Unbelievable the difference a little piece of metal can make isint it?
Truly is the all time best bang for buck modification you can do to a modern diesel engine,

You've got a point there :) suppose I'll find out what it's like when it gets here lol
Speaking of headlight brows I did not so long ago buy a set of vinyl ones of dmb UK I think it was can't remember there exact name they used to do the gel ford badges.. But yeah the vinyl ones are a real pain in the !Removed! to do got one on perfect then had the other mostly on and it ripped, fair to say the headlight nearly flew down to Street and all my neighbours heard me swearing the whole way up the drive hahaha :P

Yeah its DMB graphics

been there mate,
Vicki was there when i tried closing the bonnet on the CSR brows she giggled out of embarrassment when the bonnet wouldn't close,
I got annoyed and screamed "stop effin watching meeeee"
Even though i had invited her out to see them two minutes prior :wacko:
Heat of the moment doesnt matter atall now :lol:
Although she still refers to it :/

Everything is awesome, Everything is awesome when you're part of a team :D
As you can tell, I been watching way too much of the Lego Movie.
On the subject of bodykits, this is the one I mentioned from Tese Designs. When, and if I have spare cash lying around, this would be top of my list.
Also, keep an eye on German ebay for products such as Eibach and Bilstein as they are usually cheaper than most places. 

Looks very tidy indeed mate,

With regards to the meet, I didn't get a chance to call Airside Ford but will do so today and keep all updated.
I also might need a bit of help from you guys. I just bought an egr blanking plate after being fed up with 1st gear turbo lag. Any chance I could get tips or even a help fitting it on the day? I got all the tools and will keep everyone entertained with some tunes :)

Im out on this one mate due to my back condition,
If it wasnt id do it for you on the day

#404001 Irish Meet August 2014

Posted by Lenny on 01 September 2014 - 08:13 AM

I had a look around the website, not really my thing but to each their own. Prices are a bit OTT for what you get. Poor car being backed into the wall. Maybe leave a note for him to say how nice his car looks with that very expensive bodykit :P
Funny about the RS belonging to a driving instructor. With the road tax for that car being near 2k on top of the price of the car, that job must be good money :P

Totally agree regarding the MS-Design kit mate not a big difference in exchange for big money,
Saw the top they have for the ST/Zs spoiler looks to be designed to increase down force on the rear at speed but im afraid to ask "how much? "

The RS is a 2009
Anything after June 2008 will have emissions based tax,

Ive messaged them on facebook and invited them but havent heard any reply. One of them is actually from wicklow lenny, drives a lovely red zetec s fiesta

Not saw it mate,
Im in Gorey Co. Wexford, rarely venture in to wicklow town, mainly arklow,
Saw a lovely white 3 door mk6 1.6TDCi fiesta with ST replica kit on it in arklow,
But never saw a red ZetecS around.

I was actually in Wicklow today. Lovely driving roads, sunny day and with the new sound system in the car, it was a bit of an experience. I think I must have driven for more than 2 hours. Was at Brittas bay beach with the family and never been there. Nice spot.


From what I can remember he said hes from bray and that his dad owns a ford garage there

Fitspatricks Ford garage in little bray as that particular area of bray is known :lol:
Lived up there on the seafront for seven years, worked in the town for nine years,

#403866 Cree Led Headlight Bulbs

Posted by Lenny on 31 August 2014 - 08:05 PM

Hey Lenny would they pass mot?

Not in dipped beam or high beam no, because led cant be focused they spread light everywhere,
But in fogs, or reverse even in parking bulbs they will pass because these lights are position marking lights not required to have a focused point of light.
Best supplier of cree is alltronix.co.uk
Some ebay sellers supply fake cree that dont work.
