      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

    Ford focus 1999 plate zetec for sale MOT until augustTax until end of the month ONE PREVIOUS OWNER full service history 50% ford main dealer 50% independent garage. Both keys(standard key and blue ford key) i have all the books, guides and many receipts with the car showning working that has been carried out. new clutch put in two days (with two year warranty) ago along with full service cost £300 Valve clearances done at 100k New anti roll bar links and a oil service was done 2 months ago It has 17 inch momo alloys with perelli tires all round Clear indicator lenses, bumper and side repeaters sportex race tube exhaust put on recently as old one had hole on it. Ford factory fit rear spoiler, still worth £100 orginal 6 cd changer with cassette and radio( also has steering wheel controls)Traction control Zetec sport seats Front and rear heated screens Very good car, I have owned it for nearly one year dnd it has given no problems at all. It has a few scratches in the rear bumper and could do with a new passenger mirror as the old one is cracked( stil works fine) It has a private plate on the car, this will come with the car if the asking price is met. Don't let the mileage put you off, it sounds and runs better than a 50k car and looks it too, really shines up when cleaned. I'm sad to see this go, but I would like a Honda civic coupe, around 1998 to 2000 plate, may consider a swap or part exchange Thanks for looking. offers accepted! p.s. may put on one years road tax at buyers cost price drop! MAY SWAP OR PART EXCHANGE FOR CIVIC COUPE!

    hi, i was reading the haynes manual for my 1999 focus and it says and shows that the 1.6 has the zetec se engine but mine sayes zetec s on it, is this meant to be right? I believe there are a number of different engines, mine is a zetec se. is yours a silver cam cover?
