Don't ask 100 at Carryduff Auction in Belfast and it cost me 1800 to insure it it was my first car and had just passed my test.

Stef are you sure there is no abs? i would put money on it does but then again iam not going to as i don't have any

I'd be shocked if your Focus doesn't have it Stef.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

I know its a big dissappointment that my car doesn't have ABS but as it is not mandatory on a car of such age, surely the road should be safe for all users and not just the ones with ABS. The least I am expecting to be done is some form of anti-slip surface to be applied. Time will tell though.
