I getting my Focus Zetec S in a few weeks and have noticed that they donít come with "S" badges although the brochure states they do.

Ford trying to save money?

can anyone out there confirm this?

the zetec s is just a standard zetec with the usual sport trim ie sports suspension and seats also the bodykit the s badge should be on the front fender only

Thanks for your reply.

I saw one the other day and it had no ZETEC badge on the back either, only the 1.6.

I may sound strange but I would like to advertise that fact that I would be driving a zetec S (poor mans ST)

I may mention this to the dealer next week and see if they will apply the badges for free.

The car is New and the chap that owns it is a ford salesman, i asked him about it but he said that's how it came.

I know it sounds petty but I like the look of the S logo but dont want to spend £10 doing it.

Hi mate the first batch we got through a while ago had no S badges on at all but the rest are coming through with them on. The location is on the front Wing low down from wing mirror near indicator. Also says Zetec S on back

Try ebay or your local dealer, your looking at around £10 - £12

I had the same problem with my new Zetec S I bought in February.
The Ford Dealership I bought it from ordered up 3 for me, fixed them, and charged back Ford...... :)

I'm picking mine up this week, and as you say it has no badges just 1.8 on the rear. Would be good to get hold of some. Also with this one being registered early 2009 it does not have the starter button is this correct?

My dads mondeo has ZETEC S on the back and so does the Fiesta so i dont see why the focus wouldnt? its better than the standard Zetec with the big alloys etc and sporty looks so i would want the "S" on the back aswell so people know im driving the next model up :D
Have to say i only like black cars but that Blue is really nice ;) . Stand out loads.

It looks similar to the S on a focus S max. Its good to be picky about details like this because people buying the car from you in future might want the same thing.

i was told by a mate who has a mate who works for ford the reason theres no s badge is that they fetch such high prices for a badge that they were forever getting nicked think about it 10 quid on ebay each you whip 6 or 7 each time off the new cars on the forecourt thats a fair bit of cash ide leave it off as it wont stay on long my mate had his nicked in asda car park in the afternoon on a busy day money wasted to be honest
