  1. Not my week

    Damn, just keep ringing them asking for updates, they'll probably give you the worst car as well! I got a pug 106... Couldn't stand the thing
  2. Third Fiesta? Gotta be an ST-3!

    Aha no worries, gave mine the full treatment today (and yesterday) this is half of the stuff!
  3. Not my week

    Hmmm never heard of them, just document what they say, what they do, and when they do it, you never know what can happen. I got told different dates by different people, told me my car was in one place when it was somewhere else, I also got given a courtesy car, which they didn't even remember to pick up so it sat around for a few days until they realised..
  4. Not my week

    Whats the repair company called, if it's anything along the lines of nationwide, they are useless.
  5. RimBlades?

    I you still need badges email geloverlays@yahoo.com
  6. Sticking things onto paint

    Boiling water would soften it as well, IPA will also help as you can buy this in aerosol cans, it will probably strip any wax or sealant you have on though. Where did you get these vents from?
  7. Third Fiesta? Gotta be an ST-3!

    Ahh the best colour then! I went fro panther black to frozen white, then frozen white again. Why would you never get black again? I'm assuming you want to de-tango all the lights so this is what I have and can vouch for them (still working for 2 years and swapped cars) Use these x2 for the front and rear indicators: https://www.amazon.co.uk/DIADEM-halogen-signallamp-7507DC-02B-blister/dp/B007OYVJO6 Use these for the wing mirror indicators: https://www.amazon.co.uk/DIADEM-Indicator-2827DC-02B-invisible-blister/dp/B007P5UIFK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1464109459&sr=8-1&keywords=chrome+indicator For the dipped beams (H7 Bulb) I'm waiting for a HID Kit to be available from PWPerformance https://www.facebook.com/PWPerformance-1468135886848737/ If you're not looking to get a HID Kit then I'd go with these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/OSRAM-BREAKER-UNLIMITED-halogen-headlamp-64210NBU-HCB/dp/B00EPLCPRG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1464110375&sr=8-1&keywords=osram+h7 You can get the same for the full beam which is a H1 bulb: https://www.amazon.co.uk/OSRAM-BREAKER-UNLIMITED-halogen-headlamp-64150NBU-HCB/dp/B00EPLCO3G/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1464110407&sr=8-1&keywords=osram+h1 Interior bulbs I use these for everything, very bright white light with a slight blue/purple tinge (6K) they aren't cheap though. These are used for everything, footwells, interior lights, numberplate lights, sidelights (if you don't have LED DRL) bootlight etc. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Premium-Retrofit-W2-1x9-5d-interior-2850CW-02B/dp/B0088XET0S/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1464110024&sr=8-6-spons&keywords=osram+LEDriving+cool+white&psc=1 The Mk7.5 comes with a festoon (C5W) bulb for the courtesy light so I got one of these to match: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Standard-Retrofit-SV8-5-8-interior-6436CW-01B/dp/B016DM2T7K/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1464110024&sr=8-4&keywords=osram+LEDriving+cool+white You can probably tell i'm quite a Osram fan (never had one of their bulbs fail!) Alternatively ask PWPerformance (link above) or go to CEUK who provide bulbs specially for the ford community, also a 10% discount if you use Ceuk10 - http://www.carenhancementsuk.co.uk/category/mk7-mk7-5-fiesta So next is the handbrake gap filler! It's not cheap, but i'd rather pay £12 then take apart the whole centre console to get something i've dropped down there, you can buy it here: http://www.strongshapes.co.uk/ Same splitter i'm getting fitted! So either TRC directly or from a reseller/somebody putting their Fiesta back to standard! Are you getting the Gel inlays or the flat vinyl inlays from DMB? I got the Gel inlays, recently ordered another one for the back (black this time) and a Vinyl flat set because I need one for my engine cover! Both will work though of course. The wing panel inserts are something i'm not sure or whether getting for mine, maybe seeing them on yours will help me decide, I'm sure DMB did these but can't seem to find them, either way these two are on eBay: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-FIESTA-ST180-MK7-MK7-5-MK8-FORD-FOCUS-ST-MK3-DOMED-GEL-WING-BADGES-RS-STYLE-/222124488008?fits=Car+Make%3AFord|Model%3AFiesta&hash=item33b7a6b548:g:FfUAAOSw9uFW998I http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-FIESTA-ST180-MK7-MK7-5-MK8-FORD-FOCUS-ST-MK3-DOMED-GEL-WING-BADGES-RS-STYLE-/322087834481?fits=Car+Make%3AFord|Model%3AFiesta&hash=item4afdee5371:g:NBUAAOSw-YBXGkkT For the overlays I just emailed geloverlays@yahoo.com, got 3 Gel badges, front, rear and steering wheel for £18, pay via Paypal, came in two or three days! Lowering springs (These might be different versions, depends on how low you want to go) Eibach (sico developments) http://www.pumaspeed.co.uk/product-Eibach-Lowering-Springs-Mk7-Fiesta-ST180--25mm_16022.jsp Eibach (Pumaspeed) http://www.pumaspeed.co.uk/product-Eibach-Lowering-Springs-Mk7-Fiesta-ST180--25mm_16022.jsp Eibach (Graham Goode) http://shop.grahamgoode.com/fiesta-st180-ecoboost-eibach-lowering-springs-spring-kit-pro-kit--1520mm-e10-35-020-02-22-72091-p.asp Eibach Pro (Jamsport) http://jam-sport.co.uk/shop/fiesta-st180-eibach-sportline-lowering-spring-kit/ Mountune (Jamsport) http://jam-sport.co.uk/shop/mountune-st180-sport-spring-kit/ Mountune https://www.mountunestore.com/collections/mk7-fiesta-st/products/fiesta-b299st-sport-spring-kit Engine mods: Look up Mountune (of course), Revo & Peron. There is also Pumaspeed but i've been told not to trust them. Unless you are buying silicone hoses etc. You can literally google anything to do with the Fiesta ST180 and be taken to well known companies who provide Engine modifications, Turbos, intercoolrs, induction kits etc. But the best ones will be sites i've already linked in this post and the above 3! Lot of reading and clicking for you to do, hope this helps!
  8. Cheers! What made you choose the Rok Blokz over any others that are available?
  9. Nice! Best colour! I've done/planned some similar mods, the ODB is on order, quite interested in your tracker, can this be powered via a USB?
  10. Third Fiesta? Gotta be an ST-3!

    Sure! Ask away! what colour are you getting?
  11. Tapping noise

    Have you got a nail or a s crew stuck in your tyre?
  12. hello everyone

    Welcome! You're only down the road from me! I've probably seen your escort around, you got any pictures of it?
  13. Howdo Ford lovers!

    Nice, you got any pics of it at all?
  14. Hi

    Nice, what engine does your 13 plate have?
  15. (Pics) Marks on paint that disappear when wet

    Have you tried applying anything to remove the marks? Used any polish on paint cleaners? Are they water marks at all?
