A few photos taken quickly with my phone.  Zetec S Ecoboost in race red.  Extras include privacy glass and auto wipers/lights and I have changed the bulbs to silver indicator bulbs, blue side lights and Osram Nightbreaker Plus Dipped Beam.  Looking at how to upgrade the DRL/Full Beams as well.  Have also fitted chrome tax disk holder and at some point I am going to fir an S badge to the front grille similar to the new ST.

 

Hope you like :)

Added the S badge to the front and rear of the car.  Darved out a space in the front Grille so it would sit flush similar to the ST's.  What do you think?

hi James, 

 

Noticed we'd been in some chats nice looking brotherly car haha.

 

Ours are identical with those S badges now , you fitted one on back yet? I haven't as to be honest don't really know where to put it - might look a little out of place.


Show us a pic of your lights at night - got those caps which fit over the H15's today so ill try and fit them soon and get a photo up.

ahh yeah just seen it, dont know which side i prefer if any..

 

ah yeah well its like samsung / apple mines in a different location and looks slightly different - plus it was there first! :P

 

What else you thinking of doing to it? I'm thinking the footwell lights change to red. Took a look at the bulbs last night look a simple pull out put in job.

I have an eBay 'S' for the front of mine, little bit bigger than the Ford one, as well as having 2 smaller Ford ones :P going to see which is better, luckily the one I had on the front of my ZS came off easy, so didn't have to go buy another at £13 >.<

Here is a photo with the lights on.  Not sure what you can tell from it to be honest just taken with my phone.  They are Osram Nightbreaker Plus bulbs with are 90% brighter and 10% whiter than standard bulbs aparently.  There no match for the H4's on my Punto Evo Sporting though with the Osrams in that  they were much brighter.

 

Am thinking of either buying some LED w5w, to change the sidelights as I am not that happy with the blue bulbs I have at the moment, and changing the footwell lights for them or perhaps changing them for a blue light as the dash is more blue than red.

Havent ended up fitting those blue caps which fit on the H15's they were useless and didnt fit so ill be sending them back!

 

How did you get out the side lights? I see a grey/white plastic long clip but couldnt budge it?

The grey clip is like a tray the side light fits onto the end of it.  You really need a good pull to get it out.  I think one came out easily but the other one I used a pair of pliers and kinda leavered it out.  I put blue bulbs into them but still not happy with them so think I am going to get some LEDs instead.  Might also change the footwell bulbs for them as well while I am at it.  Either that or change them for really blue bulbs to match the dash.

 

I have to sat though that the whole lights thing has been so much more awkward than i think it needed to be.  If you didn't have any luck with those blue filters for the H15s then looks like were stuck with the crappy yellow DRLs then :(  Oh well never mind lol
