    Things I Do Like

    I really like that last Wednesday I shocked my employer with my resignation. The resignation letter unlike the 1st one 2 years ago was totally blasting him for his crap. Started a new job today and only a 17 min walk .

    Focus , 10.4.2018

    The new focus looks very interesting in that short tempter clip. Must look at what engines ford will put in it. They should introduce hybrid in my opinion.
  4. Simply go for Fords premium speakers as fitted to titanium x. They'll be Sony types with a better speaker cone construction. The ones in your zetec s will be paper construction. The premium ones will also suit your headunit better.

    First diesel car

    I take it you have the mk3 focus? If so the engine is Not like the one in a 2006 fiesta. It's a well improved engine. If your journeys are short then make sure you give it a good run at speed once a week. That'll help the DPF. Otherwise enjoy it and get it serviced regularly

    Things you miss from the "GOOD OLD DAYS"

    The thing I miss most about the good ole days is just how little traffic there was then. Being able to drink a gallon of ale and still be able to walk straight and still have money left over. My motorbikes and how I could loone everywhere lol. There's more but they've already been stated above. What a damn good thread this is. A proper one that brings a smile and snigger. Good call Nik

    Buying mk4 Titanium X mondeo

    Hi Shiv. I've had the mk4 2.0 diesel. I hated it till I had it remapped from 140 to 170 horse. The economy got better but struggled to better 40mpg. I drive realistically and not to be economic. I've also had the mk4.5 tit x sport 2.2 diesel and 2.0 ecoboost. The 2.2 pulled like a train and flew. I never got near 40mpg and my trips were a 8 mile commute to work and once a week a 35 mile trip visiting. The 2.0 ecoboost brilliant but economy was low 30''s. I drive probably as you would so my figures are true and realistic. However if you drive frugally then you could add 7 to 10 mpg on my figures. Why a large car like the mondeo ? Haven't you considered the brilliant Focus?

    6 seater RS?

    Just goes to show that the mk3/3.5 focus has a superb boot.
  9. Hi m8. I think you'll get a better feedback if you post this in to the mk2 focus sections. Don't ask as I don't know how to move a post.

    Mobile app. Has it ended?

    Well I've just downloaded the app again and it can' be opened because of tapatalk. Oh well. I'll keep on trying.

    Mobile app. Has it ended?

    Thanks for your input Clive. Jonro I wasn't on about the tapatalk app but the FOC app itself. Nice one Steve. I'll have a go at really downloading the app. Fingers crossed.

    Mobile app. Has it ended?

    His Clive. If the app hasn't been supported or updated in Three? Years then how come it doesn't work? I've been on TalkFord longer than on here but that has ended coz tapatalk isn't supporting it. When the FOC app is opened it just states a 404 error. Can you either find out or direct me to where I can get an answer? The mobile enabled site is very good and almost identical to the lexis forum I'm on. Your effort is duly appreciated.

    What mods for 1.5 tdci 120ps focus

    When I was looking at tuning my mk3 1.6 diesel that I had I found that there were 3 different ways to tune the car. 1 was via a tuning box plugged into the end of the fuel injection tube (a real pig of a job but a few find it easy God only knows how tho). 2 a method like blufin which goes via the OBD 3 a proper remap where the ECU has to be removed so that it can be opened up to reach a part of the board not accessed via any socket or similar. This also disabled the recording part of the ecu where it records everytime something is done to it. Method 3 is the best and is the only choice of professionals. At the end of the day tho it's up to the individual and costs. How did I tune my focus you may wonder. I chopped it in for a mk4.5 mondeo titanium x sport ecoboost. Worth every penny.
