Ambient Lighting For Your 2013 Zetec S Anyone...?

07 August 2014 - 05:11 PM

The 2013 Zetec S only comes with the illuminated cup holder, you 'can' buy the ambient bar that goes above the glove box.

 

but what about the ambient lights on the driver and passenger doors?

 

Well i have a pair!!

 

They 'are' for sale in that particular section, but as they are for a fiesta only, hope its ok to mention here as they are very car specific.  I have the lighting kit and wiring for each door, they were made to order and not cheap, but i found the pin in the door hinge connector that powers them properly, you do not need to go to fords and have them switched on!

 

Hardest bit is removing the door card and hinge connector block, which is actually really easy!!!! They are ready to be fitted, the hole in the door card will already exists, just look under where the window switch is.  Asking £40 for both!

 

If you can come down and collect, i will give you a hand fitting them......for free to FOC members if you make a small contribution to my charity. (the amount i leave up to you)  ;)

 

They are fitted standard to the Titanium, X and ST3 models only, and if you want to add that little extra i also wired in ambient lights to the top pockets where the chrome door opener goes, and ALL work with the rest of the ambient lights in your car as it should, and look awesome!!!!

 

Let me know, postage available if you are too far away and i will provide install guidance and photos to aid you.  Let me know...  :)


Time To Say Goodbye To My Zetec S.... And Hello To My.....

05 August 2014 - 02:47 PM

Well, life had been pretty rough the last few months, and after talking to my dealers a few months back about it, I returned my 2013 Zetec S TDCI, and yes... 

 

Yep... You guessed it, brand spanking ST3!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D

 

Spirit Blue

Rear Parking Sensors

Centre Head Rest

Style pack

 

Eh, nothing else to fit to it!!

 

Oh my god....  The colour is amazing, after a quick polish and clean, it is just a joy to drive, and already noted a few additions I did not know about...  ST3's have total closure!!!!  Either use the fob or the door button for 3 seconds and they open as well as close which I thought was only the closure on this system.  Plus it also has some very nice ambient lighting in the roof each side of the interior light!

 

It also now reads my texts from my phone and the woman's voice on the Sync system sounds more......human!  Pronunciation is far better! Plus the deal I got on my old ZS and the amazing deal I got on the ST3 is just... Well, the less said the better!  But I cannot speak any more highly of Hendy Ford.

The insurance was no different, to what the annual was on my ZS, more pictures to follow later..


Please Please Show Your Support For Wave 105 Cash For Kids Cycle Madagascar 2015!

08 July 2014 - 02:41 PM

Hello all Ford Owners Club members....

 

I have signed up to an amazing charity that helps local and UK children, and I will be cycling just under 500km across Madagascar in May 2015, for Wave 105 Cash For Kids Appeal.

 

Please show your support for a great childrens charity who are commited to providing support to local and UK children under the age of 18 who are physically, emotionally, financially and socially disadvantaged. Additionally they support many out reach  and drop in centre's who, without cash for kids, could not offer these invaluable services.  There is after all, one simple goal... To turn sadness into happiness, tears into laughter, and there is nothing better then the sound of a child's laughter, and many happy faces... Thank you!

 

This is by fat the biggest challenge I have undertaken to date, the last 6 months have been very tough on me, both personally and health wise.  Recovering from a serious operation in December, bed ridden for 2 months I lost over 13 kg and suffered muscle waste.  So to get me strong and fit again, I have committed myself to this challenge, I have pledged over £300 of my own money so far.  I cannot think of a better way to give up my spare time, then supporting Wave 105 Cash for Kids Appeal.

 

You can show your support in the following ways:

 

I HAVE A NEW DEDICATED PAYPAL ADDRESS THAT YOU CAN PAY STRAIGHT INTO.. cashforkids-grant1@outlook.com

 

I can then forward the month every 2 weeks or every month on behalf of the Ford Owners Club Members, I can then use my details to gift aid donations for that extra amount!  And please leave your reply in this thread that you have done so, so I can add you to the list...

 

You can donate what ever you can spare direct to my Every day hero page too: https://cyclemadagas....com/uk/grant-1

 

 


Hello!!!!! Been Ages Away!!!

24 May 2014 - 04:17 PM

Hey everyone,

 

Not been on here for a while, had a lot going on with a recent operation that went a bit wrong and subsequent ill health.  As a result things have changed some what life style wise and one of them was my lovely Candy Blue Zetec S TDCi is now up for sale.....   :cry: :cry: :( :(

 

Spec'd up like mad and probably the only Zetec S to have a Sony DAB Satellite Navigation and Sony 8 speaker upgrade system from the factory, in it. 

 

Plus I have a brand new Steering wheel I bought from the dealers with the Cruise Controls on it.  Was ordered from the Titanium X spec list so the wheel is thicker and more plush leather than even the Zetec S steering wheel, plus its got the ice blue illumination controls and the chrome effect (not silver) centre piece on it. 

 

Anyway, go to the Cars.. and Parts.. For Sale sections to find out more. Hoping to be at the Ford Fair 2014 in August, and depending what I go for next???????????????????????????????????

 

Anyhow, just wanted to politely put the word out on above, and come say hello.. 


Ford Testing A 138Bp Ecoboost Zetec S For 2014!!!

26 October 2013 - 06:14 PM

Hey all,

 

I have been doing some thinking and long term planning in the driving seat, and during this i read online and been told at a few dealers, that ford are currently testing a 138bp Ecoboost engine for 2014 Fiesta.  It will be an increase of 15 bp to keep competition with other makers in its class available for the Zetec S model.

 

Welcome news i say, i think Ford are worried that Renault and Peugeot etc will run away with the market and greater horses under the bonnet.  The gap between the ST and ZS is quite big and this will reduce that, and depending on the mpg figures will probably go ahead.   

 

What do you all think...  Has anyone else heard about this, it certainly has not been mentioned here from what i have searched.  I have no idea on gearbox selection i.e 5 or 6 gears, or if they will solely concentrate on the engine, or other areas..  Styling, interior or wheels etc.

 

I read that it may be available in january or march 2014.
