  1. Rear camber is the main issue. You can get camber bolts, but corrosion can prevent them being fitted as per what happened to me. If that happens, then you can drop it as much as I did, but any lower would cause issues. Anyway, I've now got a VW Passat due to starting a new job and the Focus is up for sale. I got the mk3 Focus 18" wheels refurbed in shadow chrome and put them on our candy red Mondeo. They look pretty awesome! So if you're interested in the Focus, send me a PM. Looking for £3.5k. Car has only done 50k miles.
  2. Let me know what you think of them. I've been tempted a few times to buy them.
  3. I was thinking along the same lines as you are i.e. will door stripes look a bit naff with a car that has no sideskirts. You mainly see door stripes on ST models which come with sideskirts as standard, so it is a concern that I share. I didn't want to put sideskirts on my car as I would have to ditch the Ford mudflaps and I'd rather keep a hold of them. Even if I did fit sideskirts, the side of the car would then look lower than the front/rear bumpers and it just snowballs from there. I managed to get the rear wheels fitted, so some extra photos were duly taken. I'm loving the ST spoiler :) It's just a pity that it looks so good from the top down and most people will never see it from that angle:
  4. Looks like the E-tech stuff I used a few years ago. I had a similar idea of green on a black car when I had my Bora. Looks good Kiefer!
  5. So I managed to get my gel badges on and swapped the front wheels over after a coat of chemical guys wheel wax. I ran out of time to do the back wheels, but it's raining here now so that's just how it is in Scotland! I borrowed the wife's hair dryer to heat the badges up as it's not exactly tropical here. Some shots of the new interior: Couldn't resist a little trial fit of my newer wheels: Starting to come together now: I just need to get the back wheels on, fit my door stripes and fix the interior light and that's me starting to run out of ideas. I'm starting a new job at the end of the month and I'll be getting a company car, but I don't want to part with this after everything I've done to it!
  6. The weather is supposed to be better today, so if I have time, I'll try and get the wheels swapped over.
  7. It's lowered on AP coilovers :) A full set of strips for the four doors came to £64.
  8. Cheers Barry. Here's a couple of slightly better pictures. I quite like the mk3 Focus badge and the new TDCI badge makes the rear end look a lot cleaner: I just need to get better weather to fit the gel badges, door stripes and my Team Dynamics Pro Race 3 wheels :)
  9. I ended up getting new strips as well. They just smoothed the textured strips down before they painted them. Makes a big difference to how the car looks:
  10. Cheers mate :) I'm pleased with it!
  11. Got the car back today. Haven't had much of a chance to take a close look, but it's looking pretty dam good! The rear bumper trim that had previously been colour coded had to be repainted as we suspect that it had reacted to the back to black product I used to use. He also re-painted the boot handle trim as he noticed it was going the same way. This was done for free, so I'm quite happy that they've been fixed. The bonnet and roof have been fixed and I've finally got my ST spoiler painted, fitted and wired in. He fitted new bump strips which have been colour coded and the back wheel arch has been sorted. I've also got my boot badges fitted which look nice and fresh. My gel badges arrived: Picture quality isn't great! I'm hoping to get my white wheels back on and to get some better pictures up. The weather here is pretty crap, so it's stopping me from getting anything done. My DMB stripes are here as well, so hopefully I can get this finished off sometime soon!
  12. Looks great! The mk2.5 really suits silver :)
  13. B) good good! I think sometimes it would be better if they didn't bother washing your car. I know I'd rather do it myself.
