Nice motor pal.

Looking very tidy!

I thought the Zetec S came with the ST spoiler as standard, and that one just has a standard mk2 spoiler?

Or did they only start getting the ST spoiler as standard with the facelift?

Aye, I hold a bit of contempt for people who think they can genuinely pass their car off as what they're advertising. Maybe to an idiot, but anybody remotely clued up on cars will spot it a mile away and you'll look a plonker.

Although I did laugh heartily when I came across a '97 Peugeot 106 in Glasgow with Lamborghini badges and a massive exhaust.

most cars are misbadged anyway the 100ps focus badged as a sport by ford my mk2 has the s badges as well as its a ti vct with a zetec s engine the only difference is cosmetic and if anyone truly knew there motors they would know a true zetec s refers to the mazda yamaha engine not the trim level of the car
