Thanks guys.

I must admit the wheels, for me, make all the difference. Looking forward to getting the private plate on :)

Have something to contribute?

Car looks mint.
Love the alloys too. Some red caliper paint in the same red as the S badges would tie in nicely with the large alloys and badges on the side fenders.
Then gloss black grills and colour code the bonnet lip.

Loving the sound of this! Colour code or carbon wrap the lip...hmmmmmm...

No updates of late, apart from my new (standard) alloy centre caps arriving.

Are you going to put some DMB's on the centre caps or keep them stock. Either way they will look good.
Have you saw the TrippleRcomposites gloss black front splitter for the focus ZetecS ?

Unsure at the moment. Thinking of perhaps keeping the centre caps and badges standard for now, although in th future I may well go for the carbon effect replacements :)

And yes I have, looks very very nice!

So glad they are on, they look great :) One needs a bit of damage sorted and I need to get a centrecap for one of them, but all in all quite happy with them:

Hi,
Nice job with the car ;)
I don't know if you pay attention to this, but after you changed the wheels, did you noticed any alteration in fuel consumption or ride confort?

Not at all if I'm honest.

How do you find your radio reception now?
I bought one of those aerials months ago but was put off fitting it as I'd heard reports of crap signal.

Quite like the idea of that, although I'm missing the actual centre off one wheel.

Fine mate, no problems at all to be honest.

I want to do the bonnet lip in this carbon fibre wrap so will have a look through the threads this evening, I'm thinking of attempting to wrap something small around the house first as a practice, not too good with this kind of thing :unsure:

It's easy enough to do mate. The lip should definitely be easy enough. Just keep the wrap warm n take your time. Don't rush it.

What else you planning on wrapping with all that lot lol?
