Car looks good mate, i genuinelly like the colour scheme with the alloys and the body.
have you considerd fitting a clear fog light unit and adding an additional reverse light to it,
then change the reverse bulbs to some cree Q5 6000kelvin ones?
overall modification cost around £80 but worth every penny for 110watts of 6000kelvin reverse lighting.
and an ultra flat wiper for the rear would eliminate the metal frame one and sit smoother on the rear end

lol 3 spanner, where did you get the rating mate,
all i get told is that i am a spanner lol.

ive done a guide on the dual reverse modification, in my list of guides below my posts.
and if you read through the thread of the additional reverse you will see a mk2 focus member has shown how to fit dual reverse to that shape of clear fog unit. which is also the same shape as your fog unit. and the wiring principals will be the exact same on your car.

as for the wiper it will be a straight swap just remove the nut and pull the wiper from the cog teeth,
but remember to position the new wiper blade on to the cog teeth in the same location as the existing wiper or it may end up wiping too low or high.

the best way to ensure it is on the correct way,
would be to get the car dirty then change the wiper arm because you will have a line of dirt on the window where the wiper sits
so you can put the new wiper arm on the cog teeth when then new wiper sits just above the line of dirt.

heres some info on fitting taken from the ebay listing previously linked.

To fit lift up nut cover on arm undo 13mm nut
Remove Arm
Remove nut cover from Smooth arm
Fit Smooth Arm
Refit nut
Refit nut cover to smooth arm

The length of Arm AND blade from pivot point to end of blade is approx 17" and the blade used for the conversion is approx 14" long

What you get

1 Plastic Arm with nut cover and blade
