Show Us Your Mk3.5!

Recommended Posts

 

This might be the first time I've thought the mk3.5 looked as good as the mk3. Not sure if its just the angle of the photograph or what, but until now I just didn't like the exterior of the mk3.5 for some reason.

I did look at the Deep Impact Blue (if that's the Focus equivalent) but in the end went for the Magnet. I had a Panther black car last, it looked fabulous for like three seconds after washing ... there's a lot of styling details in the Focus mk3.5 (I keep thinking there are dents in the rear wings etc) and the magnet grey is just light enough that you can see them ... :)

I do like the rear skirt on the mk3 Zetec S

I pooped myself the first time I spotted those on mine, I thought someone had hit it for a second!:D

As a list of has / doesn't have (from ETIS) - I've cut out some of the standard stuff ... like "with roof"

It's interesting that it's got more "manual" things (rear windows, seat adjustment etc), but I could argue that this is more to do with sporty weight saving rather than penny pinching ;)

But it has a big spoiler (check) and lovely alloys (check) so I'm happy :)

EDIT : wait a minute I'll try that again it's supposed to be in table format

Roper,

 

How did you get that S badge on the front grill? Is there a special mount for it?

The badge is on a screw and you just slide the backing plate in behind the grill and line up then screw in the hole, put the bolt on the other side then the easest way i found was to hold the backing plate and the bolt, then spin the badge till its tight! Took 2 min to do pal!

I've had my eye on the Focus ZS for some time now, and will be taking delivery of it later this week!  While the standard ZS looks great I'm hoping to make a few subtle mods so it doesn't look like every other ZS out there.  I will be following this thread closely for any recommendations.

I was unsure whether I should get the Deep Impact Blue (which by the way looks great) or Magnetic, but eventually went for the later with Appearance Pack 2.  Loving the flyeye tint and the S badge.

A little unsure about the flyeye tints after reading some of the comments but think this would look great on the Magnetic, so may go ahead with it.

I've taken a quick  look for the S badge on eBay which I can only find in red, blue and black.  I'd like to put on the black S badge but think it would probably just get lost amongst the black grill.  Not particularly keen on either the red or blue with the car being a dark colour.

Update: In addition to the above I'm keeping the 18" 8 Y spoke alloys - but considering getting them in a darker colour (maybe gunmetal - open to suggestions) - How can I best achieve this? Spray paint, Plastidip or other options? New to this so a little unsure - any help will be much appreciated.

Anyone have any thoughts, or pics which would be great to help make up my mind.  I'll post pics up once I take dlivery. :)

Bugger ... that was the cheapest upgrade ever on my mk1 Kuga Zetec, just put (LED) bulbs in the holders to make it a Titanium ;) ...was hoping to do the same on the Focus ... I also miss the interior mood lighting on the Kuga (two discrete orange lights shining down on the centre console area) ... I can't find anything in the centre console in the Focus when it's dark ...

I'm I right in thinking they no longer have the looms in place anymore? I was hoping it would be the same...slightly disappointed as I have it in my 2013 Fiesta Zetec and it does look nice.

It's going to be very difficult and costly fitting ambient lighting to a mk3.5 focus that doesn't have it. There are all sorts of looms and modules missing before you even factor in the lights themselves. I spent a great deal of time looking in to it on my previous Zetec S.

I picked up my Focus ZS 1.5 TDCi on Thursday. I managed to take a few pics for your appreciation yesterday. 

This is the first car I've owned (not a lease or company car) so I'm fairly new to mods etc but quite practical. I'll no doubt be picking your brains and seeking your help on here. The plan so far is as follows:

1) Upgrade interior courtesy lights to LED. Has anyone done this that is able to recommend any suppliers of white LED bulbs? I've watched the following tutorial but it's a company in the US (also checked the thread for bulbs list but came up with nothing for the Mk 3 or 3.5). 

 

 

2) Apply 'S' badge to front grille. Undecided on whether it should be red (which is quite popular) or blue, which I think looks different and would compliment the magnetic colour and allow the car to be a bit ore individual to me .

 https://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/201541639613 

3) I was hoping that the looms would be present for adding interior footwell lights (blue), but it seems that this is no longer the case in the Mk3.5. Has anyone managed to find these looks or add this in themselves and have a guide for this?

4) I have the Appearance Pack 2 on my Focuz ZS so have the 18" 8 spoke Y alloys which I really like. With the car being a dark grey I was thinking of darkening the alloys (similar to the colour in the final pic of the BMW 4 series - ?gun metal?). What's the best option? Plasti Dip, wrapping, spraying?

5) If I decide on doing 4 I'll probably also de-chrome the front grille and chrome window line, depending on what it looks like.

I think for now that is as much as I'll do. I maybe do the headlights but need to read up on the legality of HID, xenon, bi xenon and fly eyes/tints.

Would someone with some photoshop skills please give me an idea of what 2, 4 and 5 would look like? If you need additional pics I'll be happy to provide these, but I think I've got all angles covered.

Apologies for the long post and look forward to sharing progress and finding inspiration in here.

Thanks Alex - although that is a real shame like other have said previously. It would have suited the car really well. They've done a great job of styling it, and seem to have overlooked the small thing.

 

also I noticed the wing mirrors - did they pull them off a transit? They're huge and square!! Ha

Hi, this is my 2015 Zetec s 1.5tdci ,  looked at all the colour choices (loved the deep impact and magnetic ) but just thought the race red stood out so much more ....  de-chrome and black vinyl roof coming soon hopefully 😃     ....  and like other guys have posted I'm GUTTED it doesn't have the ambient lighting fitted 😢
