Hello! I would just like to introduce my 2016 Ford Fiesta, Paquito. He’s a 4 cylinder 1.6L engine and very useful in everyday driving. I don’t know a whole lot about cars yet or even about forums but I’d like to document the changes to my Fiesta as I get around to them! Right now nothing has been added on or modified but some of my future hopes are to replace the missing left rear reflector, swap out the halogens for some brighter ones, do some interior vinyl wrap accents, mudflaps, and possibly even some bigger modifications such as a nice exhaust kit, and the list goes on! If anyone has any cool ideas or suggestions let me know because I have a blank slate and am open to anything! AC8F3C4D-9B61-4982-B476-5CA857975F22.jpeg

Lil update on Paquito: I got new tires put on after he was starting to wobble when driving and the steering wheel would shake. No more wobbles or shaking and rides very smooth now. I also have electric blue carbon fiber vinyl for the interior trim and hot pink LED’s for the dome lights on the way; so more updates will be coming when I get around to doing those little projects :]

Just updating the recent progress on Paquito: Started wrapping the interior trim of the car, starting with the air vents (actually I can thank my boyfriend for those) but the steering wheel trim and center console trim will be wrapped in the same blue carbon fiber vinyl very soon! I also switched the map lights and dome lights to some hot pink LEDs. It really is the little things that matter and I absolutely love the changes so far!

Welcome to the forum. All weather floor mats are always a good thing.
It's a lot easier to KEEP the carpeting in our cars clean than it is to GET it clean!

Yes! I’ve been looking into those a lot, especially since I’m driving my car 7 days a week; it’s just a matter of actually buying them. I really appreciate the suggestion and will definitely end up purchasing some!

I have had a good experience with the Husky brand of all weather floor mats. I have the factory accessory rubber mats too, but they don't hold the water away from the carpets like the Husky weather beater's do. I can't recall where I got them from (online), but I remember that they were much less expensive than the Weather tech liners.
The only thing that I altered was the rear mats came in one piece. I cut off the part that went over the center hump. It just made it easier to get the mats in and out when I clean the interior.
