Talking Traded up!

Sold this one http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=265900

And got this one







I will probably keep this one mostly stock. I did order the electric focus lower torque mount, and a COBB air filter. May put a bit darker film on the windows at some point. Amazing value on these cars, I'm nothing but happy with the purchase!

Don't waste your money on the E-Focus RMM. There is a TSB out that addresses the issue (TSB 13-6-10 BANG NOISE HEARD AND/OR BUMP FELT FROM FRONT OF VEHICLE DURING A QUICK 1-2 AND/OR 2-3 SHIFT - UNDER MODERATE TO AGGRESSIVE ACCELERATION ) and the first reports from people that have had it done are very positive! It replaces all three mounts.

I would have taken it to the dealer for the TSB if you get the banging noise between shifts in low gears as Ford would pay to install the focus electric rear motor mount, new engine mount, new transmission mount.

Nice ST though.

Thanks for the info, I'd read some older stuff about it being in the works but I wasn't aware of the confirmed service bulletin. I ordered the E-Focus mount but it has not arrived yet. I will definitely refuse or return it, and have my dealership perform that TSB.
