Well it's been a bit over a year I've had this and it's still a hoot to drive = still lovin it.
It is a little over due on it's 90 k service =( will pass 91k this week).
Means I've done 15.5k in it and probably 15k in the year.

It was the ginny pig for using my new workshop tool/toy today a quick jack.
Once tested a couple of times I rotated the tyres = easy.

Found one issue with the Focus = passengers front strut has been leaking and appears to be getting worse ( although I hit a big ol pot hole on Monday on the way to work ).
Speaking of work and it's a limited gig and some very crappy roads I'm gonna try and hold off as long as possible before changing the struts.

Looks like I'm using the Maloo next week ( maybe even the one after) .!!!!!!!
Very noticeable on the way home on Tuesday the Focus was at times not it's normal brilliant handling best.
Yes we are going into lockdown but the contracted work I'm involved in needs to be ( contracted to ) finish at the end of the year and the end customer is ambulance NSW .

Ordered new KYB excel g shocks last Wednesday rang today yes they are in.
Noticed on the way out the boxes were different and yes while both had the same part # they were 2 different shocks.
One came from Brisbane and one from Perth =WTF!!!
The Perth one was correct so another one is coming express post from there= if I'm really Lucky I might get it tomorrow arvo
