  1. New Focus Owner

    Hi All, total newbie to the whole car scene. I recently purchased a 2009 mk2 (facelift) Focus Titanium 1.8 petrol. Probably a stupid question as most newbies ask.... Is there a way to incease the power? I searched high and low for turbo kits etc but cant seem to find anything for my particular model. Ive found tonnes for 1.6 zetec or 1.8 zetec or 2.0 rs/st but theyre all diesel apart from the rs/st Any suggestions? (stop looking?) lol . I dont know much about cars but im competent enough to do an internet search and it just looks like this isnt possible specifically for my 1.8 petrol engine? Any advice would be greately appriciated. Thanks all
  2. Headlight Brows Legal?

    Hi everyone, I was thinking of buying some headlight brows for my fiesta s1600 (from triple r composites). Does any one know if they are legal, or if my car will fail its MOT with them installed? https://www.triplercomposites.com/product-page/fiesta-mk7-headlight-brows I have contacted them, and they aren't aware of any issues regarding cars failing MOTs. Obviously I don't want to fit something that could get me pulled over by the police etc... Any help would be appreciated
  3. Mods

    Hello everybody...picking my new fiesta ST Line up on saturday and just curious as to what little mods people have done to their cars. Looking to do a little bit to the interior of mine
  4. Alright, so I installed AIRTEC Stage 2 induction kit. I took it out for a skoot and I noticed once I put my foot down there was a whistle coming from the passenger side... I am completely lost on why its making this weird sound and would appreciate any help or suggestions!
  5. Progressively adding subtle changes to my car. From getting Y design Ford alloys in black to carbon wrapping the interior and adding mud flaps. Let's see your mods! I'll post mine at a later date.
  6. Rhys

    Hi there, i'm new to FOC and have a ford fiesta Mk6, petrol, 1.25 engine. Im new to modding and tuning cars but looking to learn as much as I can. I want to start by inproving my horsepower and top speed and improving the general look of my fiesta for a more sporty feel, any advice and tips would be great thanks :)

  8. Hi, I want to fit eyebrows onto my race red ford fiesta mk7 and I know there are already lots of threads but I can't seem to find any coloured? Do people just buy and paint themselves or get a professional and how easy are they to fit? If im gluing things I really don't want to mess it up... Many thanks Tom.
  9. My modifications so far..

    Here are a few pictures of the mods I've carried out to my focus thus far. 1.) All new front bumper grilles & painted fog surrounds. 2.) Foot well lighting that lights up when you open the doors. 3.) Removed air box completely, fitted induction filter. Fitted oil catch can, and replaced breather hose from engine to air box with blue hose to oil can, and then back into the intake.
  10. Hi, I want to lower my car but I don't know weather to buy Eibach or H&R lowering springs? I only want to lower the car by about 30-35mm and I can buy either and have them fitted for almost the same cost. Anyone got either of these on their 1.0 Fiesta and can share their experiences or thoughts? Many thanks, Tom :)
  11. Hi as you can tell from the title I have a 1.0 eco-boost and just wondered on what people's thought were. I've looked on YouTube and I'm sort of favouring non resonated but is it louder than the videos seem to suggest... Will be interesting to see if people have had this mod done! Thanks in advance for any advice!
  12. Hi, I was thinking of getting some H & R 35mm lowering springs installed onto my 1.0 mk7 Fiesta. Does anything need to be re- aligned? Also looking at the milltek cat back non resonated system. Will this affect my mot, emissions or tax? Thanks in advance for any help 😁
  13. I'm am sorry for what you are about to read😂 I am a rookie Hi, I am 17 and as my first car I have a Ford Fiesta Zetec 2010 black. I have never been into cars but now I own one I am constantly looking at things to improve or make the car look better on the eye. I have put a zetec s spoiler on but am unsure about anything else? Been looking at diffusers for the rear end but haven't got a clue how to fit it or if any garage would be fine doing it? If so what price? Also exhausts anyone know any cheap but well made ones? If so would it be expensive to get fitted at a standard garage. Also My alloys are silver have been looking to get blacked out, would it make the car look any better? Any other ideas? Wont let me upload any photos unfortunately Cheers
  14. Zetec Mod Restrictions

    So was quite upset to get this from Triple R: "The low line kit will only be suitable if you have the Zetec S body kit on your car. " I've only the Zetec, so what are my options? Get it lowered? already had it tinted and remapped. Also, does the Zetetc S honeycomb grill fit the zetec? how about spoiler or anythint from the ST?
  15. Hi everyone i bought this car last year and will attach a photo of the stock car... I then did a load of modifications and was wondering if my insurers need to know about all of them? They already know about the tinted windows and badges but that's about it... I also wrapped the roof and wing mirrors, changed the front grille, painted the stock wheels gloss black, painted calipers and wheel drums and also added the st spoiler onto the back of the car. Will they be expecting my car to be exactly the same or would I get away with the spoiler for example? Is not massive and OTT, just standard Ford make... It will be be interesting to hear what people have to say! Thanks in advance! 👍🏻
  16. Zetec 1.0 Ecoboost Mods

