Ford Fiesta Club - Sub Forum's Idea?

10 March 2011 - 10:31 AM

Hellooo again.

Just wondering if maybe there should be a campaign to get sub-forums on the Ford Fiesta Club?

Everything looks a bit untidy in my opinion and maybe there should be sub-forums, Ie- Project threads, Gallery, Problems, Hints & Tips, and so on.

Just wondering if i've got anyone to support it.

Much appreciated!

Got A New Fiesta? List Of A Few Cheap Mod's That Make A Difference

09 March 2011 - 04:04 PM



Helloooo, me again. ;)

Thought I would do something useful for once in my life and generate a list of cheap/dearer mods for new fiesta buyers. Hope this helps. I was struggling to think of idea's of what to do to my Fiesta when I got it, I spent hours trying to find a list of things to do, but couldn't find one. So thought I would make one for the benefit of other people!

Feel free to suggest ideas for this list if I have not yet mentioned it, and I will add it onto my list (With your username mentioned, you take the credit!)

So yeah!

Headlights -
Headlight bulb (SET) kit. (WHITE ICE LED SIDE LIGHTS, H1 BLUE ICE FULL BEAM, H7 BLUE ICE DIPPED BEAM) Can get these off ebay for about £10 if you really are on a budget, or you can get the philips ones for abit more. Really do make a difference and does stand out at night time more than other fiestas.

LEDS/Footwell Lights/Interior Lights
By JASON TIERNEY - Changing the interior lights and footwell lights(even if theres no bulbs the wiring/plug might be there). I went for UV Purple gives the car a really nice glow and its something different. Can get any number of colours.

DMB Gel overlays -
These require personal taste. In my opinion I really like them, coming in a £16 for a set, including the steering wheel badge, they really do completely change the look of the fiesta, Front, Read and Interior. More info go to www.dmb.uk.com

Engine -
Air Filter and Oil Breather, can get cheap ones off ebay for literally £15 combined. More expensive ones it's worth going to K&N online, or Pipercross for maximum effect.

Tailor made floor mats -
These are tailor fit specialists on ebay that make Mk7 Fiesta mats for only £20 delivered, available in Red, Black & Blue. I just went for Black as my Fiesta didnt have any mats at all. But if you go for red or blue, it will change the interior somehow alot.

LED Number plate bulbs -
Can get these off ebay for less than £2 delivered, even £0.99 if you buy from Hong Kong. Really do make a difference to the rear of the car at night time.

Armrest -
I've not personally gone for one of these, but i'm so tempted to for the summer. You can get the full works, Armster Armrest, but it will send you back about £80, ebay has a massive range of universal ones from Bulgaria for £15, my friend got one for his Mk4 Golf and it's actually better quality than the Volkswagon version!

ADDED - (by iNath) - Armrest - mine was £55.55 delivered from Germany, available in black fabric or leather - fits great (custom made for MK7)

Door Sills -

By ANDYEDGE - Please look at picture below, not sure on prices but not too expensive at all. Great suggestion and another cheap mod idea.

ADDED - (by iNath) - Can get some for £40-£45 for the Ford ones.

Wind Deflectors -
Got my set off ebay, £35 delivered from Slovakia, they are good for so many things; They look really smart, The give a completely different feel when your driving, they don't get any wind pass, and it saves fuel! (In theory :S). Worth getting some though. Expensive ones at better quality available from europarts, but the ones i've got a fine for me :)

Debadge -
Like again, matter of taste, they week I got my Mk7, I took all the badges off the back of it, other than the Ford badge itself. Looks so much better in my opinion. PRICE - FREE!

Stickers???? -
Matter of taste again, me personally, I quite like the odd sticker on my car, mine has been lowered and i've got a sticker saying I love Speedbumps. I'm probably going to take all of mine off soon though, due to bullying from friends :( :D

ADDED - (by NAY ZS) - 'S' sticker on the bottom of steering wheel. I got one delivered off ebay for £1. It's about the size of a 10p coin. You can also get different colours, but that's kind of stupid in my opinion!

Badges - (By JASON TIERNEY)

"S" badge on the front of Zetec S's I think is a nice touch, similar to the way RS focus have RS badges on the grill. Okay so Zetec S's are alot lower on the Food chain but still a nice mod IMO

FEW MORE DEARER MODS

Alloys -
A set of aftermarket alloys changes your car so much, I decided to go for Jap/Germal style alloys for my mk7, as I wanted something completely different, Mine were £640 from Oldam Alloys.

