    Easy enough to do, & you only need an exhaust 'trim' for a few quid to finish the job.

    Attach dash cam at the top of the screen to the left of the rear view mirror. 
    Then hard wire it via the fuse box behind the glove box, then route wire up towards screen by hiding wire behind the rubber on the 'A' post & across the screen towards the rear view mirror. finally expose just enough wire to plug into dash cam.

    I'll probably be abused but if I saw a car with that on I would be thinking it is there to cover up rust along the edge of the bonnet.
    A bit like in the cortina era where so many cars had the sills and bottom 3 inches of the doors painted in black hammerite

    5 doors are far less aesthetically pleasing to me, that's why I got the Fiesta ST in the first place over the 5 door focus.

    I didn't realise they were putting those daft ST line badges on the red and black editions as well until the weekend.  Was at a promo event looking round the new cars and overhearing the poor salesman trying to explain how an ST Line isn't an ST to various people several times.

    Speeding isn't the biggest killer on our roads, but it's the simplest & most profitable one to tackle.

    That's not the point I was making. Of course driving safely is of paramount importance. But it feels less achievable when you feel as though you have to watch the speedometer like a hawk because cameras are lurking around every corner.
    Speed cameras don't really solve the major problem that is viral levels of bad driving that we all see, day in day out. They just make it more acceptable for idiots to drive dangerously because they are less likely to kill someone when doing so. Speed cameras are cheap and crude policing and now they largely replace traffic officers who should be out there punishing people who cause accidents. You know the type - aggressive, phone using, cutting up, self important toss pots. Exactly the sort that the yellow piggy banks can't catch.
    ...end rant...

    Anyway, while we are all watching the speedometer, we can instead neglect to watch the road :)

    Yes it gets boring 
    in any case of a speeding ticket from a mobile van, make sure it's parked in a legal place, if not get pictures of it and contest any fine.
    its becoming a game up my way, the vans are being parked in bus stops and completely covering foot paths to catch speeders. One guy has been catching them out and putting in official complaints.

    Springs will be the cheapest way to lower, & you won't need new 'struts & shocks'.

    To be legal they can be any colour as long as they show a red light when the rear lights are turned on & the brake is operated, & have the correct eu/bs markings.

    Might be cheaper & less aggravation to just buy a more powerful car.
