Dealers will not/can not retrofit anything like that for you.

I'm the only person I know of that can activate/install features like that on the Fiesta, but I've not had a MK7.5 to play with yet.

And there's also the slight issue of getting hold of a cruise control steering wheel - all the ones in scrapyards will have the silver plastic (as opposed to the shiny chrome one now) and light up red instead of blue.

many thanks for the reply

Similarly i heard of component parts delaying some spec models, shortage of Sony units or mother boards etc etc.  I must note though, we cannot just go at the dealers head on about delays, they are after all a franchise and they themselves get their info from Ford!!!  What i find astonishing is the number of dealers saying they are at the mercy of the ford delivery service from the time the vehicle enters the country at what ever port to the dealers car park round back.

 

My dealers have had to just wait, like me!  But i will be expecting this add-on and that extra to be.......FOC!!!

I finally got my st2 late yesterday so after just over 10 weeks waiting with 3 odd weeks of that being stuck at dagtops i have the keys :) the dealer was getting sick of me moaning the last week or so as i constantly phoned an kept popping in to get updates ! What made it worse was there delivery holding compund was 20 miles away so it arrived there last thursday and i didn't want it driven to there dealership so had to wait a further 4 days for it to transported , it now been on 2 transporters so its already well travelled . They didn't even get chance to clean it properly with me wanting to take delivery so it is abit dusty on the dash an covered in tyre shine all over the white paint work and my wheels an red brake calipers plus looking at it closely today i found i already have a stone chip on the bonnet near the nearside headlight which is gutting after waiting so long but i can honestly say it was worth the wait wen i drove it lastnight as its goes like stink after having a little play with a mk1 focus rs and induction roar gets the hairs on your the back of ya neck standing up , not getting good mpg thou yet as only doing about 23/24 having only done 80 miles in it : )

I've checked the spec of the car I hopefully pick up Friday on the Ford Etis site. In the list it states amongst other things-
Ambient Lighting-Interior, &
Unique Met Finish Foot Pedals Pads.
I'm sure I read on this forum somewhere that the Zetec S DIDN'T have 'ambient lighting or sports pedals, so that's a bit weird.
Worryingly though it also says-
Less Bluetooth......

Ambient lighting in the Zetec S is cup holder only, and people's were coming without the pedals but should have been fitted with them. Not a clue on the Bluetooth.

My St2 has ambient lighting around the cup holder and a strip across the glovebox which i did not expect to have fitted and also wasn't expecting it to have an adjustment to dim the instrument dials as thought that was only on titanium models and zetecs plus also got map reading lights which weren't on my 59 or 11 plate zetec S cars previous so ford seem to have spec'd up the sportier models of late .