    Hi guys, So first post and I'll happily admit I'm a complete and utter newbie when it comes to cars but I really want to make something of my new Zetec Ecoboost 1.0. Pic attached. I've had a new sound system put in, engine remapped (added 60 bhp!), red and black seats and I'm going to get it lowered with Pumspeed coils but I have some really really basic questions: Are my wheels/alloys 15 or 16 inch? Can you put any size wheel/alloy on a car or does it have to be the same size wheels they are now? Any recommendations on some good alloy choices or place to get some? What are some easy mods to make that will make a real difference aesthetically, is painting the alloys black worth it and something I can do myself? Where can I get spoiler from and is it something I can also do myself? Sorry, real basic stuff I know but anyone got a Zetect ecoboost 1.0 with mods and want to share? (not the ST line as everytime I see that it makes me wish I went for that instead!) J
  17. Hi everyone! I really want to add some rally style mud flaps to my MK7 Fiesta.. I'm thinking performance creations off eBay? Anyone got any suggestions? I...think I'll go for the Kaylan as they are more durable but should I go for red or black? Would be really helpful if someone has fitted them too... so I know what to expect! Thanks!
  18. Zetec Mod Newbie Questions

    So, my car: Fiesta 2014 1.0L EcoBoost 100PS, Race Red VIN Number: WF0CXXGAKCEY21421Registration Number: GJ14YRX My questions: 1) Does that make my car Mk 7 or Mk 7.5 and is that simply the difference between the Zetec and Zetec S (How are these different, I know the ST is in its own league) 2) I'm after getting the ST look plus more. Currently have had an engine remap from 98 to 160bhp courtesy of Celtic Tuning. Do I need an induction kit and/or can it get any faster? 3) Anyone got a HoneyCoombe Grill/ST Spoiler/Splitters/Deflectors/ST Seats they're selling or can they put me to the best place to get them as ebay not coming up gold. Bascially, anything ST related. 4) Thinking of getting the Lowing Suspension kit by Eibach from pumaspeed but can I lower the car with splitters too? 5) Can I put 16" alloys on when I've 15" alloys as standard and is wheelbase a good place to shop? Honestly, the amount of money I'm about to spend to get my ecoboost 1.0 to just look like the ST, I might as well have got the ST. Answers to above appreciated plus any other recommendations/advice/warnings!
  19. Note: I've previously had a thread/diary on the KA Owners Club forum to keep a track of how my car has come along, but here seems to much more active due to there being so many more members. Some pics/wording may be copy & pasted over from there to save me the type of typing it again. I got my KA for my 17th birthday (2013) and since then I've not really done much other than replace the stock muffler & tailpipe. I did have some black dice dust caps to replace the standard black ones, but they got stolen. :) Anyway, some pictures (white one is mine, black one is my brothers that he got in October just gone):
  20. Hey, new member here! I'm Nathan, 21, from Bradford. Had my zetec s for around a year now but only just got into the whole "modding scene" so I'm still learning... be kind Not going for any mods too big or too expensive just yet so only got the Halos and the Batman v Superman badge. Birthday this month so once that's out of the way I'll hopefully be adding something new to the car if anybody has any ideas. Thanks:)
  21. Ideas needed

    Hi all, I have done some baby modifications to my car so far... Had my alloys refurbished to a charcoal grey/black, fitted wind deflectors, ford motorsport number plate holders and pressed carbon plates. (Will get round to posting some pics eventually). My windows are booked in to be tinted soon. I'd love some more ideas for simple ish things I can do as don't think I'll be able to tackle anything too complicated. Thanks in advance, Emily x
  22. 1.0 ecoboost st-line

    Hi guys. New to the forum, had fun wasting many hours browsing through the topics. I got my st-line(140) last week and am loving it. I've noticed that the engine has the promise a really good sound but doesn't quite deliver. Anyone put an induction kit in theirs, not worried about performance at the moment, and if so how does it sound? Thanks guys.
  23. Fiesta ST Mod list

  24. Hi all, Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and hope you have a wonderful new year. I have a Mk2 2006 1.8 TDCi Climate. Other then the features as standard its pretty basic. Coming from a Mk1.5 Ghia I am missing a few things so decided to get them installed. But need help on knowing what to get. Firstly I want some interior lights in the back. Instead of cutting in the roof liner I was thinking of getting some white 12v LED strips and placing it somewhere (Not decided on that one yet) but preferably a strip either side at the back. What cable would be best for this. I am thinking of tapping straight into the front interior light for this so it comes on and off at the same time and what LED strips would be best? Secondly I want to put a 12v socket in the rear of the car and the boot. The rear of the car will not be doing much other charging kids tablets and the boot one will be used every now and again for a portable fridge for when I go off camping. (The wiring for the one in the boot is not present. I have checked) so what cable would be best for this and what sockets? Thirdly in time I would like to add ambient lighting to the interior just a nice blue glow that comes on when I turn the lights on. So only when dark really. No point in the day. Will not see it. Where is the best place to tap into the lights for this and what strips would you suggest? Many thanks for any help given
  25. Finally bought myself a Focus after having owned nearly every other car out there, I wanted a 5 door tdci but couldn't decide on a Zetec S or Titanium so in the end I got a Titanium and am fitting a few Zetec S bits & few other mods to give it an edge cos I'm not old enough yet for the full chrome n slippers look. Only had the car just over a month and made a few upgrades thanks to ideas on this forum. So far I've fitted an EGR blanking plate to the engine and I changed the chrome on the front end with a Zetec S grill and an RS bonnet lipI then changed the heater controls over, nice 2 minute job and look so much better, especially at nightalso done the led lights, including all interior, glove box, footwells & boot, changed rear licence plate lights for led modules which are much brighter than just changing bulbsthen I was lucky enough to find some genuine Zetec S pedals on ebay for £25 so snapped them up swapped the chrome tailgate trim on the hatchback for a colour coded black one, should ave been a 10mins job but whoever had the car before had broken 2 of the brackets on the chrome trim so decided to bond it on instead. Nightmare!! Took ages to get it of and of course it started raining half way through, sorted now thoZetec S tailgate spoiler going on next, it's sat in garage waiting till rain stops. So if anyone needs a panther black roof spoiler let me know Pics to follow
