I'm not into painting calipers in yours unless they come that way ie Brembos etc.

There is a MS Designs lip spoiler fitted to the boot.....

cheers wezzy_jess for reposting your pics.

gotta say what a fantastic job you have done there. B)

looks great, given me a kick up the rear to try some of these mods.

start with the little ones and work my way up from there, and if mine looks half as good as your then thats a result.

cheers again andy.

Left my Focus with Nick @ Clean Detail of Doncaster (http://www.mobile-de...n-Yorkshire.php"]http://www.mobile-de...n-Yorkshire.php) for a Winter Paint Protection while the snow has been around i've been using my 4x4 :smile:

You don't think my Focus is covered in all that salt and rubbish left to rot whilst i'm using my truck do you LOL

Well its coming up to 2 years of owning my Focus so that can only mean one thing the dreaded insurance renewal.....

Had a renewal quote through from Flux that I'm currently with, gave them a quick call asking if they can be more competitive to save me shopping around in which they replied we'll match anyone's quote if you can get it cheaper which is not what I asked.

Gave A-Plan a call and spoke to a guy named Chris which I have to say is a great chap to talk to as he fully understood that every mod to my car are genuine Ford parts or classed as an optional extra from a dealer when purchased new, privacy glass, upgraded 18" Genuine Ford Wheels, Eibach sports springs.

Chris brought the renewal quote from Flux down £100 therefore I've taken out my policy with A-Plan as Flux should have been competitive from the start! Oh and they offer great kitcar cover for when it comes to re-insuring my Westfield in May

Well its something I've been thinking about for a good while due to the wheels sitting so far in the archers and finally picked up some H&R hub centric spacers for the right price decided to go 20mm all round and I have to say the cheapest most effective mod I've done yet!!!!!
