Thanks for the comments Guys!

I will get the mirrors colour coded when I get my side skirts (just the ones form the tickford body kit - i cant afford the whole kit just yet)


HSE2, Everything is fine with the car, no dramas. Just the high fuel consumption is a problem, other than that, she is sweet :) Thanks for asking. How is your XR going?

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
If you have high fuel consumption on an AU 6 cylinder.Check your spark plug gap. If you buy genuine plugs from ford, (which are nippon denso plugs in a ford box) the plugs to suit will be gapped at 1.0 mm. This is the same plug that is used from EB (i think) onwards.

The correct plug gap for an AU 6 is 1.3 mm.

This does not apply for gas cars though.

Check your gap and let me know how you go. I also have another little trick to test your fuel consumption easily to get a good reading.

Regards
