So guys I’ve had my ST2 for about 15 months now and have done quite a few cosmetic mods to it so decided it was time I put a thread up for you all to see how it’s progressing. Hope you enjoy reading this as much as I’ve enjoyed do all the mods.
So here we go;
This is the day I picked it up from the dealers In January 2014 after a 4 month wait from ordering due to Ford completely under estimating the demand in the UK. Seen here with my ZS going the other way in part ex after 11 months ownership.

Took it out for the first drive up on Saddleworth moor, it was January so it got dark pretty early that day,

Mods started pretty much straight away.
First up I put my Brodit phone cradle in powered from the 12v power socket so my iPhone is always charging, very useful when I have the sat nav app running.

Next up added a few extra bhp by adding the club sticker. Decided to place it on the rear window

K&N filter and Mountune silicon inlet hose went in next, this is my only real “performance” mod although let’s be honest the difference is negligible, probably less than the FOC sticker!
Next up lights. Started with de-tango all round
Then number plate bulbs, fitted Cree’s first but wasn’t happy with the light spread so changed for a different style of Cree bulb which give a much better appearance

Finally HID 6000k 35w headlight conversion (just need to hide the ballasts down under the light now)
They do have a slight blue tinge to them so I am considering a change of bulb temp and maybe an upgrade to 55w, although the ones I had in the ZS were 55w and they wouldn’t work in the ST they just flickered then went out so I’m not sure of best way for these?
Next job was interior lights Cree’s again (I do love them) plus red foot well bulbs and a LED strip light in the boot makes it far easier to see at night
