  1. Hi I have a couple of questions.... Just bought a Mk1 1.8 Ghia saloon and am on the look out for second hand aftermarket parts, my questions are..... - What other brand/models wheels fit the Mk1 focus - Does the focus share shocks and springs with any other model - I assume it has a different exhaust to the normal focus with it having a boot....am I right in thinking this ? - How easy is it to change all the internal bulbs (in the instruments and switches) -what are the max size wheels without any fettling that fit the Mk1, and how much can it be dropped by but keeping it sensible and usable.

    Escort Mk6 Wheels

    Got a question for you guys, would 18's fit with little to no hassle with a reasonable drop of say 30-60mm? I ask here as the escort section seems pretty dead.
  5. The review i left :/ Bought a set of these, not really happy....the back one was way to small, the front one was a little to big (overlays were the same size) and all the curves on the writting are very pixilated its almost as if the production process is unable to make/print a curve. Very disappointed, didn't bother to contact DMB as i have bodged them because you cannot return if you have removed from backing which i did. Just thought i would let you guys know as i am really disappointed and don't want anyone else to get "scammed" like i did :(

    Dmb Gel Overlays

    Hummmm maybe i was a bit hasty to complain but it never crossed my mind that they wouldn't fit and also was a little awkward to see if they are a good fit as they are just on one big backing sheet

    Car Mods - What Floats Your Boat?

    Used to like lairy/ugly boy racer crap when i was younger (34 now) but my plans for THIS car are..... 1 Nice set of black 17/18" wheels 2 Lower it slightly so the wheels FIT the arch (not look like its on stilts but also not so the wheel is inside the arch) 3 powerflow exhaust to get a deeper sound but not to loud 4 maybe get some nice tinted rear lights if i can find any? 5 And get rid of the wood effect dash .....maybe with carbon film...
