Newcomer from Norway

Hello everyone!
I bought my first Focus in february 2016.
Its a late 2012model, and currently got 50'000km :)
Its the "sport" model, with RaceRed color, and full styling kit. Bought som HID lamps from ebay, with led DRL. And fitted some 18" S-max wheels.
I got the 1.6 econetic diesel with 115hp, but planning on getting it chipped up to about 140hp

Did a full paintwork correction last spring, and topped it with swissvax shield for the harsh norwegian enviroment

Apparently, since im a newcomer, i am not allowed to post pictures of it.

Welcome!

IDK what the Euro midsize diesels can do, turbo diesel has more possible response than a N/A gasoline type to tuning.

Too many spammers lately, so attachments are limited until after a few posts. Trying to discourage them, gives us time to delete without them ever getting their ads posted.

I guess i explained myself a little badly :P Was meaning an engine re-map :) The different providers in my area are about 150Hp and 340-350nm , a slight increase from original 115hp and 270nm :)

I am not sure whether is hould do it yet, or not.. I still have new-car warranty untill november this year, and i guess i void the warranty by remapping the engine... And should i get the egr-shutoff in the same errand? I've heard that the egr only cause trouble and breakdowns..

I suggest you come over to Norway some day! In summer, our country is spectacular! A trip with "hurtigruten", a old ferry used as cruise ship takes you along the entire west coast of norway, into the fjords and all :)



Looks like i finally was able to upload pictures of my car :)
