      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. Potential purhase Zetec S Mk2.5

    There's nothing 'performance' about a Mk 2.5 Zetec S, it's the same engine's found in normal Zetec's, (apart from the Zetec S 1.6 Ti-VCT 115bhp over standard Zetec 1.6 100bhp). It's all about the styling, they've got the ST skirt & spoiler with unique sporty grill, diffuser and alloy's. Inside extras are basically Aluminium Sport Pedals and Chrome Handbrake (possibly a gear knob). I will say though, having a car that looks better does make you feel better, even if you can't beat anyone in a race lol.

    Looks like a dream job where he lives. Don't forget the Subtitles
  3. Petrol mileage display

    The computer assumes an average based on your MPG, Usually mine will say 250 Miles on a fill up if all I've done that month is short work & shopping trips, When I've made a long trip to Cornwall and fill up down there it will say 380 Miles on a full tank, That's due to the long cruise down getting 46mpg, compared to my shocking sub 25mpg heavy footed short urban trips.
  4. another wow from me, You should re-title this post to 'The Real Grand Tour' Stay safe and keep posting amazing photos.
  5. clutch slip

    I've experience a few 'slips' myself, maybe a couple of times within a week or two then nothing for months, I think it was usually making a turn out of the street on a cold start.
  6. Things I Don't Like

    Looks like I'll be looking at a Speed Awareness Course Van Hire company has sent Work a Notice from the Police regarding 'Speeding - exceeded 60mph for a goods vehicle', I was driving a Vauxhall Vivaro (size of a transit) on the A180 Dual Carriageway, they clocked me doing 71mph. Apparently a van is only allowed to do 60mph on a Dual Carriageway where 4x4's and motor-homes can still do 70mph. The A180 follows on from the M180 (which is 70mph), it all looks the same apart from a hard shoulder. I even remember seeing the guy who clocked me, I knew I was 'only' doing 70mph so thought nothing of it. Thinking they'd got it wrong I've done some research, but it seems pretty black & white regarding vans and Single/Dual Carriageways (-10mph). I've never owned a van and I don't drive for a living, we only get a van to deliver to our shops once a week and it's not always me driving.
  7. Driver gives red light a miss!

    The last time I saw a car do that, they got hit by a HGV.
  8. Do you leave your car in gear when you park?

    There are very few places I park that are completely flat, I always put it in the opposite gear to the direction of slope.

    I feel like I'm in Final Destination at the minute and it's only a matter of time. 2017-12-03 Near Miss With Van Running Red Light Absolute idiot runs a blatant Red Light on a dual carriage way, other cars have clearly stopped and even I can see the red lights for them, I went straight through my lights and could have easily gone straight into the fool, I actually wanted that outside lane too but I didn't fancy being behind that van after that. Then to add the cherry he slows down on a green light slowing me down, leaving me stuck at the next lights (then a car runs that red too) 2017-12-09 Near Miss With Muppet Taking Shortcut This idiot thought he was clever avoiding going around the roundabout to turn right, nearly hitting me in the process, he didn't even look at me.

    2017-09-12 Ready Set Go Had a bad feeling about driving on the way home after seeing 2 cars that had been recently damaged, then 2 minutes later these muppets nearly collide. It is a poor set of lights coming the other way, you have to be right underneath them or further back, none are shown beyond the crossing. I've almost got caught out here, traffic suddenly stops and your left stranded not knowing what the light are showing, The Porsche driver might have just crawled passed the light as they were changing, then the muppet in the red car took off like he was on a drag race when the lights changed.

    2017-08-23 Give Way to the RIGHT Really hating this mini roundabout at the minute, I slowed to give way to the right (no-one else was turning), I then entered it but a car entering it later than me failed to give way, I don't think she even looked right, silly witch didn't even look at me when I was nearly in her door.

    2017-08-23 A Bit Late to Exit Some numpty ignores the lane signs for the past mile or more, he had about 5 minutes to get in lane, it's a very long approach and well signed. But he decides to practically stop traffic on the M62 to Exit at the last point, I guess 'luckily' the traffic was down to 40mph, Any quicker and I could see a big pile-up because of idiots like this.

    2017-08-23 A Toasty BMW A BMW got a bit toasty on M180 today, Looks completely burned out at the front when I passed it the other way.
  14. Philf1's Nitrous Blue Focus RS

    Very nice, I'll know it's you now if I see a Blue RS on my travels between Leeds & Halifax, I saw a Blue RS a few weeks ago coming off the M606 with a Y*66 plate, but that had standard silver alloys so I knew it wasn't you.
  15. Roundabouts!

    Was just going to mention you can get 2 Exits before 12 o'clock, you wouldn't indicate right for 'Exit 3' in this image, it's straight on. The basic rule of indicating after the last exit you don't want applies to all, we are just arguing between on Exit's and Direction's lol. I use the rule of indicating right beyond 12 to indicate I'm going around not off or through, beyond 12 you are going around it.
