  1. Hi all, I've been a member for years now but have mainly just read in the background so this is my first proper post so bare with me! I've had a Zetec S for a few years now and have just paid the balloon payment on the finance and now I own the car I've started to do a few small scale mods and I'm after some options/ideas on what to do next? Budget is not too high at the moment so I'm looking for low ish cost ideas. This is what I've done so far... Rear Number Plate LEDS, Interior LEDS, Limo Tinted Rear Windows, SicoBoost Induction Kit, Wind Deflectors, S Badges front/back. The advice I need is this (apologies for my lack of knowledge here I'm new to this haha) ... I've put a SiCoBoost Induction Kit on the car; http://www.sico-developments.co.uk/products/fiesta-mk7-zetec-s-1-0-sico-boost-induction-kit?variant=798012837 and I'm considering getting this secondary hose; (about £90 when you add the VAT, hose clips and delivery) https://www.mountunestore.com/collections/mk7-fiesta-1-0t/products/fiesta-b299fox-high-flow-secondary-induction-hose?variant=902990093 what kind of difference do you think I will see if I add this to the engine now that I've got the Sico Boost kit in there too, and would I get even more of the induction WOOTSHHH sound haha? or would it make no difference? Also does anyone know where I can get Black Ford Badges with White font please, I can't seem to find them anywhere online that are in stock? Opinions/help/advice would be very much appreciated! Thank you!
  2. I've found the complete opposite, my 13 plate Fiesta was fine, now my 14 plate Zetec S is horrendous. And it's a shame as every other aspect of the car I absolutely love! Never had a problem with SYNC before but my 14 plate rarely understands me, and is constantly giving "unknown artist" "unknown playlist" when using my ipod which never happened before!
  3. Hi all! Just had a call from the dealer and my ZS is ready to collect tomorrow! Total time from order, built and collection tomorrow will be 7 weeks which I think is excellent! Really looking forward to this! Unfortunately tho I'm collecting it from a dealers on a busy high street in rush hour so my first drive will mostly be stuck in traffic! Any tips for the run in period? And also what are the Sports Seats and Suspension like in comparison to the standard Zetec as I never actually test drove one? Will be uploading some pictures tomorrow night after I've took it for a proper spin!
  4. Hi all, Ordered a Zetec S 1.0 125 about 6 weeks ago, eta 19th April, salesman goes on holiday Wednesday but he's said the car could arrive today and if it does I can have it tomorrow!!! The wait has been killing me but these last few days have been even worse! Waiting for a phonecall now to find out if its here!
  5. Thanks for the replies all! Seems like its something to have a little play with, can't complain with an extra gadget! Probably won't be using it much myself as my commute to work consists of 3 miles pure national speed limit country lanes! Another reason I decided to upgrade to a ZS :) Sent from my Nexus 7 using Ford OC mobile app
  6. Is this feature a help or does it get annoying? I ordered a Zetec S without really looking at one so I'm still finding out loads of the little things which come with it :)
  7. Hi all, Just wondering if all the 1.0L 125Bhp Zetec S's come with the Stop/Start technology? And what this actually does as I was looking on the Ford site and you can't configure a Fiesta Zetec S without it anymore? Thanks!
  8. Zetec S 125 White Ordered 3/3/14 Build 27/3/14 ETA 19/4/14 No optional extras. The wait is absolutely killing me! From reading a few things on here tho, how common is it that they delay the cars? Sent from my Nexus 7 using Ford OC mobile app
  9. Found it, 51% It was under the ecomode thing. Swear that is not always there so whoever said it only shows up over 50% is right :-) Trading the car in soon and was just curious to what the figure would be.
  10. Hi all, This might be a stupid question but I have a MK7.5 Zetec and I remember when I first got the car I was able to see the amount of cold starts as a percentage. But I have tried to view this recently and I cant for the life of me find where it was! Anyone know what I'm talking about? This is probably me just being an idiot lol! Thanks!
  11. At least we get them just before the summer! :)
  12. Well I think the first thing im going to do is something small and simple, just get some gel overlays for the front and back ford badges. White ford font but cant decide what background colour, I think red would look nice on a white car but black would also match the grill and look awesome!
  13. Thanks! Yeah I'm aware of how useful and practical these cars are as im coming straight from a 13 plate standard Zetec, it's the engine and the looks im going for as I think the Zetec S looks incredible! I got my Zetec the day after my 19th Birthday which was lucky timing lol, I pay £75 per month to insure it and they only want an extra 6 quid to insure the ZS. That's with 1 years named experience and 1 years full policy holder no claims, im 20 in 3 months so I consider these to be really good prices! :) And as for modifications, it really depends on what the dealer will let me change as im on the ford options finance plan. Will upload some pictures once I have it, keep meaning to get one of my current car but I haven't had chance yet...
  14. No options, just Frozen White paint. Would have had privacy glass and sat nav if I thought I could afford to keep the car at the end of the contract :)
  15. Also got my dates today for anyone else ordering who might be wondering about time frames ect; Ordered over the phone on 03/03/14 Build Date 27/03/14 ETA 19/04/14 I'm pretty chuffed with that! :)
