the zetec s is just a standard zetec with the usual sport trim ie sports suspension and seats also the bodykit the s badge should be on the front fender only
Willy
[size=4][font="Comic Sans MS"]Thanks for your reply.

I saw one the other day and it had no ZETEC badge on the back either, only the 1.6.

I may sound strange but I would like to advertise that fact that I would be driving a zetec S (poor mans ST)

I may mention this to the dealer next week and see if they will apply the badges for free.[/font][/size]

hi mate, is the focus brand new or pre-owned i de-badged my mk1 focus someone may have done this to yours it doesnt damadge the car in any way if done properly was just an idea. hope it helps
Willy
[font="Comic Sans MS"][size=4]The car is New and the chap that owns it is a ford salesman, i asked him about it but he said that's how it came.

I know it sounds petty but I like the look of the S logo but dont want to spend £10 doing it.[/size][/font]
ford focus edge
£10 pound for something that should of already been there! gota love ford dealers lol dont know what to say then mate its your call personally i like the smooth de-badged look but its a taste thing
Willy

Hi mate the first batch we got through a while ago had no S badges on at all but the rest are coming through with them on. The location is on the front Wing low down from wing mirror near indicator. Also says Zetec S on back
gerz1873
does anyone know where i can buy a s badge
Willy
Try ebay or your local dealer, your looking at around £10 - £12

I had the same problem with my new Zetec S I bought in February.
The Ford Dealership I bought it from ordered up 3 for me, fixed them, and charged back Ford...... :)

I'm picking mine up this week, and as you say it has no badges just 1.8 on the rear. Would be good to get hold of some. Also with this one being registered early 2009 it does not have the starter button is this correct?

My dads mondeo has ZETEC S on the back and so does the Fiesta so i dont see why the focus wouldnt? its better than the standard Zetec with the big alloys etc and sporty looks so i would want the "S" on the back aswell so people know im driving the next model up :D
Have to say i only like black cars but that Blue is really nice ;) . Stand out loads.

It looks similar to the S on a focus S max. Its good to be picky about details like this because people buying the car from you in future might want the same thing.

i was told by a mate who has a mate who works for ford the reason theres no s badge is that they fetch such high prices for a badge that they were forever getting nicked think about it 10 quid on ebay each you whip 6 or 7 each time off the new cars on the forecourt thats a fair bit of cash ide leave it off as it wont stay on long my mate had his nicked in asda car park in the afternoon on a busy day money wasted to be honest

My other ride is a Boxster S, I don't use the S badge so you can have it if you want, not sure if it increases performance though.
bottletree
not sure if it increases performance though. :lol: :lol: :rolleyes:
Willy
I pop into the dealer last week for some bits and saw a new 2010 Zetec S (1.8) and it had no S badges, asked the dealer chap and was told that they were droping the S badges on that model.

Sorted my badges out for about £12 and looks good now.

As you can see I have made a few mods (3 in total) can you see what they are?

Get your S badges from ebay or your dealer, not much difference in price, if your in with your dealer then you may get your badge at trade price (no VAT) but dont forget to smile at the same time ;)

License plate not as standard and you have moved the word 'zetec' over to fit in the S badge?

I have a 59 zetec S and my dad has a 10 zetec S. Mine came with the S badges on the side but not on the back and my dads came with no S badges. I got two S badges from Jennings Ford free of charge, one to go on the back of mine and the other to go on the back of my dads.

Edit

You also have tints? They dont come as standard on the zetec S (or they didn't)Unless you get the sports pack which gives you different and bigger alloys and privacy glass.
Willy
Yer got the sports pack but didn't get the wheels as the 1.6 :( doesn't have a wheel upgrade.

Still that third mod to find!
ford focus edge
alright ive studied the pics to the extent my eyes hurt i need a hint!
Willy
If I get you a side shot then that may help

Coloured brake calipers?
Willy
[size="6"]He you go the final clue, forget the wheels as this was taken to see what it would look like and personally I didn't want the focus looking to much like an ST, does look good though :D [/size]

now less than a fiver for the badges http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/FORD-FIESTA-FOCUS-ZETEC-S-BADGE-SPORT-/150466355581?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item23087e617d
Willy
I had 2 colors in mind the Ocean or Vision blue and decided on Vision and glad I did.

The only disappointment was the not getting the wheel upgrade so stuck with the 17"

Where did you get your tailpipe from? Looks well smart. Looking for something for mine.
Willy
Got the tailpipe done by my local powerflow stockest in Hove, have a look on the powerfow site for your nearest garage, cost me £170. Only had the rear section done so no change to the Cat/silencer.
Willy
[size="6"]For anyone thats interested the tail pipe was supplied by PowerFlow

[size="6"]Some nice looking zetec S's out there, at first glance they could be mistaken for ST's especially the white, Ocean Blue, Colorado Red and Sea Grey.

Shame about the lack of S badges from the factory, keep pushing them dealers to get your free S badges.

On a different note I changed my side stripes at the weekend from silver to white and just love it, what you all think?

£19.99 from DMB graphics and applied myself in about 30 minutes (very easy to do with tape and soapy water)[/size]

i just bought a focus 1.6s (09 plate). not only does it not have the s badge but did not have the zetec badge as well.

Only previous owner was the dealership who had it on loan to a football player for last season.

Also, where exactly is the s on the front fender supposed to be and should it be the same as the rear badge ???
Willy
Hi mate

I posted a pic of the rear badge placement earlier on so have a look at that and also include this pic of the side S badges.

All the S badges are the same size but make sure you get them the right way up as they look like they go on any way but you'll notice they are longer at the bottom, this picture was taken when I got the car and I noticed the S badges were upside down so removed them

Thanks willie

are the s badges supposed to be on both sides ?

I was thinking about getting them put on but, judging by what I have been reading, they are liable to get stolen!!!!
Willy
[size="6"]Yer thats right, both wings. As for as the back goes thats up to you, I removed the zetec badge from the back then placed a new one over to the left so I could fit the S badge in (like the old Fiesta Zetec S)

As far as getting them stolen I've never herd that but then again I live in an area filled with old ladies. I was going to replace the side badges but find it easier to clean without them.

Cant bet the Ocean Blue, looks good. I had a Fiesta in Ocean Blue :( still miss it.[/size]

I also as well as putting one on the back I put one each wing it look great well worth doing,
I see three zetec s in a ford garage the other day all had about 1000k on them and they had three like I have done,
well worth asking the saleman they will probley get you some I know a couple of people that have asked for them and been given them.
Disturbed elf
Hi thanks for that and btw ur cars look mint once mines ready will put pics up :) I think by the looks of things all the s badges are the same size thanks chaps :D
gazsutton
Mine had zetec with the s on the boot and 1.8 on the other side and the 2 S on the front wings. I Took the rear off tho and left the wing ones on
