Your steering wheel is on the wrong/right side. I'd get that fixed right away :lol: .

Don't you guys believe in rust over there?
dont mention rust, its what killed my mk4 orion (escort saloon) the whole car was rusting away, this ones not too bad, a little on the bottom of the boot lid and thats its, mainly mechanical problems i've had.

is the insurance high over there, cos i know u get cheap petrol (or do you call it gas) its cos nearly 90p a litre here now, getting too pricey. all i need is a turbo and some better alloys.

oh dunno bout shipping it over lol

After years of hoping and yearning for euro scorts over here, Ford finally redesigned it and sold it here too. They also changed the name to Focus. So be careful what you wish for next time!

Escort Cossie is the best car.

Gas in my area here (petrol) has recently dropped to about 70 cents a litre. That's for the 87 octane, then it goes up to 94 octane which runs about 82 cents. That's the highest grade I can get here.

the 90p a litre here is for a 97 or 98 ron i think, normal petrol is only about 95 ron.

Hoodzy, if the jetta in america is the same as other her then u lost me on that, jettas are a saloon version of the VW golf, look nothing like and escort.

Chadgore, is that aimed at me? if so why do i suck?????

No Demon you have it backward. North america gets only lame cars> No Focus RS. No Cossie, No tubo AWD Escort as on the aussie Laser of the same body, We did get the Sierra XR4i but they called it XR4Ti because they supplanted a turbo 4 in there, and called it MERKUR. as in aMERKURn Sierra. No Granada 2.8i or anything else. Some domestic cars here are pretty hot though.
