  1. more next weekend when lowered etc
  2. yes, i have not fitted my springs yet so it looks like a 4x4 another pic next weekend once i have lowered it ;)
  3. Well ideally no more than 35mm, from what i have been told any more will put unnecessary strain on the suspension components. How true this is i do not know
  4. Thanks Just wanted to know before I order some lowering springs
  5. Just a quick one... The mk7 fiesta zetec s, does anybody know how much ford lowered it by? Cheers
  6. I honestly cannot believe the attitude of some people on this forum. They are illegal for all the reasons stated above by the many members that are trying to give good honest advice. I know 100% that if you live anywhere near me you will get stopped, then you can have a simple fine, points and a request to produce all the relevant documentation etc, Or have your car seized, this is fact I'm afraid
  7. Its is still ilegal though is it not? Im not trying to 'heckel' anyone. Yes i have been caught speeding, a mistake that i do not intend to do again. If you cause an accident and the police find out that you have retro fitted HIDs ilegaly then im afraid you will not have a leg to stand on and face a very hefty fine etc. (i know a lot about this due to my job!!!) Bottom line, ILEGAL
  8. Regardless of when your car is due an MOT, illegal is illegal. Not intended directly at you but the amount of threads on HID kits, the amount of advice given on the legal side and yet people still fit them. They are illegal because they are NOT SAFE TO OTHER DRIVERS. If you caused an accident im sure you would not forgive yourself. You can get very good uprated bulbs these days, please do not fit them.
  9. As above, the boot seal is normally not the problem, either get some gaskets for the lights (hard and rare to get hold of) or some decent mastic. Engine wise, new rappers is the only way really, not too expensive. May as well change the valve stem oil seals whilst your doing that. Unless it's really bad though I would not bother as a little noise is pretty normal for these engines. Power wise the ussual really, exhausts etc but its not really worth it. Best thing is to drop a zetec n/a in or a cvh turbo. For your parts give mark at medway rs centre a call on 07790195006, he normally has everything I hope this helps, pm me for any other info, I have been working on/ owning mk4 escorts for the last 12 years Ben

  11. as much as i hate the place i bought mine from halfords. 17 cm speakers then fit. Be aware that they do not come with a fitting kit. I think the best option would be to buy from ford mate, as they will have the correct fitting kit etc any probs give me a pm, i fitted mine last week :D
  12. There is absolutely no need to print in capitals/ bold etc, we can all read! There is also no mk8 fiesta!
