  1. Managed to get a few little things in before Ford Fair. Nothing as noticeable as some mods previous but some I have had in some garage and been thinking about for a while. The first thing that I managed to get done was to fit myself a K&N 57s-4000 filter. I did quite a bit of research on this before buying and must be honest it paid off and am really pleased. For those of you that know the filter it costs in the region of £150-£200, I managed to bag this for £80 second hand. It had covered 28k but had been oiled and serviced prior to me purchasing it. The first picture is of the lid which is slightly higher than the standard box and also has an open end to increase the amount of air it can suck in. (Picture taken from Lenny (Ford Owners Club)) This second picture is to show how the filter looks and to demonstrate the bung system it incorporates. In the summer you can remove the bung to increase noise and the surface area of the filter. In the winter you would refit the bung as there is a higher chance of sucking in too much cold air and additional rubbish floating around in the air. (Picture taken from Lenny (Ford Owners Club)) The third and fourth pictures are merely it fitted and how it looks in my engine bay. No comments about the cleanliness please :P that'll be sorted over the next couple of days. Some of you may know that I was asking about brakes not too long back. Well I bought them after some discussion and can say I finally fitted them this Saturday just gone. They are EBCs BSD (Blade Series Disc) and the design is lovely. The pads are greenstuff but neither have bed in effectively so I can't give an honest review yet. Over the next two days I am off work to get the car detailed for Ford Fair. I will update accordingly on the day as I wouldn't want to spoil the surprise :P (I'm sure there will be stunners there!) C&C Welcome as per :)
  2. I didn't.. depends on how they look when on i guess.
  3. Hi b4zz. Thank you for your message about the flaps but thought I would post the pictures on here so it could help everyone. Here are where they were attached on mine : First pic is the back and second is the front :)
  4. Mm I'm not sure either about carbon but I think it needs something and normally carbon is a pretty tame go. I appreciate what your saying about the buttons but the STs have a carbon surround and silver buttons "/ Sun strip is tempting. Got to see what money I've got left nearer the end of the pay packet with it being a long month :(
  5. Tonight seen a very slight change to the motor (when I say slight I mean minuscule)! As today is pay day thought I would treat the car to some new heater knobs :P There are some pics below if anyone is interested ;) Before: After: In other news though, I think I have finally sold bonnet vents to myself and got myself provisionally on a fitting meet with the Focus STOC. I am bricking myself a little bit but am satisfied that the bloke who is coming out knows what he is doing (Nick STParts). As some of you know, I have got some bonnet vents already but am going to have them colour coded so they are a bit more subtle. I have also got some Carbon EBC Blade Styled Discs and GreenStuff Pads in the post that should hopefully be swapped out next weekend (feel a tad lighter in the pocket after those) but should dramatically improve my breaking performance! And finally a couple of questions for you lovely people: 1) Do I carbon wrap my centre console? 2) Should I fit a thin Sun Strip onto the front of the car? C&C Welcomed as per :)
  6. http://www.performancecreations.co.uk/ford-focus-st-mk2-st225-3mm-pvc-black-308-p.asp Those are the flaps buddy. They are extremely hard wearing and worth the money. I am pretty sure you wouldn't have any problems fitting them to your car without side skirts. Just have to pick your holes :) Cheers for your comments and the rear wiper fits the car nicely :)
  7. Today, me and a few other guys attended Ford In The Park at Kingsbury Water Park. The weather was terrible but attendance wasn't bad at all! Managed to get a few pictures still. Here are a few for your perusal: Managed to bag myself a cheeky gloss rear wiper too for the focus from PaintModz! Must say it looks so much better and blends nicely with the privacy glass:
  8. Looking good. You looking at mountuning anything else? I see your short shift in there
  9. Always good to be different.. don't be a sheep :D
  10. I personally just think it would set the back off better. Nice to see how the cars coming along though. Not been on here for a while.
  11. Stop considering and get on with it then :)
  12. Should of added this before but something like this would look good. http://www.maxtondesign.co.uk/product/fiesta-mk7-fl-2013-up/roof-spoiler-ford-fiesta-mk7-facelift-model-focus-rs-look.html
  13. Unsure how it would look but personally I would go for black spoiler. Set the lights off a bit more as they look too merged into the body. Only an opinion :)
  14. That's the headunit I've got Hassen.. had it in now for just over 12months, you won't be disappointed!!
  15. Unfortunately that kind of money is in the house fund at the moment. It doesn't seem to be filling up very quickly at the moment :P maybe because the car is still a revenue sponge.. I think my next mod is to get my bonnet vents sent off, hydrodipped and fitted. I went and got a quote from powerflow for a CAT-BACK exhaust but they quoted £700 which I thought was superbly steep. (Maybe cause I want custom tips 😉) Although if the vents don't happen soon my next mod, hopefully (permitting the other half doesn't mind) is some Recaro seats.. getting a bonus from work hopefully so crossing those fingers!
