    What are these things?

    As long as you got alloy wheels, they should be fine.

    1.8 Duratec MPG

    I have a 2010 Zetec S 1.8 duratec, and I typically get around 28-30 mpg a week when I reset the computer. And that's driving really sensible, changing gear at 3000rpm, and only doing 65-70mph on dual carriageway.

    Side light bulb 510 (W5W)

    Because it's free I thought I'd use it as a pre mot, don't think it has anything dangerous wrong with it, only had wishbone rubbers worn but not dangerous condition advisory last MOT, fingers crossed 🤞

    Side light bulb 510 (W5W)

    Cars booked in to Halfords for MOT next Monday (it was the, by a 50 pence sponge and get a free MOT offer) so needed to get some bulbs as one is out on mine, wish I'd waited a day or two now as you guys have come up with some good suggestions 😥 nevermind

    Side light bulb 510 (W5W)

    Thanks for the advice guys, I've gone down the safe route and bought a pair of osram cool blue intense, these are what I had fitted to my car 3 year's ago. Thanks again 👍
  6. Can anyone recommend a nice white set of the sidelight bulbs for a Focus MK2.5. Don't won't to pay a fortune, nor do I want cheepy eBay led's that supply you with 10 bulbs in the hope that at least two of them work. Thanks in advance, Chris.

    Number Plates

    To be honest Clive, there are far to many "illegal" plates out there, I wish more of them would get pulled. I got pulled twice by Dyfed Powys police in the early days of having my plates (incorrect Font and spacing) and subsequently had my plates revoked by the DVLA. It took my 8 months of pleading and grovelling to the DVLA to get them back, and was told if I was stopped again with illegal plates, I would loose them forever. Since then, I've compiled with the law regarding my plates, but I get so bitter when I see illegal plates now, I think how is he allowed to get away with it ?

    Worst Mods You've Ever Seen?

    I once seen a late type Granada while out spectating on the Wales rally GB, it had painted on numbers on the door and a catering size baked beans tin somehow attached the the back box, among other hilerious stuff, I nearly went off the road in histerics when it went by. The guy honestly thought he was Colin McRae.

    WeatherTech mats.... Good deal on

    Personally I couldn't justify £100 for car mats, My daughter bought me a nice set of rubber ones with a honeycomb design with red piping and focus logo nearly 3 years ago, drivers one looking a bit tired now but can't find them anywhere now. They were £29 for a full set. Gutted.

    Mk3 convert rear drums to discs?

    The centre cable from the handbrake to the second cable should be the same, the cable that runs to each wheel is the one that's different.

  14. That's an even better one, and cheaper 👍
