  1. Hi Karl, No you can keep all the standard stuff you have fitted and still have a sub. The only sort of drawback or inconvenience compared to fitting an aftermarket headunit is; With the existing setup the sub will have a separate volume control knob like this: with an aftermarket headunit the sub volume control will be built in to the headunits software programme as saw here But the volume is in accordance with the volume of the headunit; it won't be a case of you pressing "mute" on the headunit but the sub keeps going, that won't happen. The standard headunit doesn't have an RCA output for an amplifier, so you need to purchase an RCA output adaptor, This connects to the existing speaker outputs and provides an RCA for connecting to an amplifier
  2. Hi your fiesta is a Mk7 or mk7.5 when searching for mods that's what your searching, the chassis is the same as all other mk7 fiestas so the ZetecS parts and possibly ST parts will fit too in terms of body and interior
  3. Hi, The click you hear in the passenger footwell is completely normal, it's the GEM computer sending the signal to the wiper switching on and then off after the set duration, You may like: Guide To De-Wiper Rear Of Focus Mk2 & Mk2.5 Click Here will pass MOT can't test or fail what isint fitted to the vehicle 😉
  4. Because the power you connected from the 12v socket was spliced in to the headunit loom; it was sending power where it's not supposed to be sent in that method. The Speedo cluster loom is connected to the factory headunits loom for the purpose of call info display and Radio station information. See image here says "CD Track 8"
  5. Much cheaper to do this yourself by purchasing a Haynes manual it will show you exactly how to remove the panels, Everything else is plug & play Save yourself as much as 500 pounds by not paying someone else.
  6. Hi, you could paint it but From my own personal experience having fitted a Gloss black front splitter which was painted numerous times to cover stone chips; your much better to wrap it because the stones don't impact on the wrap as much as they do in paint. I used to spray mine every six months 😅
  7. You would need a new box for best results, as without a box atall a universal mushroom will such in moisture and heat, If you have a 2005-2008 1.6tdci you can swap the box for the cylinder housing which is exactly the same unit fitted to the stock RS focus. a K&N57s can then be fitted or an alternative cylinder upgrade.
  8. A Green Cotton induction filter would be best for MPG and if you can get some NGK Irridium spark plugs for that model then go for those too. Also maintain tyre pressure and build up revs slowly
  9. Thanks for viewing and comments mate, you done alot to your previous focus; modifing cars is adictive and rewarding, posting on forums it becomes more competitive and before you know it your doing things just for the sake of updating the build thread, I wasted copious amounts of money looking back on it now, I wouldn't do half the stuff again I should have invested in the house sooner and the missus is alot happier since I've stopped doing the car aswell. when we started saving for our house we were renting but we worked out a plan at the start of the year that we would have 10,000 saved by the following January. saving is difficult and some weeks can leave you quite broke which is the point where people tend to give up on saving. but we wrote out a page like this, €5, €10 €15 €50 €70 €500 and so on until it all added up to a total of 10,000 Each pay day we would choose the affordable balance and transfer it to the joint savings account. Some weeks were difficult when rent and annual car insurance were due but that week we put €30 in to savings and crossed it off the list. This kept the savings goal alive because we were still making progress and still crossing a figure off the list even though it wasn't alot we were still involved in moving it forward. just thought id share that strategy may be of interest.
  10. I've fitted WF100 sattelite shotgun cable aswell 👍75 ohm two chairs and a broom stick to roll it off the coil without it twisting there's also 4G signal filters which block out LTE broadband interference
  11. Webro WF100 is the best shielded coaxial cable out there for otimum signal 👍
  12. I do plenty of miles around 40,000 per year, work is only 20km each way per day but we go far at the weekends and summer holidays. always fitted AVON ZV5 stick to the road very well as used by the Po Po aswell 🚔😉
  13. Yeah usually takes three days from Ireland unfortunately.
  14. I wasn't even drinking though 😣
  15. There mk3 focus alloys mate, fiesta wouldn't fit as there 4 bolt and focus is 5 bolt but you can fit 18" on the fiesta 😅 focus will take 20" BMW X5 rims but in a 15mm tyre profile be like elastic bands on the rim 😂 I got the mortgage first then two kids and started on the car then, now finished the car, I've got three kids and now improving the house instead of the car😁 thread here:
