Yeah well badges , stickers, wind deflectors have cost me nothing on insurance, but I can't get the mountune until they release the insurance code for it as my insurance seems to think its an illegal modification haha so ill just have to sit tight

Have something to contribute?

oh yeh forgot I would have to tell them about the wind deflector and gel overlay badges too!! Good job I found saynoto0870.com as my insurer has a premium number!!  :angry: so always find a freephone one on that site, then I just leave the phone on loundspeaker while on hold and watch the tv!!  :P

As long as you have told them if they get it wrong won't that be their problem?

 Yeh that thought crossed my mind but if they cant find it I guess that means they wont insure it. I don't wanna have a accident and have a £22k car that's not insured because of some cheap fly eyes film on the lights..... :mellow:

Yeh understand that after all they are thieving so and so's.

 

Have to say though my son 's previous car a Saxo VTS had so many mods you couldn't count them, none of which were declared, when he was hit by someone they wrote it off without any questions. He even took his exhaust and some other bits off it before it was crushed and they never queried it.

not to hijack the thread but I notice you have a K&N Air Filter, I was just wondering which one you have? 57i? link? I just ask because on my fiesta zs I had and j1 automotic induction kit and it sounded great but was quite pricey which is why I sold it to get some money back. However J1 dont make an induction kit for the new fiesta ST as the hose which goes to the airbox is in a different position so Im hoping I can just take the stock box out and but a K&N cone on the end of the hose. How do you secure it down to stop it bouncing around?

I only got the actual filter straight replacement for the stock one didn't go down the cone route. Got mine from Mountune along with their silicon hose, just in case I ever have enough money to get a full Mountune upgrade will save me a few quid.

Hi guys,

Looking for some advice from whoever can give me some lol.
I recently noticed you cant make modifications to your car under finance.. Now this is my first new car on finance its the 2013 zetec ecoboost and I've already changed chrome grill + foglight surrounds etc to the honeycomb grills (zetec s) all genuine ford parts might i add!! And I've recently had a vinyl roof rap too.

My question is if i took the car in for its 1st year service would they have a go at me? Or would i lose the car?
Awful worried after reading the small print :/

Any help?

Cheers
Marc

its just if you want to give it back at the end of your finance agreement and walk away that they are really tight, if you are taking another car just put back as much as you can and make sure it looks good and they are fine with it. any mods you cant/choose not to put back will at worst just change how much they value the car at during trade in.

hope that helps...I used to panic about this too!!  :)

Welshy you've made it a lot easier mate cheers! I was worried about having the car taken off me and having to pay the full whack :/

Its a pretty good car for what you get, but my eyes are on the new Focus ST or the new Focus RS and i may be considering it after my 3 years ;).

 

it helps a lot mate thanks!

What about changing alloys? Or adding sideskirts and new spoiler? How does it affect it there? :/
