This is my car, I've had it since September of last year and love it!

I'm in to modding my car, and have currently not done a lot but i have plans to do stuff pretty soon, also have a few mods to be fitted.

Currently have LED sidelights, MTEC bulbs all round front, figuring how to fit my rear footwell lights, have some lwoering springs waiting to be fitted, will be buying a milltek exhaust beginning of next month, along with a K&N 57 induction kit. i have some colour coding to be done to the fog light covers and brows, im looking into buying the MS design lip kit and an focus ST spoiler.
im looking at buying new wheels, possibly Mondeo Zetec or ST220 or maybe Focus ST wheels but its getting a bit too common if im honest. the only other thing im wanting to do next is tint the windows
have done a couple of interior mods, which is a Richbrook gear knob and some Aluminium heater knobs.

So thats my Foci, hope you enjoy. comments welcome.

And please move this post if its in the wrong place, thanks :D

little update, fitted some new headlights.... :D

had some trouble to begin with but soon sorted.

heres how it went

Headlight removed

Posted Image

Found this connector taped up.

Posted Image

Which funnily enough fitted here (my stock headlights didnt have a plug, obviously)

Posted Image

so, swapped bulbs over and re fitted the headlight. and got this

Posted Image

with a bit of force, I managed to move the lens to the right so it faces straight

Posted Image

compared to the stock headlight

Posted Image

Posted Image

Went to fit the other side and found this plug. anybody got any ideas to what it is?

It sits directly under the headlight

Posted Image

How she looks with both fitted

Posted Image

as you can see, it got dark pretty quick and I was relying on the street light

We have light!!

Posted Image

And as you can see in the above pic, the headlight positioning is way off with the headlight i had problems with

Posted Image

turns out that the bulb was in upside down :(

haha now sorted

Looks good, maybe the little wiring connector is for something that would have been an option when the car was new. Who knows, but I do like the new headlights.

EDIT: Ooops forgot you'd said you've had the car since last year :blink:

Hi,nice car

That picture second from last with you inside the car looking out , the headlight on the right is slightly lower than the left , is it meant to be like this , I only ask because its the same on my focus , I've always presumed its like that so the right light does not shine into oncoming traffic as much?

thanks

The headlamps are meant to point down a certain amount and also slightly to the left. They check on the MOT by parking the car in front of the box thing (don't know the name lol) and adjust if need be.

Sometimes you'll see French or Italian cars with orange things stuck on the headlight units and that's to help refract the light to the left as they are pointed slightly to the right for use on their roads.

My old Punto was exactly like this and the right hand side dipped beam was pointed down more, whereas on my Fiesta it's not as visible. I think it depends on who's adjusted them on the MOT (if they have been adjusted). Nothing to worry about anyway, only if people are flashing you it means you're dazzling them but any MOT garage can adjust them for you if you are worried :D

EDIT: Or to adjust them park up against a wall lol, but probably not the best way!

firstly thanks all for the comments!! :D

the connector under the passenger headlight i believe is to be for washers?

the headlights are the ones with the AFS (Adaptive front lighting system) they are genuine Ford projector/directional lights, and the second plug the 3rd pic down is for the adaptive lighting, but to get this working i need about £450 because i need the steering sensor, another thing and the ECU needs to be updated..

in the pic 2nd from bottom - the reason the beam is pointing down to the ground is because i put the bulb in upside down...

These were VERY hard to get hold off and it took me months.. but as soon as i bought one side I had to buy the other... they were really expensive thought

im glad you asked :D

next up, will be to fit the eibach pro lowering springs, and once recieved fit my Milltek sport exhaust :D

And, in no particular order
18" alloys, Mondeo ZS/ST or just follow suit and get a set of Foci ST wheels
MS design lip kit
ST spoiler
Tinted Windows
Some coilovers ( I think i may want to go lower, but will see how she is once i get the springs on)
Rear footwell lighting
ST Cloth Recaro's - Blue trim
Upgrade front discs and pads, possible rear disc conversion
Also want a Enclosed induction kit, something like the Pipercross Viper ;)

Had one on my MK1 and loved it,
