      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.

  1. Did this on my old MK3, the rear skirt, side skirts and spoiler are bolted & clipped on, the front one is similar BUT, mine needed to be bonded on as it didn't fit flush with just the clips etc. I think I got a tube of something from Homebase
  2. Farewell Focus!

    Technically it's a Zetec with mostly ZS bodykit, and ST side skirts ;)
  3. Farewell Focus!

    Not been on in a while but I'm sorry to say that me and my MK3 Focus have parted company! I traded it in for a Mercedes A180 Sport a couple of weeks ago... I loved the Focus to bits and got it looking how I wanted it but at 4 years old and with doing 75 miles a day it was starting to get a bit rough round the edges. Got a good deal on the new one so it only came to £10/month more than the Focus and over 3 years instead of 4 I'll still lurk around the forum as we have two Fiestas in the family, and I'd love to see my Focus on here again with its new owner enjoying it as much as I did!

  4. Happy Birthday jimrex!

  5. Ambient Lighting Problem

    Not specifically true... Some early Zetecs like mine and the OP's did have the titanium overhead console with sunglasses holder and ambient lighting infrastructure in place. I wondered if ambient lighting could be activated, and after playing around with the relevant setting in the IDS software, mine was activated and instantly illuminated. I believe Ford then later changed the Zetec so it only had the ultrasound alarm sensors in the headlining rather than the full titanium goodies! Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  6. Only just seen your pics Alex, have to say your new Focus is very smart! That new grey colour really sets the styling additions of the ZS off nicely. How do you find the new touch screen system in comparison to the old Sony? Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  7. I have a MK3 1.6 TCDI, and commute a similar distance. With regular driving (I.e. not particularly gentle/economical), I get 53-55 MPG. That has dipped to 50-51 since the freezing temperatures though. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  8. I work for a fleet management company, we register our own vehicles anf essentially we're given a batch of 100 sequential registration numbers. Once we've used them up we get 100 more, it's all done online now. The dealer may, if they are kind enough, let you pick one from their allocation I guess.
  9. The dealer will have an allocation of registration numbers, he'll partially register the car against one of them on the Automated First Registration and Licensing system (AFRL) so that you can obtain insurance etc.

  11. Unused Filament In Rear Lights?

    Cost I guess, cheaper to source and fit on bulb for all rather than different ones for different trim levels... Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  12. Unused Filament In Rear Lights?

    Yup! You're bang on with your guess, mine are the same.
  13. 2015 Focus Facelift (Mk 3.5) Unveiled

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder I guess, everyone's opinions will differ but hey, that's why there is a wide choice in the car market :)
  14. I do a 75 mile round commute, I'd always be filling an RS up! ST diesel might be a good idea though!! Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app
  15. Sounds good, will be very interested to see the pics once you have it! What options have you put on it? In the process of selling mine at the moment... and it'll need to be replaced with something ;) Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app
