      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. HID Kit fitting

    Am well aware about the legality - no different to high wattage bulbs. Never heard of anyone getting into trouble for HIDs. Apply some common sense, no glare, no problem. ;) That aside (lets not go on about it): What a long day - changing the brakes was a nightmare! I don't think the wheels have ever been removed and it was a real wrestling match just getting them off. Then the same again with the blasted discs. Took some 3-4 hours in the end! HIDs also fitted. Am well pleased. Took lots of piccies and have written a step by step guide. Just got to edit/upload piccies etc. The best thing I've done to my car! B)
  2. HID Kit fitting

    Nobody? Looks like I will have to get the camera out when I install them for a step-by-step guide
  3. What oil type and any tips on oil change?

    5/30 and 10/40 are hardly worlds apart.
  4. What oil type and any tips on oil change?

    cheers guys I'm sure I've got some 10w40 knocking about and was hoping to use that. Not much between them so may well still use it ? It's only a 1.6 runabout
  5. After Marlet Xeon Kits

    Get a good quality kit and you will never have a problem. Have always used www.superhids.co.uk on all the cars I've had. Brilliant kits and great service too. Always passes MOT. I use 6000k ones. Wouldn't own a car without HIDs now.
  6. HID Kit fitting

    Any tips? I've brought a SuperHIDs slimline kit which is plug and play. Do I need to remove the headlamps or anything? Will be looking to do this tomorrow as I've got the day off.
  7. Am doing an Oil change on my 2005 1.6 Focus tomorrow. Not sure what oil to get though? 5w30? 10w40? Any special instructions for the oil change or is it just the standard method?
