  1. The five modes on the Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD) Suspension are. Normal Eco Sport Comfort (extra) Eco-Comfort (extra)
  2. I'm lucky enough to have an ST Line X with all 5 drive modes. They do make a difference. Comfort mode is just that, makes the ride a lot more springy, ideal for speed humps and poor road surfaces. Chalk and cheese compared to the stiffness of sports mode. Likewise Eco modes are polar opposites to sports mode. I generally have eco mode on for motorway driving, switch on the adaptive cruise control and just leave it.
  3. When I ordered by ST Line X auto the dealer said Ford were doing away with padels because no one used them. Fortunately my car 2019 came with padels. Shame if this is the case because I do use them.
  4. On the FordPass app I go to account from the icons at the bottom, then My Journeys, then View, than near the bottom I have 'Off' enabled and the message 'journeys will not be recorded'. It is my understanding that this will stop the tracking.
  5. I have got live traffic and have the tracking switched off. How have you got yours set so you have to have tracking?
  6. Absolutely spotless clean windows will also help. Microscopic moisture droplets attach to the dirt and dust on the inside of the screen causing the fogging. Getting it spotless is another story altogether.
  7. I think it is only available on the 'third rate html manual' or via the FordPass app. I stand to be corrected though. Stuart.
  8. I do know that the Police aren't over fussed by tax that is only just out, but they are interested in tax that is months out. Try and keep proof of postage, and any other evidence of purchase and you should be alright. DVLA systems do have a bit of a habit for not instantly updating.
  9. I have an auto Focus so think the app is brilliant. Cold mornings? Start the car up via the app so it has warmed up and ready to go, the opposite in Summer. I used in lockdown to keep the battery topped up. I use it to see how many miles I have done each month. I use it to send locations to the SatNav. Look it up indoors and it transfers when I get in the car. It sends me an instant alert if the alarm goes off. Really good thing, I would miss it if it wasn't there. I have the latest version and it shows oil life in % as well as expected date, tyre pressure, mileage and
  10. That was it. Thank you for looking and taking the trouble to upload, much appreciated.
  11. Perfect, thank you, I didn't realise there was a brochure with the Active as 'coming soon'.
  12. Hi, Thanks for uploading that, I hadn't seen that before. The brochure I was after is the pdf version of picture 1, which only has the ST Line and ST Line X in the "sport" section (picture 2). The most recent version (picture 3), which I have downloaded from Ford website includes the full ST. I hope this makes sense?? Cheers. Stuart.
  13. Hello, Does anyone have a PDF copy of the original MK IV Focus brochure, the one that hasn't got the ST model in. If so, would it be possible to upload a copy to this forum. Many thanks Stuart
  14. I have got an ST Line X auto. Love it. This was my first choice. My very close second choice would have been the Active. There is one round the corner and it looks really nice. Ive only driven an MKIV ST Line X, so can't comment on other specs, but have driven every MK of Focus and found them to be good drivers, I can't imagine that the Active would be one car in 20 years that doesn't drive well. So, looks good, drives well, if you can get one within your budget... Get one is my advice...
