I am also thinking about it too. The car looks abit narrow and tall. I need a new suspension system and maybe body widening kit. I think it is a bit too early and there may not be any new products around yet. Some Konis would be nice.

you'll not have a warranty if you do all that rubbish to the car though, plus doesnt it make your insurance loads more where you are? it does here, and if you dont tell the insurance company you don't get covered.

I know what you mean. Well for us in Singapore we need to ensure our cars meet road regulations or the whole car gets impounded or something. It's not the most sensible thing to do, I do fully agree with that! :unsure:

you know what, i saw on a Dutch accessories catalog that Kia also has the lowering springs. That sideskirt there is most definitely from Kia. Its really early days if you're talking about tuning parts man. tho you can start putting on some Focus headlamps in the garage! heh heh. :D

hi just done 500 miles its so smooth just cant feel the change kick down is smooth and pulls very well it does feel tight but when its run in 1000 to 1500 miles should do the trick there is no noise from the box but u know the engine is working but its a 1.1 so its bound to ,but above 40 mph it seems to all fall into place 80 -85 mph on the motorway no problem it feels like an aston martin my wife luvs the car too so i am back to my escort cabro 1990. :D

You sure about the aSTON mARTIN part ...? :lol: I've only driven the manual version before, and just once, at the showroom, and I thought that was more like a new and improved Abarth Fiat 500. heh heh.
