Looked at one of these 2day, nice to look at and sat on the road pretty well, but not all that exciting performance wise, 115 bhp so id of expected it to go better really, very short power band although 90 in 5th was about just under 3k which seemed good!

Dont think id get one of these though, Golf wins the day yet again!

Just thought id share that with anyone poss thinking of one of these as I was [^]

dont think they are too bad! they have more torque than the 115PD golf, but the golf has an extra gear! lol

My old man had the focus and said it was much more powerful than my 110 TDI :(

Dave, you really should buy my Fabia

Reduced to ?9,990 with the Revo included.........[}:)][}:)]

Those Focus's are quite quick in the midrange - a chipped one would be useful I reckon

The Focus TDCI(115) has max. 184lb/ft torque which is less than Golf 115TDI(210lb/ft) but more than 110TDI(173lb/ft).

They actually drive,handle and ride very very well. It's much much more sorted than any standard mk4.

I know, I had a 2002 1.4 Focus Zetec. But I got into a 2003 Golf GTI 1.8T then and there was just no comparison [:D]

Agree about the focus - Mate had the Sport. Was smoother and handled so much better than my Anni. The 150pd had a bit more punch but not that much in it between them. Down a twisty road i'd rather be in the focus.
