Very nice, the pro race suit it so much better than the stock wheels. The splitters look good but the badges need removing on one of them.

Cracking effort all around pal.

Loving the wheels I must say. Need to get some black wheel bolts for our RS Clio as the silver ones do my nut in!!

Just to confirm, yep, I can see the pics on my laptop.

Fantastic write up and cracking car, if I was being uber critical I'd say I'm not a fan of the grille and splitter logo's/emblems/inserts, even more so as they are different makes.

Did they ever get the wheel the right colour?

Yea I know their not to everyones liking, I'll probably keep them on until this time next year and then remove them if I do anymore mods.

Thanks very much. Yea check out some TPI bolts, thats what I used to have on my Clio, their far cheaper than McGard ones etc.

Yea I know, but I really don't want to start messing about with them and make a ******** of it, especially now I've got the car looking so well, maybe down the line though. No they never got it sorted, they came back and had a 3rd attempt but didn't get it right, so I've written to Ford to see what they plan to do to correct the situation, will keep you all up to speed on how that one pans out.

Looks good John, just had the AM finished with the same, you will not be disappointed. Copper grease is the answer to sticking valve caps I think. Paul.

Yea its looking good so far, I'm happy with how its turned out.

Yea I've used copper grease before on them, but I could see the caps walking if I left them on all the time lol.

Thanks very much, theres a few more things I'd like to do to it but I'm going to take my time getting there as all the work so far has happened a lot quicker than I expected.
