  1. Cheap enough to get painted.
  3. To really check any distortion you really need a dial guage to check runout.
  4. Brembos are good, Look on ebay. fil=2%2C3%2C1%2C9%2C8&selvel=Ford~Fiesta%2520V~2008~MK%2520V%2520%255B2001-2010%255D~ST150&MMake=Ford&MModel=Fiesta+V&MYear=2008&vToken1=MK+V&vToken2=ST150&_pgn=2&_skc=50&rt=n The only Brembos in this list are rear discs. EBC are good, Mintex always used to be good.. You should try and see what is wrong, strip the brakes back, remove the caliper, remove the pads and re-assemble . Make sure the pads run smooth on the pins, use copper slip grease.on the pins and back of the pads.
  5. As you said, mask the areas not to be painted , or just go careful with a smallish brush, after giving the caliper a good wirebrushing and degreasing. You can only do what you are capable of. Or bite the bullet and ask your dad and brother for help. That's how most of the capable people on this site started out.
  6. Only the Black and Red editions ST line have city pack folding mirrors. I don't know why they didn't fit them to the Zs 140bhp as well.
  7. Caught one in the carpark today.
  8. Take your pick.
  9. You either fit a stock exhaust or an after market one. A lot of difference in price and choice. If the exhaust is melting the rear diffuser then it is an after market exhaust. You could trim the diffuser, saw a 2012 zs the other day where this had been done. However if you have to get a new rear box anyway get one that sweeps under the diffuser. Take your pick.
  10. Possibly 200mm x 32 mm. Best bet is to bite the bullet and remove a drum and measure.
  11. You'll notice a difference, all for the better. The little 3 cylinder 125bhp is a great engine, torquey and responsive. You'll not be disapointed.
  12. Look's like its broken.
  13. This has been posted before, apparently it's a common problem. Ford service use silicon grease on the threads.
