Looks very nice mate. Where did you get that focus badge from?

Got em on ebay mate. Some guy was doing a deal 3 for £12. Still got two more. I'm debating whether to put them on the side.

Here's one for example: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-Ford-Focus-S-Badge-Ford-UK-Stock-/291099303620?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item43c6dedec4

The covers I got from aliexpress:

I've owned the car since May 2013, it's currently at about 51k miles. No idea if it was ever changed as not noted down in the service history. But I thought better safe than sorry. Whilst changing the belt, my guy noticed the water pump was leaking, so replaced that as well. ;)

Isn't it 100k for timing belt? Or is that diesel?

Yeah i know its recommended every 100k miles, but my guy noticed it was looking a bit worn during my last service and recommended I change it at some point this year. At least I can mark it in the service book as done, another 70-100k miles out of it.

Matches the red theme I have for the outside. Hopefully calipers will get done next month in red ;)

Not much to report for this month, save the few cheap mods. Gave the car a good clean yesterday, one coat of Poorboys Blackhole and two coats of FK1000p. Gleamin :D

Got a new mod for you!

Knock a hole in the wall and park your car in the garden :D

That way you can protect your asset ;)

Haven't had a chance to do any mods in awhile but finally got round to fitting a rear mobius. Writing up a guide for anyone interested, and pics to follow.

Here's a nightime test, on the way back from the gym.
