    Official Polls & Surveys
    I usually had cars with high mpg, now I got myself a third car it is BMW e90 and it has 20mpg. Fuel price has hit 7$ for a gallon here but its low yearly mileage fun car so I am keeping it. Focus sits still at 35mpg. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Clutch wear is nothing strange at 100k miles...
  4. Buying a Mk1.5 Focus Zetec... 1.6 or 1.8 petrol?

    MK1 Focus
    Well I can make a comparison between 1.4 & 1.6 because I've had them myself. Actually I still own 1.6... Those are Yamaha developed motors. Motor weight is the same - 80kg for 1.4 & 1.6 (very light) Altough gearbox is the same clutch is not - 1.6 & 1.8 share the clutch & flywheel. comparisment...
  5. Buying a Mk1.5 Focus Zetec... 1.6 or 1.8 petrol?

    MK1 Focus
    Wow guys, that's pretty much for insurance. Luckily we have cheap insurance here, around $200 for a year. So if your car passes technical inspection, altogether comes around $350 for yearly registration. Do you also have to pass technical inspection for a registration every year? Or just the...
  6. Buying a Mk1.5 Focus Zetec... 1.6 or 1.8 petrol?

    MK1 Focus
    Wow... that much :( Go with 1.6 - even 2500 sounds way too much... Reg. Oil - sigma zetec motors 1.4 & 1.6 have bad oil rings from Kolbenschmidt so you can easily expect the same with 1.6 Gesendet von meinem SM-920F mit Tapatalk

  8. Buying a Mk1.5 Focus Zetec... 1.6 or 1.8 petrol?

    MK1 Focus
    I'd like to say a few words :) First: 1.4 motor in focus should be considered criminal offence. 1.6 is minimum and you see the difference immediately. Second: I'd say you compensate insurance with pricetag on the 15 year old Focus :) how much would it cost for a 2.0? (approx) Third: 1.6 has...

    5K (km) so far, that's around 3100miles it does about 1000km with 50 litres diesel, so it's still about 45MPG
  10. Your next vehicle's motor size

    Official Polls & Surveys
    If we look at it from the "city" perspective, I'd say you need nothing more than a 1.6 liter diesel 110hp with 220lb ft ;) Poslano sa mog SM-G920F koristeći Tapatalk

    I decided to get rid of the Focus mk3 due to faulty gearbox. New gearbox + repairs are around 8.000$ I will present new vehicle I ordered... it is Opel Astra. Price tag for this car was 29.000$ Very low consumption, I have 45MPG currently, mixed...

    General Car Chat Lounge
    o.k. maybe I was bit direct and unclear, sorry for that. Simple reason-Asconas are kind of regular here, every other household had one so not considered some special classic... Sedans like Senator on the other hand are/were rare cars. Also coupes like Monza (basically Senator coupe), and...

    Take a look at this transformation... Opel Kadett 55hp - upgrade to 316hp :) This has been done by a member of our local Opel club 10 years ago but its a memorable thing :) Poslano sa mog SM-G920F koristeći Tapatalk

    You are in DE currently? 1800€ for Ascona is too much... should went with Senator, or if you like coupes Opel Manta or Monza, Commodore... Opel was very good up until 1990' and it is bullshit ever since then... General Motors shut down Daewoo/Chevrolet branch of Opel and sold Opel to Peugeot...

    I can share my experience, doctor said I had fat liver so this made me think about myself. I decided to make a change: Two months ago ditched all the chips, chocolate, Coca Cola I was constantly eating in the evening... Only ditching this was MEGA step up !! Extra plus is just 2-3 days after...

    General failure on my 2013 Focus :( Highway - I was on a business trip travelling from Prague Czech republic to Vienna Austria, and some nasty noise started to appear from under the hood. Don't know how long it was lasting before I heard it because of loud music. It started something like...

    Landing the 300.000km (186.000m) mark on my old focus. I love this car, so it is 17 years old and not a single malfunction to it !! (other than several headlight bulbs, only regular maintenance) There is one thing I really have to mention, back in the days I bought the car, there was a shitty...
