Thought it was about time I did a project thread, I have been on here and done a fair bit of lurking. 
 
I'll start with my previous car history...
 
car 1, vauxhall corsa c 1 litre, I had it for less than 9 months before I got rid.
 
car 2, Renault Megane 1.4 dynamic, bought standard and by the end looked like this

IMG_1285_zpse41bb739.jpg
 
I then purchased a seat leon 2lt FR and didn't do anything bar drive it and clean it
 
IMG_1888_zps8ef7ed68.jpg
 
IMG_1407_zpsef701f20.jpg
 
Finally I saw sense and moved onto a 2011 ford fiesta s1600 with 4100ish miles on the clock in August. A few pics from the day I bought it

also spotted this when I was over in Plymouth :wub:
 
IMG_2462_zps071a3fec.jpg
 
I then purchased a mountune short shifter and had the bright idea of starting to strip down the car in the evening meaning it got too dark for me to finish :doh:
 
this is how I ended up driving around until I had the time to finish it off
 
IMG_2490_zpsc7a8a469.jpg
 
eventually stripped down
 
IMG_2495_zps32f16f72.jpg
 
and comparison between new and old
 
IMG_2493_zpsf123af8d.jpg
 
IMG_2494_zps23e5d686.jpg
 
and fitted

and the reason for having the interior stripped was to get it carb dipped including the air vent surrounds on the sony unit.
 
the result
 
IMG_2526_zpsb327b0ff.jpg
 
IMG_2527_zps7a91ca20.jpg
 
IMG_2528_zps502f5fa7.jpg
 
I also installed cruise control and got it carbon dipped at the same time
 
IMG_2529_zpsde35613b.jpg
 
incredibly rubbish night shot
 
IMG_2523_zpscb1b15e0.jpg
 
photos do not do it justice at all, easily one of my favourite mods
 
The sony unit is DAB compatible but I have yet to hear of anyone successfully retrofitting it, which is a shame. It might be an area I look into in the future
 
IMG_2499_zps8a16d2b8.jpg
 
my mate got the ST inserts from his focus done at the same time

I had a xenon kit lying that I had installed in the Leon, and due to laziness and being very busy I didn't get around to fitting it until recently. 
 
First off I ordered these off ebay for the bargain price of 99p. not the best quality if i'm honest but they do the job
 
IMG_2551_zps15cd520d.jpg
 
next I set about fitting the kit
 
IMG_2574_zpsb23730b4.jpg
 
IMG_2569_zpscdb9b047.jpg
 
IMG_2570_zps5189b947.jpg
 
standard
 
IMG_2573_zps19efb4e6.jpg
 
Xenon
 
IMG_2572_zps243b2a3b.jpg
 
and both done
 
IMG_2576_zps149a902b.jpg
 
apologies for the filth of the car
