There is absolutely no rattling coming from the skirts. It is screwed and stick with some sort of glue with the body.

The tail pipe is a just a aftermarket tail tip that costs 250 rupees. Ofcourse to fit that I had to cut the to a feet length and then you replace it with a straight pipe. This is because the end of the fiesta's exhaust pipe is curved downwards.

I got one exhaust tip fitted today in my fiesta silencer, but as you said, the tip is somewhat downwards, what is there for the 1.6S people, is it bend there as well, or is a straight silencer pipe just as you did, or the exhaust tip is a long one,
because of this curve, the exhaust tip is not too visible, which is somewhat defeating the purpose of installation and the shopkeeper told me that he did not have anything long than this one.

Suspension is not something I'm looking to do at the moment. The current ones do their job and the lack of curves on Chennai roads that require high cornering speeds don't add justice to the case.



Hey JK.. I was thinking about Kit Up, but in Chennai, I've got my car done at Hi Rev. He does the same job as Kit Up and has a really awesome garage.

But I like the body kit on the white Fiesta that I saw on the Kit Up website. But the general feedback that I got about body kits from people who have them is that they get chipped on speed breakers and then you'll have to replace the entire skirt.

I saw the 1.6s Petefied thread. The car looks good, but I'm really looking for performance on acceleration rather than stopping power and cornering abilities.

I already have a superchip, FFE, Cold Air induction. I'm thinking of a turbo charger in the next 6-8 months.

Also use "Multi Quote" option for quoting Multiple posts.
You can also remap your ECU & get better brakes with the rotors changed this might help you in pulling more power from that 101 BHP motor without any serious hardware modifiactions and on parallel good stopping power too but this is practical solutions needed in real life.

With projectors one of my known friend had done it in a single barrel and left the other barrel as stock but the results were not that great and rather was awful because of the light is not exactly right on the streets.

The exhaust on the 1.6S is completely different from the ones on the other Fiestas. There is no bend. It's just a single piece chrome exhaust with a big end can.

Your exhaust tip looks a lot more visible than before, but not as much as the one on the S.

@Pr_007, you have also gone for side skirts in your fiesta, could you please suggest that have you increased the tyre size so as to maintain the GC or installing side skirts in existing 1.6SXI with 14" alloy will not make a difference.

There will be no difference. I have answered your question in the other thread. Please read them.

It wont catch eyeballs, but boy oh boy will it get you giddy everytime you think of the performance on tap, or when you rocket ahead of some pimped out high-revvin' ricer at the redlights....

I wouldn't really advise this, if its a daily driver.
Fiesta already has good power, so why spend on increasing it ?? Infact most times you your Mileage will drop below desirable limits if done.
