      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. Focus Built In Handsfree

    How does it mute the radio? Do you have to wire it into the car or is it a attatch and go? Sounds like yours is the one to go for :)
  2. Focus Built In Handsfree

    Have you had any problems when at high speed? Some reviews on other makes said their rubbish on motorway?
  3. Headlight Bulbs.

    Haha, most people have a real big hatrid for them, personally if they light up the road and dont full on blind people i dont mind them, them headlights go really well with a hid kit, you can set the beam up so it looks just like xenons :) theres a couple of vids on youtube
  4. Focus Built In Handsfree

    Thats a lot cheaper than i expected, think ill get one rather than ignoring calls. Does seem a shame to display the buttons and them be useless "/ cheers though :)
  5. Headlight Bulbs.

    I dont know what most of you think to this, and dont say im an a** for having them :) but i bought hid's for £40 off ebay (new) had them in about a year and still going strong :)
  6. Focus Built In Handsfree

    I have the 2010 focus, on the dashboard i have the buttons for handsfree but when i press them it mutes the radio? Took it to the dealer where i bought it from (arnold clark) they had no idea and said go to ford; i went to the local ford garaged and their dealer was stumped, he suggested it comes with the car as they all share the same dashboard? Any clues as to why the buttons would be there? Can you wire it up to work or do you have to buy an aftermarket kit?
  7. Focus 1.6Tdci Remaped

    Agreed with tdcist but my me they will only give the mot if the car is road worthy, they just cut a few corners like emissions if the smoke isnt bad. My last car was on its last legs and he passed it but advised, and really advised i get a new exhaust (for the next mot because it wouldnt pass next time)
  8. Focus 1.6Tdci Remaped

    Boooo haha, ill wait untill they change the law then, however i have a few garages near mine that will pass you as long as the cars fit to drive. They're not fussed about the rest haha
  9. Focus 1.6Tdci Remaped

    Ohh... I thought dpf wouldnt be affected? Thought it was maf or sommet? Was planning around that time anyway :)
  10. Focus 1.6Tdci Remaped

    Had my foot down earlier, its picked up now, a lot quicker. Maybe the ecu is just settling down? Well dpf removal is planned next so i can get a better map then
  11. Focus 1.6Tdci Remaped

    Okay cheers :)
  12. Well got my car remaped today and well..... Im not impressed? Its smoother granted, mpg seems worse on flats but better uphill? :S and it doesnt feel any faster? The guy said to allow a couple of days for the ecu to fully kick in. Anyone else experienced this? Id have thought 109hp to roughly 137hp would make a massive difference?
  13. Focus Remap Issue?

    Okay cheers :) thanks for help
  14. Focus Remap Issue?

    Nice one, thanks for your help. My heart hasnt sunk as much now. Ive got a family friend who owns a garage so regualr service wont cost as much :) Any recommendations on what to do with the air filter? Heard a performance panel filter will give an extra 3-5nm of torque?
  15. Focus Remap Issue?

    Well hes coming back this weekend to (if i can quote correcly) place 6 or 8 pins? On the ecu which bypasses any security. Should be done in about an hour. Only problem i have then is ive heard the turbos on my model (2010 with dpf) are crap and blow easily? I was plannimg on getting a dpf removal later on and remap done again but if the turbo isnt up for it i dont know what to do?
