Spoke to my usual parts man today he managed to get the spoiler down to £214 inc, from the RRP of £275 :D

 

Only £100 + VAT to spray too, so am getting the spoiler supplied and sprayed by my local Ford dealer for around £330!

 

Not as much of a bargain as you Pree, but not bad from Ford imo. I'll then follow your instructions and have a go at fitting it myself :)

 

Will post up a thread when it comes to it (got a couple of weeks wait due to it being a slow stocking order to get the price down) save de-railing your thread with my stuff.

What put me off the ebay route was the fact that there are two different part numbers for the spoiler depending on the build date for your car.

 

I'm pretty pleased with the price quoted, considerably cheaper than Foci_st3 said he paid in his thread.

 

Anyway, back to your thread, any more plans? Seeing your carbon wrapping, only a little thing but have you done your key fob? I got the DMB overlays in carbon and they look really good, no more scratches :D

The only time is ee my keyfob is when i put it in my pocket :) , but i have not looked at the DMB for them.

 

Next time in Ford i have to get the rear Badge replaced as the silver around the edge has gone bad , once replaced i might get some gel over lays.

 

I have also seriously been looking at the Android replacement head units , with the 8" screens , the only thing stopping me is losing the DAB if i do , i'm not bothered about the voice control as i never use it.

They are After market , they look similar to the MFT units.

Of course the sound quality is not going to be as good as the Sony , but i like the Android part :)

There is no way of using that facia with the stock HU (actual bit that does the work behind facia) then?

It would be a nice idea for the screen if the connections were the same , but you would lose the Adnroid and Dvd side of it.

been shopping on Aliexpress , brought some bits , boot bumper protector , door handle inlays , cup holder trim ,top door speak covers and some blue line trim to play around with.

Takes a while for the stuff to arrive from China but i think will be worth the wait.

 

Also have a set of Heko wind deflectors on the way :)
