Cars registered in September 2011 are 61 plates.

Registrations are in March and September so all March reg's will have the year 11/12/13 etc and add 50 for the September reg's 61/62/63 etc.

The Mk 7 started to appear in 2008 so will be on 08 plates. The facelift or Mk 7.5 appeared in Jan / Feb 2013 so are 62 plates.

Confusing I know.

Hi Joe

Yes it does sound good and I got frozen white I know it's the new silver to some people and I have to say

it looks good in red, but at my age I think white was the better choice (less boy racer)!!

kennypops maybe i'll end up swapping my mk7 for one then, yeah alot of people seem to be having white cars lately. The speed of the ST appeals to me but i acctually prefer the ZS look wise and to be honest i dont really need the extra power. What MPG do you get in your ZS?

Hi Joe

I have only done about 650 miles so can't give you an accurate figure yet but at the moment it's showing 47.3 mpg, a mix of

town driving with a little bit of motorway. I think it would be a lot better on a long journey.

does anyone know if the seats are the same in the 1.0 Zs as the mk7 ZS?

They're different, not by much but they are different.

The sides are a little more longer from base to top of the seat, as are the ones on the base of the seat, and they're a little higher out of the main seat frame. They're a little more firm too, but only where support is needed.

The pattern is differently laid out too, same pattern, just the middle is no longer a block of that spotty material, it's more designed. Also if you get Race Red, Frozen White or Panther Black, you can have an free option of red trimming on it.

Thanks dave

I dont mind the seats in my mk7 but sometimes feel as if they could be slightly more hugging which from what youve just said the face lift seats are

They are a little bit yes. It's a much more comfortable car all over.

Could anyone with the 125bhp petrl get a sound recording of the exhaust? Just wondering how it would sound? Any good back boxes to make it rumble a little? Not much though just a little purring

Video is not mine (!) - just found that on Youtube:

Maybe someone from this forum community made this video? :-)

IMO, it is 125hp version - didnt try that hard reving yet on mine :-) But looking good, easy acc to 160km/h on 3rd.

Hi all - I've been watching this thread for a few months now so thought I'd drop a message to say I ordered my Zs a few weeks ago and to also thank every one who's contributed to this thread, it's been really helpful when deciding what to order!

The car should be getting built at the end of July & I've asked for a 1st September delivery.

Hi there


I have a panther black 125 titanium, which must be something between a uk Zetec and Titanium.

I got it with the winter tires on the original 15 "alloy, and then I bought ST rim in gray unlike most pictures of ST where it is dark gray.


Auto A / C, roof spoiler, heated windscreen, power windows rear, SYNC

Aftermarket privacy glass in the 5 rear windows 15% and 70% in the front 4 windows as privacy glass in the front windows are actually illegal in Denmark


Now, it is just ned to be lowered a bit :)

Oh yeah and get rid of the crome window list, and get the dressup kit, but I don't think I could add it when i bought the car, and as aftermaret its expensive

Do you know if the Air Deflector / Spoiler will fit without the dressup

What I whant the most is full leather seats, We can't order that in DK. So I will be looking for a used one i Germany in a year or two

Here is a Danish "Sport" with Black lists
