I've had my car for a couple months now so it's time I make a timeline build thread.
Originally I had a deposit down on a Toyota 86 GTS, after waiting over 4 months for it to be made in Japan I lost interest and started to look around at what else was on offer. I had a look at the Megane RS, the Opel Astra OPC and the Focus ST which all were in a similar price bracket as the Toyota 86. After driving all of the cars I was interested in I finally settled on the Focus, so we ordered the car and picked it up on the 16-11-2012 from the Ford dealership
At the dealership.
Shortly after we were ready to go, we said goodbye to our old Astra SRi-T (trade in) and were on our way. The drive home was fun, we were stuck in traffic for a while, so this gave us plenty of time to play with all the gadgets and see how everything worked.
Once home the dealership number plate surrounds and stickers were binned and the car received a quick foam wash to remove the dust on the paint, I'll be getting stuck into it on Sunday with a full detail and opti-coating.
One of the things that was bugging me since collection were the ugly amber indicator bulbs, so when we got home they were the first thing to go.The front and rear bulbs were replace with Philips PY21W SilverVision bulbs, these will flash amber but not look fugly inside the lights.
Two bolts and the the front lights were out.
Out with the old amber bulbs and in with the new chrome bulbs.
Next the rear bulbs were swapped out.
Lastly the T10 amber bulbs in the mirrors were replaced with chrome ones.
After wash and new bulbs. (Couldn't quite get the drl's to show in the photo)
