In Topic: Zetec S Ecoboost 1.0

Hi guys, trying to decide on best headlamp (dip) upgrade for my 2013 Zetec S. Want improved power/range but they need to last as well. A lot of lamps seem only good for 18-24months max.

My currrent fav is Osram Silverstar 2.0 which are meant to be up to 60% more power.

How would these compare to the standard H7's (cannot find out what the standard lamps are from Ford)? Is any more heat generated by this upgrade/likely to damage the plastic headlamp unit?

Cheers for any guidance.

Wondered if anyone could recommend some good front headlight dip and main/DRL replacements for the new 1.0 Zs. Want better (legal) performance, especially the dips, but long lasting lamps too. Ideally cool white (not blue)? Appreciate any pointers guys. Would replace the sides and indicators (de-tango) at same time. Wish someone would make decent LED replacements for the DRLs :(

I used a small belt sander and gently sanded away the space I needed then bought a couple of S logos off ebay for £2.95 each which just stick on.  Looks good as well.

That looks really good. Very nice job. Think I'm gonna have to do something v. similar. You don't have a link to the ebay badges, by any chance, do you mate?

Wondered if anyone has any ideas on where from/how to fix a red 'S' to the grille (similar to the ST style).

Also what's the best way to improve protection of the rad etc from crud / stones; the honeycomb black grille does seem to have pretty wide gaps, wouldn't want to suffocate it tho! Wondered about a finer black plastic mesh behind the grille, if it's easy to remove/replace?
