  6. If you could link me to where you read that ld be interested to see it myself. the speakers are one thing but you will also need a separate amplifier or amplifiers to enhance the audio levels from the headunit beyond the standard 50Wx 4 output. fitting 500w speakers sounds like a plan but you also need an amplifier to get 500w out of the speakers; if not then you won't get more than 50watts out of them. you won't have any issues with the altinator and those figures; unless the altinator is at the end of its lifespan in which case you would just replace it. a capacitor would help regulate draw from the battery but perhaps not required neither; depending on the class of amplifier or amplifiers purchased Class D wouldn't require a capacitor where Class A, B would and that's because there less efficent not better than a class D tthen there are two types of amplifiers; mono and stereo stereo also known as "full range" amplifier boosts all signals from the headunit sending them to the speaker, you cant send full range audio to a sub as it will potentially separate from the cone because it doesnt have a tweeter to process anything over 50hz a mono amplifier is designed for bass only. only a mono amplifier can take in full range audio but it only passes on anything 50hz or below to the sub. The only option for fitting a single amplifier to do sub and full range speakers is by fitting a five channel amp which can in some cases cost 100gbp more than purchasing two separate units.
  7. The cables required are available from Dave at autostar shop on eBay they also supply 12V sockets, http://stores.ebay.ie/AutoStar-Shop The rear roof monitor I have fitted provides two blue ambient light strips for shadow light with three levels of illumination while driving aswell as a main courtesy light and it's rear entertainment with games perhaps somthing you would also consider Guide to Fitting additional 12v Socket in Boot of Focus Click Here Guide to Fitting Footwell Lighting In Your Ford Click Here Guide To fitting 10" HD Flip Down Monitor Focus Mk2 & Mk2.5 Click Here

  9. 😅 Thanks for commenting, The problem with the focus when fitting the puddle lights was; there wasn't any courtesy live source within the doors or wing mirror to tap in to for the puddle lights, Some premium models have the puddle lights already in the wing mirrors making it easier to fit projector puddle lights in to the door cards as the desired feed is closely available but I'm my case the source needed to be run in.
  10. Alternatively if you were an individual working in Dealz driving a Corsa you could purchase a few cans of Dealz silver paint aswell as a deck of cards to protect the rubber from overspray resulting in somthing like eh this 😁
  11. Hello Lenny, 

    Can you please send me a larger version of your profile picture ? 
    I have a similar looking car, and I like the simple upgrades show in the profile picture, but I need to see the picture bigger to evaluate if worth to invest in upgrades :)

    Seems like it has : 17/18" RS wheels, black headlamps, DRL, and some type of new front bumper ? 
    If you can not send via forum, can you email it, please ? ( robert.nemeti@gmail.com )


    Thank you

      Hi Robert,
      Thanks for getting in touch mate, 
      I'll send you an email with some pictures of the front end;
       
      I've fitted ford standard black headlights which i had the brows painted to match the body colour,
      replaced bonnet lip with a colour codes version from ST available in primer grey from Ford for 28gbp
      Replaced grills with ZetecS grills which were sprayed gloss black along with the DRL fog surrounds, 
      The standard bumper has then a ZetecS front lip fitted along with a TripleRcomposites front splitter in gloss black.
      The car is lowerd on Ford approved eibach springs and the wheels are genuine mk2.5 focus ST 18x8 wheels.
