  • Owns:MK3 Focus ST

After 4 and a half years of ownership I’ll be saying farewell to my 2013 Focus ST3, its being traded towards a mk8 fiesta st. Unfortunately I started a new job with a car allowance and the focus doesn’t qualify to receive it.(I was going to pocket the money and keep my focus) I’m gutted it’s going but also gutted that the dealer will be sending it to auction! I loved the car since owning (apart from when it had low compression on C1)

 

thanks to everyone who’s helped out with advice and very useful experience.

Cheers Jason, had the car for a 30 minute test drive on my own. it’s like a little go kart, standard exhaust pops & burbles which is nice. I’m already looking at the Mountune M235 to turn it into a little pocket rocket

I love them pops & burbles on it and a remap will make it a pocket rocket for sure and will handle like a go kart.Will be more of a fun drive than the Focus I have no doubt...enjoy !

Do it......it’s a great map which turns the car into a little wolf in sheep’s clothing!

Mine has been running M235 since its inception........

Will be doing it 100% after a few months, need to make sure the car doesn’t have any hidden issues so I can go back to Ford. It’s a shame Mountune isn’t backed by ford warranty anymore.
