Welcome to the family!

 

For mod advice, I suggest that you read through the modifications discussion section, and maybe post yourself a thread there.

 

Alternatively, have a nosey around the Fiesta section of the site, plenty comes up on there!

 

To start, LED lights, footwell and ignition barrel lights, de-tango bulbs, then small things like scuff plates / patterns, and DMB Gel overlays. There is a lot you can do for costmetics, but for performance on a budget, you will be hard pushed. The best you can get on a budget is a decent service for the greatest gains.

It is important to specify which engine you have before discussing performance upgrades,  eg -is it the TI-VCT?

Yes it is the ti- Vct engine 1.6 120hp seen the mountune pack is it really worth nearly 2 grand for the gains though ?

for a VCT its difficult as the VCT can often swallow the gains and can compensate, meaning that your 2k will go a little less!
