Rather than hijacking everyone elses thread, I guess I should start my own...
Bought this last year in March after going through a bad patch on cars. Had a black Mondeo that let in water like a sieve, sadly didn't let it out in the same fashion, just rotted the floor through. Then had a Ford Cougar that loved blowing the electrics up with a dodgy alternator.
After a bit of chin scratching and a mate next door at work turning up with a 10 plate Titanium, I club some savings together a got an '08 Zetec in Vision blue. Took a bit of searching to find my exact spec, I wanted the climate for the heated screens and the bluetooth. As it turns out an 08 plate with Bluetooth wasn't common.
The day I got her -Took her to the local dogging spot for some photos!
Hadn't really done much to her since then till now due to money issues and buying a second car. The end of last year before Christmas saw me hitting a deer, which wrecked the air con condensor, radiator, grill and bits.
Then getting back on here I've ended up spending far too many ways to lessen my back balance. I had always said I'd do some modding, but not for a year or too.
Anyway, to date:
- Zetec S Lower grill, even though I only just replaced the standard Zetec one.
- ST Upper grill - took on the daring bonnet lock and seem to have won.
- Clear fog light - Just waiting on my Cree bulb to get under there and fit it.
- Wind deflectors
- Mist jets
- FOC Stickers
- Pistonhead stickers!
Things on order or for the future:
- Colour coded front lip
- Gloss or Colour coded fog surrounds
- Rear windows tinted
- ST or the really nice Zetec Alloys
- Bonnet struts
- Working on getting the skirts and bumper lips, but still not 100%
Car as it is now (no real difference apart from the front) and it being dirty
Only thing that concerns me at the moment is the fuel consumption. Allowing for the cold weather I can understand it decreases some what. But at the minute I can't really get any better than 28 MPG. Which is meaning I'm filling up at about 340-350 miles. Compared to last year during the summer I was getting around 420 miles to a tank. Should I investigate, or is this farily normal for a 1.8 petrol? My commute is pretty rubbish I must admit.
