A few questions from a new TDCi Focus Owner :)

2 posts in this topic

Hi all, new to the Forum here. Have just got a 1.6 TDCi 2006 Focus and love it to bits so far though there are a few things that I am interested in doing.

First of all, I'm interested in changing the headlights to the darker ones that are available. I've had a quote for £120 from my local Ford dealership (Vospers). Just wondering if anyone knows of somewhere to get them cheaper (apart from eBay as I have already looked) or if anyone has some available?

Secondly, I am thinking of lowering the car. I kinda stole the managers accessory book from the dealership without noticing and it states inside that Ford recommend the Eibach 30mm kit costing £135.00 (installation doesn't matter as my dad is a mechanic). Does anyone have any experience with this kit or would it just be more sensible to buy a cheapo £60 lowering set on eBay?

Many thanks for your time.

James.

I put black ST170 lights on my saloon, and they were over £150 iirc.

Cheap crap off ebay is generally just that. Was that ebay price just for springs? I'd recommend doing the whole suspension with the eibach kit. I'm assuming you've got, or plan to have 17" wheels in which case you'll get a slightly bumpier ride anyway. If you change to cheap lowering springs then I guarantee you're going to knock your teeth out when you run over so much as a twig. The eibach kit will help keep the dentistry bills down.
