    we picked up the wind deflectors (clim air) and the rubber boot liner from ford very reasonable prices considering they came from the main dealer quite chuffed

     

    the next few pic will be showing me fitting the items to the car I particularly like the exhaust pics as it shows off the quality of it really well

    Nice ! and rare bits ! so you not keeping it std then Nate? ha ha ha. Have you considered a space saver and jack and wheelbrace if you are going to be driving it a bit? the blow up repair kit ruins the tyre and TPMS sensor and glues up the inside of the rim something chronic, plus if you get a real bad puncture it wont work and you are stranded at the side of the road for hours!



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?

    where did you get that wheel from ?

     

    no not staying standard im terrible with cars I like to modify them a little bit but this time round as we were buying a new car I wanted to get it all done at the beginning so we could enjoy/get the benefit from the parts over the life of the vehicle….

     

    we have a few cars between us and we have just sold some to reduce the fleet going from 7 to 4 at the moment but as soon as my classic is finished I will be selling it so I can just keep the two cars and one van

     

    our other car is a very rare Saab 93 Turbo X 2.8 v6 xwd which I have tastefully modified with every single Hirsch upgrade

     

    ( consider it like mountune for saabs) some of which now is no longer available and have been NLA for many years

     

    the RS will be used quite often /daily but it will also be garaged and pampered with the usual frequent oil changes etc

    fleabay x type jag and the spare foam liner thing. crucial you get the right size spare rim and tyre combo. I think mine is 115/80 18 but cant be sure 100% , there is a thread on here somewhere, or will check if you need full details.

    while I was on the roll I thought sod it and fitted the inlet manifold

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    I had to use my mates ramp to do the exhaust done are my days of crawling around the floor until I sort my garage out

    I see from your pictures you’ve put on the Mountune Inlet manifold and the Inlet spacer what’s the benefit to the car?

    The rest of the “M” maps suck
