Hi Lenny.

Thanks for the link. I will get some better pics uploaded in the daylight.

I have had a quote of £250 to have the roof wrapped in raised carbon fibre from a reputable local company so that is definately on the cards. Might to the fog surrounds and wing mirrors too.

My main focus at the moment though is trying to work out what the best air filter upgrade would be, heard bad things about induction kits sucking in hot air and actually losing performance but I cannot see an upgraded (K&N style) pannel filter making any difference. The BMC one you linked me to in a previous post looks like a good option but is a little pricey. I guess you get what you pay for...

Any Ideas how I can fin out if the car has allready been remapped? I had the 115 1.8 tdci before and this one is much, MUCH quicker. (A lot more than I would expect from the extra 20bhp) I dont want to fork out £400 to find out I have not increased anything and possibly made it worse. I wish I knew someone else with one for comparrison.


hi mate,
the wrap will look sweet on the white, and if you look at the st rear spoiler it has a kind of bowl round curve on the top roof section,
if i was wrapping the roof i would wrap in the curve of the spoiler too that would put a nice finish to the wrap at the rear instead of a full white rear spoiler.

and my best advise for the power would be perhaps a code red induction kit.

and look on you tube at videos of focus 2.0 0-60 times etc. and see if the match what your currently experiencing in yours at the momment.

That's a nice looking carbon lip... I'm still planning to do it but I just wanted shot of the chrome!!

Also a guide will follow for removal/vinyling/painting the lip!!

So... My DMB overlays have been superb... Cant fault them!

However the ones i bought for my other half... AWFUL!!!

the only one that hasnt peeled off was the steering wheel one!!

I rsorted to gorilla glue and superglue in the end!

And its not like i didnt do teh same thing either.. Im convinced it has something to do with the fact i have a silver backing, and hers is white... but i obviously cant prove that without buying more!!

I have the carbon print ones on the front badge and the steering wheel,
they both had silver backing and are on the car since november 2010

i have a blue badge on the rear and it had a black backing, its been on the car since november 2011 and its perfect too mate,
so as you say it must be somthing to do with the white backing,

Little update,

Looked into the footwell lighting the other day, and to my surprise i found out that the bulb holders were already there!

Now not getting too excited, i asjed my mate for a couple of Bulbs (I was at his garage at the time) and to my amazement, after putting my free bulbs into the holders, they lit up!!

RESULT!!

guess that means i better get on with the other jobs on the list...

- Twin Reverse Light Conversion - Half Way Through........
- Colour Code Fog Surrounds
- Colour Code Bonnet Lip
- iPod integration for stereo (not sure how yet... but I'm researching!) Not iPod but MP3 USB Stick... As Good As...
- Footwell Lighting For FREE!! Result
- Twin Boot Lights

Hey,

How's it going? I like how it looks!

I'm thinking of doing the bonnet strip black, and also my fog light surrounds!

Have you done your fogs yet?
