1.6 Climate Pack with 63k and full main dealer history

Things to do in the coming months are to change the radio for my Kenwood one (this will be in the next week) and a nice set of either 17s or 18s to fill those arches
Also got a KN panel filter to go in this week and to give the bodywork a Jono job :lol:

Gave the bonnet and roof a good claying today just got the rest of the panels to do. Also going to give it going over with the polisher soon
Not sure if had been parked under a tree a some point in its life as the paint did seem rough in place but the clay got rid of most of this completely

There are a few little marks here and there but these are to be expected but I'm sure I can make them better 8-)

Got to say my 1.6 is fine to drive, its quick enough not to be a frustration.

I will admit I drive differently in the Focus, but I figured its actually the C2 which makes me drive differently as the same happens to my other half when she drives it.

when i chose this one i was looking for a 1.8 but this car is fitted with the later engine (115bhp) which isn't bad really

Keep the flaps, as jimbo said it saves all the nasty stone chips.
