Yes i noticed what you say aswell , my old ST225 had Ambient lights glowing on the gear shift so ya had glowed red , missed that and ambient lighting on my 59plate fiesta zetec s plus the lack of map reading lights , seemed very basic for a sporty car plus cheap plastic door panels which marked easy wen unclicking my seat belt as there was a plastic button later replaced with a stitched on loop to stop it marking the door on later models .
I also think ford should put xenons in the options list on fiestas then i wouldn't have to source an HiD kit for mine new soon to be with me st as had 4 st170's and 2 st225's with xenons an totally missed them on my last 2 fiesta's and duely upgraded them with xenon bulbs an led sidelights plus number plate ones !

The new Focus titanium and st have these bulbs etc but are expensive cars to begin with plus only 5doors and not that sporty and now why it has to be a fiesta for me nowadays :)

Yeah, it's all subject to change. Only difference from Zetec is the ambient lighting, which really makes no sense not being in but is simple to install :P

 

I have an HID kit going in to mine, they're £65 from hid's direct, good quality set up - no complaints so far.

I ordered my new Zetec-S on the 28th of Jan, however mine had already built and the ETA is This week (Ending on the 13th). My Dealer text me 3 times today to let me know that it hadn't been delivered :-(. Really excited to drive it as i haven't had a car since June last year. Really hoping delivery doesn't get delayed another month or so. First time dealing with ford. I'll keep you posted.

Yes you're right as all the wiring looms in all fiesta range are pretty much the same so fitting folding mirrors and ambient light should be easy to fit but that not much of a worry to me as my brother works for dc electronics in essex who make wiring looms etc for Mclaren an other exotic cars an will help me fit hids and ambient lighting if i wish to fit them :)

The plugs are in the car already but need activating, or you can just wire them to a sidelight wire somewhere along the line :P

Yep me too!!  Gave them my other car June last year!!  New one was finally ordered Aug 12, and i am still waiting!!!  If was not the TDCI engines it was the body kit, then if it wasn't electronic components shortage it was a back log, i wonder what it will be now as the last ETA was last week!!!

I think when it does finally arrive, i will ask them to activate the ambient lighting and the cruise control for me, then buy the strip light by the glove box and the centre part of the steering wheel. with the cruise buttons, and mention the wait!

Yeah i thought as much from what I've read and heard being plug n play , I've found some canbus 6000k ones for mk7 zetec s , titanium models on eBay from a company in Liverpool for £65 so there pretty much the same price every where for a good quality set hid kit .

I heard about paint work problems on bumpers on white cars as an excuse in deliveriy delays and driver assist not being available on certain models as supplier can't supply ford , one plant that makes the s max being barricaded with nothing going in or out of the plant an cars held up until June or later than that ? Ford have serious problems since i brought my previous car 2 years ago as i have never waited this long before !

They don't like activating stuff for people as it detracts away from buying the Titanium >.<

 

Only going on my experience, I went with them because they're local to me. Exactly the look I wanted too. 6000K is the best looking in my opinion. Saw a Corsa with 10,000K the other day which looked disgusting, and not just because it was a chav in a 1.0 eco Corsa :P

Got a call from my (car) dealer spurred on by my 'satisfaction' survey comments. Been told I should have it within 2 weeks.....
