Does the car ride/handle any different with the spacers?

It doesn't ride any different no if anything it helps with the little speed bumps but the only good difference if noticed is coming off a roundabout it doesn't roll at all and you can hit the gas harder coming off roundabouts and going round long looping corners on a motorway it doesn't roll at all and doesn't feel like your sat at an angle its solid straight

Just a quick update for everyone i have loads to do to the car but even with my two days off this week i wont beable to get anything done, i have had a god awful weekend and week since thursday, after coming done with what i thought was an allergy to something id eaten turns out i was diagnosed with the German measles or rubella as we know it, so im in bed nearly all day taking fluids as much as i can and trying to flush this thing out within 7 days and try and get some work done to the car on friday if im feeling better, but so far ive had no chance to take bits to the painters and got a new rear diffusor when the exhaust which i wont be able to fit now for at least another 2 3 weeks due to busy weeks up and down the country for work :/ looks like everything is on hold until i get better hopfully only another 6 days max of this illness then back to normal as it only lasts a max of 10days well should lol. But yh hope everyone's alright and I'll get back to the car when i can :) also got a nurse which comes round everyday to take blood to check my white blood cell levels and she is mega hot!!! ;) hey not all bad :D haha

Got the last blood test results today and I'll all good :) only toke 8 days but back to fighting fit today,

Right first thing went to the painters and dropped some goodies off and got a deal of 6 things painted in gloss black for £100 not bad :)

Also sorted my front splitter out as the sides had dropped a little so a couple more screws in and all sorted, then tried the tints again but gave up after it went wrong again lol, but who needs tinted windows lol sighs -.- then decided to try my new rear diffusor out for size, fitted it and well it looked horrible on the car so came off and now back on the old flebay,

Here's the diffusor

Didnt get a pic on the car but it wasnt pretty IMHO

Then sized how much work is needed for the exhaust change over and decided im not going to do it myself as a local garage will only change 60 for it to be fitted so for that im not going to bother myself also booked the car in for the stainless brake lines to be fitted too, then got some new foc stickers on the car too :) thanks to steve

After all this smog the car needs a good wash now but still abit cold and will get someone else to do it for me lol

Then as my sister has now turned 17 she has got herself a nice little car, little pug 107 so thought id get her rolling with the mods and done this for her

Cheers m8 :) its got even better today, first thing went to the hired ramp and 5 hours later we have some updates, wipped the alloys off and done the braided brake lines first and bleed the brakes using the garages bleed kit soo easy to do, just keep topping the fluid up and sucking it out, also at the same time complety changed all the brake fluid to new and while she was in the air drained the oil and gave her a new oil filter and new oil :) i didnt take any pictures due to all the mess lol

Ive decided to get some different spacers as mine aint working for me, going for a set with longer studs and will get a garage to do it for me, will be selling my eibach pro spacers on eBay soon when i get them off as i forgot to today lol, im after £90-100 of anyone is interested 15mm not used for long 4 weeks max

Anyway next thing to tackle, was the exhaust and cut the old one off before checking the new one fitted woops lol, but it all fitted fine and sealed nicely :) also while my wheels where off i ran over to the garage next door and got my tyre repaired due to a sneaky screw sat in it lol

With the exhaust fitted its soo nice the revs pick up quicker and more sport tone to it, here's a little vid :).

As soon as i get it on YouTube ill link it,

So things to do, front and rear wheel spacer change, new locking nuts and covers, need t get the diffusor and wing mirrors painted, also tinted a spare indicator lense so will see what its like before doing the other side here's the pics

All very nice bro.

I remember when i had my new custom exhaust built and fitted to my Zetec S it picked up speed much better. Not to mention a decent exhaust note too!

Ive taken inspiration from your build and bought some DMB Gel badges for my car ( http://www.dmb.uk.com/prod/372/ford-badges-gel-overlays-fiesta7 ). Cant wait to stick them on.

Its dawned on me that there isnt much i could do to make the paint work more creative due to my car being black. so ive decided to go for a black and red paint scheme and am going to work with that.

I eagerly waiting to hear your new exhaust note. should be sweet.

How come you went for the spacers with longer studs instead of your old ones?
