New sub... Alpine SWX 1243D. Just chucked in the boot to keep it out the house tbh, it will be run of an Alpine PDX 1.1000 which is sitting in the house just now. But waiting till I get the ret of the system bought before it all gets hooked up at same time


Really does take up alot of boot space!

I will be going to rstuning too. Looked into a few places and it seems like the best in Britain.

I live not far from Glasgow mate. Thanks for the compliment, I've been through a stage with previous car of dropping it 90mm on coilovers and bodykits, past that stage now.

Oh not far from me then... lol

I never really did much to my last car, but bought this and did nothing to it for a year then went on some forums... lol

Knew all the things I wanted to do to it, was just a case of money and being the right time.. All that's left now is to sort all these LEDs out for footwell lights, interior light, glovebox light and sidelights, a remap and then I'm done

Don't know why you chose chrome fog surrounds as IMHO doesn't go with white car - will look good when you get the plastics sprayed (on my wish list too!)

Apart from that all good :)

Ben, if I can get 120bhp+ and 200 torque, I'll be a happy man. My focus was running well over 230 torque and 130bhp using a tuning box.... but with the weight of the the Fez would be a better drive given above figures.

If you're up for arranging a remap at the same time as me, I am up for it too. Will make the day a better day.

Tidy mods. My front badge has started to corrode on the chrome edges. Might look into DMB, I know they're highly rated, but never seen a close up before. Drums also look much better!

Dmb badge doesn't fit right around the chrome edge, you're needing a new badge buddy. I had to buy a full new badge them dmb only covers Ford logo.

Mate. I completely agree with you. I bought the fog surrounds at the same time as I bought the car..... fitted em, then changed my mind. I have the black surrounds in the cupboard alongside all the standard parts I've taken off the car..... I will be using the standard surrounds to get painted and will probs sell the chrome surrounds at that point.

I thought I preferred em..... but not anymore.

I have 3 or 4 things I wanna di in the very near future.... all external, and I wanna see if I can somehow arrange to get em all done on the same day. Would be amazing to have a morning and evening pic :D

You don't remove the badge - just stick over the top!

I dunno if he's referring to the fact I did actually change the badge before putting the DMB graphic on.... one of the first things I done, pics in first post of before and after.

To take the badge off, it's only stuck on with adhesive.... get a flat screwdriver, wedge it behind the badge at one end, and start wedging it off slowly, making sure you're not damaging the grille with the screwdriver... could use a cloth to be extra careful if you like.

One I got just a little bit bent up, I grabbed it with pliers and rolled the badge around them until it was fully off, voila!
