at least my eyes weren't deceiving me!

As for a remap, quite a few members on here are running bluefin, but you will also hear good things about Dreamscience, Code Red, Mountune - personally I have a Pumabuild map on mine.

If you haven't already, get yourself signed up as an Owner Member (£10 bargain!) and you can read all about the different maps available

its just the clutch / turbo im worried about as the fabia vrs's chewed turbo's and clutches when mapped.

If the focus has a relatively strong OEM clutch and Turbo i think i'll just choose Bluefin



??

p.s im tight... will have to save pennies for Membership

well went to test drive the focus today

and all was not well


turbo kicked in as you'd expect....

then hit 4 k .... boost guage hit the red and it just stopped.... was like hitting a brick wall.... was the same in every gear
so i suspect a bust turbo....

so i walked away... AVOID!!

HOWEVER

i went up to Glasgow and picked up an 06 with 33k ST3 with the heated leathers in blue for

£10,500
