To make you buy a Titanium :P they've added the option to the ST2 now so who knows!

Annoyed!  :angry:

Hi people, what are your best suggestions on coating the car with for over the winter?

 

Any winter wax or anything out there to coat with?

 

Thanks, Nathan

Couple of coats if collonite # 845 should give you 6-9 months protection!

Was told last week that my delivery date has been put back by two - three weeks.  So I took the oppurtunity to add the 17" wheels and DAB radio to cheer me up    :) .

Only just noticed the DRL lights on the Zetec S, I think they are horrid. What options do I have to change them, perhaps putting LED's in instead? i'd love the titanium DRL's but I'm clueless with cars!

Has anyone changed the rear lights / brake lights? Was thinking of something like: http://www.powerbulb...e-vision-p21-5w
Anyone got any advice on which bulbs are best / opinions?

Im looking at Zetec S or Titanium X 1.0 123bhp with some options thus bringing the cost close to ST.
What sort of MPG should I be expecting driving sensible and hammering the 1.0 ecoboost 123bhp?

According to the below links the average is 46.6

When I was first driving my car I was getting 48mph, that was sensible driving with a very light throttle.

 

Realistically now I've been getting 40-42mpg with the odd few bursts of speed.

Yeah thats what I mean. At the moment mine is just a single dim bulb and it looks awful.. I wanted the strip like you've got but on certain cars its a bright white rather than dull yellow?

Thanks for the response.

I know to expect less than the stats suggest but in the real world surely 55-60 as an average.

40s is poor for a new eco car especially at the price it costs to purchase .
Im just weighing up value for money - tax free is not an incentive as effectively your paying upfront tax (cost of the car itself) to have that privilege.

Be interesting to know what mpg mark2 ST owners are getting driving sensibly and hammering?

I was starting to think they didn't deliver the DRL's in the UK....Everytime someone posts a picture of their car it's without the DRL. I have them on mine and I just love them. I was alway like...."When I buy a new car I MUST HAVE DRL " :P  :D

Hey guys, newbie here (but been lurking for a while!).

 

I ordered a Zetec S in white, city pack and DAB radio back in late august. I was told 12 weeks or so and recently confirmed it's on course for first week of November! With that being a only few weeks away now when should I expect to find out delivery date and reg?

 

Cheers!

Hi

 

 I also ordered mine in late August. Latest news is that its being built first week of Nov , expected delivery to dealer is Nov 30. So if i get it two - three days later it will have taken 15 weeks.

Hi guys,
I've had my zetec s since April now. Really loving it so far. Only getting about 40.7mpg though. It's a lot lower than I was sold on to the honest. Not going to complain too much though, still love the car.

Can anyone tell me if there are plans for a mountune kit for Ecoboost zetec s? I would jump on it if there was a kit available.
