Hey all.
I am new to the forums.
Ever since I passed my test I have had a Micra, which I kept for 6.5 years as it was simply fantastic whilst I was doing my udnergraduate as it never broke.
However it is time for an upgrade and this week I am buying my dad's Focus off him as it is in very good nick.

The car is:
Focus 2007 57 reg
2.0 TDCI
Ghia
77,000 miles
Euro 4 diesel - No DPF :)
Sea grey

Wheels need a refurb as they have that 'white rust' effect on them where water has got under the paintwork.
The price was £4000 as that is what Motorpoint offered him on trade in towards his new Focus!

I live in Loughborough as my postgraduate is at the University there.

I am looking for somewhere to get the wheels refurbed and also for any potential mods I can do to the car.

Have something to contribute?

Thanks :)
My plans for the car are:
1) Refurb the wheels. They aren't kerbed but the paint and centre caps look a mess. I won't do this right away as with my old car I didn't worry about the wheels (they were just old wheel trims) and I need to learn to be more aware of wheels hitting kerbs.
2) A remap. Not saying I will, but I will look into it
3) Perhaps spray the front fog light surrounds to make the car look a bit smarter
4) The car is a Ghia trim so has a horrible wood effect around the stereo which would look far better in brushed aluminium

I forgot to mention in the first post, the car is a pre-facelift.

Might even add a sat nav stereo. I haven't looked into it though and the Ford one has quite a small screen.
