Hey,

I'm learning to drive atm, i bought my bro's car off him which is the basic silver Fiesta Mk4 (with alloy wheels for some reason) and i was wondering if there was anything subtle i could change first on the car, not too expensive too, i was thinking something like brake calipers painted or something? any other ideas welcome.

Cheeeeers guys

Yeah cheers, I was thinking either red or yellow? and yeah as for the bigger stuff I'm waiting for a couple/few years for my insurance to drop, hopefully no points or crashes would help lol

Tis ok and I would say good old Halfrauds is the best choice, if not a trust worthy car place where you know the paint it the real deal
