      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.

  4. ​Hi my names Aaron i recently acquired a 1997 radiant red escort GTI. I'm 27 from Scunthorpe I've got 3 kids. I work as a national newspaper distributor so driving is my work and now my pleasure. When i got the it had 53.677miles on the clock unsure if this is genuine as only got around the last year service history other than the first 6 service stamps. This states there was 39.000miles in 2003.
