I got a Zetec Blue 1.25L brand new (picked it up yesterday, got a nice deal so thought why not) for a "weekend car". I work in the city and don't use a car much. My car history was an insanely modified 206 :lol: , then a 3 series and now this. I didn't need anything fancy because its sole purpose is to do the weekend chores I can't do during the week due to work. It's a 5 door, with the bluetooth features and the tech pack. The car is great for driving around town. It is miles better than the 206 I had before.

I am really happy with it. I have hooked up my iPod classic 80gb through the line in using the true line out on the iPod (got a dongle). Sounds perfect, R.E.M., Dire Straits, The Who all sound crystal clear on the speakers! Ford are offering a USB attachment soon though so you can access your ipod on the head unit B) which will be even better.

Does anyone know how to access call history through the head unit? Mines just shows unavailable. I assume this is mobile dependant? (I use a O2 XDA Stellar)

If anyone wants any pics, let me know.

Have something to contribute?

Yeah I like it. Nice to drive and easy to use. Good fuel economy!

I havent been low on petrol, I always keep half a tank at least in the car. Not sure why the beam would come on, sounds like a silly feature if it was to remind the driver.

PS slimfast how can we check the VIN, what do we look out for?

Look on the outside of your car through the windscreen on the passenger side.right in the corner of the windscreen you will see a number in a little box.cross reference it with all the others given on the suspension warning thread.
