    I have been driving it every day to work. I have changed most wearable parts at 230,000km. This includes a top engine mount, pcv housing, a radiator, heater hose and fuel rail sensor. Also, a waterpump and timing belt kit at 90000km and 215000km . I do not want to touch the motor as many people who modify these cars destroy engine mounts, clutches and flywheels,gaskets, intake manifolds and engine sleeves heating up and cracking. The car is great as it is. With 98 bp, it shocks most cars in 3rd ,4th and 5th gear as it only has a focus badge at the back. The xr5 badges attracted too much attention from everyone. Top speed at 240km has been achieved but is completely waste of time.
