Hey that's nice, apart from the obvious! ;) You have what IMO is one of the nicest, if not THE nicest steering wheel available to the Mk3 Fiesta too. Shiny bugger isn't it?! :D :aviator:

:) Good find!

Looks like you've got all the main bits covered in your future plans. The 'alloys' are certainly butters so anything will be an improvement on those!

It should have intermitant anyway, some ones probs changed the stalk assembly with a poverty spec one. It's usually push down.

Since its a 2i a decent proper full no holds bared service will be in order as it has no doubt had a few owners and ragged around.

In terms of asthetics I like to see the blue stripe back/ moulding at least. Car looks better with a line around it IMO.

Maybe a nice shinny SS stainless system too with a 4-2-1? :)

Best of luck with it all.

Definitely re-badge it, but I'm really not a fan of the XR blue stripe..I'd go with none or black I think.

This is what you should do:

- Check the work on the filler cap panel, waxoil etc where necessary.
- Fit smoked rear lights, burn lexarse ones.
- Fit newer style boot lid without recess line.
- Fit black, RS2000 15's.
- Fit colour coded mk3.5 mirrors.

This is not a guide, it is an order :)

looks very tidy, may a suggest a mk4/5 rear wiper arm, as it gives the back end a smoother look!
