    Few recent pics, given a decent clean, i also waxed it this weekend using dodo juice stuff.





    Added an S badge to the front grill, (i think i like it)










    Added a land rover footrest next to clutch pedal and got some stainless sill plates to fit. Will probably leave engine standard. Seems to be loads of modifications available for the car. Must resist spending money on it.

    Ford really nailed this generation of Fiesta. They're great looking cars!

    Trading this in for a 2017 ST3 on Wednesday. Quickly lost £4k in value during the time I've had it so thought may as well lose the money on a faster one instead.

    Already ordered the mountune mp215 for it. Basically an airbox and a remap to take it to 215ps

    Yeah, I generally don't like Fords, but I love the way they managed to style the Aston Marting lookalike front end with the big grille - makes the cars look really sporty and aggressive, regardless of what's under the hood.

    I can't say that I don't like Ford, but I agree that this generation of Fiesta is really good.

    I would say no cylinders is the way forward, but traction motors.. now that is where the future lies.

    Here's the new daily, Fitted the MP215 (corrado still feels faster to me), fitting some mountune lowering springs next week. Corrado is back on the road these days as well.



    Had it polished and ceramic coated a couple of weeks back
