I think they are the perfect wheels for the saloon...i just cant find em anywhere for a decent price!

Dont think i'll attempt the silver trims, im not up to that standart of car DIY yet:-)

I think realistically i could get the back bumper sprayed, get some 30mm springs and try to source a CC front bumper....just those mods alone would improve its look and handling a bit.

The 2.0TDCI MK2 Focus saloon is such an under-rated car..surprised i dont see more of em on the road cos can get em for a cracking price now. I actually prefer it to the hatch. Have read a lot of reviews that say the saloon actually handles much better than the hatch as standard.

Are you taking ya car to the Simply Ford fair at Beaulieu this sunday??

p.s front grill and lights look class....great job


I've never attended that show before and its a bit short notice now and a fair old treck from me so no I won't be there, I will be at Fiesta In The Park if your there?

Thanks for comment on grill and lights :)

Neither have I but heard that its meant to be a goodun. Well i'll keep an eye out for any modded MK2 Focus saloons at the show, and will post pics here....doubt there will be any tho:-( dont think will be able to make Fiesta In The Park:-(

Just one other question.....did the bumper from the MK2 CC you fitted just fit straight on to ya mk2 saloon.....or wasnt it quite as simple as that?

Well finally after lots of research, frustration and time trying to source a spoiler for a MK2 Saloon I have just had news that the spoiler I ordered a while back is now in stock (IN GERMANY) so its now just a case of waiting..... :unsure:

Andy,

your saloon is looking amazing mate.

I remember your old TDDi, it was a very tidy looking machine. Obviously I've been out of touch with the forums lately as I didn't know you'd got rid of your TDDi - what happened to it?

Did you have an accident, or did you decide to strip for parts and scrap the shell?

Was getting tired and the car had done 155k and the back arch was going and it was time to stop spending.....

Got much more money breaking it to a bare shell than I would have selling it as it was.
