YOU still have to be the name driver your parents are put on a secondary both my mum and dad use my car but i have to be the main driver otherwise the policy is as much use as a jonny with a hole in and trust me on this, the police will absoutly love you lol.

Dont think we're coming across at stereotypes, It's that it will benifit you if you are the main driver on the car. Also i can pressume that you are on the logbook as the owner? If so this wont match up right with the insurance if you are not the main driver. Also he is right in saying that police will love you if they pull you over as the named driver, EVEN if you religiously drive it less than your mum ( but seeing as its your car then will that be the case?) the police will love you for it!

Anyway yes they will fit it but be ready for expensive labour bills if you do!

Chanses are yeah just ring up your dealer and ask they'l be able to tell you each one does there own things the one i worked at would of sent the car off to have the stripes done and would of fitted the lowering springs where as others wouldant touch it.

Either way your going to get absoutly raped of your money and taking the car elsewhere is 10x clever ford are robbing !Removed! (sorry about the swear but its vital to stress the point) end of. lol

few points you mentioned here... insurance as a 17 year old... 1 fact tell you it all... 1.25 fiesta mk7 zetec... me as 1st driver -> 6K

and as for being pulled by police if your not first driver just make sure your story is spot on!!!

and as for the mods... with mine i done dead little things (except the DRL's!) i think little touches look the best, if you change too much then you could ruin the cars stock looks and fall into the 'chav' group :P

Guys to Clear things up

Learning on my mums insurance im 1200. Goes upto 1600 when i pass my test and im going to do my pass plus and it takes 400 off aviva.

As for police its not against the law to drive a car on you mums insurance. They cant prove you are driving it more than your mum.
And the police dont car. Unless you have a loud exhaust or you are speeding.


Im buying the racing stripes and side stripes for 90 from Dmb graphics.
And im getting them fitting from Aquorn signs in inverness. A professional graphics company.
Im getting the black ST mudflaps for 60 and my uncle will fit them.

Il get the windows tinted from highland windscreens for a few hundred.

And maybe even get these bad boys. http://www.wheelandt...x004-white.html


Im getting my car tomorro. Its just getting its MOT and service. 35000 miles only.

Erm the only thing on the Zetec S is that the alloys loook wheeey to small for the car so im gna save for better ones.

As for the body kit. The ST's is so much nicer but il have to stick to the Zetec S's.

Hopefully my car will look mint. Il upload when its all done.

What do you guys think on my ideas.

Very nice ideas, and they will work out a lot cheaper doing it away from Ford.
With the insurance, have you tried you being main and your mum added?, this worked out ALOT cheaper for me doing it this way.

Sorry to peck head but it is a risk and the Volvo T5's (traffic fuzz) are the worst for insurance i know a few people who have been picked on for it but if ur confident about it all the best to u.

This is all personal opinion if i had the car and what id do
Dark silver over the top/side stripes
ST alloys
About a 60% tint on the rear 3 windows and then leave it alone and save for something different, focus st or astra gsi etc...

I just cant work out why you would pay for a car with your own money, then your mum will be driving it around most of the time? strikes a bit of a strange deal tbh i think your mum has got a good deal there!

Anyway like Gaz said, my insurance is massively reduced with my mum n dad being on my insurance as named drivers, you should try it and it might not be so bad, but then again with all those mods and stuff youll be paying you wont be getting of lightly! Also if you do get insurance in your name then you will get to drive the car most of the time instead of your mum driving your car more than yourself! So happy days!

Remember that your insurance will go up into the 5k regions with the mods you have planned. I personally feel that its best to stay simple for the first few years to get a few years NCB under your belt (Will you still get these being an added driver?)

Also, i look forward to seeing you at a few meets in the summer? Click the link in my Signature to put your name and location down ;)

Quick question, Why buy a car that costs as much to insure as it does to buy?

E-bay is your best bet
