Finally, after having past my test 6 month ago, I have my 1st car! :D A Ford Escort 1.4 in Autumn Green :cheers:

Here is how it I bought it, will update as things go, nothing major is going to happen but i've already bought some skirts & spats and i'm after some decent gtri/modeo/soft spoke alloys and then I said that would be it...but i'm already getting idea's.

The beast, and my brothers car...

So far the plans are to get the spats and skirts sprayed that i've bought and buy some new wheels, then i think i'm going to get some 5x7's as there is already 5x7 slots in the parcel shelf.

Just waxed the car today with the beemer so will get some pics up later when aaron puts them on :)

Also to clean the inside!

Aaron, is the front bumper of the Beemer a slightly different shade?

Escorts a good start, I had a couple of the base models to start with

U 2 are brothers??

Good base..im wondering if the 1.6 is actually cheaper to run over the course of a year than the 1.4? (with the economy of the 1.4 being so aweful)

yeah me and Liam are brothers 6years between us.

He's not getting to bad MPG out of it TBH - plus... He's just paid £1700 insurance on a 1.4.......1.6 was 2400. lol. then you got to think about next year....he had the cash from his 18th to pay for it all...next year he wont when renewal is around....
