In Topic: Is The Zs Lowered More Than The Black Edition?

13 February 2015 - 04:32 PM

Just a quick update - it seems Willy was indeed right. The car has dropped to 62.5 cm (so it's dropped a cm compared to when I originally wrote)

 

A few more miles and it'll sit at exactly the same height as my ZS.

 

Once again thanks everyone for your time :-)

Sorry for the late reply - the Black Edition does indeed run on 205/40-17, but I fitted mine with 195/45-16 for winter (and thus 16 inch alloys) - my summer tyres are the original 17 inch.

 

I think Willy is right that it's just because the springs have been wedged up, hadn't thought about that.

 

So I'll give it a couple of weeks and see what happens.

 

Thanks for your help everyone :-)

Ah sorry I didn't see that other thread - it's perfect. Thank you very much :-)


In Topic: Looking For Some Advice - Red Edition V Zetec S

I'd say go for the red/black and just get the option to remove the contrasting colors.

 

At least in Denmark you can have a black edition without red roof and mirrors - I think it still has the red outline on the front though.

 

What's different between the red/black and ZS:

- 140 PS instead of 125

- 210NM instead of 200

- Lower gear ratios, which makes especially 4th gear a lot quicker (Beats the mountune by almost 2 seconds)

- You need to turn the steering wheel less to make the same turn, that is it turns the actual wheels more when you turn the steering wheel to the same angle. (Hard to explain causs I don't know the proper English word for it)

- Color scheme (ofc.)

 

Personally I love the part about the steering wheel as my old Honda Civic was the same way - it just feels more responsive and eager.

 

I'm driving a ZS but have ordered a black edition, which I'll get in about a week - my wife then gets the ZS :-D


In Topic: How Do I Clean Small Black Spots Off?

I'd also recommend swapping your sponge for a wash mitt too :)

 

 

Never heard of those before, they seem very handy - can you recommend any specific ones ?
