Berkshire Newbie On Mods

Hi there to all you fiesta owners. I have been reading most of the messages on this forum related to the fiesta mk6.

I have a Fiesta Zetec and would like to get modifying it. I have no knowledge of cars....soz.... so I have to pay for someone to do it for me!!.

I am considering buying some 17 in OZ Super Leggera to begin with. Or should I wait until i can get a bodykit sorted for my car.

I would also like to know the URL for SWA please.

If anyone can help or advise then that be cool.

Re: Berkshire Newbie On Mods

Hi mate, welcome!

You're from Reading....? Yes! Good to see another mk6 owner from Reading...there should be a Reading meet soon, your more than welcome to come along! But I could do the work for you and charge you aboutú10/hr labour charge, if you want for some stuff!
Firstly, I had 17's...the ST170's to be precise but I still felt they were too small for the arches, so i'm on the prowl for 18's now, seen a nice set of Toora's but still undecided. Anyway, 18's fit the arches, so if you going to buy Oz wheels then it sounds like you have some money aside so you can afford to go up to 18's! But Oz SL's or ST's look good on pretty much any car!
I would prob get the wheels sorted first mate, as some with bodykits (like mattmk6) find that their car is too low to the ground so need bigger wheels to compensate for this.
The Swa uniform resource locater (lol!) is .... oh woops i've forgotten it again, but there's nothing on that site apart from a contact page....someone else know what it is? If you're interested in any SWA parts, or kits give me a PM in about a week or two as i want one part (but not full kit) just like many others so hopefully will try and get a group of about 10-20 ppl buying to get a group discount on top of a Ukfn discount.

Smile Re: Berkshire Newbie On Mods

So you are saying that I can put 18" OZ on my fiesta with no problems. Went to Halfords today and they said 17" with Yoko/Faldo tyres option.

I am interested in a Reading Meet. Cool.

I am ready to get my OZ by the weekend.... undecided on 18" or 17".

Sure mate, that would be great as you know Stuart Wilson don't u? I was kinda hoping that if we got about 10-20 people together who wanted SWA parts and get a UKFN 10% discount, as well as get a big group discount. I'll probably talk to you the next time on msn about it but there are so many people wanting SWA parts and kits I reckon we could get a killer group discount. So if the next time you speak to Stuart if you could ask him what sorta discount we could get overall, like possibly about 40% each (!) as we would be giving his company like several k's worth of business!

Cheers Sim once again mate, Nick.

Yes mate...18's go on no probs with Eibach lowering springs. That's what i'm getting...had 17's but decided they were too small, so getting 18's.

Word of warning though mate, based on personal experience and many others Halfords up and down the country seem to be monkeys, so be careful what you hear from some places, although some Halfords stores are good though.
Get the 18's mate...bit more pricey but look much better!
Good to hear....there's quite a few mk6's from Reading and surrounding areas now, and there should be a UKFN meet with UKFN members in Reading soon, some nice Fez's popping up in Reading now! lol

Cool, can't swait to see them. they should look good!
But if you ordered them from Halfords double check they are 100% correct what you ordered, as i know a tonne of people who have sufferef the 'Halford's Experience'!
Like Sim says, defin need to lower mate, otherwise it will look like a tractor!
