  1. I bet I could start a YouTube show with all the videos I'm getting, a grumpy old !Removed! complaining about every other driver lol. I could earn a fortune!! seriously? I got censored for "f.art" lol.
  2. 2016-07-19 Ferrari 458 Spotted a Ferrari 458 (left hand drive) in Halifax.
  3. 2016-07-19 Pull Out Mondeo This guy half pulls out, I'm thinking he's letting me pass due to narrow passage, when I get closer and he fully pulls out, with nowhere to go.
  4. Hot summer morning traffic jam crashes, just a few miles apart between Leeds & Bradford. 2016-07-19 Crash 1 The usual traffic jam coming into Leeds when a line of cars bump each other, seems to be atleast 4 cars making contact. 2016-07-19 Crash 2 A car has gone right up the rear-end of another one, traffic was steadily crawling between Leeds & Bradford.
  5. 2016-07-16 Off-road Fool A 4x4 comes over a grassy area and onto the road, the idiot has to drive down the path to avoid running into me, I also noticed the driver had a phone to his head too, so driving one handed, the guy on bike gives them the finger, maybe they were looking for him or they knew each other, In my mirror I saw the 4x4 cut the bike off on a left turn.
  6. 2016-07-07-Blind Spot Truck Nearly taken out by a dump truck this morning. Says caution blind spot on the side, you'd think that works both ways. He got right up the rear end of the car in front, I knew he was going to do it. I stayed back from the car as i was expecting that to cut in, it always happens there.
  7. You could be right, I previously thought all Zetec's had a sporty suspension, mine says Handling Suspension With Standard Rear Shock Absorbers 17" Alloy Wheel Style 2 205/50R 17 89W BSW Tyres Locking Wheel Nuts With Handling Suspension With Alloy Hand Brake Cover
  8. I've got a 1.6 petrol 09 Zetec S, all the main differences are on outside compared to a standard Zetec, The 1.6 (Ti-VCT) 115bhp engine is the only one that is sightly more than standard (100bhp), all other engines are the same as other models. Interestingly you were more likely to find the 115bhp engine in the older MK2 models, but it only went in the Zetec S on the MK2.5's. The only Zetec S detailing inside is the aluminium sports pedals and silver handbrake, any other spec will be buyer selected options. I was quite disappointed with the bog standard look inside, I bought a second hand Ford/Sony Stereo off eBay for £100 and a Silver 'Fiesta' Gear Knob. I also had to buy a new set of the Aluminium Pedals as I was missing the brake/clutch ones (I'm 3rd owner). If you want extras then you'll want the Titanium, I'm happy with my Zetec S as I'm not bothered for all the gadgets, and I get a better feeling driving in something that looks so much better lol.

  10. 2016-06-21 HGV vs Chicane There's plenty of signs about this road, but there's always HGV's coming down the wrong way, First time I've seen a HGV actually go through the chicane though, explains all the marks on it lol.
  11. 2016-06-18 Red Arrows Nice to see the Red Arrows fly past on my way home from Cornwall, Also nice to see another Focus Zetec S in the left lane too lol.
  12. 2016-06-18 Blind Knob & Vintage Car Idiot just pulls out without looking or indicating, (PL plate, left hand drive) then there's a nice vintage car ahead lol.
  13. 2016-06-05 Local Pee Head Just a local out for a stroll
  14. 2016-06-04 Look Before You Leap This div in an Audi just pulls out on another car without looking or indicating, I wasn't going to risk it so let him out, usually if they don't indicate I don't give way.
  15. I saw something about this a few weeks ago, I'm all for having a re-branded Sporty range below the ST, but actually having 'ST' on a car with a 1 Litre engine just seems wrong, are people going to say they have an ST? "Oh it's only an ST-Line"........... Will be a common phrase in conversations soon. The Mk2 Focus Sport had no body-kit, just alloys and fogs (i think) and it looked rather drab and pointless. The Mk2.5 Focus Zetec S was much improved in the looks department, but it was really only a £1600 body kit option. The Mk3 Zetec S was finally a model in the range and not a simple kit option, but I do think 'Zetec S' need updating, dropping the 'Zetec' and just calling it 'S' or 'Sport' would have been enough. These cars will look great, and it's nice they are setting them apart from bog standard cars, But I fear the Insurance Companies will take advantage of how much more 'Sporty' they look and charge you more for it.
