Welcome!

Builds & Showroom section is best for an ongoing Blog/pictures/chat on your car.

Tech. sections for Zetec performance (engine), Brakes, Chassis & Suspension for handling may be the most useful for info..

MkI section here is more for General Mods & chat, separate MkI section for Interior Mods.

the stock size is best for the 15" wheels. A cheap decent tire is the BFG GForce Sport Comp II A/S.

Thanks for the info on tires fellas! Where do you guys buy yours at I'll probably go with the BFG GForce Sport Comp II A/S just cause they are a little cheaper. I have tire barn here in Southern Indiana Bloomington if anyone is familiar. Today I'm going to try to paint my spoiler because all the clear coat came off. I'm thinking black or if I can find a really dark blue I would consider that too. If I actually get to it today I'll post some pics of what I used and how it's going. Never done paint before so don't laugh too hard how it turns out haha :)
