Hi Guys,

I currently drive a 174bhp diesel astra and looking to buy a focus ST 225.

Anything i should be aware of ? Is high miles 70k + a problem ?

Also, spotted this on a advert from the exhaust.... is it normal.....?



Thanks for the advice...

That's an aftermarket diffuser and exhaust. Can't tell what malt though.

There's a good few members on here running high mileage. As long as there's service history to go with it I'd be happy. Probably change the cambelt for peace of mind. And upgrade to Kevlar cambelt.

Other problems are:

Alternator
Oil diaphragm
Cv joints
Driveshaft
Liners

There's a good buyers guide post in here somewhere. Find that and read it.

Hi Shane and
along to the club.

As Andy has said that is an after market exhaust and diffuser!

Here's a link to the thread Andy mentioned.
