I haven't been on here properly for a while and seeing as I just cleaned my car I thought what better time for an update.

Interior
On the inside I've changed the bulbs in the interior light for L.E.D's as they are brighter and look a much nicer shade of white/blue, I've also changed the Interior Light for one with the Submarine Red L.E.Ds that are a nice touch and match up with the rest of the interior. I've also added red L.E.D strips in both footwells and above the glovebox. I opted for Interior Pack 2 when I ordered my car so I've got the red illuminated scuff plates and illuminated gear knob; lots of red lights! :lol: Finally put red DMB Gel Overlay on the steering wheel badge.

Exterior
On the outside I've added Red DMB Gel Overlays to the badges, changed the 16" alloys for 17's that have been powder-coated in an Anthracite color, changed the headlights for 6k H.I.D's, changed the sidelights to L.E.D's, de-tangoed the front indicators, had the plastics sprayed gloss black, replaced the fog lights with L.E.D's and changed the front grille to the european parts sports style. I've also had all the windows tinted; can't remember what percentage they are tinted too but the front ones are done to the legal limit.

'Performance'
The fiesta is no performance car by any stretch of the imagination but it's perfect for me at the moment with insurance prices and my age. In terms of performance I havn't done alot to her; fitted a J1 Performance Intake and that's about it.

Overall Opinion after 2 Years of Ownership & Future Plans
After two years of ownership I'm still very happy with the car, like I said for me its the perfect balance of power and cost of ownership and is suitable for all my needs. Once you drop the seats I was really surprised just how much stuff you can fit into her! Future plans are to spray the drums on the back black as they have some nice surface rust forming and to do the front callipers red, maybe get it mountuned in the future depending on funds and other cars available. I also want to add daylight running lights into the front grille as I've seen on here (sorry can't remember whois done it) they look fantastic set into the sports grille. Also want to add red DMB Overlays to the alloys, just been too lazy to get them ordered.
Any questions or problems feel free to ask me :)

Looks good mate.

Mucking about with the lighting is about as far as I'll be able to go with my Zetec S because its a lease car. I'm going to add blue vision bulbs, de-tango, led number plate bulbs and the submarine lighting. I may add the illuminated gear stick because I can just remove it when it goes back.

I'd like to add the Montune carbon front splitter and wrap the rear diffuser in carbon but that may be dodgy with insurance. If I could, I'd get a Bluefin (its a derv).

Looks really good mate, surface rust on the drums looks horrible so I'll be painting mine too.

I too want DRLs :D

Thanks mate, you're progress thread is always giving me new ideas and motivation!

I'd definably recommend it, Ebay is you're best friend for cheap L.E.D's and make such a big difference
