Default fiesta mk6 body styling

Am going to buy a mk6 fiesta but dont really like the way some of the things look on it but its at good price excellent mileage and o7 model
The things that am going to replace are the front rear lights see below now will this a complete mission or is it just simply taking out out ones replacing new ones like lexus style below
The fiesta finnesse chromed letter if they come off the rear will it leave adhesive or holes for the former how can get that out and the latter then wont attempt it.
The exhaust is there a way to get a bored out sound out of the exhaust even no its a standard exhaust seen some sort of thing can put in the exhaust which give it a deep bored out throaty sound? Failing that will a decent back box magnex etc make it sound any good even no its a 1.25 standard engine no mods.
The window tints will this be a mission if there cut to size fitting them rear windows side and back limo black, what is the secret as last time they bubbled over and looked ****.
Steering wheel is this really hard if take out old one and replace with new one with the right boss. Have a socket set up to 22mm will that do the job.
Mirrors is this hard to do if the mirrors are electric and if so what is the best type to go for something nice m3's etc black or carbon fibre replicas.
That is it small touches but eventually it will be black alloys so it will be red and black.
If can have some sort of help thanks.

Cool, hope you get the price you want.

Unless you are paying good money, generally the cheapy replacement headlamps don't fit correctly, end up breaking easily, don't look right, or fog over on the inside.

The fiesta finnesse chromed letter if they come off the rear will it leave adhesive or holes for the former how can get that out and the latter then wont attempt it.

No idea

The exhaust is there a way to get a bored out sound out of the exhaust even no its a standard exhaust seen some sort of thing can put in the exhaust which give it a deep bored out throaty sound? Failing that will a decent back box magnex etc make it sound any good even no its a 1.25 standard engine no mods.

There are a lot of different exhausts out there that can improve the exhaust note, but let me tell you from experience, a smaller motor is just not going to have the throaty growl that a V8 has, generally they sound more like a very angry mosquito

The window tints will this be a mission if there cut to size fitting them rear windows side and back limo black, what is the secret as last time they bubbled over and looked ****.

Don't ever do your own tinting. Have a professional do it, one with a lifetime warranty on the work. Meaning, take it to a reputable shop that will be around in five years to back up their work if something goes wrong

Steering wheel is this really hard if take out old one and replace with new one with the right boss. Have a socket set up to 22mm will that do the job.

Most steering wheels require that you have a puller. Basically the puller has two bolts that screw into the steering wheel itself then a center bolt that pushes against the steering column to allow you to slide the steering wheel off. You are not very likely to get the steering wheel off any other way. A lot of times local parts stores will have kits you can rent to take care of this.

Mirrors is this hard to do if the mirrors are electric and if so what is the best type to go for something nice m3's etc black or carbon fibre replicas.

This is all based on personal preference, get whatever you think looks the best.

That is it small touches but eventually it will be black alloys so it will be red and black.

Sounds good


If can have some sort of help thanks.

Default K and n

Will the exhaust still sound like that if a k and n air filter is added on normally that makes it sound slightly more bored out, deeper not so tinny.
Also wont be getting other lights thanks.

I've got a V6 3.8L (3800) with a BBK CAI (with a K&N filter) and a FLowmaster exhaust, and it still sounds like a pissed off horsefly (an upgrade from the angry mosquito ). An aftermarket intake will increase power, and although it will slightly deepen the sound, the sound different won't be particularly noticable.
