  1. He means 18 or above, otherwise the wheel won't clear the caliper
  2. What model is your car? Is your car a 1.6 Zetec Jeans?
  3. Pilot Sports are awesome if you can afford them, if not Goodyear Eagle F1s are a damn good 2nd choice IMO
  4. Keep the disks until they are ruined and have a nice big lip. You should be looking at 2-3 sets of pads per set of disks However if the disks are being replaced, use new pads... which normally come with most disks
  5. Definitely a leak if there is condensation on the inside. Pull the trim off and get a friend with a hose on the case I'd recommend getting a dehumidifier in there once it's sorted to get rid of the water before that lovely mouldy smell appears
  6. Sounds like your mind is made up. The 2.0 TDCi can be mapped to 170+ My mate has an Astra G SRi Turbo (190), and Lotus did the chassis work on that. My standard 2l ran rings round it everywhere except the straights. It looks awesome though. Your choice at the end of the day. I'm not particularly bothered about car brands, I buy the car which IMO is the most fun to drive... which is why I'm on my 3rd Focus.
  7. They were identical on the mk1 aside from the top half as the exit pipes were different on the 1.4/1.6 to 1.8/2.0 engines. I would imagine this is the case or if they are all the same as the exhaust manifolds are all at the back on mk2 petrols. I can't imagine any gain at all to be honest
  8. It just gets lower and lower, you will be underground soon mate :lol: Not sure if the finis code for the washer jet covers is right as the ST ones are more of a trapezoid shape than thoe ones Dave/Jamz have fitted which come with Xenons on the rest of the range. Afaik Piper are the only replica manufacturer for exhausts as the ST does not have a spare wheel well, which is where the OEM backbox sits.
  9. Almost sounds like lacquer overspray for it to keep reoccuring :?
  10. My 2.0 went back to Ford for respray work 3 times, just badger them until they sort it out
  11. It's electric assisted PAS, it has both systems
  12. Yours couldn't be any less standard James :lol:
  13. Only cars which are fitted with Xenon lights from the factory are required to be self levelling and have washer jets. However, retro-fitting OEM Xenons or a HID kit without the self levelling and washer jets is highly frowned upon although not actually illegal. What is all this talk of Xeon? Are you running Intel processing units as headlights? :lol:
  14. There is one colour that is very similar to a green toothpaste Sensodyne used (may still do) have out which I loved the taste of. whizzpopper have a similar colour out. However it only seems to be on the very basic models. Would look quality ST kitted up
  15. Do a search on Kevin Davies, he had quite a lot of bother with his old car
  16. They all feel too light imo, and the way the sport mode artifically weights up during corners feels totally unnatural. Spoils the whole driving feel of the mk2 imo
  17. the mirros don't suit the car at all. you hav to remeber that the style is the very base model, thought they would have chucked some titaniums into dealers to show it off... i do prefer it over the mk2 though. mk1.5 still remains the daddy 8)
  18. i think some dopey person stuck the needle on wrong
  19. indeed, my 2.0 mk1 gets better mpg than the 1.8 cmax i had!
  20. i may have a look on friday for you mikey.... maybe the titanium has them on
