So I have been looking at getting a muffler tip for my focus, but am not quite sure which one to go for here are a couple I have been looking at.

1
2

Though with these ones I am not sure how it will sick out, whether it will stick out straight or point towards the floor. They have a slight angle but I'm not sure if it's enough.

I saw someone had posted this one somewhere on this forum, it has more of an angle so it may sit straighter, but it costs a silly amount. Any ideas guys?

P.s I wish my front lights were bluer now :(

Looking good mate, I'm a huge fan of discreet mods. I'm also after an exhaust tip, and looking at it I'm going to need an angled one also for my Zetec S, just not sure which will fit niceley.

Not too keen on link number two, but the other two aren't bad. Is £19 a 'silly amount' for that last one?

It's the postage that is the silly amount.

Do you think the ones you think look good will sit nicely, or just face the floor?

Ah right enough! Sorry, I didn't notice that, new ebay layout and all!

Hard to tell really how they'll look until you see them fitted. Came across this though which may be of interest to you...it's a genuine Focus MS Design tail pipe. Would probably come up nice with a bit of polish and elbow grease!

Yeah, nice find thanks. Something like that would look nice on my car I think, though there would be a few things I would need to ask a mechanic I suppose, as I know nothing about these things. First is, will it fit my car as my car hasn't got a cut out for a tailpipe. How much it would cost to weld it on and will it alter the sound of the exhaust.

Get a full backbox rather than the tip. A custom exhaust place can recommend one to give you a certain sound too

No, no, I seem to have been misunderstood. I am only looking to slightly enhance my exhaust, and I thought an easy and inexpensive way to do that was by buying just a bolt-on tip. I am not looking to replace any part of the exhaust. Neither do I want to change the sound of my exhaust. I like how my car sounds currently, it is nice and quiet in the cabin, so I can hear my music clearly :)

As diesel exhausts on Ford's seen to always turn down at the end the best ones to get are ones that are angled.
Adding a straight tip runs the risk of it being too long and hitting the ground/speed bumps etc.
Try something like this-

Not sure about fitting in terms of pipe diameters and that, would be worth asking about, but if that is indeed a genuine Ford MS Design tip, then it should just sit below the bumper anyway, so you wouldn't need a cut-out or anything.

Anyone know what bulb type I need to replace the one in my boot?

Getting this one for my courtesy light. Do you all think this will be decent?

The bulb you need is a w5w, also known as a T10 or wedge.
Try this one-

It fits into the lens on the light fixture and replaces the standard bulb.

Right, would this work also? Or do you think the one you linked would look better/ would be brighter?

While I'm asking about bulbs, do you know if the courtesy light bulb I link is the right one? and what bulb do I need to replace the number plate light?
