  3. Goodbye 1.0 Hello St3

    So i havnt posted any updates on my car recently so il pick up where i left off. Since the last time i have installed quite a few new mods as listed:- - Milltek Exhaust Best modification to the var by far i would recommend this exhaust to anybody as the exhaust is not as loud granted as others but sounds the best, there is no drone and has that orgasmic rasp that this little hot hatch deserves and the odd pop to if you hoon around for long enough hehe. - BR Motorsports CAIS Induction Kit Another great mod and cheap to at £150 it is the best value for money induction kit there is out there if your on a budget and it includes the primary induction hose in that price too. - Front and Rear lights Tinted inc Fogs and Vinyl eyebrows fitted I chose to have the eyebrows fitted so no paint will be rubbed off my bumper and for the flush look and also the cost of the TRC ones. This mod just makes the car extremely evil - TRC Splitter This just adds to the cars more mean stance now it looks ace when your stood in front of it and when you see it behind you it would make you pee a little then pull on to the hard shoulder to let me past. - Carbon Wrapped Mirrors and interior trim Everyone loves CARBON!! - Mountune Spoiler extensions And on to making the back of the car look alot meaner so i got my spoiler extensions and of course to be different i got them wrapped in carbon fibre and kept the matte black for the fins - R-Sport Decat I needed more pops and bangs in my life so i was weighing up the differences between a milltek decat and an r-sport one and the only difference i found was the price so i saves myself £80 and got an r-sport one and for the mil cheat a £10 off ebay and its the exact same one that pumaspeed buy in to sell on for near enough 4x the amount. this is still yet to be fitted as work had been packed so not been able to get it in so i will have to book time off to go in and do it this week. - 6000k HID bulbs and 6000k Cree LED Projector Fog Light Blubs - LED Reverse Lights - Swapped all 4 sh*tty Bridgestones for Continental SportContact5s Only cost me £40 and already had 2 sat at work so i banged all 4 on as my two fronts were quite low and yes i know they are the incorrect speed rating but i don't think il be going 150mph+ in the uk anyway. I will let these run down and then 4 Michelin Pilot Sport 3's or PS4's if there do them in our size at the time. - Focus ST Clear High Level Brake Light and Short Ariel i have no photos of the ariel but im sure you all know what a shortened ariel looks like - Mountune Rear Engine Mount On order at the moment should be fitted within the next few weeks Thats all i have done for now but the plans for the very near future are:- - Collins Performance Stage 2 230hp+ - Mountune Quick Shift - H&R 30mm Lowering Springs - Painted Engine Cover - Gloss Black Plastics - Front Bumper and bonnet respray and stone guard fitted (F***ing stone chips) And after all my hard work i went out one dinner time to go and get my lunch from tesco and some stupid cow was too impatient when i was waiting to reverse into a spot and she clipped my rear bumper, smashed my reflector and popped the bumper out and to top it of a few massive dirty great big scratches which on some are down to the plastic. Luckily i had a spare reflector at work and the bumper just popped back in and most of the scratches polished out but will need a proper machine polish and touch in/possible respray depending on price, at least the back end is now back to normal Thats all for now il try not leave is as long in putting up progress reports but Stitch is coming along nicely

    possible dpf issues when you floor it the car sees that the dpf maybe blocked and puts the car into a sort of limp mode to prevent any possible back pressure in the engine and destroying your engine.

    Well on friday i picked my new baby up from work and brought her home after the longest wait of my life. First lot of modifications on it was starting with my keys Carbon fiber wrapped key blade cover and the mandatory ST keyring. Wind deflectors on order and bulbs are next on my list. Spend the whole of yeaterday detialing it and now she is a stunner all waxed clayed and polished all ready for winter. Watch this space for more..... Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  7. Fiesta St Loud Tapping Noise

    Just an update for everyone ford are currently investigating this issue as shown in this broadcast message from etis they should release more info soon Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  8. Starter.

    Hard to explain for me bud but its at the front of the engine its 4/6 13mm nuts attaching the earths to the starter and 4x 13mm bolts attaching it to the gearbox plus disconnect the electrical connectors colour code these to make it easier when your putting it back together then it will pull straight out but its best doing it on a ramp i wouldn't try it on your drive lad hope this helps Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  9. Starter.

    +1 but if it is the starter there not that bad to do if you have a ramp and its at the front on the engine on your shape
  10. im dreading doing a cam belt on these at 100k as the only easy way is really to drop the engine
  11. Sat Nav In Fiesta

    god i forgot there was that much loom even my ar5e just fell out thinking of fitting all that even as techie
  12. Sat Nav In Fiesta

    ford can quote for it all but it will be extortionate i would recommend looking on eBay for a scrap zetec or zetec s with the ford nav and get the whole lot or look for a full system on there from people doing Ford to sony conversions bud
  13. Sat Nav In Fiesta

    you would have to purchase a new screen, head unit, wiring loom, sat nav base and ariel, navigation sd card. its a very dear do if it wasn't specced from the factory you would be looking around £600+ in total and then if your not fitting it yourself you have to pay for the fitting too.

  15. think of motability as a lease company, so the car has been well maintained mechanically, serviced on time, had premium brand tyres if any ever needed replacing, if any parts needed replacing e.g brakes all these have been replaced by genuine parts. The only part you have to worry about is the previous owners how have they treated the car but a low mileage automatic I would surmise that to be a parish priest :P that has owned the car just to go to the convent and back. if the car had normal mileage and a manual gearbox i would surmise this to be treated normally but always look at the service history try and get it as detailed as you can if it has had a history of brakes, tyres and its only a few years old I would defiantly say the car had been ragged. People have the idea because its a lease car it doesn't matter how you treat the car.
