Well in that case you have no need to remove the bumper just two torx screws and a plastic retaining lug hold your headlamps in place oh and a sharp tug.

Yeah I got the mongoose cat back for £100 as they used mine for testing, just trying to barter with them to use it again as a test car for the sports cat and downpipe and stage 1 remap now :P

That's good! I wish I'd tried to do that now, what's the cat back like? And does it sound good? Do you have any idea when they will start selling them?

Just tried Drive the deal for a new Focus, but as is so typical of so many deals, its not available in Northern Ireland. :angry:

Was even happy to get the price, deal with the dealer pay up front, get the papers and register it in Northern Ireland, then go to the mainland to collect it, but still not happening.

So if anyone is in Northern Ireland (still part of the UK) and thinking of using them and budgeting around their prices - sorry guys they won't drive THE deal.

Broker4cars will, fordretailonline will so wondering what the issue is really?

"Ford plots faster Fiesta Zetec S warm hatch for 2014"

http://www.carmagazine.co.uk/Secret-new-cars/Search-Results/Spyshots/Ford-plots-hotter-Fiesta-Zetec-S-warm-hatch-for-2014/

Not sure if this has be mentioned before, I saw this article a few months back and wondered if it's got any truth to it?

An extra 15bhp and a six speed box should make it quite nippy.

I imagine it's very likely - S1600's & Metals sold pretty well so makes sense for them to do one on the facelift.

Can anyone link me to any pics/vids of an 'S' badge on the front grille of the facelift. Ive just ordered one for my new ZS and i need an idea of where to place it. Its self adhesive so I assume i just need to stick it on and it will stay there?...

There was a pic somewhere on this thead, l will upload the pic of my car tonight/tomorrow.

I would say you should put your ST badges in the same place as the Fiesta ST right?

I got my Hot Magenta EcoBoost a week ago and I love it! Not as economical as Ford claims, but I love the little rumble it makes taking off
