  1. I used to use the Lidl stuff - was really good quality. Haven't seen it for a few years though 😞
  2. Aye - it does sound a bit iffy... Obviously, the air is warmed by the engine coolant, so stands to reason that when the engine is off, it won't be as warm. But, I would expect that the air should stay warm for a few minutes after engine-off. Unless the coolant isn't particularly warm to begin with - which could be an indication of a failed thermostat. Or possibly an airlock in the coolant system. Does the engine temperature appear normal? (Not sure how it's setup on the Focus - I know some cars have the temp run the ECU, so they display cold, normal or too hot, nothing in between). Is the air as hot as you'd expect when it is running? Any strange gurgling sounds from behind the dash? With the bonnet up, and engine warm, are the coolant hoses all similar temperatures to the touch? (Usually big rubber hoses). With a cold engine, it may also be worth giving them a squeeze - you might feel/hear if there's any air in them. My only experience with dodgy car heating was on a Mk2 Punto with the notorious 1.2l FIRE engine. It went through thermostats almost as quickly as headgaskets....

    I am now the proud owner of a laser engraver. A 40w chinese import (quite a good quality one looking at it). £400 machine for £75 😁 Now to start modding it...

    Whilst looking at mortgages, our first adviser required bank statements...but they wouldn't accept electronic copies. Downloaded PDF printed, scanned and emailed was perfectly fine though? ...oddly enough...I didn't continue using that adviser much longer...

    The weather across Biscay. I'm stuck in Gibraltar on a small ship that can't sail in the current 6m swell in Biscay. Admittedly, there are worse places to be stuck...but some of the locals are brazen thieves!!

    +1 for Spigen. Had mine on my S7 for ages - done well to protect the phone!

    Thames Trader truck

    I'm going to go out on a limb here...and say probably not. You're the first person I've seen on here talk about a Thames Trader - we're mostly Fiesta, Focus & Mondeo people on here

    However, there doesn't seem to be much consideration about the rest of it... My first car was W624 KNA It was my mother who noticed that if you moved the W and read it backwards it spel...I'm sure you can work it out lol

    The smaller the car the worse it is! Now that I drive a van - I have very little trouble with bullies on the road. Idiots in front is another story... I took my potential Mother-in-Law's Smart coupe for a spin the other week - literally a run I've done a thousand times with no issues - 2 miles maybe - I lost count of how many people were being knobs! We had a hard time convincing our conveyancer that we don't have a conservatory. To the point that on the phone to her I quite literally said "Not being funny love, but I'm stood in the garden right now...I can see a lot things, but none them come close to being a ***** conservatory!!" Don't get me started on the solar panels!! For the record, I rate "Premier Property Services" at 1/10.

    Yeah...you definitely don't want to replace a tube light with a van...not the most efficient 😁

    House purchase is finally complete!! And we've already started wrecking the joint 😁 The former landlord (partner's brother) is coming to shift some of his old crap, so I cleared a little bit if ivy from the entrance to the old orangery. Unfortunately...it wasn't really all that safe...the ivy brought the pillars down with it 😂😂 The wisteria and the raspberry tree (it's at least 40 years old and no longer fruits) are going along with the ivy!!

    Case 2: Actually, the reason for that is habit - get the kids in the habit of donning their hi-vis vest before cycling. It's a muscle memory thing. We do similar when we conduct our drills and exercises - BA sets on, hoses rigged and charged, all equipment run out to the scene etc
