  1. oh rite sounds good, is that a chip or like the dyno Does a chip do the engine any good and what if the mileage is quite high my 57plate focus has 112,000 miles. I seem to buy them cheap with the high mileage..
  2. sorry not had a ford before so dont know to much about them. So whats bluefin. you still on about diesels?,because thats quick for a cheap diesel. I bought the 1.6 because there cheaper to run, diesel and tax but end up paying more on parts and mechanics oh well its getting traded in.
  3. whats the 1.8 like and chipped, didn't even know what a dpf was until i went to the garage now i know a lot about them lol. Why are 2.0 turbos prone to go aswell?
  4. Going down the motorway and lost most of the power. Got towed home then straight to garage in the morning. Soon as mechanic seen the diesel particulate filter he said thats your problem these cars are prone. Took it apart anyway and yes he was right he does them all the time, so also need a new turbo as there was no indication its was on its way out. Anyone else had these problems. Anyway i got brand new turbo 6 month warranty £290 DPF £200 He said because they were cheap it may last 6 months. So heres my main question sell or NOT? Heard the ones without dpf are slugish but they are reliable just like a bit of power.
  5. Sorry gav misread The main thing is light, if you do it in bad light it looks great until you take it to sunlight and it looks a mess and full of bubbles ive done it. You cant loose if you put your mind to it, if theres bubble just lift and do that patch again. You dont need much heat for quite a flat surface dont stretch to much if you can help it. Leave about 5mm on all edges and this is where you need ya heat to bend the vinyl to the back of the surround. I find that when your applying the vinyl press quite hard and it doesn't leave any bubbles, push to soft and bubbles stay well they do on the cheap vinyl anyway. Can get the dearer vinyl bubble free but you dont need it just practice with the cheaper vinyl, bubble free = easy way out. Hope this helps oh and always have a sharp blade
  6. charlie if ya gona use a stanley make sure its a new blade, I would use the blade on its own but put quite a bit of tape around the bit you are using and be careful lol. Its all delicate work anyway with the blade. I will put the youtube videos on for ya 2moz the ones i have saved. If you dont want to take the stereo out you can just do it in the car. If you have the squarish stereo theres just 2 screws behind the stereo and also Gav if its the same as mine the curved stereo it all just pops off without moveing any stereo but your focus is newer than mine so maybe different
  7. Am going the do all the black on my mine in the silver carbon i have the focus before yours so it will be fully coded then with the touch of carbon, including the spoiler :). Hydro dippings the one now you already have the base coat, I would need to spray mine silver then apply the hydro film
  8. Rhino its got to be silver carbon vinyl on yours would look very smart. You haven't got any black trim on yours for the black carbon to match which is a good thing as full colour coded looks the best.
  9. Charlie a lot of ebay power sellers put there price right up when they sell hundreds, Its still on my bought in ebay for 1.99 and 75p postage so if you let them know before you buy that the price is way wrong and your friend got it for this price because these were the best quality cheapest ones hope the helps, if not let me know and i will look for the best ones for around that price for ya. Think the carbon bonnet lips are cool ;) should be easy enough just carbon rapping

    Carbon Wapping Ideas

    Yeah really easy push the leather gaiter down and pull the surround out take ya time though as they feel brittle to me. Then the silver piece also separates which gives you the nice finish when put back together. And Cheers for the comment

  12. Ya dont need 1 vauxhalls are top cars with hardly any problems, and fords the newer there getting the worse there getting my sis has brand new s-max on finance and when you go to start it there no power and its happened when there nowhere near home, She has lost confidence in it now and said she wants to end the contract and they said you cant, if we can fix it you have to keep it. Its a very nice motor but cant drive far without out thinking its not gonna start up its happened 3 times and they just set it all up on the computer but its only a quick fix
