hi everyone,

 

Im am just writing to see if anyone has any ideas of any cheap modifications I could make to my Ford Fiesta Mk7 Style to help enhance its looks without costing me too much to do so??

 

I look forward to seeing your suggestions.

 

cheers,

Little things like changing the head light bulbs, changing the colour of the badges.. maybe spraying the alloys and bits if you're good at that kind of stuff?
How much are you looking to spend?

Hi BeccaaCat,

 

I already have changed the colour of the badges, added footwell lights, added wind deflectors and was going to change the head light bulbs and interior overhead bulbs as well but didnt know which bulbs i would need? And as little as possible to be honest at the moment haha. :P

Headlight's -H1 main beam, H7 dipped beam, H11 fog lights. 

501/T10/W5W (all the same bulb just different names) for sidelights, number plate lights, interior lights.

What gear knob are you going for? The one that lights up? And i think I am going to change my foot pedals to metal ones as well

It is... But the refitting not so.

 

You need to be mad careful not to mess up the switch, if honest I'd recommend removing the entire unit. Then check fuses if the light won't work after, they blow fuses for fun.

I'm currently in the process of tidying up the interior by dyeing or recovering the headling, spraying or covering the trims on the pillars.

 

I've found all the little things slowy add up and make a huge difference

Think I am for doing this as well through time, it would be good if you could upload some photos of the car when it is finished so we can have a look. :)

Thanks for the reply, I want to changed my interior courtesy lights from normal bulbs to LED'S but cant seem to find ones to fit my ford fiesta mk7 Style. When I search on ebay it keeps saying everyone is not compatible with my model of fiesta? Any ideas?

 

Also Im for window tints in September just before my new insurance quote is due, and DMB graphics could be a good idea thanks. :D

ignore the compatibility, if its the right bulb (festoon I think?) and the right size, then it should fit. I bought my 42mm blue LED interior lights from ebay for £3, it insisted my car wasn't compatible... and it is :D

Festoon bulbs come in 38mm and 42mm but either will fit with judicious bending of the contacts.
