I have hardly slept since the day I put the deposit on this, and it finally arrived on 7th Jan, and I picked it up on the 8th!


Felt quite sorry saying good bye to my Civic Sport, but after 10mins in this, I felt somewhat better


Did all my pre-drive-out checks and recommended by the forum
took the salesman by surprise - didnt know what to do with himself so after 20mins of watching me go round the car with a microscope, he eventually said "I'll just wait inside"
couldnt stop laughing.

Once it was all paid for I went straight out to the car, put on the
badge onto my grill
and then fitted my footwell leds
modded before it left the forecourt


So here are the first pics.... prob something you've all seen a hundred times, but theyre still awesome to me
Location - Penarth Marina, Cardiff

Mountune kit and exhaust being fitted tuesday, and tints on rear windows and rear windscreen too some time next week.

Ps. If any of you can help out on my other thread I'd be most grateful http://www.focusstoc.com/forums/Ford-Parts...771#entry638771

PPS. Almost forgot to say, had to go back earlier as the
heater wasnt working - blowing in ice cold air
turned out the cable behind the dial was bent and wasnt adjusting it to the engine. 2 mins to fix so happy again now

Cheers guys. It is amazing, and i completely understand why you all love your cars so much now


And Glenster - I'll give you a clue ....

Were not popular with everyone, hence my signature bit at the end. Noticed there seen to be a fair few on here though.

Cant wait for the Mountune, the one I test drove had it on, and that was a 5 min drive, and I miss it already!

Looking good mate, and very shiny (puts mine to shame). Sorry you couldn't make it to the meet we had this morning in Cowbridge. Maybe next time.

Ian.

yeah you wont have any problems here with people hating police - to be honest, if they start recruiting again this year im thinking of going for it, its a life long dream of mine!

Id love to get mountune but i think mines a bit old for it! if i got a facelift id put mountune on it.

Cheers guys. Its drinking fuel now mind lol but thats to be expect from testing it properly


STEO - its got voice bluetooth but no usb
but never mind, I'll cope


Gunna try the welcome home lights thing later, see if it work or not. And apparently, its hard to retro fit the other parts I wanted as we discussed, but never mind. Far too skint now anyway!

Mountune on Tuesday (weather and courior depending of course) so I will put pics up of the exhaust and a video if I can.

May even do a mini movie like the Mountune one on youtube.

Cant wait to go to a meet. Gutted I missed the breakfast meet in Cowbridge for the South Wales lot
