  1. thanks its one more thing to try it must be something along those lines as the fact that they noise does not happen when the breaks are applied even slightly i will do that as soon as i can then i will get back to you thanks for your time to reply to this if this is the prob i will put this everywhere i know cos i know focus are famous for it just like the old mk2 for water ingress in the front passenger footwell lol fun times but would not change it for anyting
  2. Hi there folks how are you all doing i had the Focus 1.8 TDci . 2005 model and now i have the ST2 asbo orange 2005 model both were 55 plates as i say the car will make a rattle noise when going over bumps or uneaven surfaces but if you are using the breaks at all there is no noise. it sounds as if it is coming from underneath the car. any thoughts folks? there has been no suspension mods to the car or any mods at all read up it could be the caliper pins? any help would be great guys cos its really annoying me . i have to play the radio loud to ignore it thanks guys
  3. Yellow Headlights

    same as above. from what i hear is it the reflector that is causing the yellowish tint so i would go to a yard or store and get the head units and replace them. if you are wanting a brighter light have a look into Osram or Ring lights. they are up to 90% brighter and whiter they are HID as in the bulbs are filled with Xenon but not the true HID system. i used them in my old focus before i got the ST2 and it makes a massive diffrence. would also consider getting the DRL ( day running lights) they are nice and set the car off nice. one word of warning dont get the strips that are flexible and you just add them . vandals can easy just push them through and break them get the solid strips in a cluster and as for the angle lights. unless you are willing to spend silly money on the proper ones i would not bother. the cheap ones use four leds around the lights to make it look like the true ones but you can notice it a mile away hope this helps
  4.
