      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. You're up near Aberdeen right? I'm in Dorset!
  2. I was just looking at golfs and passats...! I've had a few golfs so I feel totally happy buying second hand vw's.. Good call!
  3. I think I'll leave it! thanks for all your comments, it did seem a bit too good, high mileage had me worried I guess.. So I'm putting my budget up to £2500.. And hoping to find a sub-100k diesel preferably ghia from 2001 onwards... I reckon I'll find something, I'm in no rush. Just not sure where to look I guess, gumtree eBay etc seem a bit dodgy although I have had luck in the past buying £500 golfs and the like.. Is there a wanted section on this forum somewhere? So thanks a lot anyhow, been a big help..
  4. Hi I'm looking to sell my 1987 fiat panda and buy a mondeo estate. I'm a decorator and I've kids now so it seems to make sense.. I don't really like Mercs or BMW and volvo seem to be a bit unreliable nowadays.. So my mate has a mondeo estate ghia 2l diesel. I have seen a couple on eBay that might fit the bill but not being very experienced mechanically I thought I should ask for opinions from people who know.. This is the one I like the best. 2004 140k miles £1895 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/171011672855?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649 Is that high mileage for a ford? Anyone got any comments? Thanks Matt
