  1. Hi All, Focus 2.0 Tdci Titanium

    I think I'll have a look for 7.5J wheels rather than limit the steering. Your car looks nice on those ST allows and lowered. I like the 3 doors but needed a 5 for practicality. Stoney871 - Cheers.
  2. Hi All, Focus 2.0 Tdci Titanium

    I'll have to check my log book and see if there is a DPF on mine then. Didn't realise it could be on the earlier models, it'll be coming straight off if there is. I'm constantly searching Ebay for panther black focus parts in the hope an ST is breaking. If you could put some pics up of it on the springs and ST alloys I'd much appreciate it. Do you get any scrubbing on the arches under full load or on full lock?

    I also thought the DPF never came in until '08 cars?
  4. Hi All, Focus 2.0 Tdci Titanium

    Its about £1200 worth of damage front left corner. No bodywork, just the alloy, tyre and some of the arm and suspension I think. Only £100 on the excess and protected no claims so its not the end of the work. I'm looking at some new alloys anyway. 18" gunmetal focus RS replicas £539 off ebay with tyres. I'd then like an ST rear spoiler. The springs will be Eibach, around £170 all round with 30 - 40mm lowering, it really makes a difference to the look of the car IMO as the arches are HUGE lol. The remap is going to be done by either Angel Tuning or R Tech in Hinckley. It takes the power up to around 165 - 170BHP and gives around 300lb/ft torque. I know the clutch will give eventually (as I wont be able to help myself putting the boot down ) but a new DriveTorque Stage 3 clutch kit will sort any future worries. I have read about the airtec being a good intercooler. Only around £250 as well, originally saw a Code Red one but its £600 (ouch). I'll keep you posted of any mods. I would like an ST kit but want to see how it sits just with rear spoiler, alloys and lowered.
  5. Hi, I've had my black Focus mk2 2.0 tdci titanium since the end of November, it is currently in the garage as I pranged it off a kerb when the snow hit last. I've banged or been pranged in the last three cars I've owned within the first month or so. I'll be keeping the Focus for some time I think because of this :) I really like the handling of the car but would just like to tighten it up a little bit and get a bit more poke. It does however have a "wooing" noise that seems to come from the top of the engine. It can be heard when moving and idleing. Sounds like air coming through something like when you blow over the top of a bottle. I'm looking at filter, lowering and remap when I get it back if anyone has any experience of equipment or reviews of any tuners. Thanks Andy
