My Focus Zetec Mk2.5 Project

86 posts in this topic

Looks good. Liking the changes you've made so far. Amazing the difference a set of wheels make:)

Think you've done exactly what im going for in terms of exhaust. Out of interest did you need to modify the standard bumper for the tailpipe to fit correctly? I'm looking at a Jetex system but not keen on changing bumper's, yours looks great so you've given me hope it might work:P

cheers fella and as for the exhaust where I had it done they had to cut the bumper a bit for it to stick out like the mk1 focus as the mk2.5 oem exhaust sits unde the bumper

Yeah that's my problem. I think most of the aftermarket exhausts are designed to fir the zetec s bumper so i may need to modify and was worried how it would turn out. Taking a bit of inspiration from yours though:)

Better off taking it to a power flow or long life dealer and getting one custom made/fitted. Prob cost less than an off the shelf jobby too. That way they will make it fit exactly under your bumper without the need for cutting it etc. From my research most of the off the shelf ones for say a 1.6 focus are made to fit under the standard bumper not the zetec s bumper.

I think the carbon look goes well with the avlon blue myself.

next on the list might be to have the mirror caps carbon dipped so watch this space

I also fly eyed the indicators in the mirrors

having the battery cover and front deflector cover dipped but having them done different also got a bit of engine bling so watch this space for pics when I have the covers back

crystal black after

so glad that I found the crystal black repeaters as they blend in better with my dipped mirror covers then the fly eyed ones did.

Nice set of mods there. Really like the carbon dipped side mirrors. Brings the black wheels on the car together with the rest.

Suggestion: Maybe get the centre console around the radio done as well. Reckon it would look ace rather than the wrap :)

thanks for the nice reply hassen think I will leave the console with the wrap on as it is my daily driver so cant realy take the console apart.
