  9. Front Fog Lights With Intigrated Drl's

    +1 Technically they are legal and I would have thought you would get away with them. I am being a devils advocate now going asking does anyone know of anybody driving a new volvo with fog DRLs and have they been stopped?
  10. Weird Fluter/rattle

    Hi Mark, Does it sound like its a metal on metl sound? I had a simillar issue with mine and what I found was that the heat shield on the turbo was hitting the steel radiator pipe and by pushing it back and putting heat resistant tape on stops the two rattling together,
  11. 17" Alloys On A Focus

    Hi Sal, I personally don't think 17" alloys would look too small, here is a picture of a focus lowered 35mm and i think it loks well with the alloys.
  12. Diy Alloy Wheel Refurbishmnet

  13. That is a smashing Fiesta mate! Really like the colour and wheels fair play. Have you pictures from start to finish to create a project build thread would be interesting to see mate
  14. Cleaning

    Hi focusdriver, I agree with all the lads about the washing up liquid, over time washing constantly will dull the paint work on the car and cannot be gotten back no matter how much polish you use. Autoglymm shampoo as said above would probably be the best but the turtle wax one would not be far off. I would use either WD40 or raw kerosene to remove tar, put kerosene into a spray bottle, give a liitle squirt on tar spots and leave for a few minutes then start washing your car. Also use a microfibre wash mitt and the two bucket technique to wash the car to ensure no dirt gets onto the car. For wax I personnaly have use the Autoglym High Defintion Wax which is slightly costly but lasts for ages as you use very little and will last for months.
  15. Bus Build Thread!

    Good man Clive thanks for clearing that up was actually really curious hope nobody wasa offended with what I was asking. :)
