I love silver cars.
My last one was green and people kept trying to drive into it.
Previous two cars were silver.
My work wagon is white (albeit with the battenberg decals) and it's a sod for dirt and grime.
Seeing as I have to wash it before I go on duty, it's a pain in the proverbial.
One of our traffic units uses an unmarked silver ST and it looks mean.
I keep trying to swap plates between it and my own car but they keep noticing for some reason. ;)

I only just got into it a few months back when I had the full respray but love detailing now

Iv got the wolf chemicals hardbody waiting to go on jus waiting for the weather to fix up clayed n done a pre seal polish n then this weather hit lol
My Mrs cars a 1.8 zetec so a remap on that isn't gonna really do anything lol unlike your diesel though massive gains


Wolfs hard body is cracking stuff, have to be seriously prepped though for it to work properly

Great thread, like myself, had the car a while and haven't done anything to drastic, but now I'm getting a lot of ideas from here, just not the money to match!

Can I ask you where you got your rear windows tinted and how much? I'm looking at getting my rear windows and the tears done, but not the hatch one, as I'd still like to be able to see at night!


I got mine done at a local place in brum that had some good reviews called dynamic performance it may also be the place I get it remapped but not sure at the moment, to be honest even with the rear screen tinted you can still see out of it easily in the dark

Mate that looks mint! i think all the best people have silver focus's ;) i want a remap but i have spent waaaaaayy too much at the mo!!!!!!!


Cheers, silver is definitely the dogs danglies :D

Nah- silver forever.
Looks faster, stays cleaner longer and shows the lines of the car better.


My car isnt clean at the moment, looks a dirty brown colour, its horrifying actually lol

Mist jets hae been added, also ha to get some new lights as my o/s dipped went kaput on friday night, so decided on some Ring Xenons from my local motorfactor must admit they make a difference. Looking at ordering some number plate lights, mudguards and rubber mats next when I get some money

I got these for mine 2 weeks ago I had leds on there but the led bulbs were all the way round as on these you can see 4 leds each focused straight down

Drove down the shops one wet rainy saturday,
Came home, parked the car and found it stuck to the flap just as it is in the image lol
Thought it would be good for advertising Aero mud flaps lol super light weight.
