is definitely quicker maybe i'm a lucky ****** and got more power than the 182 😂 You would love one of these over a Golf 1.4 TSI got character, seats are comfortable loads of room inside decent boot size and great cruising on long journey's with low road noise. Test drive the two and see which you prefer but on the 3 pot/4 pot you won't even notice the difference with normal driving
  5. Had my new Focus-ST-Line X 1.5 ecoboost 182 auto a couple of weeks now love the car but after filling up a few times now i've noticed the fuel range is only 320 miles for full tank! ***** shocking that why such a crap fuel range? I read online it has a 54 ltr tank my prvious car was an Alfa Giulietta 1.4 and that had a 60 ltr i was getting about 500 miles. Something doesn't seemright about that plus with the Focus only averaging 26mpg it's gone in no time and that isn't with driving with a heavy foot. Is anyone else's fuel range as pathetic as mine?
