drained a little haldex oil out as wasn't sure if when I removed filter it would run out.

Old filter out



Found the same gunk on the filter bits as what was clogged up in the little filter mesh on the haldex pump





New filter in



 topped oil up and my job done, happy it's been serviced now and can start saving for some mods. think first up will be a revo intake, loved the last one I had.

Revo Intake is the one  :happy2: Defiantly worth the money!

Good work on the maintenance

Cheers mate  :happy2: just pleased all the maintainance side of things is done at least for now.

Yes revo is the only way to go for me, loved the sound of my old one, plus it's one of the best if not the best flowing intake around. Santa might bring me one  :innocent:

Some small up dates I've done to the car the last couple of days, probably of no interest to you tho  :smiley:

First up was to remove the awful hands free kit that a perious owner had installed. I hate the little screens and mics etc stuck on the dashboard and other trims around the cabin from it so needed to go.

Little bit of a strip down of the inside to remove module and wires etc


The kit itself remove

Then put the inside back together and job done.

Then I put the new pollen filter in after I ordered the wrong one when I did my service the other week.


Noticed this when washing it, someone hasn't put the light back in correctly


Much better  :happy2:

Still not much happening with this yet but it will come. Bought some black coolant and washer caps to smarten the engine bay up, whilst I was at it I gave the underside of bonnet and engine bay a good clean using bilt hamber surfex hd, dried then dressed with auto finesse dressle. Looks much better





Also thought I'd treat it to a new reg on some legal metal pressed plates, just waiting for the reg to transfer over. Can't wait to put them on.



Apart from that just been really enjoying driving the car and keeping it clean inside and out to my standards. I've pasted a few focus rs's on my travels and I don't have any regrets  :happy2:

Excellent stuff, I like a nice clean engine bay.

I might invest in some Black Coolant and Washer Bottle caps myself!

thank you  :happy2: yeah me to the engine bay has got to be nice and clean and the caps are a nice little touch I think

Decided agaist a intake for now and I'm putting that money towards a uprated clutch and fly wheel. Might as well get the worst job out the way first then what ever stage I go to il not need to worry about the clutch ever slipping.

Changed my plans slightly, instead of going straight to stage 2+ I'm going to go stage 1 with r tech sometime in the earlier part of the new year. Might as well enjoy stage 1 and then when I get bored and funds allow il go the full way with stage 2+.

So before I book stage one I have a small shopping list and things to do:
Pre cat delete
Revo cam coated intake
R-tech heat shield
R-tech pcv delete
Dv+
R8 coil packs

Maybes a oil change and new cam follower nearer time as well

Got one thing ticked off the list on Monday, goodbye pre cat  :happy2:
