I've seen a few ambient lighting retrofit threads where a feed is taken from the light in the roof, but would it be possible to add the strip that goes above the glovebox in the way Ford do on the Zetec/Titanium? I can see the holes where the strip would clip in and a larger one at the end where the wire would go, but have no idea where it should go to.

Though bearing in mind the only place I've seen to buy it is on european-parts and this is the full kit with the other lights too, I can't really justify the cost! Unless this can be bought cheaper anywhere else on it's own?

I'm not too fussed by this as when I've seen it in other peoples cars it doesn't really stand out much, but if it's cheap and easy to do then I may as well!

I have got it to work. It will come on when the lights are on. Its not quite as ford intended but it works so im happy. You have to join two wires in order to get power but other than that it was all plug and play. Im well chuffed. Will add a guide to this thread shortly

I love these threads where everyone with the Zetec S tries to make them look like Titaniums. ;)

I love it when people with Titaniums try and make it look like a Zetec S - especially when it only has a 1.4 engine ;)

Cheers, new it wouldn't take long for someone to fall into the trap. :P

The thing is, when I got my Tit in 09, it didn't look like a Zetec S because the Zetec S didn't have side skirts or the same front bumper/splitter, the only common feature was the rear spoiler. So, what they did was in future, make the Zetec S look like the Tit with dress up kit. :lol:

As for the engine, yep, 1.4 is pretty powerless, but so are all the other engines in the range and as it was bought for the wife, it didn't make a jot of difference. My car on te otherhand, is the one in front of the Fiesta in my avatar. Here's a clue, 3.2 litres and 340bhp. ;)
