I have a 2009 c max 2.0 zetec but I notice the titanium has a great centre console? 

I do however also note the handbreak is on the drivers side of the console, at present, the zetec is fitted as if for a left hand drive on the other side.

Can or is there a way to enter change these consoles? Or is there an alternative to I can get a centre storage holder?

If you get the console from the same spec (i.e.you might be able to buy a Left Hand Drive console for a titanium) and that means you might get what you need?

No not really as mine is a right hand drive but the titanium right hand drive has the handbreak on the other side? Weird stuff but I presume that this is a si9mple enough swap as they are both C max and only a few little differences.

Having said that, why bother I suppose, a lot of work for very little reward LOL. Probably just as well getting a ebay centre console to bolt on?!?!?!?!

On a happier note, I had looked for a carbon bonnet trim (to replace the chrome) without any luck. Well when I say no luck the only ones I could find were £100+ and I wasn't paying that!

So contacted a hydro dip place who offered to do a hydro dip on the chrome with a black/red carbon, https://www.google.c...ts.html;448;336 not sure if this link will work but I thought is was quite smart? £35?

Anybody found decent DRL's for a c max? Bought a few off ebay but they really are abysmal?

Yeah I was just thinking that the handbrake on the LHD motor should still be towards that side. so if you were to find one you should find its a direct swap. I would be surprised if they move the handbrake on a LHD model.

 

As for the DRL's there are different types, the best ones though IMO are fog light housing DRL's

Yeah sadly they dont seem to do the same style that I have found so far, you will need to trapse around the web to find that particular style, but someone somewhere should do one. Alternatively, a well positioned Universal fit, can offer a good outcome also.

A word to the wise, don't buy these ones, they are abysmal!

If anybody finds an OEM or universal style that has a fair power can you let me know. Happy to spend up to about £60  ;)

Depends, if you want DRL LED's then that is one thing, but if you wanted you can convert the fog lights to operate as an DRL, although I havent looked too far into it.The best

 

thing to do first is find where you want them to live, measure this area to find the maximum you can take and then start looking at LED's from between 25 and 60 quid, there are different styles, intensities, number of LED's vary also.

 

It just takes a bit of research, I dont think mine looked too badly though and I bought them based on budget of £15, but they can look better if you can spend more :)

I have spent months looking and 95% are crap quality and strength, I have 4 sets lying here now and none are really very good :( I am actually using one set now as additional boot lights LOL! Great power, but poor quality build and also rigid so not easy to find a 10 inch flat surface!

They look good, I saw them but was looking more for dedicated fog housing ones but with 18 month warranty it's a good investnebt

Just not too sure they would be very bright! The wife is going crazy with new DRL's arriving every 3rd day and none any good! None that high powered :(

If you want the truely (factory looking) brightness, you need to pay over £50, anything less than that and its just going to be a little less bright (check my bus build thread for an example of the ones I had). I didnt mind them, I didnt expect them to be as strong output as headlights though.
