Here it is! took me a while to get pics up. Waiting to pay it off before i do anything to it the only thing i do need to do it put the back wheel arch on properly from when my tyre decided to form a nice egg friend and i tried to take it off thinking it was rubbing with all the weight. Apart from that and the fact the previous owner failed to tell me about the front broken spring and now ive had to replace all the springs its a dreaam
Its revs up to 6,500 no complains and just flies through the gears! I love it, the exhaust is a little to loud for my liking sometimes but i'm not complaining! Engines dont 35,000, well 36,000 now ive been driving it, which is bad considering ive owned it three weeks!
The mods it as are
Lowered, Momo alloys, new engine, tinted rear windows, full exhaust system (unsure what), de-locked (except passenger door :S) alarm, and of course some Fiesta-si.com stickers ;)
Will post more when its had a good clean it should look immense then

nice touch having the alloys, RS skirts, tints and lowered. Engine bay looks well clean mate, nice find. I vote you change the rear wiper for a MK4 one and get an RS bonnet. Looks nice and low in the last pic :thumbsup:

Not bad for £600 I thought. I will have a look at the wipers I generally wouldn't mind it gone and smoothed along with badges etc. It is really low but because of the spring we found broken I'm having to lower it 40mm as that's all coils get at the time, but when I checked the product code on the springs that are on there now it said they are 35mm drop. So it could be even lower!

Wait there now, so youve changed the springs coz the 1 was broken?

so how low is it now? it looks like 60mm

mines suposed to be 40mm and looks the same as yours on the front, but your back is lower.

basically i bought it and thought the lower arm needed doing, when we wen't to do it the spring was snapped, twice, it was hekd on once with a jubilee and i decided maybe swapping would be better, and as my friend only had an hour and i needed a safe car we only swapped the one spring last thursday, but asap i'm getting the other three swapped.
so if you look at the drivers side front its probably a bit higher and now when i change the rest itll be a bit higher, the internet said 35mm but i thought it was lowered alot more than that

I kind of change gear at the red line anyway because I always thought there was a risk of blowing up the engine.. So maybe i'll give 7000 rpm a go :P as if i dont get enough torque steer :P

I had a new plate corsa take off on lights so i went for it just after him and hammered it :P and on the motorway yesterday i had a new looking focus not sure of the year go to overtake me so i sped up and we ended up doing continuos overtakes of each other, then i sat beside him and everytime he sped up, i sped up quicker :thumbsup:
Shes a quick 1.6.

I know ! The mileage drew me in big time. There's no reciepts due to the guy before giving them in for VAT or something.. But pfft it drives and looks
Like a low mileage car.
There was the spring broken ((which we thought was the lower arm) and a slight leak from the sump. 4months MOT 5 months tax.. £800.. I just haggled ;) he seemed desperate enough. I'm glad I did!
