Hi all

Just introducing myself
I am the proud new owner of a Mk7 1.25 zetec fiesta 3dr in Ink Blue i think the colour is called.

I have currently only done around 200 miles in it but am amased at how far ford have come since the older fiestas!!
I will get a pic up as soon as i get myself my own laptop (unfortunately my stuident house was burgled last friday and we all know how long insurance companies take!!!)

This is basically a prewarning for the amount of questions i will be asking on here!
Thanks and looking forward to swapping ideas

Rob

I previously owned a '89 AX which was basically still in showroom cfondition wen I had it in 2005/6 (it had 4000 miles on the clock!!!!), a peugeot 106 and a vw polo.

Here is a picture of my car when i bought it

And here a cheeky one showing of my friends new quad bike too! :P

Posted Image

The main plans i have for the car are
tinted supaglass
wheels (possibly focus st170 wheels)
mudflaps?
armrest (i have found a thread on here about this foc armrest thread however the armrest i want (in the picture with the zetec interior) is no longer available from the link provided and cant find it anywhere else)
shorter arial
subwoofer and amplifier (and eventually speakers too)
upgrade bulbs, maybe change the footwell light colours
... and a few other things...

WHat are people's thoughts? ANd any help anyone can give on any of the above would be greatly appreciated

Thanks
Rob

Nice looking Fiesta.

I would go for a stubby aeril, I've got one on my C-Max only cost me 6.99 in Halfords and is much better than the standard ford one, and it's got a good reception as well, tinted glass would be good as well, not sure on the ST170 alloys, might be a idea to photoshop it to guage opinion.

On second thoughts I'm maybe thinking the ST170 alloys would look good on the Fez, I've seen these on a mark two focus and they look ace.

Welcome Mk7_rbj,

You have my Fezza's twin, think your colour is Ocean blue (best colour in Fiesta range :D ), Ink blue is more darker shade and replaced Ocean blue, though could be the light