Springs -
I've only gone for springs with my Mk7, not the full works. My springs have lowered my car by 30mm, but they do offer a 45mm, I live on a farm lane though so access would be a little restricted if it was actually on its !Removed!! Got my springs from ebay, and are made by 'Lo Suspension', only £88.55 delivered, and fitted would cost you around £50.

HID Kit -
These are illegal but its completely your choice. I've gone for an 8000k HID kit, and they look great at night. £70 off ebay delivered.

Window Tints -
I've not done this yet, but will be doing soon. I got quoted for back windscreen and rear side windows, £130 from a place in Macclesfield, cheshire.

Roof Wraps -
I don't know, can this be done yourself or does it need a specialist do you reckon? I've been quoted £190 from a place in Warrington, Cheshire anyway.

ADDED - (by JASON TIERNEY) - Carbon Fiber Vinyl Wrapping is cheap mod for interior or exterio. can get free sample from Carbonmods.com and its about £12 for a ample amount of vinyl.


Seats/Maybe?
I'm currently saving up for a nice set of Leather Sport Recliners, in white to match my Fez. Can get these off ebay for about £300 with the subframes and brackets built into. I'm deffo doing it but still, matter of personal taste! I'm just going a bit stupid i think.

Backbox/ONLY?
You can get a backbox only fitted for about £100, im not going to though as my car is a 1.25 and i don't want to make it seem something it's not!

ICE/SOUND - (BY JASON TIERNEY)
For a bit of extra Boom Boom You can install a pioneer underseat sub, its one ford fit themselfs, but I bought from online retailer and got ford to fit it in stead as its very expensive from ford. Was about £200 inc fitting.

Frozen White - Mk7 Fiesta 1.25 Style Project Thread

03 March 2011 - 12:22 PM

Hey,

My name is Nick and i'm from Stockport, Manchester, England.

Currently driving a 1.25 MK7 Fiesta (3DR), in Frozen white. Got it completely standard about a year ago now, from Evans Halshaw in Ashton. Wasn't going to do anything to it as i was going to buy a Corsa VXR when im 20 in May. Decided against that idea though, so thought i'd do up the fiesta with little suttle mods to make it look nice.

Got the Car completely standard and in the last 1 month i have done the following;

17" BK RACING 299 ALLOY WHEELS
LOWERED FRONT AND REAR BY 30MM
FITTED 8000K HID XENON KIT
CUSTOM TAILORED TO FIT FLOOR MATS
DMB BADGE GEL OVERLAYS IN BLACK AND RED (INC STEERING WHEEL)
NURBURGRING DECAL
SHOCKER HAND DECAL
I LOVE/HATE SPEEDBUMPS DECAL
RE-WIRED MY AUX INPUT THROUGH MY GEARBOX UP TO DRIVERS SIDE WINDSCREEN
FITTED WHITE ICE LED SIDE LIGHTS
FITTED WHITE ICE H1 FULL BEAMS
AERIAL (!Removed!!)
DUST CAPS RED (!Removed!!)
RED/BLACK FIESTA TAX DISC HOLDER

CURRENTLY ORDERED FROM EBAY;

PUSH BUTTON START INTERGRATED/ILLUMINATED GEAR KNOB.
FIESTA 3DR WIND DEFLECTORS, NOT THE CRAP STICK ON ONES, THE ONES BUILT INTO THE WINDOW CANAL.
K&N AIR FILTER (RED)
STAINLESS STEEL PIPING TO BUILD OWN INTAKE
K&N OIL BREATHER (RED)

THINKING OF BUYING IN THE FUTURE;

WHITE SPORT RECLINING SEATS (UNSURE)
GETTING ROOF WRAPPED IN GLOSS BLACK (DEFFINATLY)
GETTING WINDOWS (JUST REAR & SCREEN) TINTED TO 40% (DEFFINATLY)
DON'T REALLY WANT A FULL SYSTEM ON IT, BUT MIGHT JUST GO FOR A SHY BACK BOX OR SOMETHING..

ANYWAY,

Thanks for looking, pictures to follow.
