  1. I'm selling my Escort 1.8 Si. See E-Bay link for full description. Would make a good project or someone could buy it for parts. No MOT or tax. 115369 miles. £100 starting bid. Message me to arrange a viewing. Ebay Link
  2. I haven't driven my car for about a week, yesterday evening driving home from work the power to the radio cuts out and the rev counter stops working. This morning same thing happened only the radio came back on, but goes off when brake lights or indicators are on, then comes back on when the lights go out. Also pulling away from the lights as the revs got to about 3,000 (just a guess as the rev counter still wasn't working!) I lost about half the power and the car started to jerk. I changed gear and it was ok, normal power until it reached similar revs, this happened for all the gears. Any sort of info on this would be great. Cheers
  3. Yeah ok its only a small gain in BHP but surely the 2.0 will have more potential to tune than the 1.8, or would you just reccommend tuning the 1.8? I'm not looking for crazy BHP figures, up to 200BHP, so my thinking was that this would be easier achieved from a 2.0. Any advise would be appreicated Cheers
  4. Cheers for the offer Reid, sounds a very reasonable price, just the distance putting me off. I like the idea of taking the missus up for the weekend, sounds like a win-win situation for all, might have to consider this if no one down here can do it. Does anyone know of someone who could do this for me in the london area tho? This would be more ideal for me. Thanks
  5. I have searched and read up about this conversion and decided it would be too complex for me to do myself as I don't have a garage full of tools and don't feel as tho I have the nessessary skills. My question is to anyone in the Watford area who has had this conversion done. I would like to know where they got it done and how much it all costs - the grand total that is including all the parts that where purchased and the fitting. Thanks guys, info would be much appreciated as I'm really interested in having this conversion done.
  6. Cheers for all the photos! I've decided on the 3" I think it's a more subtle look. Thanks a lot everyone
  7. Thanks for the pics guys. Has anyone got a pic of a 3" exhaust with standard mk6 bumper? I'm still thinking the 4" might look too big on my car as I want to keep it looking fairly standard, although I think they do look good on all the cars pictured. This is what I'm doing to my car and the plans I have: I've put my standard headlights back on, I'm refurbing my alloys, I want to lower the car slightly and put a new exhaust system on it, and perhaps a 2.0 conversion in the future. So I think the 3" might be more suited to this look, what do people reckon?
  8. I've been trying to find pictures of mk6 escorts with either a 3" or 4" exhaust with standard bumper as I am unsure which size would suit my car. So if some kind people could post some pictures of their exhaust so I can compare the two sizes I would be very grateful! I'm after an exhaust with a nice sound but not too loud and not too in your face big which I think the 4" might be, but I need to see what it looks like on the car so I can see for sure. Thanks in advance!
  9. I wouldn't change the looks of the focus st that much as I think it looks f***ing quality as it is, especially in tht colour. So here are my small changes: The first change was flipping the image so tht the steering wheel is on the correct side, Smoothing the front bumper of the headlight washer jets and tow cover, De-badging the front grill and changing the colour of the plastic strip across the top of the grill to match the silver surrounding the fog lights. Small ST badge on front grill. It's hard to think of ways to change such a lovely looking car! Plus my skills on photoshop are very limited. http://i196.photobucket.com/albums/aa72/micwilliams/FocusSTcopy.jpg
  10. Last link not working, let me try again. Culture Beat - Mr Vein
  11. Here's a list of a few old skool tunes I've got. Couldn't find the proper vids for some of them. Micky Fin - Wishing on a Star (Drum & Bass) Rhythm on the Loose - Break of Dawn Ray Keith - The Chopper (Shy FX Remix) 2 Unlimited - Maximum Overdrive Culture Beat - Mr Vein
  12. Also, not a big issue but would save me spraying them, what colour black are the skirts? Ash black by any chance?
  13. Yeah ok if you could get a price for delivery, because thts too far for me to travel. Cheers
  14. How much for the skirts? Also where are u located, i'm guessing i'l have to collect due to the size. Cheers.
