Lowering On Eibach Pro Kit?

02 December 2012 - 07:38 PM

Hi all, looking for some advice about the eibach pro kit lowering springs.

40mm front and 30mm rear I believe.

I use the car to transport people and musical equipment from time to time, so it gets pretty loaded.
Anybody got these springs and load their estate/ know more about them to give an opinion?

I really like the look of them when they're on, especially with the 18" ST wheels I have lined up. But I need to know if I'm still ok to load my boot up too.

Mk3 Estate Valance Questions

29 October 2012 - 11:08 PM

Hi all, I'm looking at sprucing up the front and rear ends of my car a bit.
Did spend some time looking for titanium X bumpers but they don't come cheap, and I'm not sure my insurance company would take too kindly to it.

Do I have an options in terms of changing the valances to something different? I have a TDCi 130 Zetec if it helps.

Alternatively, has anybody body coloured their valances? seems photos are few and far between.

I think it might look good, but I'm interested to see if anybody has done it already.

I believe my car is Moondust silver, a 54 plate. Will this make it a pain to colour match?

Fan/ Mist Washer Jets?

16 October 2012 - 10:22 PM

I know this has been discussed many times but the information is pretty fragmented and I'm yet to find a definitive answer.

I've heard about people using the MK3 Focus washer jets on their MK3 mondeos for the fan spray pattern.

I know about needing to extend part of the wiring to make it fit, but I've heard some reports saying they hit the screen too low and are pretty useless unless you're at a standstill.

Can anybody shed any more light on this please?

Double Din Stereo In Mk3?

03 October 2012 - 01:54 PM

I'm looking at swapping out the 6000CD unit with something that can handle an iPod/ iPhone a bit better, it's been on my to-do list for nearly 2 years now.

I know it's been done, but info seems to be a bit hard to really get hold of.

I'd like to stick on of these in:

Is fitting the fascia adapter plate really as simple as removing the old radio unit with the keys and putting in the new plate? I did a radio change on my Mk6 Fiesta and that was pretty awkward, pulling out the whole centre console and whatnot.

I also want to keep the steering wheel stalk controls in use, how do I know what's compatible and what isn't?
