Not a bad start. That steering wheel is toss, put a 3 spoke Si one on. If buying an auto to conver to manual...why not buy a manual to save the hassel, can pick one up for same price. 15" or 16" Gti type alloys would look mint on this colour, who cares if they are common they look mint!


Keep up the modding! :thumb:

I would, just seems wasted energy converting to manual. Just depends how lazy your left foot gets. Sometimes i wish mine was auto because after a long days graft my legs tend to get tired, yet most the time i dont need a clutch going up gears :P

Well, i borrowed my parents 2.0L 16v crysler neon for a few days while my fiesta was being repaired. It was gutless to say the least but had kick down etc. it wasnt toooooo bad to be totally honest. I have also driven a saab 9000 turbo and that went like sh1t off a shovel even for a manual. Shame the head gasket went.

My college lecturer has a mk6 ghiaX which is auto and he says thats fairly quick. In my opinion i like to feel tha biting point because you have more control over the car. The new trucks at work are auto and are crap for fine menoveurs round the yard.
