I have just become the owner of a 2006 Ford Focus LX Mk2 1.8 TDCI, and I am thrilled :D I am not looking to spend too much money on this car, £1500 max, but hopefully not even that much. If anyone has any suggestions of mods they think could look nice, or any tips for the future mods I wish to do, please let me know in this thread.

Current list of things I wish to do:

- New bulbs (sidelights, dipped and full beam)
- Smaller aerial
- Alloy wheels
- Tinted windows (rear and back sides)
- Maybe Mk2.5 spoiler and rear bumper
Only cosmetic really, no performance upgrades.

So I have attached some photos of my Focus as stock, just incase you guys don't know what a Focus looks like :P

Isn't she a beauty?!

My new bulbs came today! Here's some photos I took of them:

Thanks to some helpful advise from a few on the members on here who helped me pick these bulbs. Let's hope they are nice, bright and BLUEish.

I will be fitting them tomorrow and will take before and after photos, so look out for them :)

Good effort there mate.
Use me and Brigante as inspirations if you want.
Plenty to do from our signature pictures if you find anything that takes your fancy.

Thanks man, the inspiration for the bulbs has already come from you and the idea of maybe getting new spoiler and rear bumper from Charlie :)

Like my newly created sig? :P

So I fitted the new Osram Cool Blue Intense bulbs the other day and this is the before and after shots.

Osram Cool Blue Intense - Before and After.jpg

I think they look pretty nice. They give a lot better colour than the stock bulbs, however I am not sure whether the main beams throw out as much light as the stock. Could be that they are more precise? I am talking more about the spread of the light.

Looking back now, I should have probably taken a photo from the drivers seat of the before an after.

I have some more photos which I may upload later.

Nice car mate! I used to have a 2006 MK2 1.8TDCI. Brilliant car, and 45-50mpg! Unfortunately, had too many miles on the clock and needed alot of work!

I did a few mods, body coloured the plastics, st replica alloys, mk2.5 rear lights. rear tints, mk2.5 zetec seats (trust me will transform the interior), mk2.5 stereo. Could post up some pics if you want.

I miss my focus! anyone wanna swap a mk7 fiesta for a mk2.5 focus? aha.

Thanks :D Yeah it does get pretty good MPG. That's a shame about yours :/ How many miles did it have when you bought it?
Yeah that would be awesome if you could upload some photos, I'd be very interested in seeing them :)
