Getting my 2005 Focus fixed


I was wondering if anyone could advise me if im getting a good or bad deal on the quote I have recieved from my local Ford Dealership.. I live in the UK and whilst driving to work, lost all power. Engine failure light (the red one was one)

Managed to slowboat it to the garage and they looked at it today.

Following diagnositics the following was concluded.

The EGR Valve (Exhaust gas recycle) was blocked and needed to be replaced.
The DPS (Diesel particulate filter) was blocked and needed to be replaced.

For the initial inspection and the costs of new parts and labour I got quoted 1672 pounds.. I was told that the price of the DPS is 900 quid alone.. I just wanted to make sure I wasent being ripped off.

Cheers for any advice you may have!

Hi John,

I believe you are right, it does seem to be true, and I think thats because of the engine and its tuning by ford! shame they couldnt just do that as standard...

Following on from this, above you will remember I contacted a company sinspeed regarding this, hopefully the information below will be of use to others. I am strongly considering them at this time!!


Currently we have a great promotional offer on whereby we can offer a complete DPF removal service for just £550.00 on the Ford Focus.

This quote includes the following:

Engine ECU Reprogramming - This will ensure the engine will run optimally & efficiently without any errors, without any warnings and with zero problems.

Diesel Injection Tuning - This is something we offer that NO other company in the whole of Europe can currently offer. The Diesel Injection Tuning will ensure your vehicle will still pass the MOT after the DPF is removed and this is guaranteed!

Physical DPF Removal - We not only remove the DPF, we bore out the exhaust system using an Industrial Pillar Drill to ensure optimum performance with a unique exhaust tone. This also ensures no particle residue will flow back into the turbo and cause damage to your vehicle!

This whole service from start to finish is normally retailing at £750.00 however, as a XMAS promotion we was offering this at £550.00 and can offer it to you at the very same discounted price.

Also, dependant on your location, we can offer a free collect & return service as well whereby a member of our team will come out, collect the vehicle and bring it back to our workshop. Once the work has been completed, your vehicle will be dropped back to you.

For bookings & more information, please call us on 0871 2887 666 or if you can respond with a contact number, a member of our team will call you back.

Kind Regards,
Support Team
