So, last weekend I got round to doing the first mod to the C4. After finding that I had the usual snapped front spring I decided to replace all four with Apex lowering springs.

Most difficult thing turned out to getting the wiper arms off, ended up having to use a puller.

Looking good, Iron Grey is a nice colour too!

To be honest, I didn't have a lot of love for the car when I first picked it up. Just a getting to work run about. It's starting to grow on me a little now though.

It's never going to be anything remotely like a performance hatch, but I can do a few little bits to make it nicer to drive. Next up, probably a remap but everything is going to be fairly subtle.

That said, I did find myself researching the hybrid turbos that some of the Ford lads are strapping to this engine the other day...
