Why can't you get the Street pack for a diesel?

It's just not an optional extra. Have no idea why. Ford said would be a 1700 job to it as a dealership extra. Absolutely crazy.

Weird, it was available when I bought mine. Seems a lot for the street pack even broken down into parts, probably some elaborate labour costs, you could probably buy the parts for a lot less and fit yourself if you know how.

Hasn't been available since March 2010 when the new 95PS engine with DPF came out. I believe the reason was something to do with emissions.

If you were to buy the streetpack yourself you'd be looking at £1,000 (4 x £150 = £600 for alloys, then 4 x £100 = £400 for tyres)

dont forget about the privacy glass - which is also part of the street pack

I hadn't forgot, just missed the word 'alloys' from my post ;)
The dealer trying to charge £700 for tints, they're having a laugh! Mine were £60.

:P Not sure smashing the window's is worth the insurance increase if honest, surely the glass isn't that expensive anyway?

£70 excess and you get proper privacy glass, not film tints

This was a tongue in cheek remark, I wouldn't really do it - although I have no qualms against people who do, do it - insurance is a massive scam.

Petrol 120 is the best!! .. Yeah the diesel is a great car. But the petrol one is more fun.and you can tune it better, Also The diesel ones are made here in dagenham Essex and the petrol ones are made and imported from fords factory in Germany . Petrol for me :)

I beg to differ, a simple remap or tuning box will increase the diesel bhp by 25% whilst maintaining a lot more torque than the petrol. Boosting a petrol by 25% would take a lot of dollar ;)

Diesel engines respond to tuning far better than petrol ones.
