Ford Fair 2018 - Review

If you want the expedited version:



HOT! AWESOME! (SERIOUSLY! HOTTTTTT)



If you want the AV version here is a video from MAP who joined us stand with their great demo car:







If you want more info then OK....



Lets start with Silverstone was HOT!!!  Now that's clear lets move on!.



Another awesome show, where we were joined by some great customers with their beautiful cars. Chris brought along his menacing black Dual Concave Velgen Split 5 beast, running full Steeda under carriage as well as some Anderson Composite goodies and Corsa exhaust.







The Steeda Mondeo Sport was brought along by the Williams's and looked as great as ever (Ah the memories! What a GREAT car!), which showed off the 20" OZ Racing Leggera HLTs, Paul brought along his Velgen Classic 5 equipped Focus RS in his Gulf homage livery which looked cracking and features a Milltek exhaust system as well as a variety of other choice parts, the Steeda Q500, fresh from its round of amazing reviews was showing it's stuff and Motorsport and Performance also showed their cracking demo car, also wearing Velgen vmb5s in bronze and of course with a comprehensive array of Steeda parts making it drive as good as it looked. 











We welcomed many of our great customers on stand during the day and were also joined by the team from Hendy Performance, the guys from HP Tuners, Jamie, the Editor of Fast Ford and many more as well as Shannon who was a great helping keep things going!



Steeda Robbie and the Hendy Team





The stand featured a display of Velgen wheels, and also Sparco wheels, which are the perfect choice for the Fiesta and Focus owner looking to step up their style and performance game! Don't forget to match those wheels with great tures from our partner Michelin Tyres.



Ford showed off the new Bullitt Mustang on its stand, which also involved a contraption allowing people to throw themselves off a cliff? Perhaps Ford was preparing people for Brexit?

Either way count me out.. No cliff diving for me! Not with my back...











More importantly Ford were also kind enough to lend us their supercharged demo Mustang, which took pride of place int eh centre of the stand. Their GT is also equipped with Velgen 20" Split 5s clad in Michelins of course as well as some choice Steeda mods on the IRS and a full pack of Ford Performance upgrades. Unfortunately we had to give it back to them at the end of the day,as the car is frankly gorgeous! Check out the vid we made with her on one of our Steeda Driving Days!













Steeda Robbie & John sit down and try to work out how to ration the remaining water....... Before panic ensues!

Remember we'll see you there in 2019, and dont forget the sunscreen...

Steeda Driving Experience 3 - May 11th 2018

Wow what a day. Attendees were few this time but they were top class! We wanted to keep numbers down and focus on media creation and content as were filming and doing photography a well as some testing of our own. This was the opposite to our previous SMUK day earlier in the year which was packed out!!

Read the report SMUK DAY HERE

One of the vehicles we were filming was the Ford UK Heritage Centre Mustang, which is not only Supercharged to 670 HP but also Steeda equipped and now shod with gorgeous gunmetal Velgen Split 5 wheels. It looked stunning!





Ford were kind enough to support the day by also bringing along their Ford Performance equipped car AND a new MY 18 Mustang for us to take a look at and test drive on the track too! Great stuff and a real privilege. Read our MY 18 Launch Report HERE...

Need less to say Ford have done a great job!

Ford UK & Steeda Line up at Steeda Driving Experience 3

Pete from Michelin was also kind enough to come down, and of course one of the many "upgrades" on the new MY18 Mustang is the fact it is now shod with Michelins from the get go. You're welcome! We at Steeda know that for optimum performance, your need optimal tyres, and that is what Michelin give us.
Phenomenal rear grip, which lasts right to the bottom of the tread. not to mention that oh so sexy Velvet Touch finish!



Customer Nick brought his yellow fully Steeda loaded GT which looked great and he continued to regain his driving confidence, and David and his partner Anna ran a ding dong competition in their fairly stock GT. However stay tuned as big things are coming for this Mustang, with a full raft of modifications on the way, including some limited edition Velgens!



