#261965 2013 Upgrades

Posted by Hassen on 22 May 2013 - 01:35 AM

So after many months of procrastinating, doing research and saving money, yesterday morning I finally pulled the trigger. Ordered the Pioneer AVHx-2500bt and full fitting kit with steering controls off Dynamic Sounds from Ebay. Picking it up soon and will be trying to get it fitted next week at some point. Unsure at present whether to try to fit it myself or to get a professional fit it as my sub and amp will need connecting as well. My only issue is time, which I barely have at the moment or else I would be spending my weekend doing it myself. 

Updates and pictures to follow soon.

Looks the business now with all the neat little touches. Wished I was going to the fair in June now!

Nice decals indeed. The Eat Sleep Ford one is a winner for me :)

Thanks for the valuable info. Saving me a lot of trouble and money along the way. So, my task got a little bit more difficult to source a second hand one as it has to match my car.

This is the unit I was thinking of buying:

It's from a Focus 2008 Titanium. From my limited knowledge of Focus, the Titanium model was only after 2008 with the facelift? Please correct me if I am wrong. I thought that before it was LX, Ghia etc?

 

Lenny, how much would you reckon should I budget for a second hand unit? Doesn't seem to be any around the breakers where I live. Any recommendations where I could source one?

Sorry to hear about your run in with that dealership Lenny. Kudos to you for saying it to them as it is. What they tried to do was just bad practice. Their loss for losing you as a customer. 

 

Car looks ace man! Love how it looks on the lowered springs. Making me tempted to get that done myself now as springs and camber bolt kit is not too expensive. Hope you get the tints and decals done soon. Looking forward to the completed car :)

Exellent about the spray!

 

Did you get/ fit the tuning box?

 

 

FOCA, got the tuning box and like it a lot so far. Have had it for about 3 weeks now and found a setting that I think suits my needs. Will have to do a proper full review on it and my whole experience along with my personal views. Watch this space :)

Need some info guys regarding upgrading from the stock 6000cd head unit in my Focus to the Sony Mp3 unit that's in the higher models.

Are the rear connectors the same on both units? Such that it is pretty much a straight swap without any/much modding?

 

I have this connected to my head unit at present for my aux input:

Will I still be able to use this with the Sony head unit to use the aux input? Or will I need something else to use the aux input?

 

Thanks

Cheers for the info Foca. You are right about the spray when stationary and moving. On my way up on the motorway today, the spray was much nicer with the wind and it was a joy to use as the Irish weather was acting the b******s again. It was bright, sunny and lashing rain at the same time with intermittent patches of dryness.

Definitely worth the money this mod if you use the washers regularly.




#258995 Guide To Fitting Mist Type Jets On Your Ford

Posted by Hassen on 10 May 2013 - 04:22 PM

Excellent guide as usual Lenny. Got myself a pair today and the whole process took about 10 min. That was because I had the jet facing the wrong way at first. Quickly rectified and all working. Much nicer and efficient than the jet types.

Thanks for the info and guide.

I like the idea of the QR code link. That would be pretty sweet if you can get it working.

Sorry about the tablet Lenny. Hope it's salvageable but if not I highly recommend the Google Nexus 7. I adore mine!

As for the Ford Fair, it would be awesome to make it and get a few pics of everyone and their cars. Have to work on making that happen.

How are you getting on with the mods so far Lenny? Everything on track? Can't wait to see the car lowered!

Sweet looking ride and awesome pictures. HDR effect worked really well on those :)

Awesome to hear you entered the car. I reckon it will look top notch once you get it waxed etc. Fingers crossed all goes to plan. 

I am trying to convince the better half that it would be a great trip to the Causeway on the Bank holiday in June. Still working on that plan. Would be a nice long drive from Tullamore 

 

Best of luck and keep us posted as usual.

Looks awesome! How does the car drive like more importantly with the new tyres? And are the new springs and camber bolt on?
More pictures please. Wake up Lenny! :P
