Hey All,

We are new to this forum and we have seen some great looking cars and got some good ideas!
We would love to hear of any ideas from you all, I have added some pics would love to hear of what you all think :)
We have only had the car for couple of months and done a few bits to it now... Changed the alloys, Exhausts and the odd painting jobs. The headlights are next in the list.

Hi guys,

Very nice looking Zetec S you got there, I think the red vents and calipers look awesome :)
Could do with some foglight surround DRL's and maybe some dmb graphics badge overlays??
Not too keen on the quad exhaust, personally think twin would look better but just my opinion
Great to see lots of innovative mods to these lovely Zetec S' :)

Hi harrison,
Thanks for the post. Interest to read your opinion on our exhausts we did think about a different design and went for those in end and are really happy with them but everyone has different tastes. Couldn't agree more about the drl's but we've seen the headlights on eBay with them built in and a hid kit and angel eyes for £480 bit pricey I know, so we're thinking of going for the cheaper option.
Do you know of any induction kits for the zetec s?
Also I know a bloke who has custom made and sells front splitters for the zetec s for £75 which is a brilliant price! And there finished in black gloss :)
I'm also having trouble getting my roof aerial off, any suggestions?

Hi Liam !
Thanks for the praise on the exhaust, no its not a full cat back just been custom made from the back box, do you know if you can get a full cat back for the Tdci zetec s? If so where?
Thanks

Welcome mate, awesome car, great to see some more Zetec S'!

I have an induction kit on mine, it's only one of the cheap universal ones, but I'm going to go back to standard Ford until I can get a full induction kit!

Hi,
please give me more info regarding the front splitter in gloss black and some pictures if possible,
id be very interested in this,

the red vents in the front lip is a nice touch mate,
if you get a pliers to the grips on the aerial and turn towards the passenger side it will come loose for you to unscrew by hand,
and regarding an induction kit codered manufacture a custon built induction system and intercooler designed specificly for the 2.0 TDCi engine to provide proven gains in performance,

Hi, if you go on Facebook and search 'triple R composites' he has all the info and pictures on there :) I'm tempted with the induction kit and inter cooler but will the induction kit bring up a fault on dash display?

Thanks

not that i am aware of mate,
on the code red website it saus it is designed to be a direct replacment to the original and the have a PDF guide on their showing how to fit it, says it reduices charge temps by 30% and i havent heard of anyone having errors with the kit,
these intercoolers were selling for 900euro last janyary and are now lwss than half price, i hope they keep stock of them until i can afford one too.

i dont have a facebook account but hopfully i can still view the page. thanks very much
