IMO, your starting point shud be.....

de-badge and de-strip it etc

get EVO stickers and screentop

Get smoked or clear side repeaters

get either some Mondeo Zetec 16s on there or some nice 17s, lower it 35/40mm

get a K&N

clean it all up (I mean really clean it properly, take off wheels and everything to get to all the hidden places)

then upgrade to a full exhaust system

then start worrying about kit and lights etc :cheers:

that'll get u an ultra-smart car, then take it as far as u want to go in your own time :thumb:

I wouldnt like to comment, I got mine colourcoded when i had the kit fitted, just waiting for a date to run it in to get handles, locks and rear plastic panel coloured.

My previous escort i bought already had the bump strips removed but after having it a week i soon noticed what a bodge job they had done.

I believe the bump strips are no longer on Mikes car.

If i decide to sell the car will probably be up for sale in the 1k region, mods and all.

imo first thing i would do is give it a good clean inside and out. spend the day polishing/ waxxing hovering the inside and dont forget to clean the windows inside aswell and as a bonus you might even end up with biceps like arnie. even if you plan on buying jacksters its still worth doin
