Right where do i begin, bought my fiesta of eBay for £200, it was sold with 2 months tax but no MOT, just under 64,000 miles on the clock. Same day i saw it i went to buy it, and here we are now. I'l try and add everything i can as i have some pictures but others you will have to use your imagination lol.

I didnt take a picture of how it was when i first bought it but after a while i found this site and had another account on here which got deleted for apparently botting/spamming -_-, but i got some FSI car stickers and i got a set of Fiestaturbo.com's of a friend..

^Amazing night in the snow in, handbrake was abused!

Was looking around for standard alloys for my fiesta but after a while i gave up because there wasn't any worth even getting refurbished, after having a brain wave sticking to a colour scheme i decided to paint my FSI steelies.. now i know what your all thinking lol but judge for yourself!
Image

Had a offer on some lowering springs only a fool would refuse! Brand new never been used PI 60mm lowering springs for £20!
Image
Image

Not really a mod but i had my clutch cable snap, now fair enough it was old it looked old and felt old. Fitted another one, and after two weeks it snapped, again. Bought another one and fitted it, went to do a service and having a look around i noticed the nib had got caught in the holder, causing it to end and eventually fray and then snap! As it had already started to fray i bought yet another one (me and half the fella's in motorparts direct are on first name terms). When replacing this one, i filed down and around the end ball so it could move freely, after a great success i caked it in copper grease and touch wood, it has been fine for around a year!


I did actually search here for a exhaust of some sort, after having no luck with finding someone that wasn't in Wales or places i cant spell, i sourced a RS1800 4inch stainless steel Mongoose cat back from some guy on ebay, i do have a video but i will have to upload later on!
Image


At this time i was bored completely of my grotty white steel wheels and i bought a set of Zetec-s phase 2 alloys, and had them refurbished and powder coated in white.

Here is me and my mates astra

After fitting my exhaust i could be heard by i wanna be seen ;) only one answer, HIDS. I did ask about on here for advice because i was worried about the glass headlights being obscured, i didn't want to blind everyone. But i did it anyway, as you can see on this pic my mate took at a recent car meet lol.

But here she stands now, the added FreshUK sticker adds BHP ;)

Today after pulling a sickie at work i fitted mk3 shocks to my mk3.5!
took some pics for everyone to have a nose, i made a 0.6mm shim and its in there seated nice and tight :)
Image
by the way you need mk3 top suspension cap, and bolt and washer as its a slightly bigger thread than the mk3.5!
Image
Image
^perfection!
Image

And the end result..

Thanks for reading :), if any questions let me know or any idea's what more i could do let me know :)

Ditch the gay motorsport stickers and de-badge the rear. Will look much better!
