    Default Keep veccy or swap focus st170 ?

    I've recently been offered an 03 plate focus st170 with 70k as a swap for my 04 vectra sri cdti150 (101k on the clock)....I'm seriously considering it as we have a jeep grand cherokee (4.0 with lpg conversion) as our family car and mainly the vec is used just by me on my daily commute to work and back (34 miles)...
    Any advice, as I've been toying with getting rid of the veccy for the past few weeks now...
    Thanks, Steve

    Get rid of the 1.9 before it goes wrong.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Thats what I was thinking tbh-cleaned the egr twice since October already and done the solenoid mod. Theres so many scare stories and I'm worried about the clutch in the future not to mention the dpf...

    Go for the focus as long as its had a timing belt kit done on it, it shouldn't give you much trouble, If your worried about the looming big veccy bills get rid and let someone else pay them lol

    I'd say get rid of the vec before you have to pay out on it big time.
