  1. not got them yet, but I'm sure they will be :) and I had cool blue side lights too led sidelights do look smart - but they get too hot and cause that multicolour pulsing effect you sometimes see so I prefer normal bulbs instead Sent from my Nexus 7 using Ford OC mobile app
  2. I just got some here mate http://www.amazon.co.uk/Osram-Intense-64210CBI-Headlight-Bulbs/dp/B005Q0F9PA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1399291717&sr=8-1&keywords=osram+cool+blue+h7 cheapest i could find
  3. Durham Area

    Anyone in the durham area? (bishop Auckland) Iv sold my focus now and have a haynes manual for the mk2 diesel as well as some random interior lights which i had for an ongoing toy! it'll probably cost more than they're worth to post, so come get them if you want them! Tom
  4. Showroom Clean

  5. Showroom Clean

    i think gtechniq will be my next big spend! the rain repellent (G1 i think it is?) and the fabric sealant looks magic! lol need something to seal brake calipers though ..hmm..
  6. Cat Removal Need Help

    definatly yes. I have the set of halfords professional impact sockets - 6 point and great quality. I was changing an exhaust on an 05 punto the other month and slipped the sockrt , I thought it was already too late, but the 6 point socket got it straight off! Sent from my Nexus 7 using Ford OC mobile app
  7. Cat Removal Need Help

    are you using 6 or 12 point sockets? try a 6, i always find they dont slip as much (i said i find - i dont want some physics person coming stating why it makes no difference!) hahaa have you got an impact gun or anything like that?
  8. Lots of good deeds here. i think i would need to change my pants if i was walking around a dark cemetery and suddenly got lit up!! i had open heart surgery last month so the closest to a good deed iv managed is sorting the pants and socks into pairs! hahaa
  9. Egr Blanking Plate Recomendations.

    Unless anyone has anything bad to say about the slip in ones id go for one of those. I had the one with normal holes which required taking the pipe off and fitting - it was pretty awkward to maneuver the pipe back into place! and i just reused the old soft metal gasket on one side. I just put it in as a 'why not' type of thing - i cant see it being too important that it has a gasket
  10. my osrams blew after a year - but i covered 15-20k miles so i have no problem with a performance bulb blowing after that long i replaced it with the philips and i have to say that i much prefer the osram! it seemed a much cleaner and brighter light no news on lifespan as its only been a couple months, but i think even if it lasted twice as long id still go for the osrams!
  11. Painting Callipers

    http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=178927&highlight=painting+calipers ..might be a bit use ..he didnt remove them and everyone on the forum is OCD! hahaa
  12. Esso Diesel.

    morrisons is actually the best of the supermarkets - i got between shell and morrisons if i cant get to shell but would never go near tesco/asda/sainsburys stuff! just try esso for a couple tanks and see what sort of mpg/tank range you get with it compared to other
  13. 1.8 Tdci Sump Gasket

    Hi Sorry, i cant add anything to this other than wishing you luck But i think my sump plug thread is stripping so will need a new sump come next service - so if you could post an update when you've done it that'd be great! good luck!
  14. I Hate Car Insurance

    I think they're just random numbers!! Im 20 and my 1.8 focus is 600 for 10k miles - a lot, but at my age its a good quote! An example of how they're just numbers: they say to put relatives as named drivers to lower the price. My dad has maximum no claims, no points, has his own car and bike, and is a police advanced driver, rider and instructor - but last year my insurance was cheaper without him! Its a joke!!

  15. Ford Focus 1.8 Tdci Mpg Loss

    if theres no noticeable major mechanical fault I'd just suggest a full service ..at what rate is it dropping? a few mpg is quite normal when the temperature drops
  16. Improvements To Focus 1.8 Tdci

    realistically, you'll get stuck on about 140-150 - 99% of that increase will be through a good remap - much after that and it turns to just spending money ..if you're going all out go for a decat and straight through exhaust, remap, EGR blank ..moving deeper is the clutch and fly wheel upgrades and don't forget the brakes and suspension - I hate ppl who only go in a straight line :P
  17. Respraying Alloys Black

    If changing tires ruins the plastidip id suggest the fitters rig isn't too good? But either way, £25 of spray isn't bad for about 20k of driving is it? Sent from my GT-I9070 using Ford OC mobile app
  18. Showroom Clean

    I prefer MF mits to the lambs wool - i actually got the ones off ebay where you can get cloths for about 50p each and get a free mit with every 10! Haha But each to their own obviously :) I have 2 of those drying towels too. 1 for windows and one for paint - just in case i get any sort if wax on the towel i dont want it on ny windows. There's thousands of everything though, just play around mate :) Sent from my GT-I9070 using Ford OC mobile app
  19. Although cars are now capable of doing double that speed, the problem is the human reaction time - which if anything has got worse due to all the driving aids! If we did go to a higher limit i would let the immature side of me blast past it occasionally. But have you seen the difference in economy a few mph makes at the 60-80 mark? ..that would put me off a bit Sent from my GT-I9070 using Ford OC mobile app
  20. Respraying Alloys Black

    Yeh its fine all year around. I just ment that because a lot of people do it as a 'salt barrier' - have a search on here, there was someone last year did their wheels and a few bits of their focus Im waiting for the UK distributor to get the 'glossifier' in stock and then im doing my summer 18s :) Sent from my GT-I9070 using Ford OC mobile app

  23. Showroom Clean

    Iv spent ages researching the never ending noob topic of 'best snowfoam' haha Im wanting to try some Mr Pink next - but im just repairing a new pressure washer as a project atm which i think will make a big diff over my karcher :) Sent from my GT-I9070 using Ford OC mobile app
  24. Respraying Alloys Black

    If its to try a new colour or for winter id be tempted to try plasti dip first - im going to be doing my alloys with it soon :) Sent from my GT-I9070 using Ford OC mobile app
