  1. I don’t think that’s normal either, my 1.6 EB always runs hot (cooling fan often comes on after a journey) but the coolant doesn’t drop, it stays at max.
  2. The Focus will be bigger and more comfortable, but the Fiesta will be easier to park and lighter around town and feel nippier. The 1.6 N/A engine in the Focus is a bit slow, the EcoBoost units are much nicer in that regard. I think for the price of the Focus you can get a newer, higher specced model for the price.
  3. Perhaps I’m just being vain then 😜
  4. I’m not really sure how it broke, it’s been like that for 2 or 3 years, it does have a filling in it. I am tempted to have it removed but would ideally like to have all my natural teeth still at my age 😂
  5. I’ve had a bad toothache for a few days now, think I’ll be needing a root canal when dentists reopen, I only have half a tooth there and it often plays up 😢
  6. My MK3 1.6 EcoBoost is the same changing into second, I now just lift the clutch up much more slowly than normal. I think the 1.0 and 1.5/1.6 have the same box anyway.
  7. Found out from the guy I sold my old Focus to, that he got the heater fixed but the other week it blew the coolant out and destroyed the engine 😢
  8. Does anyone know if a Sync 3.3 APIM out of a MK8 Fiesta or MK4 Focus will work with a screen from a MK3 Focus? How easy is it to attach the APIm to the back of the screen if they are compatible. Also do I need the ACM out of a Titanium X in order to keep all my speakers working? Thanks 🙂
  9. @F0CUE the MK3 bonnets can be opened with the passenger door closed, seems to be a silly design in the MK4.
  10. My job still insists on paying my fuel money in cash 🙄. The new £20’s definitely look different, I like them!
  11. Banks are open, had to go to mine yesterday. They just have reduced opening hours and mine is doing a one in one out policy.
  12. As above, our 69 reg ST-Line has the modem, but wouldn’t say you’re missing much by not having it.
  13. They’re the CEUK ones, lost patience with waiting for the Autobeam ones to be back in stock. That’s interesting, bet he enjoyed being the centre of attention with them! Definitely a worthwhile mod.
  14. That is something I'm certainly considering, might get some of the facelift ST-Line or ST-Line X rims, or the 17 inch upgrade wheels from later pre-facelift MK3's.
  15. They certainly are! Think the black lens looks really good with the white of the car too!
