  1. Airtec stage 3 intercooler, mountune sports cat, braided brake lines, lowering springs, replacement air filter for my induction kit and a splitter kit 😐 my boot strut did however pop out and almost took my eye out, luckily Nathan was stood away at the time 😂
  2. Arranging meeting could be difficult unless we all met up at a McDonald's 🤣 which it's always rammed with cars on the day, I'm staying in a hotel the night before to save on the stress of driving all the way. Hope the weather improves soon, I really need to wash my car before I go
  3. I'm needing to change my subframe as it seems I have a incredible amount of rust on my subframe, the rest of the car has zero rust but the subframe is starting to fall apart, so before I buy another subframe are all of them the same? Can't find a part number because the rust has eaten it 😕. Cheers.
  4. Tickets booked for 3 of us, was on the fence due to getting a new car September, guess ill have to buy parts for my Focus ST 😆
  5. As a regular driver going about an ordinary commute I dislike smart motorways, but as a recovery operator I much prefer them as it's a lot safer when recovering a stranded vehicle, the lanes need monitoring more as when people break down it takes too long to get that particular lane closed, but I would rather recover a vehicle from lane 1 than the hard shoulder, nobody can drive in a straight line every now and then we all get a bit close to the lines in the road, I've lost count how many times I've been almost killed by someone drifting over into the hard shoulder, whereas with a lane closure it funnels the traffic slowing it down and speed limits being in place. I do think they need to be reworked and more thought needs to be put into them though. So I am neither for or against smart motorways.
  6. FIXED: Anyone who has this same issue just loosen off the jubilee clip where the silicone reducer is and the 2 bolts on the crossover going into the engine block, give the whole thing a wiggle while pushing down and get it far enough down it sits flush on top of your engine block. Tighten everything up and you're good to go. Hope this helps someone.
  7. So fitted my new crossover today, before fitting I also adjusted my turbosmart 50/50 to max hardness setting and only turned back about 3 quarters (maybe this might have something to do with it) So on acceleration I can feel a vibration sort of buzzing sensation coming through my accelerator onto my foot, in the morning I'm going to put my turbosmart to how it was before to see if thay solves it, but if you guys can think of anything else I could check incase that's not the problem drop me your suggestions 🙂 No lights have come on and the car feels the same to drive minus the new sensation coming through the accelerator pedal. Thank you.
  8. That's priced quite low not a bad deal, you'll struggle getting the price down, I've had mine around 2 years now and still love it, sat on 57k not increasing since I'm out of work for the time being 😂
  9. 4 rabbits and 1 doggo, dog is 2 years old rabbits are between 6-7 year olds, love them all
  10. I'm currently getting 49mpg but my journeys only consist of motorway runs mainly, only tend to do around 700 miles per month since changing jobs due to it staying parked up for the 3 weeks I'm at work, so will likely only cost me an extra £30-£40 a month in fuel. Time to start looking at selling my car 😂
  11. Thanks for the input, I'm touching the bolsters on my mk7 but only just, on the topic of fuel economy I expect it's around 30mpg maybe a little more on a 200 mile motorway run. Going to have a serious look around should have one by time ford fair comes round hopefully 😀
  12. Working for BDV Recovery, currently on the M1 between J12 and J16 love it, the b road blasts are a main reason I love the fiesta but might be worth trying for a 24 hour test drive with each car Saw the Puma in Manchester had a sit inside it lovely inside, outside I hated it at first but its grown on me, like the idea of being able to fill the boot space with water to clean my dog's paws 😂, the price difference is quite substantial might see about trying to get a test drive for 24 hours with each one
  13. I sort of need the practicality now I'm working away from home, I take everything from my bedding to my tv and xbox, but i do manage to fit everything in, having the space would be nice though.
  14. I'm in a position to buy either of these cars now, I'm stuck between practicality and go kart fun, I currently have Fiesta ST mk7.5 and i love it but its lacking the tech. I know the focus has the extra power and larger engine but the fiesta has that feel that made me fall in love with it. Either one I get will be petrol with the performance pack and sunroof. Help 😭
  15. Shouldn't sound like it is struggling, only time you would really need to drive the car around them revs is if you need the power, e.g overtaking, cars are louder when cold once warmed up a bit they tend to be okay
  16. If your only going for them 2 then i'd say Revo, other than that Laird Performance
  17. Most likely you will get another 30+ miles but do you really want to play that lottery?
  18. Mountune or miltek, power flow are very hit and miss from what I've seen and heard, check out outlaw exhausts too, they are amazing
  19. Hello, if you want me I am currently away for work until 2nd August PM me and I can get back to you.

  20. Have a look at Davanti tyres pretty cheap and decent
  21. Lovely car you have mate, I'd say stay with the stick on vents as that's far too beautiful to cut out for real ones. At least you can take them off if you ever decide to sell your lovely motor
