Looks like the business. I like the gold colour. Quite subtle. What did you use to paint it?

Paint brush.

Its a shame theyre only 278mm behind ST225 wheels. Imagine 300mm ST225 ones .

#459989 Fitting Focus Alloys To 2013 1.0 Ecoboost Fiesta

Posted by yunii on 01 March 2015 - 04:06 PM

Might be wrong but I think focus are five studs and fiesta are four

The mk1 1998 S to 2001 51 & mk1.5 2002 51 to 2005 05 is 4 stud & as it was mentioned st170 , is definetely 4 stud. The mk2 from 2006 onwards were all 5 stud focus's.

Had my tracking done recently aswell,
They put in the ST perimiters and traked it to those,
I must say it turns in alot tighter than it used to is great,
  Discs and pads will look great how much were they and have you ever used BlackDiamond before?

No ive not used BlackDiamond before but read good reviews on them. But like all . In heavy race use ( highly unlikely in mine or your case cos we dont have that performance) they can crack when theyre drilled & grooved. Also heard the a little noisy .maybe whistling thru holes.
These cost me £165 inc pp.
Dcp performance.co.uk is cheapest.
Mine were price matched by LK performance in west yorkshire.

#458392 Kpg's Focus Mk2 Titanium

Posted by yunii on 25 February 2015 - 08:11 AM

Some news.

The car is up for sale. I mentioned a while back about some knee trouble the pedals heights were giving me. It hasn't gotten any better at all which is why I'm forced to sell. I'm worried it'll cause me serious problems as I get older, it's that painful. I still love the car, it's the best I've ever owned but I have no choice really.

It's up for sale on a few places, I'm not sure I'll get asking price but I'll see how it goes for now.

Not sure what to look for in regards to a new car. I'll have to keep an eye open for something I can get with the money from the sale. If it sells.


Sent from my iPhone 5s.

All that hard work , effort , money , labour gone into it will be on a plate for someone else for price of standard car. I was in the same boat but for different reasons on my mk1.5 esp. Saying that i removed & sold all or most parts. I really miss my old car more than this Titanium. You will see why when i re post build thread again for memory.

More update!
Just had 4 wheel alignment done.
I was surprise to see the how much alignment was out.
O/side rear was towing out 5mm
Nearside rear towing in
O/side front out
Nearside out or something like this .in other words in was out of align. But it never felt any misbehaviour on road. I was quite surprised.
