It purely came down to condition, lol!

I hate suvs and crossovers, lol! They're completely pointless! Is your dad's focus a mk1?
I do enjoy more kit! I like my cars to have 3 doors though :P The 1.2 is a nasty engine to drive compared to the 1.4 imo.

Not sure on the mk, I don't really stay clued with the focus. It's an 02 plate so I'm thinking it's pretty early?

Lol! I've never had a 3dr, so I don't know if I could live with the inconvenience, lol! A lot of people say the 1.2 is awful, but my old mk2b was a 1.2 8v, and I thought it was a cracking little engine!

Yep, that is a mk1 focus. There would probably be more of a difference in size if you compared your Grande to a mk2 focus.

Re: would you compromise on car colour ?

The 1.2 was fine is my mk2 but the grande is a much bigger car so is much heavier. The engine struggles a bit making it horrid to drive. I had one as a courtesy car once. Nearly made them take it back lol!

Re: would you compromise on car colour ?

I compromised by letting someone else buy me my car... And therefore couldn't veto the colour. Initially hated it, but its grown on me! (I have the pale yellow panda) xxx

Re: would you compromise on car colour ?

I was after the white AGP and waited months and months for the right one to turn up, the wait was worth it.
