      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.

  3. Is It My Driving Style

    Hi I've recently bought my first diesel car a Focus Estate 1.8 TDCI 115ps on a 02 plate .69250 miles My problem is it seems very slow to pick up from 1200 - 2000 revs when pulling, but once over 2200 rev and the turbo comes in its off like a steam train and then its a race to change up a gear then we start the process again,I'm wondering if its my style of driving being a truck driver and being told to change up early and let the engine torque do the work or if the car as some sort of problem <_< Cheers
