Oliverb
Very smart !! How much more have you got planned! you are in the exactly the same boat as me on this, even the same car and colour :-P you just have a push start and I don't :-( !!!

How many LEDs are on the reg plate ones please (the brighter one) ??

Get some DRL fog lights..... These are the ones I am getting - http://item.mobileweb.ebay.co.uk/viewitem?itemId=140904941242&index=5&nav=WATCHING&nid=88580956952

Looking good yunni , are you pleased with it? , what other plans do you have for it?

yes mate, its a shame i didnt realize these were phase 1 st225 & not phase 2,as i bought these way before xmas,as they were cheap & locally,my future plans are
powerfold mirrors,as you can see already bought for £65 each brand new off ebay plus post,
st225 spoiler,just waiting for my colour ,nearly bought it,but outbidded by 2 pounds lol,
rear discs conversion,as its drums at the moment
Eibach springs to make car sit better, even with 18's its like on stilts.
twin reverse mod, easy as i did on my mk1.5.
DRL'S
maybe zetec-s rear diffuser if it fits on stock bumper
St225 led rear lights ,the genuine ford ones.
interior lights are sorted , now all leds.
if i can find st3 recaro leather , but that could be hard & costly,

the diffuser does sit over the existing bumper. 
however if you get it from ebay be careful. i nearly fell into the trap of getting the one that is slightly smaller and you was to get the zetec s body kit  in future it wouldnt match up right, you would need to buy the one that has the rear skirt attached . just wanted to make you aware. NOT this one - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-FOCUS-ZETEC-S-5DR-08-11-REAR-BUMPER-SKIRT-LIP-SPOILER-TRIM-ST-RS-SL-/221209428947?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item33811c03d3 
look at last pic on description you will see what i mean...
if you knew already sorry ....

i was looking at that one from the same seller & thought the bumper is different as it has a lip & not flush like the stock one.but thanks for early warning, i am weary before i buy, i generally ask tech gurus on say here,ffoc focusowners etc.so can you tell me which one would fit on stock bumper with hardly any modifications?

yunii

I am the same!!! Items sit in my watch list for about a month before I go for them lol!
I haven't found the rear lip seperatly on eBay how we would need it... However I am just going to buy the full zetec s body kit all at once save more , and doing this I know I will get the rear diffuser I need... Did you just want the diffuser , I could possibly get you a link but you are looking at around 150 - 200! Another reason also why I am getting the whole kit is because the diffuser we need should come attached to the rear skirt (thats why ones you have seen look flush ) and would look odd without the rest of the kit...
Oliverb

full kit , this comes with the difuser we need !! annoying because most sellers use the same pictures . but i spoke to them and its what we are after - (they may sell rear seperatly if you ask them) - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/121093356520?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649 

and here is the diffuser on its own sorry little bit more pricey than i though - http://www.fordonlineparts.co.uk/product/Ford_Focus_Bumper_skirt%2C_rear%2C_%28%2B%7C-_PDS%29%2C_3%7C5dr_-_2008_-_2011_-_1517906_F1517906-156 
do you see what i mean about the rear skirt attatched.

the kits fibreglass though, personally i wouldnt touch it mate

Yeah I just saw in another topic :-(
What's the reason for that then, just out of interest....
Brigante

Fibreglass copies in general tend to be very poor quality, dont have proper mounting holes n dont line up properly, require a lot of modification trimming n sanding etc and tend to snap or crack easily

nowhere near the quality you'd get from buying genuine and usually not worth the hassle

this is why they so cheap lol
Stoney871

Agree with Charlie, fibreglass parts tend to be cast from moulds made from original parts therefore any inaccuracies of the mould translate to the castings.

There's a Polish seller on eBay that sells cast parts and the quality and fit is apparently shocking.

just fitted this, had to modify the switch, as the plug wont fit on this switch ,so i swapped over the circuit & rubber etc

still to do a bit for the powerfold mirrors, this switch came from japan & cost me £45

Call me a hypocritical Turd; but 45pounds for a switch is muchos expensive,
Does itvlight up red? Because that feature alone I would value at 15pounds

Call me a hypocritical Turd; but 45pounds for a switch is muchos expensive,
Does itvlight up red? Because that feature alone I would value at 15pounds365

this switch is essential for controlling the powerfold mirrors,so thats why i bought it,seen as its japan only feature & ford did optional extra on some titanium-x models,the plug on the switch loom on car is different to the newly acquired & fitted switch,so had to swap casing over ,so it fits the loom plug, as for powerfold mirrors ,they generally cost around £180 each, so i got an absolute bargain paying onlt £65 each,& they're brand new genuine ford ones. a rare find on ebay, you could say pot luck

yunii

usually on titanium or even the ST, you have the interior alarm scan  delete button which the above had been replaced by, as this is combination of the two on one switch.

next powerfold mirrors mod. btw LENNY can you paste a pic of your zetec-s pedals as i fitted the brake/clutch throttle pedal, but still to fit the foot rest plate, i'd like a close shot of the foot rest ,its position.

I've built my ZetecS mate,
I don't have the pedals yet but they are on my list for completion,
If any factory built ZetecS owners are reading could they please post an image of your drivers footwell?
Focus-Jonny
Here you go!



With mat unfortunately half of foot rest gets covered

Focus-Jonny
If you could re-drill the lower mounting hole further on up the foot rest and place a spacer in you could effectively slide the top of your mat under the plate so its always on show!

Focus-Jonny
Very good mate! Did you fit the foot rest lower down than the factory position? Looks alot more accessible/useable
yunii
No mate, I trimmed the mat to perfect fit so it doesn't look tacky.also I didn't drill as the kit comes with a srew in plug tha you push in a already poked hole made by a pointed screwdriver or similar.
