Looking to do some mods to my focus when i get back into the UK next year. What are the best websites/places to go to to get mods from? I have a Mk 3.5 Focus 2.0 150Bhp. Mountune don't do any remaps for my car :sad:

Anybody else have any moments when something else catches your eye? I love my car and enjoying modifying it although progress is slower than i'd like. Anyway just spotted a 2.5 focus that's absolutely fully loaded, they must have ticked every single box when they bought it it's got elec folding mirrors with puddle lamps and handling suspension, full leather, 18" alloys the lot and it's only................forget it you already have a car :biggrin::biggrin:

Some mods I’ve made to my Titanium. 

Gloss black Focus badge, Gloss black Tiranium badge, AutoBeam blue LED sidelights, Rial Arktis gloss black alloys, gloss black honeycomb grille  

Mods to come next; wrap window and foglight chrome trims, black Ford gel badges over boot, bonnet and alloy centre caps.

Looks good but watch yourself with the led sidelights though.

Some of my colleagues up north have no sense of humour with regards to blue bulbs.

Yeah I’m thinking that too, as far as I know they’re legal but the 5-0 could still make me remove them. I didn’t realise how bright they are until it got dark. They’re extremely bright and could be mistaken for an emergency vehicle. Having doubts in my mind.

Has anyone fitted an aftermarket race style steering wheel or know if it is possible to fit one on a mk 2.5 Focus?

Only if you remove the drivers airbag which would be an MOT fail.

Is that one of the new rules coming in?  As long as you fit a resistor to keep the airbag light working it used to pass MOT no problem.

With the right boss and horn wiring you could fit an aftermarket wheel assuming you don't have cruise control.   I'm not a fan of them but have fitted a few to mates road legal track cars.

Found a guy that only lives up the road from me and he sells Car specific flat bottomed racing style steering wheels for €250. 

And using YouTube videos to see how to change steering wheels. Seems manageable.

That is a smart looking wheel, some customisation went into that.
Carbon effect inserts would really set it off.

I was thinking the same thing Stoney. Only thing is I was thinking of upgrading to the mk 3.5 st line or potentially the ST if I can get the right finance. Might be a waste of time getting one because I can't swap it onto my next car 🤔🤔

New BBS SR wheels and tyres fitted. Came with some lovely chrome wheel nuts, but I had to buy a set of lock bits. I Will be painting the rear hubs in satin black soon. 

I debadged the back apart from the Focus on the left life And got some new black S badges, two for front wings and one for the boot.

From a few YT videos and photos I have seen it will, however you lose middle seatbelt and have to cut off the seatbeat belt clip

Thanks Ferrit. I’ll leave it so. The seller won’t let the front ones go without the rear bench.

Am I right in thinking a facelift ST cloth interior will fit in my pre facelift LX.

I'm pretty sure it will fit but not sure about the connectors.
