I've been looking for a free flowing air box hose for my car but can't seem to find any marked for the 1.6 Ti-Vct. Anyone know where I can get one? They all seem to be marked for ST/RS.

I just got a Green Cotton air filter and its great but I think id like to add the free flowing air hose to match it and see if that makes any difference.

Lovely job there.
The mk2.5 console is far more stylish than the mk2 one.


Yea definitely, I like the way the carbon effect is continued down the dash and along the centre console. Very nice indeed.

Finally got my dash and centre console sorted. Bit of a nightmare getting the CD player out but got there eventually. Really happy with how it looks, nice and sporty with a touch of class lol loving the little garage door compartment too.

Well I've got my facelift centre console fitted and I must say, I love how everything matches but the roller armrest thingy is class. So comfortable. I just need to wire up the 12v sockets and get my gear stick gaitor surround fitted, supplied by Stoney, thanks mate. Pics to come soon.

I have a full knob, gaiter and the fitting collar and is definitely for a mk2.5 console.
Gaiter has very small cracking at the top near the knob and the insert has minor wear to the silver line but still darn good condition for a used part.
Can I say £25 inc postage?
If you're happy with that then PM me and I'll post my paypal link.
I'd whack it in the post as soon as payment clears.


Sweet thanks, I'll see what the money situation is tomorrow and et back to you. :)

I have one in pretty decent condition you can have for a reasonable remuneration.
They're £97 from Ford and pretty rare on ebay.


£97 each ?! Holy hell lol which side have you got and for how much ?

Excellen mate, thanks for the advice. I think I'll go to ford and order them parts then. I'm sure they're not that costly. Also, so I need a new gear gaitor/surround ? What are those part numbers ?

Follow my guide under this post (when viewed on a PC).
You'll need new kick panels too as the mk2 ones won't fit anymore.
If you need any wiring to connect up the two power sockets give me a shout.


Crap, was hoping I got everything already. Anywhere the kicks plates are immediately available?

I should be ok with the wiring but I'll def take some advice if needed, thanks for the offer. Can I just take a splice from the 12v that's already in front of the gearstick?

Thinking I may get new discs next month, the brakes seem a little weird. Long travel on the pedal before anything happens.

Looks great. How much of a drop is that?


On the box it says 35mm-40mm. It looks lower though, after a week or two it'll bed in nicely so should be around 5mm lower than it sits in those pics.

Right folks it's been a while I know. Work has been mad lately, missed the Irish meet set up my Lenny and the lads because of it.

Anyways I managed to get a few things done, got mud flaps on the rear, finally, all lines up nicely.

Big one today: got my Apex springs on and boy does she look amazing. Perfect. The springs are surprisingly comfortable, not crashy or bumpy at all. The mech actually rang me twice today to chat about how good the car looked lol

Next big thing now will be painting the lower front lip black and getting my front flaps on.

Great peace of mind having done the timing belt mate,
Look forward to some pics on Tuesday evening, mudflaps alone seem to make the car look lower, will look great lowerd and handle even better,
Aswell as looking forward to seeing it at the meet next saturday hopfully the weather is dry on the day won't be long now :)


Just saw your tutorial on mud flaps, might have another go myself at fitting them.

Im getting the Apex 35-45 springs fitted, looking forward to it. Hopefully it'll lower by 40 all round.
