Hi all, been on other forums for a while, but thought id show myself on here and see what you guys have to say!

a few of you i recognise from other sites, others are new and have some decent cars!

anyway heres a quick timeline of my focus 1.8 petrol Zetec-s

When i bought it. second owner, 1 year old 7,000 miles
Posted Image
Posted Image

First mod - powerflow tailpipe £30ish off ebay not fitted very well though
Posted Image

Then carbon wrapped the bonnet lip
Posted Image

along with the centre console
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

with some Zetec-s Mudflaps off ebay not very visible..
Posted Image

new LED's
Posted Image
Posted Image

then some DRL's
Posted Image
Posted Image

And colour coded the bezels
Posted Image
Posted Image

Next was a new air filter gives it a bit of grunt
Posted Image

and added a sub to the factory head unit
Posted Image
Posted Image

the harness i made so its just plug and play with the RCA
Posted Image

Car on the Dyno at AMD Essex for a event i set up with focusowners.com
Posted Image

putting out 138.9bhp with just an airfilter! not bad from the 125 standard :)
Posted Image
Posted Image

i then done a bit of self hydro dipping to my centre console as i wasnt happy with the vinyl
Posted Image
Posted Image

At a free charity show this summer with the rear lights fly-eye's
Posted Image
Posted Image

I then painted my alloys after i saw an MS Design concept..
Posted Image

More of the Fly-eye
Posted Image

i then done a cheeky mod that i discovered.. a 1.8TDCI exhaust swap.. next to next ( mine has two silencers TDCI has 1!)

Posted Image

video of result..



after it settled in/cleared..


(P.s passed MOT fine )

and then its latest mod is some plasti-dip

the bonnet lip as the carbon vinyl was weathered and peeling and also the bottom grille
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

and the rear diffuser
Posted Image

thats it for now.

next on the list (if i keep it) Cruise control, eibachs, front splitter (Tripple R) and some more plasti dip'ing....

hope you have enjoyed this erm long post haha

feel free to comment ! :D

Haha, thanks, im extremely pleased with the sound, considering all in cost me about £50!!!! ( TDCI exhaust off breaker on ebay) just looking for some more simple performance mods! maybe a re-map?


the centre trim is easy.. the radio panel just pulls off (carefully, its only clipped in), the windscreen switches are held on with two screws, then if you open the glove box, and the two top screws closest to the front (facing the windscreen) take them out, then there is a screw under the rubber mat in the cup holder, and the whole bit should then come out with a wiggle, the flip door is then held down with two screws.

no pictures though sorry!

Nice pics, car looks really nice. I see you have been to Lakeside with it lol.
Wish I could have got an ST but going up and down the M11 every day would have cost a fortune in an ST.
I was gunna say are u going to put any day time running lights on it till I scrolled down and saw u already have lol.

hi mate and welcome...

finally someone else with a 1.8 zetec S, they seem to be as rare as rocking horse s**t on here lol
like alot of your mods but not all... iv got the white led footwell lights, instead of a sub i piggy backed infinity 6x9 speakers off the rear speakers and mounted them in the parcel shelf. Got the mudflapsand the drls...with yours is that any silver you sprayed them with or is that supposed to be the ford moondust silver??
dont like what youve done with the alloys but each to there own lol
lovely car though mate, have you considered the custom made heater dials, cheap mod that in my opinion changes the inside of the car 10 fold!!
or the twin reverse light conversion??
cant believe the gains you got from just the air filter!! ive recently fitted the green cotton air filter and would be intersted to see what gains ive got if any...

yeah i had to cut it back to over the rear axel and yeah at the time it was specifically made by powerflow for the ZS, but now you can pick them up off ebay/ other places..

Ahh my bad, gets hard reading these posts on a phone, must have missed it. MPG sounds good. Wish I could have a 64 mile round trip mine is over double that lol.
Where did you get your footwell lights from, they look good. Nice idea with the wiring harness too so you can get your sub connected, like that. I managed to find one from ebay years ago for my old focus (the orignal shaped one) it worked a dream but the sub would hum if you opened the driver door on the car. Never worked that one out lol.
