Really happy with it, just done a 200 miles trip and averaged 60mpg. Pulls so much better than my old Fiesta as well. Anyway here are the pictures:







Hopefully after xmas I'll be booking it into AMD or get Bluefin for it. Little things that will happen in the next month will be panel filter and eibachs.

Does anyone know if the ST rear diffuser fits my ZS bumper?

Thanks
James

Looks good mate, I wouldn't say things like 60mpg on here
it's almost like you are swearing


When my car was at Profile recently I had their Modded Diesel Focus as a courtesy car, Gary said it had a remap on etc, was a nice drive and certainly looked the part with 19" wheels.

I used to have a Passat Sport with a remap, went like stink, the torque was great fun, well I thought so but unfortunately the clutch didn't .

Cheers

I would leave the current diffusor on the car, looks good


Yea I like the diffuser just seems a bit out of place due to its colour. Not sure whether to paint it blue or black yet

I'd paint it but dont swap it its a lovely car as it is, I hate it when people buy a car thats fine as it is and then try and make it something its not.

Lovely motor and with 60 MPG would you like a swap lol!!!

Get it mapped.

My Dad has the C-Max 2.0TDCi with the Code:Red remap.*

It's bonkers quick, and with awesome fuel economy.

I can't recommend it enough!!

Do code red do re-mapping for the 1.8tdci then? I got in contact with them and they said they dont supply anything for the 1.8.

My next option is Bluefin, as I could take it off if the car needed warranty work doing.

Excellent question.

I have no idea.

If Profile Automotive have said that there isn't a Code:Red product for the 1.8TDCi, then I guess there isn't!!

That said, any kind of remap from a reputable manufacturer is going to be pretty epic. Generally speaking, remapping a diesel will give you more "smiles" than remapping a petrol car......

Oh ok, will just go for the bluefin then. It states I will get the same gains as a normal remap.

what engine size is it? obviously a tdci but sorry to say you wont get anywhere near 60mpg. unless you drive at 50-60 on the motorway for extremely long runs......with out breaking.

Bets focus tdci engine is the 1.8 for mpg but at best you will get 40-42round town at a puss and around 48-50mpg on the motor way.

Nice car tho hope you enjoy

On my daily commute which is 45miles each way at 70mph I average about 54-55mpg. I'll try and get a picture tonight of the reading. Its the 1.8tdci by the way.QUOTE(Ju2008 @ 12 Nov 2009, 02:42 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>I'm sure that numberplate is meant for another Ford model...
Gorgeous colour!!! Loving that mpg figure too!Yea I know lol, the Ford dealer tried saying it was a unique number plate because of the 'KAA' maybe they thought that was a good selling point
I'm going to get my private reg on there soon anyway.
