springs paint crack in short nope done it on my old p[assat and the paint was fine for 2 years before needing touched up doesnt crack

looking at those lights in my honest opinion youll get pulled as the number wiont be visible from a distance only parts of youre reg will be visible thats why i removed mine had them n 2 days when the fuzz pulled me and pointed out they needed to be changed

Artscot, amazing mate you have talent and your focus look immaculate!!! really impressed only if i had time and the money... one day soooon!!!

Those LEDS do look the same as mine, must agree with artscot led's do not fill up all of the number plate, however i like the look of them, they reflect of the road and do look smart i think.

to be honest all they can do is ask you to have themn replaced though now an mot station has to confirm the repair before you take the slip to the police station up to you leave them in you might never get pulled from what i read in the dark put them on take 20 paces back and if you can read the plate youre fine.

threads are here to be hijacked :D



dami3n just start off bit by bit mate do one thing at a time and you get there in the end now to hit the interior lol

Lol im the same i set out to do something simple like fix a bulb then next thing ive ordered a set of led rear's, clear side repeaters and angel eyes haha good times!

Cant you just fit a new steering wheel and refit your own centre and air bag if you don't blow it up in ur face which i admit would be cruel to laff but i honestly wouldn't be able to help myself! Get the arm rest done and order yourself a set of leathers man lol

not worth the hassle there are these from ebay done one for a mondeo you have to stitch them youreself takes half an hour but they are qaulity leather and look like the original http://cgi.ebay.co.u...=item48351fc569

the mrs wont justify the price for some of the leathers for sale to be honest and to be honest too cold in the winter too warm in the summer had leather before and wasnt all that keen

They are cold in winter il give you that but personal preference is now id never buy a car that doesn't have them like my misses is trying to crack at me to get a corsa c sri it'l have to be the one with the full heated leather same goes for the astra coupe lol. The focus sort has half leathers there just st seats with black centres rather than blue?

My steering wheels only worn in one corner from where it was a hot day and i had buggered my hand so it was bandaged and it kept sticking to the wheel :blink:

I hate um to but a 1.8 sri is luring me lol shes trying to buy a corsa anyway so hopefully she'll buy one and shut up nagging me to get one famout last words.. but yeah ive noticed the price is shooting off alot of people i know are hunting out sets of leather seats. Your lucky in the fact yours in a 5door so you can nab a set out of a ghia where as mine is a 3door i have to wait for someone to write off a special edtion or a st170.

Saw a focus identical to yours about an hr ago in BnQ made me laff because it was a !Removed! tip covered in muck seats looked ragged and wheels scuffed to high holey hell youd of had a cron!
