It seems these Zetec S's are gaining in popularity, I've seen quite a few more on the roads lately!

 

I was really undecided if it was worth spending the extra money and starting my 2 years again instead of just keeping my standard Zetec, but by the replies on here I'm now very confident I've made the right choice!

 

I've only been waiting one week and I just want to get the car now! Especially now the sun has decided to come out!

 

Does anyone have any experience with changing a car on Ford Options? I know I have to have mine inspected soon but then will I litterally just go to the dealership on my collection date in one car and leave in my new one?

 

Thanks for all the replies!

A lovely mod to any fiesta are the Dectane rear light clusters. They bring the rear lights right up to date without it looking like an obvious or chavvy mod. Full LED.


Had them on my Saxo loved them i will try and get some pics up if i have them.

but they had to be re-wired because they were for LHD but dealer did that for the cost of a pint :)

Would they fit RHD Fiesta without having to re-wire?

Did they not inspect it before you put the order in for the new car? Mine got inspected and valued then as the car was slightly damaged (got keyed and someone bashed a trolley into the side) I had to pay £300 to clear the finance. Then once the new car arrived I just took the car in, filled in a few forms, shook the guys hand and drove off in the new one :)

The Dectane clusters should fit the 7.5 as it's the same cluster just reworked.

Lhd/rhd is no difference on the little fiesta so it's not a problem :)

Nope, it's all been done over the phone so far, the guy said as long as there is no visible damage it wont need to be inspected until closer to the time, I haven't actually signed any paperwork yet either!

I'm guessing they might be being a bit lenient tho as my Dad works at JLR so I'm lucky enough to get the Privilege Discount, and the he also knows the bloke from the dealership :)

Ah I see. I guess they only inspected mine first as I said there was slight damage over the phone.

I'm also lucky enough to get privilege discount :)

Also pretty good times there (if they stick to them :P). I ordered mine 15/11/2013, built 15/01/2014 and picked up 01/02/2014

Greenhouse28. Do you have any options in your car? Because I ordered 16th Jan, and still no build date or delivery date, all I've been told is firsts 2 weeks of April!! But I do have sat nav, privacy glass, keyless entry and 17" alloys so I know it takes longer but still no would expect dates as most of you are getting them?

Welcome! I'm sure you will love your Zetec S, just like we all enjoy ours. I find the car so practically useful, reasonably cheap to ensure especially as when I got it I was 18, just turned 19, economic (aslong as you aren't heavy footed) and also it's nice to have a bit of go when you need it, I have mine mapped however so it is generally more powerful. Looking forward to seeing some pictures once you've got it! Any modifications your planning on at all?
