So I have been quite busy and the car was neglected for a while, it seems that my tracking was off from when I lowered it and I ended up with slightly worn tyres


IMG_2877_zpsbb941124.jpg


They weren't too far away from slicks


IMG_2878_zps0d2b7822.jpg


I got a set of continental sport contact 5s ordered and fitted and they are brilliant, best tyre I have had on any car I have owned


IMG_2884_zps13e78cfd.jpg


I also purchased a set of eibach 15mm spacers


few shots before

I think they might need spaced a bit more to be perfect, but they are a lot better than before.


I then got a day off for paddys day and did a quick detail.


Detaring agent at work, shows how much crap got stuck onto the paint work over the winter

I also removed the rear fiesta badge and this shot gives a good view of the spaced street packs


IMG_2905_zps520534b7.jpg


Quite a small mod, but I got my key insert carbon dipped to match the interior.


Before

Lastly I swapped out the top brake light.

I think it suits the car a lot more.


Thats how the car sits for now

the brake light is definitely an improvement and i agree - that final rear view manages to fully show the effect of those spacers!

Nothing to do with the spacers themselves or your photography skills in the other pics, its just that how cameras can make things look 2D most times :)

Coming along nicely B)

I feel your pain with the tyres bud I managed to eat a brand new set in just over two months.

Where did you go to get the tracking done? As two local garages I've been have said it's too low for their equipment so I was planning on trying rsr next

Two months! christ my old ones lasted 4k miles from new with the previous owner and 7k since I got it and lowered it. Wouldn't like to be forking out for new continentals every two months!!

I haven't got it done yet, I'm changing a few things that may effect it again so waiting until i'm finished messing about until I get it done, possibly the end of the month.

Not sure where to take it yet, I know the place where I got my tyres, mcgeown in mallusk do a computer 4 wheel alignment for £30. Someone told me to go to a place in banbridge, but they are £80 to get it done. Can't see where the £50 price difference comes in tbh

Yeah >_> luckily I get brand new tyres at cost price.

I think the price depends on the machinery they use but tbh at the moment I'll happily pay £80 to get mine done haha.

Flip I should have talked to you earlier, could have hooked a ford owner up! haha

I went and checked back, don't know where i got banbridge from. I was recommended jb autos in tobermore or russle shields in castledawson.

Probably wouldnt be far off £100 for me once I factor in fuel etc.

edit I see your from London so this information is probably useless to you, I thought you were local to me.

Hi mate they are built in, there are 18 leds in each I think, here is a link to the one I bought. He mustn't have any stock and upped the price to stop the listing being lost. because I definitely didn't pay that price for them
I just checked and I paid £20 delivered and got £3 back so he could use photos of my car in his listing

if anyone is still after these you can get them here for £11-£12

No worries, if i went anywhere it would probably be independent as there aren't that many chains over here
