Looking forward to seeing some progress ... White focus's can turn out to look like one of the best. Personal opinion !! :-)

Yes Id like to see some pictures mate,

Have you got front&rear camber adjustment fitted?

Also if you're fitting rims over 17" you're going to need the ST steering limiter kit from ford costs less than 20 pounds and stops the inside of the wheel rubbing the arch on full steering lock.

I've had it fitted to mine. Rolling 18x8 ST's lowered on 40mm eibahs

Getting low profile tyres so the overall circumference will be the same so I don't need the stoppers ;).

Yep fully adjustable.

And here you go ;)

Its the width of the tyre that's the problem mate, your 16" are 16x6.5 where 18's are 18x8 being 8" wide compared to 6.5" wide

See how it goes anyway.

Nice one !

Looks brilliant !!

Hope you don't mind but I am going to forward a picture of the centre console to another member so he can now see what it would look like!

On the steering wheel , can you take them parts off? Or Are they covers you have purchased separately ?

They littery clip off. The side ones just pull off then wiggle them free from under front of the wheel. Then just reach round the back of the bottom find where it joins and just pull towards your self and it will unclip. Very very simple.
