Bit of Disco love this morning. Swapped the front and rear wheels around, gave the underside a good clean, top up the washer bottle and a good clean.

Used my silver spare wheel (as only had one jack, and silver for sure doesn't suit this car at all!

Image

Ensuring everything is dried off. Still can't believe the size of the brakes on this one. Huge compared to the D180.

Image

Of course a little copper slip before the nuts go back on.

Image

Can't beat a clean wheel arch lol

Image

Image

The larger vented rear discs are a nice touch too!

Image

Then out comes the snow foam!

Got to love the new lay out!

Rumour has it, another major upgrade is on the way in the spring, which will further enhance the system with another new payout.

Should have painted. The callipers red while you had the wheels odd.

Interested that you say it doesn’t use a Hadlex for the 4x4, what does it use?

Red calipers? Would look horrible lol 😂 The rears are brand new so will leave them alone, and will do the fronts silver again next year.

The D240 uses the torque vectoring system like on the Focus RS.

Nice colour combination and spec. I nearly went for a D5 in that combo, but went for the usual black on black.

Mav, how are the discs holding up against corrosion just out of interest? OSR looks a bit suss in the photograph, but could just be light surface rust I suppose....have you had reason to get them replaced in the last 6 months?

They are discoloured as I had just washed everything down. When I bought the car, the rear discs and callipers were badly corroded.

Unfortunately, the latest service bulletin on discs now states that the discs have to be severely corroded to be covered by warranty, and mine were not bad enough based on the service bulletin. So the supplying dealer from Somerset authorised my dealer to replace the discs and pads and Taunton LR would cover the costs. The callipers were replaced under warranty.

So they are all perfect now. The discs that have been fitted are the 'later' spec versions and shouldn't corrode. Time will tell.

Colour combo is spot on! Wish I had the choice of Byron blue with the Landmark Edition. The black pack really makes a difference on this colour and is much better than the corris I’ve gone for!

Don't think I've ever seen a Dynamic Lux with front fogs before, nor was I aware that they were an option! Did you fit them yourself Mav?

Thanks. I wasn’t sure at first as the only Byron blue I saw at the time was an HSE Luxury. The silver trim didn’t do the colour any favours.

I then googled it and saw it in a Dynamic and I was hooked!
How do you find the MPG compared to the last one you had?
