  1. Slipping/whislting Noise

    Hi thanks for the acceptance. I am here after some advice. I own a 2010 ford focus estate 1.6tdci. 31000 miles. Whenever i am in 4th/5th gear at between 45mph and 60mph i hear a noise that sounds like a belt slipping or air rushing out of somthing (its very hard to describe the noise) it does it moreso going uphill. Im going to take it to my mate who is a mechanic next weekend. Any ideas of possible areas to explore. Thanks tom
  2. Can anybody recommend any reasonably priced coilovers for my car? Thats the first job on the list. Website links would be most appreciated! Thanks Tom Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  3. Thanks for the heads up! Best start writing a to do list :) Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  4. Thanks jeebowhite. I shall contact the insurance company if i plan to change my wheels. My initial intention is to powdercoat the existing ones body coloured and fit lower profile tyres. This is just a first phase thing and then later on in the project if funds will allow I will look into a different set of wheels perhaps

  6. Thanks mate i shall look into those this evening. My car came with alloys, would i still need to inform the insurance? I plan to keep same size. Thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  7. Thanks lenny some of these ideas have certainly got me thinking. I am considering a change of wheel to an old style xr2 dish type wheel (ill find a pic when i get a sec) Is there fitment issues that anybody is aware of? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

    Amazing thread i have just got one of these cars in black! Complete newbie to modifying but your thread has given me lots to think about!!! Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  11. Hello I am a complete newbie to modifying cars and the do's and don'ts in terms of practicalities. Recently at the ripe old age of 26 got a ford focus estate in black. First time on my own insurance and car has a low mileage (less than 15000) so i want to do my first modified project It has always been on my to do list especially with an estate. But at the moment i am looking for ideas or suggestions of what i can do to it. My initial idea was to go stealth euro look. I want to keep the bodywork standard, but lower suspension and lower profile tyres but retain a 15inch alloy. Black out the read windows and a decent i.c.e install. At the moment it is very much a blank page for ideas, so any suggestion is great! Very minimal work would be done by myself as my friend works in a garage and would do the work there. I may put a build thread together once the project gets underway. I can upload pictures of the car tomorrow if that would help get the inspirational Juices flowing. Many thanks Tom
