    2016, 18000km and premium wheels. Advertised at 37990, but based on above I should probably revise my planned offer, maybe low 30s. . What year is yours?

    Mine's done 49,000km since August 2016.

    No issues, aside from a squeaking clutch pedal and a sticky window switch (both replaced under warranty in the first few months of ownership).

    Had the recall done (pressure tested OK, but they replace HG anyway) nearly a year ago & all good since.

    Does Ford put a sticker somewhere on the car to identify the HG recall is complete?

    You going to skimp out on replacement tyres when the time comes, surely not?

    I've just driven mine at night for the first time since winter and the sun going down early... man I hate the lights, 20m of light beam then darkness

    How do you find these tyres regarding them flicking stones and debris onto the car? I always hated this aspect with proper sticky tyres.

    My driveway is gravel. First hot run in the car and hear the stones being flicked up. Make sure to cool right down before enter dw now.

    There are MK2 Focus RS for sale more expensive than MK3 farken!

    At 11k kms on my Cup2s, they have bulk tread but are no longer sticky like they used to be... have started to understeer where they previously hooked.

    Its easy enough to adjust them up, there is a white adjustment Philips head between the radiator support and the light - right down the base of the light. I needed to bump mine up quite a bit after i installed the springs.

    They're supposedly self leveling too and some things can through them out of wack (NFI what though)

    Mine are adjusted up, as I only lowered the rear, which would add a little tilt upwards... but worth a shot... there are upgrades to a brighter light available

    Have you heat cycled these on track etc? I'm at 4k kms and if memory serves correct, about 40% tread left on the rears. Different car, but they grip the same, just take longer to get up to temp and in working range.
    I also hate how they flick up everything

    Not heat cycled on a track, my race track is the 18km each way commute to and from work.

    oh and M400R is the hotness in tunes, but you've got to buy all the supporting mods too... MRT apparently have them dialled in Aus, there is also a euro shop in Melb that I can't recall at the moment.

    Strange about the lights South if you have already adjusted them up, maybe a little more of a tweak could make a the difference.

    peal, I left the engine stock apart from an open end air filter and installed a Cobb Access Port with a Tune from Stratified, it just basically gives the car "All the Boost" from low RPM through to the limiter. Doesnt really make any more power than stock, but adds about 40% in the mid range. 1/4m went from from a 13.3@104mph to 13.08@107mph - could probably eek a high 12 if i ran it on fumes and lowered the launch control limit a bit.

    I had a mountune M380 setup on mine. It was good but should have bought their bigger kit as the accessport cant be used to tune like a proper cobb one. So in the end I had MRT custom tune mine as I didn't want to buy another accessport. Peak power wasn't up a heap over mountune but they made heaps everywhere else in the rev range and incredible gains down low.

    Yeah I find shove in the back isn't as brutal as my old 06 STI or the 86 but I won't be touching this car beyond what it comes until warranty is up. So has anyone cracked the factory ecu for open source tuning?
