Posted by karlos1987 on Today, 11:42 AM

It would prob be a hell of a lot easier to just get a custom made stainless steel exhaust

So I thought it might be time to get a few pics up of my car.

It started out as a standard titanium when I brought it 2 years ago and probably stayed that way until October last year. So far I have lowered it on just springs. Sprayed grills, fog surrounds and wing mirror covers gloss black. Got aftermarket heater controls xenon bulbs and blue led interior bulbs. I also changed the steering wheel trims to carbon fibre blue

Your thoughts and opinions are welcome.

I know it needs new alloys desperately but they won't come until end of this year just to second baby on way.

Cheers.

Karl

Haha. Lenny you make me laugh.

That does look really good with 18s though.

What is the camber adjustments all about? Is it necessary?

Personally, I think it's a good law, and useless law at the same time.

It will make those who smoke in the car with their children think twice before lighting up and risking their health (or at least risking getting caught) - GOOD.

But for those inconsiderate people who would have smoked if it were NOT illegal, they probably smoke indoors at home next to their children anyway - USELESS.

Personally I don't really have a problem with smokers, it's just the annoying ones who smoke right outside building entrances/bus shelters, or those that smoke whilst walking in a busy town centre that tick me off. The thing I REALLY can't stand are people with awful B.O/bad breath at work, which I often have no choice but to put up with sometimes.

I completely agree about the smoking in the house next to their child. I do think it's a good idea to ban it if there is kids in the car.

It's just plain selfish. It's the same as pregnant women smoking. (let's not get into that 1)

But seriously how do you think they will police this issue. They can't even police the current issue of smoking in a works vehicle.

I have got a 3 year old and I never smoke with him in the car. But if I was to no1 could tell he was in the car because I have tinted Windows.

It's a waste of time but a good idea at the same time.

Posted by karlos1987 on 07 February 2014 - 02:32 PM

I have not got the Bluetooth stereo but if you just want hands-free then I have just used a simple aux lead plugged in, in the glove box. If you want more than that then go for parrots hands-free system. My mate has 1 and they are great.

Posted by karlos1987 on 06 February 2014 - 07:59 PM

I am after some ideas to mod my focus titanium 1.6 petrol. I have already changed all the interior lights to blue. I have not added extras like rear footwells if anyone knows how to do these I'd appreciate the knowledge. Any nice mods for the exterior?

All comments welcome.

Cheers.

Karl

Hi. I'm new to the forum so not sure if I'm posting in the correct place.

I have got a 58plate 5 door 1.6 titanium Ford focus.

I was wondering if I was to replace my bumpers with the St bumpers would it just be a straight swap or is it more complicated than that?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Karl.
