Thanks Steficio and Syndrome.It was really cold this morning in Melbourne.I measured the time taken for rpm to stabilise.With the ambient temperature at 7 C,the Focus Ecoboost engine took 8 minutes and 15 seconds for the rpm to stabilise to 750.The engine was started from cold with no acceleration applied.I ran the test test on my Passat as well(1.8 turbo petrol) and it stabilised to 750 in 2 minutes and 40 seconds. Logically Passat should have taken longer to stabilise as the bigger engine block needs more time to warm up.Just wondering if this needs any further investigation?

What year Passat? My Ď95 Golf took a while to heat up and get back to low revs and it was similar time to your Passat. Although my Golf had 6 cylinders so might explain why it got to temp fast.

What year it is? -- 2015
What Variant/badge? -- Sport
What series? -- LZ
What transmission? -- Auto
How many km's did it run? -- 137000 and still going strong. I've not had any issues apart from a water pump bearing which needed to be replaced recently. Still I am thinking of upgrading to the new Focus ST Line or a 2018 LZ with full unlimited klm warranty since I am out of warranty now.

Thoughts?

Usage a bit high because I got stuck in traffic but managed to snap this when I arrived home.

Year: 2011
Variant: TDCi - hatch
Series: LV
Transmission: Manual

Timing and auxiliary belts are due for replacement at 200,000km.
Just put new Michelin Primacy 4 tyres last month, and so far the car is doing good, no issues anywhere.

What year it is? -- 2007
What Variant/badge? -- CL 2.0L
What series? -- No idea
What transmission? -- Auto
How many km's did it run? -- 61k

Just bought this because it was amazing low km for the year and price ~5k. I wasnít even looking at Foci but at Golfs as a reliable runabout that wonít completely usurp the kombi. Whatever it was, I didnít expect to love it, but itís great! For its class itís roomy, punchy and handles really nicely.
