In the dash pod you could fit a scangauge.
I believe someone on here did it last year and it looked pretty good.

Not sure about the RS spoiler if I'm honest.. bit too much if you ask me.

 

Will go well with the rest of the black. Just got some black xenons myself which look much better than the silver ones.

 

(Although my spare silver alloys will go back on in the winter with the silver xenons to match lol)

Clive, you're spot on there...think this is the one you're referring to...

Dal, that was always my worry too about the RS spoiler! Couldn't get an ST one though, and even if I did I'd have needed to budget for paint as well as I'd never get one in my blue. This RS one came up locally though, a guy who thought it was too much for his taste as it was fitted to the car when he bought it. So he just wanted a standard one in return plus a few quid and given that it was already in black and wouldn't need sprayed I couldn't pass it up.

 

Everyone local has told me to go ahead and fit it, as the RS, ST and even ST kitted cars are very rare round these parts, so the chances of parking up beside a real deal and looking cheap rip-off are slim to none! I plan on fitting it for a while and see how I like it. Can always come off again and be sold to fund an ST one, but my initial thoughts are that it could be a keeper...time will tell!

 

Will stick it on this evenin weather permitting.

Seeing as RS spoilers can go for silly prices, you're best off hanging on to it.

Cheers for that Sal, much appreciated...looks great!

 

I called in to a local exhaust centre on the way home, they wouldn't really be a specialist custom place or anythin, more standard repairs, but can still do a bit of basic pipe routing. They put it up on a lift and seemed a bit stumped on how they would route the piping round/under the wheel well, so clearly haven't done or seen one before!

 

But did say it would be no bother to route one working pipe and a dummy tailpipe to match on the other side. Said it'd only cost about £80 for that. They had three stainless tailpipe options, not sure of the exact size of them, but I'd only be interested in either a rolled in or slash cut tip, and both fitted the bumper cut-outs lovely! Said if I sourced my own tailpipes it'd only be about £50, so will be having a snoop round before deciding.

 

Told myself I don't intend spending a fortune on a performance upgrade exhaust, so seriously think this is the route I'm gonna take.

+1 that was James132 who now drives a Mk6.5 ZetecS TDCi
However he did fit the ST pod to a blue 3 door Mk2 Titanium which had the dash pocket already fitted,
Also it was the same colour of dash interior as you Gary,

Here is the thread,

Or

Absolutely awesome job mate :) Well impressed with that car and definitely looks the part now as well :D

Dunno if you're into this , but if this was my car the perfect finish to this would be to get a set of Coils in and lower that bad boy down :D 

Also improves handling as well , never mind looking like a little devil :P

Lenny, that is some offer! I'll def put that on my list then, but will keep the other bits as a priority for the mean time. If/when i get round to it though, you'll be getting a call! ;)

 

Sal, I'll drop you a PM about the pipes.

 

Charlie, thanks very much bud, glad I've finally got to this point!

 

Phil, cheers for the compliments pal. The car's already lowered about 40mm I reckon, so think it'll just be staying that way. Ride's pretty hard as is, and clearance can be an issue on some of the roads and tracks I be on, and even some speed bumps, so won't be goin any lower. They do look nice on coils though I'll agree with you there!

So I did a bit of de-badging this evenin... few pics below of the Titanium, transforming into a Titan, then of course a Tit (snigger!), then an S        T, and eventually a smooth de-badged rear end. Had only really planned on taking off the Titanium badge, but before I knew it I had the Focus off too! Ah well, can always be replaced if the notion takes me.

The new 'S       T' badge...can't see it taking off in the popularity stakes!

Also got a night time shot of my xenons, LED sides and CREE fogs, but hard to get a decent pic to show them properly.

Oh, and I fitted my spoiler tonight too! :D  Was wet all evening, and I had nobody around to give me a hand, but I couldn't resist while I had a bit of spare time. Was dark by the time I was done, so hopefully some daylight shots to follow in the morning.

 

Might fit my wing badges tomorrow too, thinkin of waiting til my inlay set arrives from DMB.

Hope you remembered the silicone around the bolt holes bud.

Yes and no... I remembered that they were needed alright, but as this was only really a 'trial' fit to see if I'm gonna keep it, I didn't bother applying the silicone. On opening the boot this morning though after a wet night I can see exactly why they're needed! I also didn't bother snipping the plug, but rather just snipped the wires from the new brake-light and put them into the old plug and taped it up.

Quite like the spoiler so I think it'll be staying on, so will add the silicone asap. Few pics taken this morning below showing spoiler and de-badged rear...
