They just need replacing, they're old and lipped, so it presents an opportunity to upgrade.

OK, it looks like Fiesta ST stuff will go straight on.  The only problem is the disc diameter will increase from 258 to 278 mm which isn't a big improvement but will increase unsprung weight.  So I've decided to go with standard size discs, uprated pads, braided hoses.


What do people recommend these days for uprated pads?


Cheers :)

Thanks for that, will probably go for those then. Longevity is not really a concern as the car only does 6-7K miles a year. It would be more of a concern if they lastest ages because I'd need to swap them out down to age rather than wear!

That's weird. That user is no longer registered and hasn't had any feedback since Jan 2005.

Anyway, really sorry to hear that. I know it can be a really stressful time selling cars, and the market has declined somewhat. Luck is on your side with this one though as I believe it's still in the top 5 most popular cars in Britain.

Can I just point something out which is going to hurt a little I'm afraid - The ad is a little bit like reading your life story and less about the facts of the car. Whilst a buyer may be sympathetic at the time, they ultimately are looking for the right car for the right price. I'd remove some your personal detail, and add some more about the car. If you can afford to get the fog lamp fixed, do so as it's one less thing to put a buyer off the car and less of a bargaining chip for them. I'd also remove the fact that you're open to offers. Buyers won't offer you the asking price anyway, especially at first, unless you get a buyer who isn't used to haggling or just wants to secure the vehicle quickly.

Please don't take the advice the wrong way; I'm simply trying to assist you in selling your car. And best of luck! :)
