I have an ecoboost in the Zetec trim.  Yes, it has stop/start but I spend so much of my work commute in traffic and crawling along slowly, that I switch it off.  If I know I'm going to be sitting for longer than 10 seconds for example, I will push the button and use it, but otherwise it's just switched off as a matter of course when I start up my car.


I absolutely LOVE the ecoboost engine and I went from a 1.25 82ps.  I could not believe the difference when I first took it out.  I didn't even test drive one first.  I had researched a bit and when I went to the garage I saw the Candy Blue model sitting there and I asked where could I sign !!!!  


Stick to your guns.  If you want an ecoboost model then go for it.  The difference in the 2 is night and day, trust me, and you will just adore the turbo !!  :)

Mine was definitely red this morning as it was -1 when I set off for work today.  Goes amber anything above 0 degrees as it's pretty much been on all week-end !!!

Ooooh, that would really annoy me if the "chrome" looked like that all the time.  I wouldn't know what to do about that if it's not just water spots.  Sorry, and good luck getting a solution.

Hi.  I rarely actually wash mine (with water) and when I do, that annoys me as well.   99% of the time I use Showroom Shine (waterless cleaner) and it takes the chrome up really well.  Might be worth trying something like that as after I have used water on mine I have to go round sorting out the chrome bits.    Hope you get it sorted.

I'm getting mine done today and I was quoted approx £150 for it.
