Been traveling back to my home country for a few days. Arrived Tuesday night and had my first encounter with my car...one word to describe this long long waiting and the reaction when I saw the car: INCREDIBLE!

Man what a car...impressed from day one and most likely will be impressed forever :)

I will share some of the first pictures taken by me but I will get back with more professional once (just need to find a nice location).

I managed to get one armrest, which will also be the first step of my project. I should be able to fit it in in the next coming days and will get back once the job is done.

Second part of the project is to replace some of the interior/exterior lights (maybe you can help me a bit guys).

Moreover, I am starting to look for rims and let's see what I end up with.

Keep in touch people...cheers!

Looks awesome! Glad you're happy with the car :D

Are you going to do pictures of the bits and peices as you do them? I love watching project cars come to life :)

Welcome back tato. So the long wait is finally over for you! I noticed you hadn't been online over the last few days and was wondering if you were heading home.

Glad you've got your hands on it at last. Enjoy driving it and keep the pics coming

Paul :)

I thought something was wrong, you were usually commenting numerous times a day. My new alloys are being delivered today so make sure to look out for the pictures later on.

Till now, extremely happy with the car. I don't regret switching from my old E46 to the new Fiesta.

Sure, I will try to post as much as possible. First is the armrest, but now I am driving all day...

Congratulations on the new car mate. Can't wait to see what you do with it. I really liked the alloys on the two other white Fiestas in your picture gallery.

Thanks mate! Now I am starting the search for rims...don't know if I should get the original 17 inch from Ford or spice it up and get something different.

Thanks guys for your comments.

In the last days I've been driving a lot, like most of you when you first got the car, that's one reason why I was a bit lazy to add pictures here. Here are some:

Few questions guys:

All the light bulbs (license plate, feet) are 501 bulbs? What kind of bulbs I need for the fog lights?

Cheers!

Managed to add the armrest (Armster) today and I am happy with it. The only small issue is that after drilling 3 holes I've realized that the left back one was not aligned so I did not clip that one anymore because the armrest seems very stable. Anyway, will post some pictures soon after I take them out of the memory card.

Keep your eyes open ;)

Looks really good - I am (im)patiently waiting from my Fozen White Zetec S to be built. Currently I am one month down, with two left to go!

I am also coming from an E46. Which model did you have? I had a 325ti Compact which I really loved. The straight six sounded lovely, especially near the red line. It was also silky smooth and was able to soak up big distances quickly and comfortably. Unfortunately it liked Super Unleaded (a lot) and cost a lot to run; rear tyres didn't last long and cost a lot (255 35 18's), suspension components are consumables in the world of BMW etc. Great car though, and I really do miss it (just not the associated costs).
