Three times four

Ok, our ever reliable family hack 1994 KH Laser hatch finally made way for its replacement, a Capri Blue Ford Focus.







This brings our Laser count down to just the one 2001 Champagne KQ Laser, and boosts the Focus to a pair, the new car alongside my EUR04D - Blue Flame Focus.





Time to get some rims on that Laser already as well, I promise to stick pins in my brothers body until he does so.

Not pictured is my RS2000, and the Honda Accord V6, which, ironically, is at Honda getting a recall carried out on it.

Alot is riding on this vehicle, especially after our BA XR6 saga. If it proves as reliable as our other current Fords, Ford may once again be an option for future purchases. If it follows the BA path to hell, misery, and eternal condemnation, it will be the last Ford we ever buy. So far so good, so here's hoping.

Tim!

Re: Three times four

Some good pics there Tim. I really like the 2nd pic, very magazine like. I'm sure the new Focus will be everybit as good as your one.

Re: Three times four

I won't go into it in great depth, but here are the first and second threads on the problems we had with that car. It's not a pleasant experience so I'll leave it out of this thread, onto bigger (well, smaller, lol) and better things.

Those will give you a pretty good run down on the situation, but looking forward to better days!

Tim!

Re: Three times four

Ahh sweet Tim I hope it proves as reliable as your current Focus. Mum has had no dramas *knock on wood* with her Focus to date either. So fingers crossed!

You're certainly a great photographer!

Re: Three times four

What a pain in the arse mate, I hope your parents didn't lose too much money on this lemon.

Anyways, hopefully there are great times ahead for them with their new Focus. BTW, I like the colour of your car. Very solid.

Re: Three times four

That Honda is one of the best value for money Luxury machines around... in the old Accords they would have approached $55k.
And my god they are rockets on wheels...... they have plenty of poke :)
