Whos in the process of doing their car up? I want to hear about anything youve done from the smallest decal to full engine/body mods :). List the model/year or mk of your car and what youve done and what youre planning to do. Also try and make/post a guide on how you have done your modifications to try and help others. If you need help creating a guide, feel free to contact either myself or any of the other moderators who are always glad to help out.

Ive got a fiesta mk 6 (03) and so far ive fitted; I plan to fit front fog lights, EiBach coilovers/bilstein dampers, A new set of alloys, HID conversion, and possible exhaust at the moment :).

Have something to contribute?

Nothing too exciting for me, I have an Alpine Bluetooth radio inplace of the standard, I am currently in the process of upgrading all the bulbs to LED where possible. Other than that, I am probably looking to improve the detail and small engine performance mod's (uprated Air filters and the likes).

Otherwise, looking to tint the rear windows and install cruise control.

I was saw you could get LED brake lights. My brake lights are double filament obviously tail/brake combined, would they still work and do you need to alter the wiring or is that only when you fit LED indicators?

Where are you getting your custom heater controls from? I take it by custom you're meaning different colour illumination?
