Not a fan of the front end, looks good on a mondeo and an aston (respectively long cars) but not a small family hatch :/

Seen a ZS one, not a fan really. Wheels - terrible, the grill looks nice, but not on a Fez, and the back end... Well that's nice and I will be ordering one of the bumpers myself :P

Isn't the back end the same? Just changed the lights slightly.

You're right, i will feel sick when i see one becuase it's so ugly :lol: That front end is just awful on a small car and it will never grow on me.

Not on the Zetec S, on that they have the Mk 6 style bottom valance that looks really smart if honest.

I hadn't noticed that, are there any better pictures around? The only one I can find is a small one on Ford's page. It does look good from what I can see though!

Thanks for that. I'm still sceptical about BMW's claims. I think that's just BMW waffle. It says that "wasted kinetic energy" when braking is used to drive the alternator to charge the battery - it does that anyway on a conventional car under the same conditions. Also, on a normal car, if there is any battery load on the alternator (which the article keeps referring to as a generator just to cloud the issue - although true it is in fact an ac generator whose output is rectified) when the throttle is open then it means that the battery needs charging which is what the alternator is there for and to not have the alternator running defeats the object. I can't see any advantage to that.

Saw my first one one in the flesh today.
Nice car but still not sold on that grille.
I don't think the car is big enough to do it justice.

I've seen a couple of new ones on the road now plus one in a dealer I drive past every day, and have to say I really don't like it! The front just looks odd and the rear lights look a bit weird too, not sure what's going on with that square silver line in the middle of them.

Sometimes newer doesn't mean better.
