Good Man! Glad you like it.

 

Slightly Jel over the dark seats though, I have the original Orange 1/2 leather ones, but nice, do like the Red suits the car to the ground.

Excellent stuff! A guy at work said to me that I should not floor it at all during the first 1000 miles so that it runs in properly. I thought the days of running in were over? (to a degree). Not that I am going to go flooring it everywhere naturally. It will take me 3-4 months to rack up 1000 miles!

 

Any thoughts on running in guys?

Me neither. I make sure the engine is up to running temp before I floor it.

Willy posted something recently which I believe was from the manual stating something about 1000miles and having to drive like a granny to run it in

The dealer never said anything to me and there is nothing comes with the car when delivered. Can't understand why a car would need a 1000 miles to run in nowawdays. Last time I saw that was many years ago and even then was only for 500 miles. They used to put a thinker oil in that had to be changed after the running in period so you had to go back to dealer to sort it out.

Back of my handbook under R for running in.   

 

It's more important to vary the speed and revs over the first 1000 miles and not drive at too low revs.    Labouring is actually worse than high revs but common sense prevails with a new car.  Everything has to bed in to avoid premature wear.    Get your first oil change in early to get rid of the swarf from the new engine.    Also this is a high performance machine. Don't skimp on servicing, quality of fuel and tyres etc.

You should always make sure the engine is fully up to temp before revving it too high (above 3k rpm). You shouldn't need to run in a modern engine as such, but try to keep full throttle /max revs to short bursts for the first few hundred miles.

Also, don't forget that you WILL need to bed in the brakes. This can take several hundred miles of regular road driving, but this can be done in a couple of hours hours using the correct technique (search how to bed in brakes on a track/race car for details on how to do this - you will need a nice long empty road to do this!). DO NOT drive fast with hard braking until you have bedded them in. You will ruin your brakes if you do.

1.0 125 Zetec S on order!

Ah see what you're getting at now. I do vary driving, can't blast around everywhere after all and crawling along on M62 car park everyday probably helps balance it all out. 

 

I always service on time, have got a 3 year deal with Ford so no worries about costs. 

 

I use v-power and tyres will have to see when they are due to be replaced.

with the first oil change, when does this need to be done? I've done 8k now and not changed the oil, first new car I've had and thought you just change it on the first service?

Well, my old car is up for sale for any potential ZS owners: http://www.geoffcoxc...e/aetv64762094/

 

They have messed up some details on the site though. It only had 5.6k miles on it, didn't have DAB and I was the owner as opposed to them putting N/A!
