      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.

A roads are the best I was expecting better from a 6 speed box my old 09 tdci 1.6 DPF same 60 miles journey to and from work I was getting 53-55! What's yours been like for interior rattles and creeks?

  4. Mk3 Focus Steams Up Mega Easily All The Time

    Hi Jamie, this very rainy weather I was finding my mk3 screen was constantly steaming up, I have rubber mats, mine and passengers wet shoes was causing puddles on the mats. I didn't use the aircon instead I used the hot air blower set it to screen and feet on hot this seemed to eventually sorted it. I do travel to and from work every day an hour each way so the heat did eventually dry it out.
  5. Mpg Question

    I'm getting 49 mpg but I've done over 5500 miles I was getting 45ish in the early days, it's just starting to improve, I don't expect 50+ until over 10k miles. If your not happy return to Ford they can recalibrate the fuel system but I'd wait till you reach 10k and see if it improves. Regards, Jack.
  6. Mpg Question

    Cheers guys, keeping it as it is at the moment but I would like better speakers and I like the new headlights with the LEDs, I also like the Zetec s look so I may look what options I have in changing the exterior look.
