Howdy folks, well I popped in to Ford today to ask about my delivery, thinking it'd be about mid-May and was pleasantly surprised when I was told it was sat there to be registered today! So managed to take a few pictures, and comparison's between old and new and here they are!

 

Front end:

The back:

Good looking car in all, and has my toys on it that I ordered thankfully :P

 

Bit of an evolution from my first car here:

New car looks very nice, when do you get the keys

 

Parked side by side the face lift does look meaner, grille is alot better than the chomed slots on the Zetec

 

Thats a smart looking Mini in the last photo, is yours

Hopefully Saturday, but if not then Monday/Tuesday :P

 

Got that little Mini for £450 believe it or not, and all that was wrong was a few scratches and a blown differential (common fault on standard diff's). That's the keeper that one, 1996 1275cc engine that's been supercharged :P

 

Thinking on it, I probably should have taken a few comparison shots of the Zetec sat next to it -.-

Not at all, 900mg of antibiotics 3 times a day make sleeping rather simple :P it's a great looking car though, and the interior is miles better, and let's face it the pre-facelift interior isn't bad at all. Should be good I hope :P

 

Not sure why I have 'Econetic technology' on the back when it's not the econetic engine >.<

I only saw my first facelift zetec s the other day parked up, pretty rare around here it seems and I must admit it did look the part. The white will look great, especially under street lights :) Hopefully one day I might be able to make the jump!

I haven't seen a single ZS except in the showroom, seen quite a lot of Titanium's though. Can't say for sure but on looks and feel seems worth the swap to me, hopefully will think the same a few weeks in. Got a few upgrades to do when it's here :P

Another thing you definitely need to do is get SilverTec style bulbs in those indicators.

God knows why car manufacturers still insist on using amber bulbs, they look vile and really ruin the styling of the lights.

Don't know about this, just are LED's bright enough for the indicators do you think? I definitely agree that they need changing, and seems less annoying to change than the pre-facelift so most likely going to do it this time.

 

CREE's are about the same price as Silvertec's so not sure which is better just yet.

I got a 'customer satisfaction survey' e mail from Ford today, asking how I like my new car......
Needless to say as It's nearly 3 weeks after the last 'provisional' delivery date, & I've still only got the V5 with no sign of the car or even an update from the dealer as to when I'm likely to get it my responses weren't that positive...

Yeah there's a lot of cars sat around, they're actually rolling out cars straight off the ships to the dealers because there's such a back log, there's no storage for any cars entering the country. So unfortunately, those who's cars are in the country waiting delivery, are being put back over people who's cars just arrive, which isn't good at all. I mean obviously I can't complain because by Sunday I'll have the car, but  don't see it fair, and has put me off ordering an ST for now to replace my Colt if I do go through with it.
