Looking good but I'd invest in some wheels pronto... makes a world of difference obviously.
nah this is all im doing. i cant afford the extra insurance and tyres for alloys so steely's + wheel trims it is. unless i come across a pair of ford factory alloys for cheap. yeah the wheels look abit lost in the arches but it doesnt bother me too much.
i bought the ST headlamps because 1) i needed to replace the current ones because they seemed wobbly as hell inside 2) if new headlamps happened to not fix the problem....at least i got something out of it i.e. a nice look.
im thinking about fog lamps, im just scouring ebay and my local scrappy to see if any of the ST or MP3 style fogs turn up. (they are small projector fog lamps)
i dont know if i can be bothered to paint/replace the black plaggy trim, it looks alright imo, little bit of contrast.
theyre not winter tyres, they're just new. they're just middle of the road all weather goodyears.
I wouldn't alter anything else cosmetically with the car - the headlights are a nice subtle touch though. I see so many base model cars modified with expensive things, usually badly modded at that and I often wonder - why didnt they just buy a car with all the extras on it to start with?
yeah you do see alot of it, but i can see why sometimes. base models are like a blank canvas of sorts, so you can get your imagination going and you dont have to throw away or try selling expensive additions that you no longer need. when i bought it the owner did take what he'd done to it off ( i asked him too)
these included....rubbish alloys that spoilt the handling, a shitty bio-hazard sticker inthe back window, lexus style rear lamps, and cheesy stick on race-style fuel filler cap - it was just ghastly.
i havent done much to my car, i dont plan too either, most of what i have done i have aimed to keep the OEM look. rear lights are all replaced with LED's but its still got the OEM lenses so it looks completely stock. i bought a decent stereo and i think at some point i'll get some decent speakers (in the original positions with stock grills) because i like my music.
i had planned to buy a HID conversion kit from HIDs4U.co.uk, they look top notch and were about ?190 after i found some vouchers....but im holding off for now.
oh btw you can totally see the bumper is wonky lol, the gap under the passenger side headlamp is bigger than on the drivers side. i can get my fingers right under it!
