Thanks michael.. Do you have one?
Me and my friends all feel the same way.. A standard (often in crap condition!!) can really ruin a really nice car!

Have something to contribute?

Also, picked up a ford accessories brochure today and found a few cool little bits, including the armrest!! :-D (albeit for a hundred quid, and im pretty sure the 25 adaptor which comes up when you google a mk7 armrest is also needed)
Excuse the bad pics, done on my phone in mates car!!!

There is also the full range of alloy wheels in the brochure, some of which are pretty stunning!

Yeah I bought my stubby for my focus which I had three years ago when I was into modding it, then I bought a Skoda, and the stubby did not fit, but when I bought my C-Max the standard ford aeril was bent (as if it had hit a low level car park sign, so I use the stubby for shows/meets as the wife tends to use the car more than me at the minute and the standard aeril is on the car at the moment.

I like the armrest, I've got one in my C-Max, at first it took a bit of getting used to but I do like it now.

Hi RBJ, have you not considered the ZS/X-pack 17's? They look excellent, although do seem a bit susceptible to buckling and kerbing with the low profile tyres.

The Bentley alloys look awesome, what are they, 20's? :o

Yeah, the one in the pic. You can get them on the ZS with the street pack or on a Titanium with the X-pack like I've got - they're fairly lovely, bit expensive though to replace when they inevitably buckle (as everyones on here has :( )

All buckled from crashes??

Or simply too soft a compound or something and buckle from potholes?

Does anybody know if i will need ones with a resistor?

From what I gather, the alloys on the fez are not great, you hit a pothole and thats them, Luke from performance ford has this problem as well.

ANDwhat is the diff between the mk7 and mk8 fiesta??



to answer your question, some people (mainly ebay sellers) class the facelift mk6 (mk6.5) as the mk7 so then this makes the mk7 the mk8 in their books when its really not...
AND the number plate bulbs just buy any old 501's, what i chucked in mine

and as for mods to do too it... defo recommend gettin the 12 cluster 501 led in red for the footwells! and if you fancy a little elecy job try the DRL's like i have (avatar) :) and wire up rear footwell lights... makes the car look 'naughty word' hot at night

Thanks Nico for clearing up the Mk7/mk8 question
I've been searching for the wrong thing on ebay all this time then!!!

And the red footwell LEDs are definately a must. And have you yourself fitted the rears to a 3dr? Or have any idea how to do it neatly.


And, the pics of teh rubber mats

I would have liked the drivers one to be longer but it sits perfectly on top of my original dealer supplied cheapo mats anyway
