Hello

Think they are standard on the Titanium but I have ordered some scuff plates today:

http://www.lockwoodinternational.co.uk/fiesta-zetec-s-2008-on-sill-protectors-part-no-k01x-more-details-i1924.html

Why they are not standard on the Zetec S is beyond me :(

Gary

Got the Ford ones as part of the deal on my last ZS and the new one. Same as these I think:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Genuine-Fiesta-onwards-Plates-Protectors/dp/B005QXJW96

Pretty poor that they still arent standard though. I see them as pretty essential on a 3 door car.

Could so easily be scratched by someone careless squeezing into the back.

Gave a friend of a friend a lift once and instead of stepping straight into the back she stood on the door sill first. I think because she was so... rotund and inflexible. I soon let the fatty know I wasn't happy with her. :lol:

I'll be watching anyone stepping into my car.......to be honest not a lot of folk get into it anyway!

If you want to easily added images to your post, hit the "More Reply Options" button next to the quick reply box and you will be taken to the full editor with the option to add attachments.

Saves messing around with 3rd party hosting, unless you particularly want to, in which case just hit the small image looking icon in the second row of the editor's toolbar and paste the url to the image.

Hi

Your profile pic looks nice.

Why not go for an 'S' badge for the grille?

Welcome Ricky. Your car looks very similar to the one I'm expecting.

Did you go for any options?

Look forward to seeing your pics. Not that many candy blue ZSs around!

hey dave, to be honest i think i had the pretty much standard zetec s, i didnt think it'd be worth forking out the extra ££ for things i wouldnt necessarily use. ill put the pics up tonight which i have already

*apart from upgrading to the 17 inch alloys and tinted rear windows which set the car off lovely!

Hi Ricky

There are cheaper versions but they might not be of good quality.

A pic of my one here:

i think im gonna go for the 'S' on the front grille, was also thinking about getting some nice white bulbs without having to spend an awful lot on HID's and maybe change the interior footwell lighting to blue, anyone have any advice on them?

few pictures of the car i took when first got it, not quite best photography but still

Hi Ricky

'S' badge will make a nice addition to the grille, sets it off perfectly.

I also got an aluminium footrest plate for the far left of the pedals. Same design as the pedals and will stop wear and tear on that part of the carpet.

I took some night time shots of the dash but they were crap. Will try again soon.

Thanks Ricky

The more I look at that picture now the more I see the stripe :angry:

Got the sill protectors, footrest plate, 'S' badge.....not sure what else I can do to it. I'm not very mechanical so not going to fuss around with lighting etc. I'd like blue glow in the footwells though, that woudl look good.

That's coz you leave for work at stupid o' clock !! Window was defrosted by the time I left, but still some frost on the roof. The heated windscreen and mirrors are a wonderful invention ... I had them for the first time on my last car.

Sssssshhhht, don't mention the W word !!!! :(
