good knows what they were thinking when they designed those rear light?? (no offence to anyone with new focus) my mate had one as a courtesy car and i didnt like it, the interior looks weird with the vertical vents, just looks like the fiesta... not a big fan. just my opinion oviously... anyone else feel the same lol

you could always buy the body kit from the new Zs and fit it to your existing model mate,
save you some money on interest rates etc.

Not sure if having the body kit will compensate for a far basic interior to my current car ?
Stoney871
Front and sides ok, inside like a beefed up fiesta-- all goes a bit astra at the back though.
Not too struck at the moment but then again the MK2 wasn't my cup of tea when first saw them but they grew on me.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

quality car dont get me wrong but i think no matter what we get we will always want better haha that new ZS could do with bigger wheels any ideas what size they are?? and i would have thought they would come with rear privacy glass as standard??

ok correct me if im wrong and i dont mind if i am :lol: ill sleep easy either way.
the scooby is actualy ivory so the white is not the same colour in actual person


but the rear tail lights are of similar design,
the rear red reflectors on the bottom of the bumper are similar
aerial location and style of aerial are similar
position and oval badge design are similar
rear defuser on the bumpers are similar
rear tear windows are similar
rear wiper sitting on the right side of window similar
alloy wheel design similar
door handle design similar

and i totally agree with you on the front of the scooby is completly different compared to the focus,
but in my opinion two designers worked on the mk3 focus and never met each other,
one designed the rear and then left ford and got a job with subaru
and the guy that designed the front took off where the first guy finished then got promoted to manager ;)

that my opinion anyway but each to their own.

What ?? :o
im not arguing with you mate im just writing my opinion on the car,
i dont intend to upset anyone i mean the mazda 121 and the fiesta were the same too, its ok like

im not saying its a bad car im just saying i think is looks similar and subaru arent a bad car neither but one things for sure it dont sound like a subaru

im sincerly sorry if i have upset anyone with my opinions because it was not my intention to do so, ;)

don't like the tail lights extending down the side of the car at all, looks very odd.
I also think it looks somewhat like and old civic to a certain extent, which I wouldn't be mad about. That said, it's a nice car
tomo2001
Wickwick, I'm sure you'd regret swapping the current car for the ZS. As you said it might not be special enough, the interior looks like that from a car at the other end of the range to yours.

Wait for the ST if you want something that looks the bees knees.

Hi, no m8 I owe you an apology, I kinda lost my bedside manner there and I'm sorry for that. I guess, seeing as the Focus is probably, at the moment, the best of it's class http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/carreviews/grouptests/276334/ford_focus_zetec_s_vs_rivals.html then we should be pleased that Ford once again has produced a fantastic car and not get involved in petty squabbles about minor details :D

ZS , is a big improvement on the current styling of the Mk3 , the rear diffuser covers the bottom of the rear bumper which to me seemed very lazy of Ford.

Agree with Wickwick , don't change what you have for the ZS , Stlying is good but the Internals of the ZS are weak , i'm not sure of the price but it will be around the same sort of price as the Titanium and its not worth losing the spec for some bumper trim.

Lenny has the right idea and buy the kit.

The wheels remind me of the Ghia , and if they are the standard ZS wheels they are using then that will put people off .

On the whole i could have waited for the MK3 but choose the Mk2.5 , Mk3 is a great car but i much prefer the Mk2.5 at the moment.

When they release the MK3.5 face lift , then maybe i will look at it again but for now the rear end just kill's it for me , they need to go back to a longer rear cluster and take out that step.

So yes the ZS does look very nice

What they should do is release a ZS upgrade package as an option.

I have seen a New Focus with the DRL's , they are nice but a little to close together for my liking they should have gone a similar direction in position as the Fiesta DRL's in my opinion.

I like the look of the ZS but im still not sure on the rear lights, as someone mentioned it does look a bit like the civic type R at the back but thats not a bad thing.

In terms of my preference of style at present its in this order

1. mk 3 ZS apart from the lights (based only on pictures)
2. mk 2.5 like the shape and the facelift and the clear coded rear light strips and looks great in silver and black
3. mk 3 again don't like the rear lights and to much grill going on at the front
