Looking at a Supercopa with the 2 litre TDI engine with DSG; just seems sweet to me :P easily mapped to 210bhp which should give it some poke.

Not sure how to put a picture on the post


This is what my sidelights look like, and the fog lights too. Dan I've got a set of the facelift tail lights to put on mine but struggling to get the wiring for them, where did you get yours? Does the Lockwood kit come in black with the blue tint as well as the white? Tried replacing the bulbs for blue LED's once before and it kinda worked for a while but there wasn't enough power going to all the lights and we ended up frying the circuit board :(. Ive not really done that much to my car, done:

The headlights and fog light bulbs
New Kenwood made for iPod head unit
Replaced the rubber gear gaiter for a leather one
Replaced the green interior switches for blue ones ( If anyone has any idea how to do the heater controls would be helpful, can't get past some thick white plastic before the numbers on the inside)
Put the leather interior from a Ghia X into it.
Colour coded 1 wing mirror (ran out of paint and never got round to doing the other one, plus going to do the door handles, boot handle and body mouldings when the better weather comes.)
Put a set of mud flaps on it
Batman DMB gel overlays and Batman valve caps.
And got a set of Fox FX1's on it that were matt black and red around the lip when I got them but I've sprayed them gloss black and the same shade of blue as the car (going to repaint them again when the better weather is here though)

Pretty boring to have had it 4years now lol.

I got the facelift brake lights/wiring from that site. I had to put in a specific parts request on the site for the "bulbs holders" (this is the wiring) for the fiesta mk 6 facelift brakelights. The wiring between the prefacelift and facelift lights are different though because on the facelift lights you get an extra reverse/foglight (one each side) also the plug to the new lights is different also. You can buy plugs seperate plugs though and its quite easy to run the 2 wires for the extra reverse/foglight each side. If you arent sure, buy the bulb holders/lights and get an auto electrician to fit them for you. They should be able to get the plug for you and run the extra wires and it shouldnt cost any more than about 40-50. I posted a short guide how to do it in the fiesta guides section.

With the dial kit I think you can only get white or silver faces but you can get a few different colours of dial illumination. Ive changes my interior switches aswell and havent yet found out how to change the heater controls. I think the heater controls might be similar to the speedo which uses illuminescent ink with juat a normal bulb behind it. Im gona buy a cheap one off ebay and strip it to see if it is possible though so ill keep you posted.

Ive taken the heater controls a part before and when you separate then the back of the numbers before you get to the ink has a thick molded white plastic surrounding it. We couldn't think of any way to get it off as its too difficult to sand it down and it doesn't come off :(

Ive took mine out before and got to a bit that looked like it could seperate to give access to the bulbs can't remember too much about it at the moment. The only reason I had it out is because I was painting the housing around it. Like I said im gona buy a cheap second hand one and see if its possible. Atleast that way if I break it ill not be left without a heater lol
