Fiestagirl's Mk7 Titanium


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

I've had my 1.6 Mk7 Titanium (Diesel) for almost a year now and thought i'd make a little thread with what i've done so far and what i have planned!

Also i'd like your opinions as to what you think so far and any ideas on what i should do next :)

First off heres a few pics of what it was like when i bought it. (I'd added the stickers on the back of it)

One if the first things that i decided to do was to swap over the Ford badges for some that i bought from DMB graphics online for i think around £11.00 for the pair.

I also wanted to swap the original badge as mine was looking abit crappy on the chrome.

I got my badges in White and Blue :)

Before and after pics: Front badge

Rear badge
The next thing i did was to get it lowered. I'd heard the the Titanium stood around 10mm higher than other models as standard. (I'm not 100% sure on this)
I bought Eibach 40mm Lowering Springs brand new off Ebay for £150.00ish.
Here are some before and after pics: (My car is disgustingly dirty in some of these pics i am sorry haha)

Now that it's bedded in it has lowered slightly more.
I'm happy with the choice i made as it looks lower without being too harsh a ride.
I then bought some side stripes again off DMB Graphics in white and added them on :)

This is how my car looks now after a good scrubbing! (It was much needed!)

The next thing that i have planned is a spoiler, i have already bought one off Ebay for about £100.
I'll upload some pics of it when i've had it sprayed and fitted which should be in the next few days.
I would also eventually like to get my alloys sprayed in Frozen White.
Any comments and feedback are all welcome :)

Hi!

Good you got that spoiler! A fiesta without a spoiler just isn't finished IMO!

Yeah that spoiler just finishes it off doesn't it! :) I can't wait to get it on now!

She's defo gettin another Ford like me she's loves the toys in the top spec models , folding mirrors, heated windscreen, cruise etc..

She's looking at the new ST Fiesta and the new B-Max Titanium X Powershift, think the B-Max might win though as we've got 2 grandchildren and 5 doors would be really useful with the child seats , am hoping Ford do a 5 door Fiesta ST as in the Focus.

No 5 door in the ST I'm afraid unless you go to the States.

Germany also has the 5 doors. My younger brother has the five door titanium with sideskirts. If I remember correctly they got the sideskirts from an ST in germany

Bought a new badge completely as mentioned previously. My old one had started to split and peel on the chrome around it.

Got it back today! Hopefully going on tomorrow but my washer pipe just needs extending a little as it doesn't reach fully ATM.

Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

the way i got around extending the washer pipe was if you give it a little pull not too hard but it does reach mine reached fine it was looped up in mine and once relased pulled straight out with plenty to play with :)

I wasn't able to pull anymore of the washer pipe through so just added a little piece on :)

Next jobs are new bulbs all round, and detango and then the EGR blanking plate :D

Niceone!, it looks the dogs swingy bits! Awesome!, do u do the work yourself? Or get it done ?

Sent from my HTC One X using Ford OC mobile app

Thanks! :D I'm pretty impressed with it myself haha! Yeah I did most of it myself but did have a helping hand :)

Just need to take it back to the guy that sprayed it so he can just do a couple if touch ups. He seems like a perfectionist cause I can't see anything wrong with it but I'm not complaining :D
