I've just bought a full Levin BZR bucket seat interior consisting of:

Door cards

Front drivers seat

Seat rail front drivers

Passenger seat

Seat rail passengers

Rear seat

Rear seat head rests

All in excellent condition no tares for a staggering 100 euro

I have yet to purchase the car but in fear of landing a car with a torn seat

100 euro for a full replacement interior is worth every penny.

Its a strange mix that one lol

Does look good in the ink if I'm honest, and its a map spec focus due to the sharp of the bumper,

But I would have thought even in japan they would have been interested in keeping the focus euro style because sticker bombing is very much a Japanese thing and not in theme with euro styling.

Thanks Barry lol

I've saw somthing very interesting for the Levin,

Since I want the car for commuting to work and I work shift which means the neighbours may not like me starting up the engine at 22:15 or arriving home at 7am

I've found a manufacturer of rear exhaust box's that have an adjustable valve built in,

Much like an oversized EGR valve

And supplied with a loom to run a switch in to the dash allowing for whisper quiet driving as much as I want,

Then when I'm on my own in the country I can push the button opening the exhaust allowing the sound to roar.

Snap! Ive been thinking about one too - i could ditch the 1 remaining silencer on the Mondeo (saving weight- upto 10kgs) just whether to get a 2-1/4, 2-1/2 or 3" one - you can get mechanical (cable operated) ones as well as electrical ones

Think the mechanical one will be better in the long run ;)

I reckon 2.5" would be sufficient mate

I see they can be fitted in the middle of the exhaust for fitments such as the focus where the rear silence sits within the axles and exit pipes carries further.

Great invention

Since there not fitted to a car,

I thought I'd stick "grisaille bear" in there to make it look more aggressive and mad lol

All going well I'll be renting one of these steam clean bad boys the weekend and do the interior following the video:

Thanks foca,

Was a complete bargain at 120euro to be honest I felt bad and paid 150 because it is quality,

I've got dpf removal next week which I regret booking now because I want to get saving for the Levin, but it needs doing anyways so I might aswell get it dine and over with.

Then its solid saving starting next month until February at the latest,

Maybe purchase one in November if the price is right,

I've got a mate from work who has rebuilt a celica GT4 and upgrade ball bearing fensport turbo,

So he has agreed to come with, when viewing to help me get the best value for money.

Will be a great advantage because he has had a Levin before and knows how they should feel, sound and handle.

It did crops my mind lol

And having the second interior would make it an easy mod as the car could still be driven while the interior is in upholstery fitters,

To be honest though I'm happy with the interior and stereo etc.

For the moment,

My main focus will be fighting off any rust and ensuring the battery, leads and distributer are in tip top condition,

Followed by radiator and hoses prior to taking on the luxery mods.
