  1. Sort of an update on this. A friend of mine got this and is now repairing it in his workshop. I'll update when he knows the score with it. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  2. They do some 16s off the eco sport. Has a look earlier. Rocking horse ***** though. The pug fitment ones will indeed fit. 10mm more poke than I have now though and I don't think that I can get away with it. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  3. Yeah ***** my wheel. Does anyone know if 16 inch steelies exist? Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  4. Hit a pot hole last night. Definitely bent a wheel. I think I've also snapped a spring. I'll get it on a ramp during the course of today and give it a look over. Means it'll be on its 3rd set of wheels now. [emoji23]. Ford make ***** wheels. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  5. So race day has been and gone. I didn't come last which was my main aim. [emoji23]. Auto solo. Lot harder than track driving. The fiesta is not made for it. Well this one. In fact the main issue of the day was the ePAS it didn't react fast enough and kept going stiff due to the high demand on it. The guys there purposefully don't run this system for the exact reason. By the end of the day I was about 3 seconds slower than the ST on a tight course lasting around 50 seconds a run. This is a huge difference on these courses. The main issue was the pas. Having to go wide to allow the steering to keep working. I've decided it was such good fun that me and a friend are joint buying a small jap thing to race in next year's season. All he Yaris, sirions, Ignis sports etc were ***** most people. They're light, full electronic steering and the gearing is mainly leave in second and Kane it. Interestingly it was mostly standard cars there. I now know why. The courses are rough as hell and I felt bad for my fiesta. I got a couple of scratches from 1 event. So I need a.second vechile for this Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  6. Race day tomorrow. All cleaned. One other fiesta also enterd. St150 Mk6 so.should be interesting comparing times. If I don't come dead last. I'll count it as a successful day. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  7. My mates went to look at/buy today. If I had the money to risk I would but I'm saving up for a workshop. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  8. Tyres, cat, headlight level device. It's a toss up. Basically it's a lot of money for me to sit on and if a workshop comes up I want a deposit ready to go. Not tied up in a car. If they take an age to sell. That's pretty much answers my question. It's why I asked he [emoji23] Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  9. Had a look on eBay they go for strong money still. Debating if I could buy and and IF I would be willing to let it go. Considering I've always wanted one Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  10. As title. For £1000 guys leaving the country. What sort of money do these go for if I was to repair. It's sea grey and in fair condition Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  11. Not much has really happened to the car. Just been enjoying it while it's working as it should. I do have a small update though. I'm booked on my first auto solo race ever on the 20th of October. In this. Which will be interesting Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  12. Ive done a load of swaps in my time on various models and makes. The one piece if advice i can give you is ALWAYS buy a donor car. It Always works out cheaper. A rear ended st would be the best bet. Then swap all the bits. It time consuming but easy. Most modern cars use the same looms for body and diffrent for engine bay for example Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  13. Yeah dpf and egr if theyre visable are now an mot fail. However most of the time testers cant see an egr blank. Its the reason i wont own a dpf model diesel anymore. Cant remove them without big fines . Which sucks. Ive currently got a mk6 fiesta that doesnt have a dpf. Just has a cat. Shame really Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  14. No not the 110 turbo. I hate that thing. [emoji1787] It's the 115 turbo off the dv5s or new 1.5 engines. They'll do 144 hp but torque everywhere. Almost direct fit. It already has the higher flowing 110s in. Matched the codes up [emoji108] Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  15. I can't put money in and not worry. I have a mortgage and child to pay for [emoji23]. No I don't keep a spread sheet. I have an app on my phone that I used to use per tank and worked out the mpg. Mainly just to keep an eye on sudden drops. Mine gets between 45-57 mpg depending on how I drive and how many tools I am carrying that week. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
