  1. I always buy genuine Ford rubber , I know they are more expensive, but are the right shape with the fixing holes to stop them sliding about (fronts only). The new ones on the mk4 focus are the best yet, are like trays and to me offer the best protection . Better than any of the other focuses.
  2. Had to get new plates as just bought some personalised plates lol. Didn't want to drill the new plates and this seemed the best solution for the front . Also a bit more secure than sticky pads on the car. Also I have bought the "bling" gel plates.
  3. Have got these:- DEZENTOFIX License Plate Frame (2 Pieces) | *NEW* Offer | SLIM Frame | License Plate Holder aesthetic | Number Plate Holder | Bestselling Registration Plate Holder on
  4. Just to update, went to main dealer yesterday and technician showed me on laptop that Ford is aware of issue and working on a update. Hopefully will not be too long.
  5. Will have a closer look this weekend. ***** annoying on a new car , the back of the car has proper nuts in boot lid. The front has cheap plastic lugs.
