Just picked this up, 2010 42k miles. Part ex'd my trusty Freelander. This is my daily hack, with the mk3 Escort as my toy. :D
 
Love the way it drives, quite nippy.....especially mid range and handles like a go kart. :D

Been for a 30 mile blast, what a difference! Smoother acceleration, pulls away better, better mid range, and mpg creeped up a bit. :)

Also ordered one of these today, hopefully be able to play music off my phone and charge it at the same time.

Looks great,
I love those alloys aswell, if you were to lower it on ford approved eibach springs it also improves handling,
Dpf internal removal and a remap will also see it drive like a petrol.
2.5" cat back would also help things if desired,
Looks great as it is though.

Cheers Lenny, don't really want to do too much.....but can never help doing something lol. Won't be lowering it, as it's all speed bumps where I live. Will have to be careful enough with the mk3 Escort. :D

Your guides, do have me thinking. ;)

DRL's clear fog light housing and rear footwell lighting would finish it off tidy.

Decided against the usb music box, and fitted a Pioneer BT head unit. As I like a good sound system, blue tooth pairing is easy and can ring from the stereo with all contacts displayed on head unit. Steering wheel controls work, all functions. And it even comes with a mic. :D

Also found it cheaper to buy the harness and stork controls from Halfords £30 and Fascia from Ebay £10. Well as the kits on Ebay with the same parts are £60.

Have changed the led colours to red now.

And the mic.

I also have a 2010 1.6 tdci. :) Did the K & N Air filter actually boost performance and is it worth getting ?

Looks nice mate, I think so mate......as you get better air flow, and never have to change it. It does increase performance, I fitted mine along with the egr blanking plate. And what a difference it made. :D

What is this EGR blank plate? Do you have to take the EGR valve off ?

There's a guide here http://www.fordowner...-16tdci-engine/

Cheap mod, and easy to fit......I didn't remove the wipers etc, just engine cover, loosened the valve. :)
