Car was also inspected to make sure no mods in place that could void the warranty claim.
How do you know the car was inspected for modifications? Did they tell you when you collected it, or did you see them inspect the car?

Re: Brake Fluid Change

I drained mine completely and filled with Ferodo Dot5.1

Brake pedal feels very solid as if I have braided hoses. Really a nice upgrade.

Thanks man. Passenger side looks normal in the 2nd pic. But I get what you are saying. Really appreciate the effort. I always prefer fitting the biggest possible battery in my cars.

Re: Oil Catch Can

Thanks for the responses gents. My question still stands though, is it needed for a stock car? If it's a relatively small/cheap mod that will extend the longevity of the motor then it makes sense. You can always improve on a stock car. Is it needed, well if it was needed then the manufacturer would...

Re: Battery size

652 is NOT the correct OEM size. It is too tall. 651 is the correct OEM size.

The only manufacturer whose 652 battery fits is the Probe Battery as their batteries are generally smaller than what they are supposed to be. But their batteries are also crap.

Ask them to fill it on the slowest speed. Sometimes filling on the fastest speed causes the click before the tank is full.

Re: Wanted 2007 Focust ST

Mine has 100k km on now. But doubt I will ever sell. Car is worth about R90k according to insurance. But what can you get for R90k these days?
