  1. Someone find me the ZS rear skirt !! Can't find one at all at a decent price. :'(
  2. I like still feeling the effects of the snorkel delete 3 days on.
  3. Wow. Result! I'm actually surprised the garage paid out to you. Top marks to those lads for being so considerate. You don't see that every day. Well chuffed for you pal. So are you going for repair or brand new unit?
  4. I'll have to try this, as you know how I feel about my Ti-VCT!! In a different post, it showed that you've removed the snorkel and a plastic grid. Does it need both parts removing? The snorkel is a must and yes u would remove the rubber framing as well although opinions vary on the effect of removing it. Check out the thread on focusfanatics I posted. Lots of info on there and most people have removed the framing also. I did it just to free up more space behind the grill so more air is readily available. In theory.
  5. I second what MrBurns has stated. I did this mod myself yesterday and combined with my Green Cotton air filter, this really does improve acceleration, idle and cold starts. The car feels a lot happier accelerating from low revs. Highly recommended.
  6. Jammy sod. I've been keeping an eye for one for ages on eBay lol Fitting the diffuser shouldn't be too hard, as far as i know it's just clipped on. Be careful not to break any of them whilst taking the old diffuser off. They are quick brittle.
  7. Anyone got one of the full bulb kits on their cars? The Brightvue bulbs?
  8. Yes it was directly below the snorkel and held in place by two metal clips, one at each side. Removed the clips and pulled it out. I think a moderator has to change it for you. Alternatively you could start another thread with the title which could get stickied for other people to see. But yea it's a really easy mod and for the difference it makes I would recommend it to anyone.
  9. There's lots of details and info in this thread I found on focusfanatics re the snorkel delete: Lots seem to think removing that rubber framing would cause no trouble at all.
  10. "Rubber thing?" mine is plastic. Are we talking about the same part? Mine is made from plastic. I think it acts as a shield to prevent direct access from foreign objects and maybe water. If I was you I'd put that part back on. Have you got the lid on your airbox? Some leave it off, I left mine on. Hmm. That pic I posted, the 'frame' looking piece is definitely made of flimsy rubber. I was able to make a slice in it with extreme ease. Do you have a pic of the piece you are talking about? I left my air box lid on as without it I'd imagine there would be quite a bit of hot air sucked in.
  11. Had a butchers this morning, both have mods similar to what I would like to do. Ordered myself a rear diffuser this morning, not sure I will put it on though till I get front and side skirts so can do it all at once. Would like the ST spoiler as well but will have to wait for time being. Where did you get your lowering springs from and did you do it yourself? I got the springs from pretty good service. I will say that the H&R springs tend to knock a bit. Having some issues with that at the minute but in terms of ride comfort and stability theyre excellent. I had a garage do the springs. Where did you order you rear diffuser off and how much if you don't mind me asking? Any if the ones I see are around the £300 mark.
  12. I have a Green Cotton air filter that's been in the car for a while. It could do with a clean mind you but it the same shape/dimensions as the KN filter just without the removable bung. I may purchase that one maybe and give it a go but I'm going to give the one I have a good clean first. Hopefully after that it should make a bit of difference. I plan to get an exhaust done pretty soon too so that should all add up. Water Ingress: I wouldn't imagine anymore water getting in there than when the rubber thing was on. It wasn't exactly a tight fit and as far as I could see it didn't really look like it block any water/debris. I'll see how it goes, I spose if it comes to it I could just put it back in again.
  13. Same thing this morning. No stuttering going uphill and quick pickup from low in the revs. Quite pleased.
  14. If you're looking for some ideas have a look at mine and jinjoh_ninjohs build threads. You may get some ideas there. Nice car btw ;)
  15. Budget wise, not much tbh. If I get fed up eventually with the squeaks and knocks I'll just put stock springs back in until I can get a good set of coilovers. My car handles find. It's tight in the corners and feels planted. Just makes weird noises.
