Good Day

Traded inn my Suzuki Swift Sport and bought a 2011 FL Focus ST (225) December 2014 - always wanted one - for now I will not focus on engine mods as I still got 2 years extended Ford warranty on the car.

My previous ride:

New ride - Couple of pics (100% Stock @ Dec 2014):

I detailed the engine:

Mods Done...so far:

1. Milltek Decat (27-Jan-2015):

Removed the stock cat system:

And fitted a bolt-on Milltek decat, lot more pops with some added power and better fuel consumption figures:

Image


2. Imported Rays Lug Nuts (6-Feb-2015) going to fit soon, got to sort out rims 1st:

To be continued...

Did some interior mods:

Carbon wrapped my side sills - noticed the steel side sills scratched easy, did this more to protect them:

The aircon knobs looked kinda old school and got these to replace them:

Stock knobs:

Aftermarket Knobs:

Strange how those small little changes make a huge difference.

From what car does those knobs come off?

The Facelift Mk3 Focus without Climate Control come with similar looking knobs. He said his were aftermarket, so I'm guessing off Ebay or similar...
