59 Zetec S To The New St - Worth The Switch?

11 August 2013 - 04:48 PM

I'm the proud owner of a black Zetec S, and have been for 2 years. I have made some adaptations, purely cosmetic, including adding a white strip of DRLs under the headlamp units, upgrading the lights to LED or otherwise better, and finally adding the custom grille at the front. It makes for one proud owner.

And then we have the ST - what a car! A really top drive. Apart from the opinion dividing front end, better in every way. Personally I think both old and new are good looking cars. But this is the question - is it worth upgrading to? I thought I'd pose this question to a more objective audience on here rather than friends/family who seem to think that they're identical (true to an extent) and a car is 'just a car'.

What do you all think? Anyone out the made a similar change? Again, worth it? I was thinking about adding the Mountune engine upgrade too.

Long message, I know - my bad. Thanks in advance guys, really stumped on this one!

The New Drls Found On All New Audis (2012/3 -) - Can They Be Found Elsewhere?

09 February 2013 - 07:30 PM

Hi there -

I have a Zetec S which I've fitted with a strip of white LED DRLs under the headlamp units. The strip of lights show individual lights as seen in the DRLs of the first gen. Audi R8. I've noticed out on the road that all new Audi models have a new form of DRLs in a continuous light 'bar'. Rather than seeing individual lights, it is one strip of light. In my opinion, these look much crisper and cleaner than the ones I have installed. You can also find these 'bar DRLs' (as I call them), in various configurations, on some Mercedes and Volvos too.

Firstly (if anyone knows what the hell I'm on about), does anyone know what they're called??
Secondly, can they be bought and installed as with my previous set?

All help is welcome - I am completely stumped by this one...
