Im stealing the mrs 2001 mk5 fiesta 1.25 zetec and bringing it to Germany with me (as my Fiesta RS Turbo would probably die once it left Belfast LOL), so i had to replace her car!

2003 Ford StreetKa Luxury
89k
Cream Leather
Air Con
Completely stock

Got it for a bargain in comparison to the rest advertised!

Plans:

Metro style number plates
Lower on ebay coilovers
Escort Cosworth alloys
Good buff
Sort out a wee split in the rear window
Spray in the meshing satin black (front bumper grille, the grille above the front bumper and the strip below the tailgate

Surprisingly nippy wee car for having the chain driven 1.6 8v Rocam engine!! Heres pics:

The seats being that colour is a no no for me, just because I could imagine them getting dirty quite quick lol

well ask on here :lol: i've got a k+n panel filter and ripped off the airbox restrictors and a: induction noise is immense and b: much more responsive!

AFAIK - exhausts for sport/streetka have to be custom or modded fiesta/ka systems :cry:

Just got home last night to see the mrs, and since the last journey home - my mate went hunting and found me a really cheap set of escort cosworth wheels. Completely original paintwork, few marks and scrap tyres. But tyres didnt matter as i needed at the most 195/45/16s to get them on the wifes StreetKa. Its a good job that stock StreetKa wheels have 195/45/16s on them :)

So got them fitted, give the car a mini valet and a good polish. I think as it is, the ride height is fine. But to pull off a better look, it will need slammed. So 50/50 at the min whats gonna happen. Its going tomorrow for a cat-back stainless system and i think i will get a set of metro style plates tomorrow.

Here is the pics anyway:

Definately getting a hardtop soon, get all the grilles blackened, and debadging at the front! But considering de-tangoing the headlights and buying another bootlid to debadge the rear and flush the recess for the badge!