As we say on a Steeda Driving Experience Day: IF you're spinning , you're winning!




Bailey from Haynes Ford came along too, and was glad to get a chance in the new 2018 car too.




Dans S197 was looking killer.... Awesome pic courtesy of Terry Ffrench Graham photography!







And finally the day came to a halt while we were all privileged to watch an incredible display of acrobatics from the queen of the skies, an old WWII Reconnaissance Spitfire!

iNews- The Q500 finds another fan! + Q500 Dyno Run testing

A great review from iNews!



READ THE REVIEW HERE:


Highlights:



"It immediately feels more focused and connected, although the ride is also better at dealing with rough roads. Itís more incisive, has lots more grip, and the extra sharpness of the steering is also welcome."



"Chuck in an exhaust system thatís pure Bullitt and youíve a fully-honed sports car thatís a world away from a regular Mustang. It feels like Porscheís given it the once-over and perfected it into something more eager, agile and immediate, "









We also took the Q500 down to our Friends and approved Steeda installers Perfect Touch for a couple of dyno runs and have set up a

Steeda Driving Experience - SMUK Day! March 2018

Well another great Steeda Driving Experience completed, this time with our friends from Simply Mustangs UK, one of the UK's most dedicated "mixed ownership" Mustang clubs.

A whole herd of ponies were in attendance for our first 2018 Steeda Driving Experience, with a nice range of S550 and S197 Mustangs dominating the line up. There was also a fair amount of "whine up" too, as there were quite a few supercharged cars in attendance.

Steeda Driving Experience


The day started with our fast left hand bend, and people got stuck in with verve, and the numbers management went very well with everyone "doubling up" and swapping in and out of cars as passenger and driver for two totally different experiences.

Accelerating down the approach road provided a great example of why fitting a Steeda "Stop the Hop" pack is ESSENTIAL for any supercharged car, as a whipple charged car (who shall remain nameless) shot straight off the track onto the grass while attempting to launch. If that was on the road --> kerb impact --->big crash or shattered wheels potentially.

Of course just because they remain nameless doesn't mean the following picture is not them! It was a lovely car with a nice Whipple install done by GT101.

Where is my Stop the Hop pack

Once the bend antics were complete the cars split into 2 groups and 2 circuits were built up. The weather was perfect all day, and we can safely say a great time was had by all.

HERE ARE THE TIME SHEETS FOR THE DAY. PDF BECAUSE WE KNOW YOU WILL DOCTOR THEM HAHA! (CLICK TO DOWNLOAD)

The Steeda Q500 was on display (and we managed to sneak in a few goes at the end!) as well as displaying a selection of our favourite Mustang wheels by Velgen.

Big thanks to all who attended even to just come and hang out, and well done to Jason and the SMUK team who helped organise such a great turn out.

Happy New Year! The World Loves the Q500 Enforcer!

Well Steeda UK kicked off 2018 in great style with an amazing premier of the "Velgen Society UK" in a meet at the historic Bicester heritage centre.

We were blessed both with amazing sunny weather (in the midst of January greyness, mista nd rain!), and also a fabulous selection of cars, customers and dealers who had come along to support that day, and we were also very happy to host Scott the owner of Velgen wheels from Miami, and his legendary photographer and vidmaster, Franco.

MSN cars also attended, and threw up this great little article.

The attendees were lucky enough to grab some Velgen swag as well as bear witness to the glories of the brand new Velgen Forged ranged. Some people wept as their beauty was revealed... (and I am almost not exaggerating).

Velgen Forged Wheel Examples Revealed!






























They also got the first reveal of the completed Steeda Q500 Enforcer UK demo car

The Velgen meet was the curtain raiser event to the Performance Car Show at the Autosport International event at the NEC in Birmingham. 

We were soon set up and after an extremely tiring but fun 4 days we crawled home and flew home and were amazed by the incredibly positive reception we had received across the board both from the press and the general public.
