Was it easy mate as it's something I want to do but don't fancy messing around with the lights to much


It's a bit tight, probably helps to have smallish hands :)

Have something to contribute?

I have been given an estimated build date today of 29th March

Any idea how long I would expect to wait until delivery after the build date ?

Was yours a completely new order or was there a build slot, I ordered my Tit X on January 25 still haven't heard a dicky and being 21 in 2 weeks im still hopeful of it by then somehow :)

I have had an update today & my build date has been brought forward from 29th March to the 26th (small change but it all helps)

No confirmation of delivery date yet but they have advised me they can confirm my registration number next week

Update - My Ford dealer has advised they should have my ZS by week ending 19th April

This month wait is going to be painful :-(

Patience is a virtue! It'll soon come around, I can't believe there's a considerable wait for these cars. I see then frequently on the roads at the moment but it's just a good deal and with the fiestas being built in Germany they're great build quality!

I don't see many tbh which is good but I'm sure when I get mine, I'll see them everywhere

I saw a hot mustard ZS today which looked better on the road than in pictures

I actually love the Hot Mustard colour, I chose between Race Red and the Mustard colour but I didn't feel brave enough to have a contrasting colour. I wish I had though, and got some gun metal grey alloys on it! Played it safe with Red :(

I definitely think the Race Red is a nice colour if looked after, really looks bright on the road. But my car is always dirty and I barely wash it to be honest, my cars neglected I'm afraid to say ;)

If you want to de-tango the rear you have to remove the light fitting, dead easy though. Front lights are much easier to do if you remove them, you can do the headlights at the same time then, just be brave. Plenty of guides on here to help you. Only ones I haven't done are my side indicators, not been confident enough to do them yet. I will one day.

The side mirror caps make an awful sound when you clip then off, seriously thought I broke then when I did mine

That's what worries me especially as they are colour coded. Headlights make enough of a noise when you take them out. First time I thought jeez that didn't sound good, but it was fine. Guess I just need to man up and go for the mirrors, lol

Those dates can't be for a new order, they must be 'hijacking' an order already on the system - this is fairly common, but only with cars with certain spec and colour combos.

1.0 125 Zetec S on order!
