I have recently bought a Ford Fiesta 1.1L in the mark 3 shape. It's not a bad car, it has the HCS engine with single point injection. So far I have added the RS Turbo alloys (14" 3 spoke, which I need centre caps for!) and an exhaust adapter.

Need to get:

set of lowering springs and shocks maybe 60mm
definately centre caps for the alloys
XR2i side skirts, and wheel arches
XR2i front and rear bumpers I have in my shed and need spraying to match the car
2.0L DOHC engine is also in my head...

If anyone can think of anything t hat will make it look better feel free to drop us a pm. cheers

Here are some pictures I took today before leaving my garage:

Looks like a good base to start with mate! 8-)

Do whats on your list, along with a Mk3 spoiler and a backbox rather than exhaust tip :thumbsup:

cheers for the replies guys. I only stuck the exhaust tip on because my pals described the tail pipe as a 'rusty floppy penis' lol.

I was looking at the Si's last night and discovered I prefer the rear bumper to the RS rear bumper, was possibly gonna buy the Si bumper and mix and match the body kit but it might look at bit odd, what do you guys think?

I would either go for one or the other if I was you, wouldn't mix and match. It has been done and can look ok, but doesn't look right imo 8-)

Nice :)

If it hasnt got the anti roll bars already.. then that is a cheap upgrade you MUST do :thumbsup:

With regards to bumpers...

Either:
Full RS/XR kit as you said.
Si front with ZS rear
RS/XR front with ZS rear


Si rear and RS/XR front looks odd, and abit crap :)

LOL. It has been well looked after, I know that for a fact (my Grandad clocked 58k miles going to the shop in the morning and back :doh: )

I've put a new middle section in and a twin barrel exhaust on her now, looks and sounds better, I'll upload some pictures soon (I thought nobody would be interested in a little old dog like this one - with all these cossies and rs's floating about!)

I need to get a k&n filter attached up for the throttle response, just a matter of finding the right one. Got a set of angel eyes coming through soon also, but I'm concentrating on my E30 BMW, I want to get some mods done to that aswell.

What's been done to your fezzer? Or have you just stuck to the basics? I wouldn't blame you if you have, especially at this day and age! :lolz:

make sure you look after her. 1.1 is a beautiful car and if its looked after itll keep going. It will also surprise you with how nippy it can be :)

1 way to sum up the 197 is like sex, you build upto the best bit and when it eventually happens it only last a few seconds but you always want to do it again!
Poor Orange Si is hurt. Started first time after sitting for 3 weeks and with virtually no petrol in it
