Could always spray your interior plastics the same colour as your car(depending on the colour) have seen a frozen white fez with frozen white interior plastics and it looks the bees knees

Can somebody help me? I'm looking at some little changes in the interior. and I find that some Fiestas has on the ventilator opener in the silver ring the silver plastic, but i have in my grey plastic, like in this picture. does somebody know where to find this grey plastic (in the red square) but in silver color?

Easy, from the front side stick a flat screwdriver, and stck out the front side, then just sligthly pull the rear side of the light out. Be cautious, it's a bit tricky.

I'm not sure where you'd find the small plastic parts in a different colour, but they do easily pull off the vent and shouldn't be too hard to spray whatever colour you want.

Here's a few ideas from what I've seen from other posts. You could spray interior plastics/centre console to a different theme such as glossy black like on the Fiesta Metal or you get the pieces vinyl wrapped in something like carbon fibre effect. Does your car have interior pack? If not you could add the interior pack gear stick/handbrake and gaiters. Self adhesive carpets for rear seat backs to protect the exposed metal and looks better (if your car doesn't already have them). You can also cover some of the lower plastic parts in the foot well with the carpet, quite subtle but looks better. Foot well lighting, adding usb/bt aftermarket if you haven't already got it. Break open the secret compartment.

The Focus ST interior light is a great investment! You'll be able to find it somewhere in bens thread, its got a black body and the red ambient lights light up the centre console, gear stick and cupholders when the sidelights/headhlights are on. really easy to fit too.

i went on to get nice white lights for the interior to match my sidelights so its the same shade when i unlock on the key and the interior and sides light up

can it be fitted without modding it as in can i just remove mines and it will fit right in ?

It will fit right in place yeah but you need to run a wire along the trim and down the pillar to wire it up to your sidelights

i once saw a kid on another forum who put a boost gauge in the circular air vent on the drivers side. looked quite decent ;) maybe an option.

FIESTA_MAD, Yeh, the interior ceiling light with the map reading lights are all 501/W5W/T10, have changed all mine to white LED's. Looks quite good in my opinion, the best bulbs IMO are the 5SMD ones. Something like this, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-x-Xenon-5-LED-SMD-Car-Side-Light-Sidelight-White-Lamp-Bulbs-T10-W5W-501-168-/270880388170?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item3f11bab44a Pity there in pairs really.

Having been used to the ample interior lighting of the S-Max I was a little disappointed to see that my Zetec S has just 1 bulb in the whole interior.

I can't see that being any good in the winter, so today I started the first of a series of internal lighting mods.

After searching around in my spares cupboard, I found some flexible LED strip and after removing the roof light I gave it a LED makeover.

It's going to be quite bright in the dark!

More mods to follow...
