I'm not using google groups but did downloaded all the news available
from scratch off the server, after sifting through them all I deleted
loads and this has freed up some space.
I have now managed to load the remainder (including 11th Feb 2009),
perhaps my news client had downloaded the maximum amount.
Anyway back on topic,
I am picking up a 2001 (Y reg) Ford Focus 2.0 Zetec estate on Tuesday
night and look forward to driving/owning it.
I have traded in my 1993 Escort Estate Ghia which is now beginning to
show its age.

I went from a succession of Escorts to a Focus in 1999. I still have it,
and still prefer it to many newer cars I've driven.
It's on about 96K miles now; it has never failed to start, or broken
down. Apart from consumables and service items, it's cost me less than
100UKP over the ten years.
Your newsreader may be set to download a limited number of messages
(300 is a common default). Click on Edit => Catch Up to bring your
newsreader up-to-date on a newly downloaded group. After that you can
use View => Current View => "Show All Messages" to view older posts.

Be cautious! Some UK cars don't have sufficient wires installed to enable
this mod. From memory, I think you need all the connectors at the switch
occupied. Google for a UK site detailing the mod; there will be a few.
Note that the switch from a Mondeo is identical, but at least in the
recent past was significantly cheaper for some bizarre reason.
Thanks for the heads up Chris!
I did a search and found this site:
http://bogit.com/wp/2005/11/29/focus-washwiper-switchstalk/ which sort
of suggests it might work if I have ten wires, I have looked at my Focus
switch earlier and found it has ten wires, (all occupied) so if I have
read the above blog correctly I think a new switch should work.
