Hello One and All,

I have had my lovely Fiesta S1600 a few months now and I am loving ownership so far! :-)

I have already some simple but I feel very effective mods that keep the car OEM with a subtle twist and also paying homage to its bigger and faster brother the MK2 RS.

I hope people like this, I think the white and gloss black areas look really trick and smart.

I have had all the front matt plastic areas done, this is the front fog lights, front grilles and lower splitter and the rear diffuser.

I do apologise about the quality and location of the photos, these are from my iPhone. I do intend to a proper photoshoot before the bad weather gets here at a later date. :-)

Enjoy,
Ross

Yes matey, because they are easily removable things, it was a straight forward job. I like keeping things original, bit with a different take ;-)

Cheers though

I am tempted to get a Zetec/Zetec-S/S1600 rear diffuser and toying with the idea of doing it gloss black to match my Panther Black Paint (and maybe soon to be gloss black alloys)

I would say go for it, it is relatively un expensive job! :) Although there would of course be more expense for you as you don't have the parts already

Well I paid that, but i got an excellent job done and I hated that matt plastic, it cheapened the car so I didn't mind :)


Thanks though mate, I am pleased with it. :wub:

The steeda guys are at Bespoke Performance parts
but if you go onto foc.com then they offer a reduced price to members, i was £182 delivered for mine. pretty steep compared to the mountune one but i seriously doubt it anywhere near the same quality

I don't think 300 quid is expensive but hey ho! :-) I am going to get some lowering springs next, other than that, I am not too sure, I have seen a nice strut brace on puma speeds website as well (just for some under bonnet bling of course) ;-)

That will be cool do get it done when you get your new splitter fitted. :)

Very Nice!

I'm currently in the process of spraying some parts of mine Gloss Black (want to see how well they turn out)

I doubt the will look anything like yours though :P

Cheers matey, why won they look as good?? They did the MK2 RS like this from the factory (I know its cost issues why they didn't) but I feel it should have been done from the start :)

I asked for the glossiest they could do to be honest. Although the body shop I used know me and know what I wanted and I also took along some pictures of the MK2 RS as a pointer ;)
